Gavin Newsom has championed innovative public programs since first taking office in 1997. As a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, then as mayor of San Francisco and now as Lieutenant Governor of California, Newsom has been a visionary on issues of equality, the environment, homelessness and healthcare. Policies he has initiated and implemented have been duplicated in cities across the nation.

At 34, he was the youngest person elected Mayor of San Francisco in more than a century and was re-elected by more than 73 percent. Thirty-six days into his first term in 2004, he threw himself into one of the most divisive issues in U.S. politics by allowing same-sex couples to marry. During his seven-year tenure as mayor, he led San Francisco to an economic recovery by making the city a center for biotech and clean technology, while attracting and then keeping start-ups.

An early technology adopter who values innovation, Newsom was ranked #1 mayor for his use of social media. He has more than 1 million Twitter followers and in 2010, he announced his run for Lt. Gov. via Twitter.

He is dedicated to shifting the principles of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship to the public sector and recently launched “The Gavin Newsom Show” on Current TV to help shape the conversation. Newsom has graced the cover of The New York Times Magazine and has been featured in Time, the New Yorker, the Economist, GQ, and Wired, among others.
