Newsom Tracker: Vegas and D.C.

Mayor Gavin Newsom has set off on a trip today that will fly him to Las Vegas and Washington D.C., the latter trip to lobby for The City, his spokesman said.

The mayor is scheduled to pitch a speech to labor groups on access to health care in Las Vegas, said Joe Arellano, Newsom’s spokesman.

Then he flies off to Washington D.C. and “has a full day packed” Wednesday, Arellano said.

Newsom will meet with lawmakers on such subjects as Treasure Island, JobsNOW and homelessness, the spokesman said.

“He will be back in the office Thursday morning,” Arellano said.
