Four Inland Empire residents are candidates on the Sept. 14 recall ballot and hope to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom if a majority of California voters agree to oust him before his term ends in 2022.
A recall candidate needs only a plurality of votes to become governor if the recall succeeds.
Resides: Her campaign uses a Riverside mailing address
Platform: She is running with the slogan “Make California Gold Again.” Stephens describes herself on her campaign website as “a wife, mother of five beautiful children, a pastor, community leader, and motivational speaker.”
“We have incredible people, incredible businesses, and incredible resources,” her website read. “However, the people of California have been shut down, abused and not protected — and have not been given the freedom to thrive. It is time for the people to be spoken for.”If elected, Stephens, who states she is pro-life and a defender of free speech and the right to bear arms, plans to cut taxes and regulations and “(cut) billions of dollars of spending to unnecessary unproductive causes.”
She supports school choice — “There has (been) so much unhealthy indoctrination in schools” — and allowing home-schooled kids and charter schoolchildren to take part in public school programs. Stephens also supports allowing people to opt out of vaccines without having to give a reason and opposes coronavirus restrictions on in-person worship services.
