Newsom Tracker: 12th day of silence

San Francisco City Hall is closed to the public on Veterans Day, and it seems that will also be the case for Mayor Gavin Newsom.

The mayor has no public events or appearances on today’s schedule.

It has been 12 days now since the mayor has spoken to the press about issues. He last addressed the media in City Hall on Oct. 30 regarding a Bay oil spill that occurred early that morning.

Hours after the press conference, Newsom announced through his campaign manager that he was quitting the 2010 governor’s race. He fled City Hall without addressing the subject publicly, and has seemingly not answered a journalist’s question since.

Maybe he breaks the silent treatment tomorrow? It’s possible.
