Walt Disney Co. Chairman, Bob Iger, Quits California Gov. Newsom’s Economic Recovery Task Force

Walt Disney Co. Chairman, Bob Iger, has quit California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s economic recovery task force, a Disney spokesperson confirmed Thursday, October 1.

 

As shared by The Sacramento Bee: The spokesperson would not say why or precisely when Iger left the task force, but the news comes as the Newsom administration is preparing to release guidance on theme park reopening that the industry is criticizing.

In a Thursday afternoon statement, the California Attractions and Parks Association urged the governor not to finalize a draft of the reopening guidance that the association saw earlier that day.

“While we are aligned on many of the protocols and health and safety requirements, there are many others that need to be modified if they are to lead to a responsible and reasonable amusement park reopening plan,” the association wrote. “We ask the Governor not to finalize guidance for amusement parks before engaging the industry in a more earnest manner, listening to park operators’ expertise, and collaborating with the industry on a plan that will allow for amusement parks to reopen responsibly while still keeping the health and safety of park employees and guests a top priority.”
