Gavin Christopher Newsom, 51, was sworn in Monday as the 40th Governor of the State of California.  Many at the celebration heralded this even as the “start of a new era of Progressive activism.”  Governor Newsom won with a vote margin larger than any seen in the Modern Era.

Governor Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and their four children stood by his side as he rested his hand on a bible and took the Oath of Office from California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye.

Governor Newsom’s remarks the first week of taking the reins from Governor Jerry Brown focused on promises to restore California’s “luster,” and to fight the “corruption and incompetence,” of the current President of the United States

We welcome Governor Newsom and look forward to a continued good working relationship.  Please take the time to read his inaugural address as it will help set the blueprint for the next four to eight years of our state.

2016 First Inaugural Address, Governor Gavin Newsom

Congratulations Governor Newsom!
