Police union shows Newsom the money

It appears as though Mayor Gavin Newsom’s attention to public safety has paid off.

The San Francisco Police Officer’s Association dropped a $6,500 contribution into Newsom’s lieutenant governor campaign this week, and the firefighters union chipped in to Newsom’s campaign with a little less, $2,000.

San Francisco firefighters already contributed $10,000 to Newsom’s campaign in April while the contribution from the POA appears to be the first.

The only other contribution from a city police officer appears to come from Assistant Chief Tom Shawyer. Shawyer contributed $1,000 way back in May when he was but a lieutenant. He has since been promoted.
