Newsom Tracker: Tree-lighting, then Bangalore

While a bevy of San Franciscans are shopping or resting from turkey hangovers, Mayor Gavin Newsom was set to spend Friday preparing for a trip to Bangalore, India, the Mayor’s Office said.

The mayor is also scheduled to make an appearance at the Macy’s 20th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in Union Square at 5:45 p.m.

On Saturday, Newsom will jet off to Bangalore for some relationship-building sessions as part of the San Francisco-Bangalore Sister City Initiative, a partnership established last year, the Mayor’s Office said.

The sister relationship encourages officials and business leaders with the two cities to exchange ideas, court investments, boost tourism and chat about best practices. Both cities are leaders in biotechnology, medical technology, and digital technology and are major cultural, business and education centers, the Mayor’s Office said.

The mayor is schedule to return to The City on Wednesday, the Mayor’s Office said.
