California has been plagued by extreme weather events, with floods now compounding the issues of droughts and wildfires.

Governor Gavin Newsom promised $42 million in relief aid to a community suffering from flood damage.

However, only $300,000 ended up being available, leaving the community with little support. Breitbart exposed the discrepancy between Newsom’s promise and the actual amount available.

The funds were supposed to come from a COVID relief package provided by former President Trump, but the Pajaro community, predominantly made up of Hispanic farm workers, received far less than anticipated.

Most residents are set to receive a mere $600 check, which is insufficient for covering flood damages. Many insurance policies don’t cover flood damage from storms or natural disasters, further exacerbating the situation.

Newsom was aware of the $300,000 limit but chose to mislead the community with the inflated figure of $42 million.

His actions appear to be driven by a desire for praise and recognition, rather than a genuine concern for the well-being of the residents. The United Way’s president was left to deliver the disappointing news that residents would receive only 1% of the promised aid.

Such behavior from the governor exemplifies the lack of leadership and accountability often seen in left-leaning politicians.

In conclusion, Newsom’s broken promise, the mismanagement of COVID relief funds provided by former President Trump, and the ongoing struggle of flood-affected communities underscore the need for improved leadership in California and beyond.
