I've noticed over the last several weeks that Gavin Newsom is putting in quite a bit of time on the CA campaign trail in an effort to explore running for governor. It was clear that being our mayor was a stepping stone to something else.
But, I wonder if he's aware at how little he's done as a mayor. Oh yeah, he was a "renegade" for same sex marriage, what a risky ploy as mayor of SF. The man who was such a "leader" with care not cash has lead to....nothing. Our streets are covered more than ever with homeless people.
Oh and the 49ers are almost certain to leave.
He's spent quite a bit of time away from the controls of a ship that is at a minimum far from right. It feels like we've got the liberal version of George W. Bush in control. Things are going down the toilet?
No prob, I'll take action traveling up and down CA trying to pimp myself to be guv.
Ironically, he's running against Jerry Brown, who I would have happily traded for Gavin Newsom as our mayor in the past.
In some ways I hope he does succeed in become Governor...of Hawaii.
