Hilarious: Liberal California Governor Gavin Newsom Gets Reality Check After Asking Public For New State Coin Design

Coin ideas from public included issues facing CA, like homelessness, crime, immigration

Fox News

(Fox News) California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday asked for the public’s help in designing a new $1 coin to honor the state’s innovations, but many of the responses pointed to anything but positive accomplishments for which the state was once proudly known.

When people outside California think of innovation, they think of things like Silicon Valley and the tech boom as well as leading the way in wildlife conservation.


But lately, businesses have been fleeing the blue state because of its failure to address crime, homelessness and the escalating cost of living.

Newsom and the state legislature have been harshly criticized over his failure to address the state’s $73 billion budget deficit, with some pointing to overspending as the problem.

Others say they are frustrated with the governor for things like pointing his attention toward a national pro-abortion campaign instead of issues directly affecting his own state – things like an insurance crisis, affordability crisis, rising crime, wildfire risks and skyrocketing electric costs.

Continuing with his apparent failure to focus on the problems affecting his state, Newsom took time on Thursday to get input from his constituents regarding a state coin.

“Calling all members of the Tortured Coin Designers Department,” Newsom wrote on social media. “CA is getting its own $1 coin to honor innovation, slated to be issued in 2026 – and we need your help! What is a CA innovation you’d like to see featured on the coin? Send ideas to:”

The constituents did not hold back on providing the governor with ideas that they thought seemed fitting for the state’s new $1 coin.

Jim Stanley, the press secretary for the State Assembly Republicans, sent his ideas to Newsom with a letter shared by the California Globe, highlighting the governor’s accomplishments while in office.
