Newsom sewing up loose ends

Mayor Gavin Newsom is back from his weeklong vacation in Hawaii, where he spent the holidays with his family.

What’s he coming back to? Not many public appearances, according to his press office. Newsom has lined up staff meetings through the week, presumably to tackle some of the few issues he has to deal with before he departs his post in January. At the top of his list: The City's budget.
