Mayor calls out board over ‘ancillary’ issues

Mayor Gavin Newsom has nearly perfected the art of taking cheap shots, especially when they are targeted at city supervisors.

But his latest diatribe is well, a little more convincing. The mayor hammered down on city supervisors for taking on “ancillary” issues instead of real problems over the last six months, such as jobs.

“I’m just concerned that we are getting a little carried away with some of these things and we need to pull back and realize the No. 1 one area of focus right now should be on someone who came from Vietnam who put their life savings on the line whose family is dependent on their small little store surviving in this economy,” Newsom said.
