Mayor resting on the Big Island

Mayor Gavin Newsom is indeed vacationing in Hawaii.

The Examiner on Wednesday called a resort home on the Big Island where the mayor is resting up with family. A woman who answered the phone and identified herself as Judy — Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s mom’s name is Judy — said Gavin was just down the stairs. A second unidentified woman picked up the phone and declined an interview.

The mayor abruptly left The City on Tuesday morning, just days after dropping out of the race for California governor. The departure also left questions about whether the mayor followed proper protocol in designating Supervisor Carmen Chu as acting mayor.

For those who wonder whether the sudden departure on Election Day morning meant he did not vote, mayoral spokesman Nathan Ballard confirmed the mayor did in fact vote via absentee ballot.
