Gavin Christopher Newsom is an American politician who is the 49th
and current Lieutenant Governor of California. Previously, he was
the Mayor of San Francisco, and was elected in 2003 to succeed
Willie Brown, becoming San Francisco's youngest mayor in 100 years.
Newsom was re-elected in 2007 with 72 percent of the vote. Newsom
graduated from Redwood High School in Larkspur, California, in
1985, and in 1989 from Santa Clara University with a Bachelor of
Arts degree in political science. His PlumpJack Wine Shop, founded
in 1992, grew into a multimillion-dollar enterprise, and now
includes bars, restaurants, and a Lake Tahoe hotel called Squaw
Valley Inn. He was first appointed by Willie Brown to serve on San
Francisco's Parking and Traffic Commission in 1996, and was
appointed the following year as Supervisor. Newsom drew voter
attention with his Care Not Cash program, designed to move homeless
people into city assisted care
