Quick Peeks 10/14/2022

Here are some quick updates on what’s happening in politics and government this week:

  • We have a special legislative session!  Exciting stuff.  Governor Gavin Newsom has said he will call for a special legislative session in December in an effort to punish oil companies for “rank price gouging”.  Calpeek does not know why the Governor is waiting until December, although a cynic might suggest it has something to do with an election that is just a few weeks away. 


  • Billionaire real estate developer Rick Caruso’s campaign has implemented a field operation that includes hundreds of paid precinct walkers.  That is not unusual in a city election unless the city is as big as Los Angeles.  A field operation that size takes millions of dollars to effectively implement.  Talk around the water cooler says Caruso will spend, at least, $10 million on just the field operation.
