Newsom wants to be politician, not celeb

Mayor Gavin Newsom looked well-rested Tuesday after returning last weekend from a weeklong Christmas vacation with family in Hawaii.

But we’ll never know whether he spent time at luaus, beaches or on hiking trails, because our celebrity mayor reiterated that he’s done with chatting about his personal life with the media.

Newsom said one of his goals for the New Year is to “focus on policy and outcome, not process and personality.”

“That’s my New Year’s wish, is that The City can move away from the politics of personality and process,” Newsom said.

All he would say to questions about his Hawaii trip is that he spent long-overdue time with his family, and that he’s rested.

TMZ would be disappointed.
