Ronn Owens spoke with the GOP candidate for Governor of California John Cox ahead of the upcoming election.

Cox dives into his feelings on the state of affairs in California, discussing his disgust with the legislature in Sacramento, the gas tax we will be voting on in next month’s election, and the support he receives from President Trump,

Cox also touches on the issue of homelessness in San Francisco and his belief that inaction by local officials has prevented the city from creating a better tourist climate. He also answers whether or not he thinks he would be able to get anything done as Governor, given both the overwhelmingly Democratic majority in the Capital and his dismissive attitude towards the Senators and Assemblypersons during his campaign.

Ronn points out that there are very few people who wouldn’t share his concerns, but wonders what possible solutions the candidate is proposing specifically.
