CHICO, Calif. - Former San Diego Mayor visited Chico on Tuesday to show his support for the recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom and campaign for governor.

Kevin Faulconer, republican, served two terms as Mayor of San Diego and he hopes to become a candidate this year if the recall effort gets enough signatures.

“This recall is going to happen, there's no doubt in my mind,” Faulconer said.

The recall effort needs nearly 400,000 more signatures to be certified before March 17.

The former mayor said he would make changes this year if he becomes governor.

“I have an opportunity to get in immediately this year and make the change, not just on our economy, COVID, our schools, all the things that people are clamoring for action and not just rhetoric. I'm gonna bring in a whole new team,” Faulconer said.

Faulconer also said he supports opening public schools full-time.
