Newsom Tracker: Short break from campaigning

The oft-campaigning Mayor Gavin Newsom has some city business to mind to this afternoon.

At 1 p.m., Newsom – who is running a city while running for governor – will help break ground on a new headquarters for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission at 525 Golden Gate Ave., according to the Mayor’s Office.

The mayor then plans to hold a meeting with tech guru Tim O’Reilly, founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media, and city department heads at 4 p.m. to forward The City’s plan to release more government data that can be transformed into software applications residents can use.

Newsom will still manage to fit in a campaign event today. At 5 p.m., the mayor will host another hour-long online town hall meeting. He will chat about his recent call for a constitutional convention.
