October 5 is a politically loaded day

October 5 has become one of those days brimming with loads of political activity.

Supervisor David Campos’s immigration legislation, which is opposed by Mayor Gavin Newsom, is expected to undergo its first hearing before a Board of Supervisors committee on that Monday.

Mayor Gavin Newsom is expected to be in Los Angeles on Oct. 5 campaigning for governor with Democratic power house Bill Clinton offering a ringing endorsement at two campaign events.

And Oct. 5 is also the deadline for Newsom to submit to the Board of Supervisors his plan for addressing the city’s budget shortfall of about $8 million as a result of the impact of the state’s budget cuts.
