Newsom Tracker: Unique in Texas

Mayor Gavin Newsom will spend part of today in Texas under the label of being a unique person who gets to hang out with fellow unique people.

Newsom has been invited to speak this morning at the annual UP Experience conference in Stafford, Tex. (near Houston), where organizers are calling invitees “some of the most unique people on our planet.”

Now you know what the U and P stand for.

“The UP Experience offers the unique voices of 16 passionate presenters, each speaking for 20 quick and powerful minutes on their domain expertise,” organizers said.

Newsom was invited to discuss how local government is leading the world in responding to today’s significant challenges, according to the Mayor’s Office. He is scheduled to speak at 10 a.m. and will also participate in a Q&A session, his office said.

Newsom might be able to use the opportunity to seek some tips for his gubernatorial campaign. Also attending the conference is David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager, organizers said.
