Gavin Newsom: San Francisco's Mayor in Conversation
Gavin Newsom: San Francisco's Mayor in conversation with Commonwealth Club President and CEO Dr. Gloria Duffy
Get up close and personal with San Francisco’s mayor at what may be the most important moment in his political life so far. Newsom became a political celebrity and set the tone for his career when he granted marriage licenses to same-sex couples in 2004. He continued to create a stir with ambitious and sometimes controversial projects to combat homelessness, offer universal health-care coverage and transform the city into a center for clean technology, all before embarking on a brief gubernatorial bid. Now, with San Francisco reeling amidst a budget crisis, the mayor will sit down and talk about the state of the city, his view for California, and perhaps even his next career move.
