Ronald Reagan Legacy Project Commends Governor Newsom for Proclaiming Ronald Reagan Day in California 

182 dedications to Reagan worldwide 

The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project commends Governor Gavin Newsom for proclaiming February 6 as Ronald Reagan Day in California. He joins a large bipartisan group of governors across the nation in commemorating the birthdate of America’s 40th President. 

President Reagan worked to restore the American spirit and instill a sense of pride in the nation during a time of immense challenges. He believed strongly in the power of the individual and worked tirelessly to promote these ideals both at home and abroad. His sunny optimism and unique ability to connect with the American people directly endeared him to millions of Americans. 

During his two terms from 1981 to 1989, President Reagan’s focus on individual liberty and economic freedom led to one of the longest economic expansions in American history. And his “peace through strength” approach led to the demise of the Soviet Union and freed millions of people from the horrors of communism. 

“Ronald Reagan created the modern Republican party of limited government, low taxes and a strong national defense.  He used that party to change the nation.  And then he changed the world,” said Grover Norquist, chairman of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project. 

Each year, the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project works to have every governor proclaim February 6 as Ronald Reagan Day in honor of President Reagan’s birthday. The Project also tracks and encourages the dedication of roads, schools, and other local landmarks to Reagan throughout the world. There are currently 158 domestic dedications to the former president, and 24 dedications internationally
