Read Gov. Newsom's Annotated State Of The State Address From Dodger Stadium
Governor Gavin Newsom delivered his State of the State address Tuesday evening — and he did it from Dodger Stadium. You can watch it above and read the speech as annotated and fact-checked by our politics reporter, Libby Denkmann, as well as reporters and editors from CapRadio in Sacramento.
The State of the State address is typically delivered in front of legislators at the state Capitol.
Newsom's office said ahead of the speech that he spoke from Chavez Ravine for a few reasons:
- Dodger Stadium is one of the first community vaccination sites in California
- Newsom wanted to remember the nearly 55,000 Californians who've died of COVID-19 thus far and Dodger Stadium seats approximately that number of people
The pandemic was a focal point of Newsom's address as it is for many people, especially since we're nearing the one-year anniversary of the first statewide stay-at-home order, which was issued March 19, 2020.
