Newsom travels to Sacramento

Mayor Gavin Newsom is already taking his job as a newly elected state official seriously.

The mayor traveled to Sacramento on Monday to attend the swearing-in of the new Legislature as well as sit in on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s budget hearings where he is expected to announce “ugly cuts.”

Newsom, a San Francisco native, has said that he plans to do most of his work as lieutenant governor from his office in San Francisco, but if need be, he will secure an apartment in Sacramento where he would stay part time.

Tony Winnicker, spokesman for Newsom, said the mayor has not rented an apartment and is still deciding whether it is even necessary.

“I don’t know that he’s concluded he needs one yet,” Winnicker said. “Most of the meetings he attends and boards/commissions he chairs take place outside Sacramento, many even in the Bay Area. As he has stated many times, he will remain a resident of San Francisco.”
