Mayor[3] Gavin Christopher Newsom (born October 10, 1967) is the current mayor of San Francisco. A Democrat, Newsom was elected mayor in 2003, succeeding Willie Brown and becoming San Francisco's youngest mayor in 100 years.[4] In 2004, Newsom gained national attention when he issued a directive to the San Francisco city-county clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.[5] The unexpected move brought national attention to the issues of gay marriage and gay rights, solidifying political support for Newsom in San Francisco and in the gay community, and causing several other states to change their laws concerning marriage and gay rights.[6][7] Image File history File links Gavin-newsom. ...

Before his political career, Newsom graduated from Santa Clara University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts in political science. He started the PlumpJack Wine Shop in 1992 that grew into a multi-million dollar enterprise. He was first appointed by Willie Brown to serve on San Francisco's Parking and Traffic Commission in 1996, and was appointed the following year as Supervisor. Newsom drew voter attention with his Care Not Cash program, designed to move homeless people into city assisted care. He defeated Matt Gonzales by 6% in his race for mayor in 2003.

Newsom is viewed in many political circles as a potential candidate for Governor in the 2010 gubernatorial election.[10][11] In late 2007 and early 2008, Newsom met with Democratic strategists and supporters to discuss a run for governor.[12] He endorsed Hillary Clinton for President in 2007, serving as one of her campaign's co-chairs and campaigning on her behalf in Iowa.[13][14] Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (left) and Governor Gray Davis (right) with President George W.

Early life

Newsom is a fourth-generation San Franciscan; his paternal great-grandfather emigrated from Ireland in 1865. One of his maternal great-grandfathers, Scotsman Thomas Addis, was a pioneer scientist in the field of nephrology and a professor of medicine at Stanford University. Newsom's parents are retired state appeals court Judge William Newsom and Tessa (Menzies) Newsom, who died in May 2002 after a five-year fight with breast cancer. Newsom's parents broke up when he was two and divorced in 1972, and at age ten Newsom moved with his mother and sister to nearby Marin County.[15][16] Thomas Addis (July 27, 1881 - June 4, 1949) was a physician-scientist who made important advances in the understanding of how blood clots. ...

Newsom later reflected that he did not have an easy childhood.[16] Newsom attended kindergarten and first grade at the French-American bilingual school in San Francisco but transferred because of severe dyslexia that still affects him. The dyslexia made it difficult for Newsom to write, spell, read, and work with numbers.[16] He attended third through fifth grades at Notre Dame de Victoire, where he was placed in remedial reading classes.[15] Newsom graduated from Redwood High School in 1985. He played basketball and baseball in high school.[15] Newsom was an outfielder in baseball. His basketball skills placed Newsom on the cover of the Marin Independent Journal.[15] Newsom's childhood friend Derek Smith recalled Newsom as "one of the hardest working players on the team who became a great player because of his effort, instead of his natural abilities."[15] Newsom's father attended his games with San Francisco politicians that included John Burton and Quentin Kopp. Newsom's father had ties to several other local politicians.[15] Newsom's aunt was married to the brother-in-law of Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.[16] Newsom's father was also a friend of Jerry Brown.[16] This article is about developmental dyslexia. ...

Tessa Newsom worked three jobs to support Gavin and his sister Hilary Newsom Callan. In an interview with The San Francisco Chronicle, Newsom's sister recalled Christmas holidays when their mother told them there wouldn't be any gifts.[15] Despite limited finances, Tessa opened their home to foster children, instilling in Newsom the importance of public service.[15][6] His father's finances were strapped in part because of his father's tendency to give away his earnings.[6] Newsom worked several jobs in high school to help support his family.[7] The San Francisco Chronicle, the self-described Voice of the West, is Northern Californias largest newspaper. ...


Newsom attended Santa Clara University on a partial baseball scholarship and student loans, where he graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts in political science. Newsom was a left-handed pitcher for Santa Clara but he threw his arm out after two years and hasn't thrown a baseball since.[17] He lived in the Alameda apartments which Newsom later compared to living in a hotel. He later reflected on his education fondly, crediting the Socratic approach of Santa Clara that he said has helped him become an independent thinker that questions orthodoxy. Newsom spent a semester studying abroad in Rome.[18] A B.A. issued from the University of Tennessee. ...

Newsom credits Santa Clara University for teaching him how to learn. At the school, he continued to work through his dyslexia which made it difficult for him to read, write, and spell. He credits the disability for having taught him to apply himself with more focus and to develop different skills. Newsom walked at his graduation despite failing a Statistics class two times. After failing in his 3rd attempt during summer school at a community college, the University granted him a waiver for the requirement. Newsom has spoken at a number of top universities but has not been invited to speak at Santa Clara.[18]


Business career

Newsom's first job out of college was selling podiatric orthotics.[15] He later worked for real estate firm Shorenstein & Company, where he worked as an assistant and performed a range of jobs that included cleaning bathrooms and removing asbestos.[15] He earned US$18,000 per year.[16] Newsom also earned a real estate license.[15]


On June 14, 1991, Newsom and his investors created the company PlumpJack Associates L.P. In 1992, the group started the PlumpJack Wine Shop on Fillmore Street in San Francisco with the financial help of his family friend Gordon Getty. PlumpJack was the name of an opera written by Getty. Getty invested in ten of Newsom's eleven businesses.[16] Getty told the San Francisco Chronicle that he treated Newsom like a son and invested in his first business venture because of that relationship. According to Getty, later business investments were because of "the success of the first".[16] At the PlumpJack Cafe, Newsom gave a monthly $50 gift certificate to business ideas that failed because according to Newsom in 1997: "There can be no success without failure."[17] is the 165th day of the year (166th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

One of Newsom's early interactions with government occurred when Newsom resisted the San Francisco Health Department requirement to install a sink at his PlumpJack Wines. The Health Department argued that wine was a food. The department required the store to install a $27,000 sink in the carpeted wine shop on the grounds that the shop needed the sink for a mop. When Newsom was later appointed Supervisor, he told the San Francisco Examiner: "That's the kind of bureaucratic malaise I'm going to be working through."[17] The San Francisco Examiner is a daily newspaper in San Francisco, California, where it has been published continuously since the late 19th Century. ...


The business grew to a multi-million dollar enterprise with over 700 employees.[15] The PlumpJack Cafe Partners L.P. opened the PlumpJack Cafe, also on Fillmore Street, in 1993. Between 1993 and 2000, Newsom and his investors opened several other businesses that included the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn with a PlumpJack Cafe (1994), the Napa Valley winery (1995), the Balboa Cafe Bar and Grill (1995), the PlumpJack Development Fund L.P. (1996), the MatrixFillmore Bar (1998), PlumpJack Wines shop Noe Valley branch (1999), PlumpJackSport retail clothing (2000), and a second Balboa Cafe at Squaw Valley (2000).[16] Newsom's investments included five restaurants and two retail clothing stores.[15] Newsom annual income was greater than $429,000 from 1996 to 2001.[16] In 2002, his business holdings were valued at more than $6.9 million.[15] Napa Valley AVA is an American Viticultural Area located in Napa County, California, USA.

Newsom sold his share of his San Francisco businesses when he became mayor in 2004. Newsom maintained his stakes in the PlumpJack companies outside San Francisco that included the PlumpJack Winery in Napa and the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. He is currently the president in absentia of Airelle Wines Inc., which is connected to the PlumpJack Winery in Napa County. Newsom earned between $141,000 and $251,000 in 2007 from his business interests.[19]


Early political career

Newsom's first political experience when he volunteered for Willie Brown's campaign for mayor in 1995. Newsom hosted a private fundraiser at his PlumpJack Cafe.[16] In 1996, Newsom was appointed by San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to a vacant seat on the Parking and Traffic Commission and was later elected president of the commission. In 1997, Brown appointed him to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors seat vacated by Kevin Shelley. At the time, he became the youngest member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors and also the board's only straight white male.[20][21][22] Newsom was sworn in by his father and pledged to bring his business experience to the Board.[21] Willie Brown called Newsom "part of the future generation of leaders of this great city."[21] Newsom described himself as a "social liberal and a fiscal watchdog."[21][23] Newsom was subsequently reelected to the Board in 1998.

In 1999, San Francisco's voters chose to exchange district-based elections to the Board for the previous at-large system, and Newsom was reelected in 2000 and 2002 to represent District 2, which includes the Pacific Heights, Marina, Cow Hollow, Sea Cliff, and Laurel Heights. He faced no opposition in his 2002 reelection. His district had the highest income level and the highest Republican registration in San Francisco.

As Supervisor, Newsom gained public attention for his role in advocating reform of the city's Municipal Railway (Muni).[25] He was one of two supervisors endorsed by Rescue Muni, a transit riders group, in his 1998 reelection. He sponsored Proposition B to require Muni and other city departments to develop detailed customer service plans.[26][16] The measure passed with 56.6% of the vote.[27] Newsom sponsored a ballot measure from Rescue Muni; a version of the measure was approved by voters in November 1999.[25] The San Francisco Municipal Railway, or Muni as it is commonly known, is the public transit system for the city and county of San Francisco, California. ...

During Newsom's time as Supervisor, he was pro-development and for smart growth along with being "anti-hand out."[28] He supported housing projects through public private partnerships to increase home ownership and affordable housing in San Francisco.[28] Newsom supported HOPE, a failed local ballot measure that would have allowed increased condo-conversion rate if a certain percentage of tenants within a building were buying their units.[28] As a candidate for Mayor, he supported building 10,000 new housing units to create 15,000 new construction jobs.[28] Image File history File links Gavin-newsom. ...

As Supervisor, the centerpiece of Newsom's efforts was a voter initiative called "Care Not Cash (Measure N)," which offered care, supportive housing, drug treatment, and help from behavior health specialists for the homeless instead of direct cash aid from the state's General Assistance program.[28] Many homeless rights advocates protested against Care Not Cash.[29][30] The successfully passed ballot measure raised the political profile of Gavin Newsom and provided the volunteers, donors, and campaign staff to helped make him a leading contender for the Mayorship in 2003.[28][31][32][16] Care Not Cash was a San Francisco ballot measure approved by the voters in November of 2003. ...

Mayoral races

2003

Newsom placed first in the November 4, 2003 general election in a 9-person field. Newsom received 41.9 percent of the vote to Green Matt Gonzalez's 19.6 in the first round of balloting, but he faced a closer race in the December 9th runoff when many of the city's liberal groups coalesced around the campaign of Gonzalez.[31] The race was particularly partisan with attacks against Gonzales for his support of Ralph Nader in the 2000 presidential election and attacks against Newsom for contributing $500 to a Republican slate mailer in 2000 that endorsed issues Newsom supported.[33][34] Democratic leadership felt that they needed to reinforce San Francisco as a Democratic stronghold after losing the 2000 presidential election and the 2003 recall election to Arnold Schwarzenegger.[34] National figures from the Democratic Party, including Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Jesse Jackson, campaigned on Newsom's behalf.[34][35] Five supervisors endorsed Gonzales while Newsom received the endorsement of Willie Brown.[31][32] Newsom's campaign spent over $4 million dollars, outspending Gonzales 10 to 1.[31][34] This article is about the American political party, Green Party. ...

Newsom won the run-off race, capturing 53 percent to Gonzales's 47 percent, and winning by about 11,000 votes.[31] Newsom ran as a business friendly centrist Democrat and a moderate in San Francisco politics; some of his opponents called him conservative.[31][34] Newsom claimed he was a centrist in the Dianne Feinstein mold.[28][36] He ran on the slogan "great cities, great ideas" and presented over 21 policy papers.[32] Newsom pledged to continue working on San Francisco's homelessness issue.[31] Newsom was sworn in as Mayor on January 3, 2004. He called for unity among the cities political factions and promised to address the issues of potholes, public schools, and affordable housing.[37] Newsom said he was "a different kind of leader who "isn't afraid to solve even the toughest problem."[38] Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein (IPA: ) (born June 22, 1933) is the senior U.S. Senator from California, having held office as a senator since 1992. ...


2007

San Francisco's progressive community attempted to find a candidate to run a strong campaign against Newsom. Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi and Chris Daly considered running against Newsom but both declined. Matt Gonzales also decided not to challenge Newsom.[39] When the August 10, 2007 filing deadline passed, the discussion around San Francisco shifted to talk about Newsom's second term. He was challenged in the election by 13 challengers that included George Davis, a nudist activist, and Michael Powers, owner of Power Exchange sex club.[40] Conservative former Supervisor Tony Hall withdrew by early September due to lack of support.[41] The San Francisco Chronicle declared in August 2007 that Newsom faced no "serious threat to his reelection bid." Newsom raised $1.6 million for his reelection campaign by early August.[42] He won reelection on November 6, 2007 with over 72% of the vote.[8] Upon taking office for a second term, Newsom promised to focus on the environment, homelessness, health care, education, housing and rebuilding S.F.

Newsom decided to act on the issue of same sex marriage when he attended the 2004 State of the Union address as a guest of Nancy Pelosi. In the address, President George W. Bush voiced support for a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. In the weeks following the address, Newsom asked his staff to gather background information and to explore how the city could start issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples without alerting the media. Before the first marriage was performed, Newsom's office informed Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, California Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, and national Democrat Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe. Gay Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank told Newsom that it wasn't the right time.[45] The San Francisco 2004 same-sex weddings took place between February 12 and March 11, 2004. ...

On his 36th[7] day in office, Newsom issued a directive to the San Francisco city-county clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, claiming that the California Constitution's equal protection clause gave him authority to do so.[45] Approximately 4,000 same-sex couples were issued licenses in San Francisco from February 12 until March 11, 2004 (when the weddings were halted by the California Supreme Court), bringing international attention to the Mayor and the City. On August 12, 2004, the California Supreme Court voided those licenses, declaring Newsom had overstepped his authority.[46] Following this decision, San Francisco and nearly two dozen gay couples sued the state of California on the issue of same sex marriage. In 2005, Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer agreed with the city, but the decision was overturned by the state appeals court. The case was heard by the California Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of the plaintiffs.[47] Recognized in some regions Foreign marriages recognized Civil unions and registered partnerships Recognized in some regions Unregistered co-habitation Recognition debated Same-sex marriage debated, recognition granted United States (CT, DC, HI, ME, NH, NJ, OR, VT, WA) See also This box:      Same-sex marriage (also referred to as gay...

Many prominent Democrats such as Dianne Feinstein criticized Newsom for issuing the directive for same sex marriage licenses, claiming it had contributed to John Kerry's defeat in the 2004 presidential election.[6][7] Barack Obama declined to have his picture taken with Newsom at a fundraiser in 2004.[48] Obama's deputy campaign director, Steve Hildebrand, denies the story. The 2004 same sex marriages increased Newsom's popularity in San Francisco to the level where he faced no serious opposition to his reelection in 2007.[7][48] John Forbes Kerry (born December 11, 1943) is the junior United States Senator from Massachusetts, in his fourth term of office. ...

Social policy

Implementation of Care Not Cash began on July 1, 2004. As part of his Care Not Cash initiative, 5,000 more homeless people were given permanent shelter in the City. As of October 21, 2007, about 2,000 people have been placed into permanent housing with support.[7] Other programs initiated by Newsom to end chronic homelessness include the San Francisco Homeless Outreach Team (SF HOT), and Project Homeless Connect (PHC). SF HOT functions as a short-term intensive case management team, assisting the most disabled homeless individuals to access health, social and housing services.

Meet Gavin (666 words)
Gavin Newsom is running for Mayor to further enrich his wealthy friends and family by making San Francisco intolerable for the homeless so that they will flee.
Gavin Newsom was launched from the silk-lined womb of Tessa Newsom via a silver umbilical cord on October 10, 1967.
Gavin is married to socialite, ex-lingerie model Kimberly Guilfoyle Newsom, who was given her job as San Francisco Assistant District Attorney as a political favor.
Gavin Newsom's mean streets | Salon News (1301 words)
Newsom's decision to allow 4,000-plus gay couples to marry in February, before he was stopped by the courts, irritated many fellow Democrats, who feared he'd handed a perfect wedge issue to President Bush.
Even Newsom supporters are surprised by the extent to which the man supported by downtown business has put inner-city issues on top of his governing agenda.
It was Newsom's third foray with the Project Connect team, but he's in the city's worst neighborhoods at least weekly now, talking with idle men in the projects, some of them gangbangers, as well as kids.
