Gavin Newsom sees your "immature" comment and raises, Board of Supervisors! Now the mayor's announced that his first non-Question Time "community panel" will be in Jake McGoldrick's District 1 on Saturday Jan. 13, at 10 a.m. at the Richmond Recreation Center, 251 18th Ave. Save the date! (oh, don't worry about writing it down -- .)
The problem is, though, Newsom didn't bother to check with Supervisor McGoldrick first to see if that date was good for him before going out and announcing it as a done deal. McGoldrick is pissed, saying "[Newsom]'s taken it down to the level of a circus. And now he starts looking like one of the clowns." When McGoldrick was asked if he was planning on attending, he said, "I don't jump into circus routines." (The idea of McGoldrick dressed up like a bear in a tutu dancing on its hind legs has now popped unbidden into our mind.)
After the jump -- even the Examiner's unhappy with this move, Gavin!
