12:00 pm
that is the one i love. that is why i am so confident in our future. make no mistake. there are powerful forces against us. politicians in washington, drug companies, a gun lobby that is willing to sacrifice the lives of our children to line their pockets. and polluters who threaten our coastline and payday lenders who target our most vulnerable. in other places, interests like
12:01 pm
these have a tight grip on power. but in california we have the power to stand up to them, and we will. we face serious challenges. some that have been deferred for too long. even in a booming economy, there is a sense that things are not as predictable as they once were. that we must run faster to stay in place. stagnant wages, cost to continue to rise, rent, utilities, the doctor. the basics are out of reach. we face a gulf between the rich and everyone else. it's not just inequality of wealth, it's inequality of opportunity. we have a homeless epidemic that should keep each and every one of us up at night. a achievement gap in our schools that holds back millions of our kids.
12:02 pm
too many children know the ache of chronic hunger. i have met families in the state who have the improvise aware to talk to their babies in at night, making nest out of blankets on the floor, or dressers into makeshift cradle to they cannot afford a credit. these are not policy problems, they are moral imperatives. and as long as they persist, each and every one of us is diminished. we are all touched by the human condition. whether we are homeless, jobless, or we can pay the bills, or have safe drinking water at home. we all have our own frailties. our own vulnerabilities. we are susceptible to suffering and disaster. let us resolve to follow the example of the rescuers, and rebuilders in paradise, and
12:03 pm
make sure that fellow california residents share in that compassion and empathy that makes our burdens and anxieties easier to bear. our politics don't always reward taking on the hardest problems. the results of our work may not be evident for a very long time. that cannot be our concern. we will prepare for uncertain times ahead. we will be prudent stewards of taxpayer dollars. paying down debt and meeting obligations. we will build and safeguard the largest physical reserve of any state in american history. i want to be clear.
12:04 pm
we will be bold, we will aim high, and we will work like how to get there. here in california, we will prove the people of good faith and firm will can still come together to achieve big things. we will offer an alternative to the corruption and incompetence in the white house. our government will be progressive, principled, and always on the side of the people. this will take courage. i know that that is a word that means different things to different people. for me that means doing what is right even when it is hard. that will be the foundation of our administration . we will be california for all. we will not be divided by
12:05 pm
world, urban, north, south, coastal, inland. we will strive for solidarity. and face our most threatening problems together. it is with deep faith in our state and future that i ask you to join me in the work ahead. let us be pioneering optimist that look to the future. now with trepidation, but with creativity and boundless energy. this is a time for courage. and we will rise to meet at. our state has been on a journey since the worst of the great recession. we were $27 billion in debt, unemployment was 12%, the worst credit rating of any state in the nation. today our economy is a larger
12:06 pm
but all then four nations in the world. we created 3 million jobs, and put away billions of dollars for a rainy day. where washington has failed on the challenge of climate change. california has led, setting bold targets for lowering greenhouse emissions. so much of this progress happened under the watch and the leadership of governor brown.
12:07 pm
it has been an honor to serve with him these past eight years, and to learn from him as his lieutenant governor, and throughout my lifetime. when he last took the oath of odyssey reflected on apparel from the sermon on the mound. which tells of a foolish man who built his house on sand. and the storm washed it away. but a wise man sought founder foundation, and when the floods came in the wind blew and beat on the house that he built, it did not fall because it was founded on a rock. for eight years california has built a foundation of rock. our job is not to rest on that foundation, it is to build our house upon it. now more than ever, we california residents know how much i house matters, and children matter. because so
12:08 pm
many of our neighbors have lost theirs. let us build a house stronger than the coming storms but open to the world. house that provides shelter to all that needed, and sanctuary to all who seek it. work opportunity abounds, true california house. sunkist, dreams out, and built with the sweat of honest work. we will not have one house for the rich, and one house for the poor. one for the native born and one for the rest. one house for one california.
12:09 pm
because what is a house, but a home. in california is our home. in our home every child should be loved, fed, and safe. my wife jennifer and i have four children. there's nothing that's more important than giving them a good and happy life. all children, not just children of a governor and a filmmaker should have a good life in california. they should not be ripped away from their parents at the border. norse they should not be left hungry as politicians pour billions into a wall that should never be built.
12:10 pm
this is exactly how scripted we will support parents, they need support. trust me to give their kids the love and support that they need. especially in those critical early years of life. in our home no one should live
12:11 pm
in constant fear of eviction, or spend their entire paycheck to keep a roof over head. we are committed to launching a marshall plan for affordable housing. and we will lift up the fight against homelessness from a local matter to a statewide initiative. in our home every person should have access to quality, affordable healthcare. faraway judges and politicians may turn back are progress. we will not waver in our pursuit of guaranteed healthcare for all californians. we will use our market power
12:12 pm
and are moral power to demand fair prices for prescription drugs. we will stop stigmatizing mental health and start supporting it. and we will always protect a woman's right to choose. in our home we believe in justice for all. we will defend the progress that we have made to reform our criminal just the system. we will continue the fight against over incarceration and crowding.
12:13 pm
and we will in the outrage of private prisons in california for once in for all. in our home working people deserve fair pay. we will fight not just for growth, but for inclusive sustainable growth. we will connect higher education and skill training. in the time of swift and unsettling change. all california residents should be able to rely on a measured to build a dream and an opportunity. if it's a farm, a bookstore, they will get our support. wall california is personal to
12:14 pm
me. i won't forget the day that i got a $20 tip busing tables at a restaurant. busboys don't always get tips like that. i know it sounds strange, but it changed my life. it meant that my hard work mattered motivated me to keep going. eight years later i started my own business. i know how much hard work and sacrifice is behind that. california must never turn its back on the entrepreneurial spirit that defines us. in our home when trouble comes we will stand together.
12:15 pm
right jennifer? i am glad this is the rehearsal . we will get to this tomorrow. when fire strikes, and kids cry , when the earth shakes we will be there for each other. as a former mayor i learned the wisdom of an african proverb. if you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far go together. to my friends in the legislature democrats and republicans alike. i promise you an open door and an open mind.
12:16 pm
let's not forget that this is not only the quarters of the capital. i know the pressure that law enforcement faces. the only way to fix the problem is to be empowered to lead the way. i intend to represent all of california. not just those who voted for me. i recognize that many members of the world community feel that sacramento doesn't care about them, that we don't see. icu, and i care about you. and i will represent you with pride.
12:17 pm
this notion that we are all in this together is a powerful one. it is how i was raised. my father passed away just before christmas. he was a judge, for him justice was more than a title it was in his bones. he believed that all people should be treated fairly and with respect. that has always been a bedrock california value to me. 15 years ago when i was a new mayor and i heard politicians sneering at california values, i remember what my father
12:18 pm
taught me. it's never the wrong time to do the right thing. and that is what we did. in san francisco, two women who've been in love for 50 years had the courage to stand up and say these two most powerful words. i do. and thousands more followed it took a long time but love one. now is the time for courage. it's my pledge to every california resident. no matter what comes out of, i will have your back. if we do this right the progress we make will never be unmade. cesar chavez said you cannot un-
12:19 pm
educate the person that has learned to read. you cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. you can oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. there is a story that we tell about our history from setters milled to steve jobs gorge. a place where anything is possible. this is the coast of dreams, that is true. but you shouldn't have to find gold, make it in the movies, or start a billion-dollar starter. it is a dream for everyone in california. everyone should have a good job with fair pay. every child should have a great school and a teacher that is supportive and respective every person should be able to go to
12:20 pm
college without crushing debt, or get the training that they need to compete. every senior should have the opportunity to retire with security and live at home with dignity. that is the california dream. it's not take get rich quick. to work hard and share in the rewards. the work we have spoken of today cannot be the job of a governor alone. can only be achieved with the spirit of a young dreamer. young dreamer said i wasn't born in california, but california was born in me. there is a spark and california courage born in all of us.
12:21 pm
now more than ever american needs california. they need the guiding light of our values. this is our charge, and that is our calling. now let's get to work. thank you all very much. thank you for indulging my kid. i am humbled and honored. thank you to each and everyone of you. we just heard from california's 40th the governor. gavin newsom. his whole family joined him on stage. is baby boy dodge stole the show for a little while. the governor talking about early childhood programs. let's talk about our analyst.
12:22 pm
we heard about homelessness, healthcare, and the incompetence of the trump administration. >> no major surprises. gavin newsom has the momentum. the question will he continue to sell the sizzle? that's going to be the challenge moving forward. he's promised some very ambitious goals. >> when he was the mayor of sam cisco there was a homeless problem it was something he was not able to fix. he has talked about this in his speech. this is a statewide problem. is this a city and county issue? >> you can take homelessness and elevated at a statewide level. is going to take housing, the housing crisis and elevate
12:23 pm

12:24 pm
divided. he talked about different parts of the state, and differing values. one of the big overtures. >> at the same time drawing strong contrast to the trump administration. is going talk about immigration and security, you really got to put forward a counter to that. he is building on that beginning right now >> do you believe that there is a lot of pressure on him? he tipped his cap to the outgoing governor brown. it's always better to take over losing team because you can only go up. >> i think that's a great question. we've seen ambition
12:25 pm
and confidence. when you get it checked by something that happens in the legislature or something comes around that you are not anticipated. how do you make a tug and temper expectations. we have seen someone is trying to develop their lyrical maturity. and still move forward that's a big challenge. >> it's never the wrong time to do the right thing. >> a big day in sacramento. and a big day in oakland. oakland mayor schaaf has been sworn in. and expect delays around levi stadium leading up to the college football championship game tonight.
