Gavin and I after the Town Hall Meeting
First blog in a while! I’ve been busy with moving and remodeling and all kinds of other fun stuff.
So last night San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom was at
For those who read my blog and don’t know who Gavin is, he is the Mayor of San Fran and is running for California Governor in 2010. His big issue last year was making sure Prop 8 (or as I like to call it “Prob 8”) failed. You may remember him in the right winged commercial ads urging people to vote YES on Prop 8. They showed a video clip of him saying, “Whether you like it or not”, in regards to gay marriage.
There is something about a man who is willing to stand up for the gay community and have the courage to say, “This is wrong.” Unfortunately, Prop 8 was passed. But this man won’t stop there. He is going to go all the way to the Capital to make sure
Gavin’s platform is sterling. Gay marriage rights,
The other idea I thought was awesome was the Arts Education Program. I remember Art Ed in school, once a month someone would come to our class for about a week or so and teach us about a famous artist. After we learned about the artist our assignment was to create a piece of art in the style of that artist. Not only was it education and mind expanding, it was a lot of fun and kept our attention. But that program no longer exists in some places. I’m pretty damn sure
I actually got to meet the man and shake his hand. I also got a picture with him. He is one hell of a guy and I support his run for Governor.
