NYT Columnist Maureen Dowd interviewed our handsome Mayor the other day and penned an entire column on his once promising political career and future prospects. He may have charmed her a bit:
Gavin Newsom still looks glossy, like someone who’d play J.F.K. in a Lifetime original movie.
But the 42-year-old mayor of San Francisco sees his once glowing political future in less glamorous terms.
“I mean, oh, God,” he said, sipping green tea in his elegant office. “In a couple of years, you’ll see me as the clerk of a wine store.”
It’s easy to picture the lithe and charming Newsom — with the well-cut suits, the electric Tesla, the beautiful blonde wife and baby — advising a Pacific Heights couple on a cabernet with aromas of eucalyptus and mint…
So what do you think? Is this the end of Mayor Newsom’s political career? Will we see him on future episodes of TRAUMA alongside his lovely wife?
What the eff? Supervisor Chris Daly promised to drop the F bomb in every Board of Supervisors meeting this year.
Our dashing mayor has just launched a new website to showcase groups and folks using city data to create apps that we can all use.
Today, I’m pleased to announce the launch of the DataSF App Showcase (www.datasf.org/showcase). The site will celebrate the innovators and innovations from a more collaborative and open government. On the site the public can browse examples of new ways in which Bay Area constituents are using City data to improve San Francisco.
Examples include San Francisco Crimespotting, EcoFinder, and Routesy. We love this idea and hope to see more apps soon!
So as you probably know, our charming mayor is running for Governor of California. He’s been having quite a difficult time so far though, since many of his advisors and supporters jumped ship early on. No matter, he’s now secured the endorsement and fundraising support of former President Bill Clinton. And the internets are ablaze with speculations on why and how he secured that endorsement. Check out the comments section of this SF Gate article.
