Newsom Tracker: Full day despite empty schedule

As The Examiner reported early Friday, a glance at Mayor Gavin Newsom’s schedule can be a false forecast of his day.

The Mayor’s Office released a revised schedule Friday afternoon showing Newsom was out-and-about at various events.

The activity began at 9 this morning when Newsom visited Downtown High School in Potrero to meet with chronically truant students, spokesman Joe Arellano said.

Then later in the afternoon, Newsom attended a swearing-in ceremony for Jeffery Bleich, the new U.S. Ambassador to Australia. San Francisco Giants great Willie Mays also attended.

The mayor was then scheduled to attend the annual building lighting ceremony at the holiday ice rink at the Embarcadero, and then end his day at the launch of Arts in Storefronts in the Mission on lower 24th Street.

We suppose that the busy day gives new credence to the line that never fails to appear at the end of his daily schedule: Mayor’s schedule is subject to change.
