God save us from Jerry and Gavin ...where are real leaders instead of a recycled 72 year old lib and/or the role model for the "new" left?
Ask yourself-- are SF/Oak streets cleaner,safer? Are the public schools in either city better now than 8 years ago? Do the cities have a balanced budget or even a smaller deficit than 5 years ago? Are entitlement programs more eficently run now verses a mere 5 years ago? Do you trust Gavin with your wife? Will either stand up or better yet did either stand up to public employee unions?
Not a single "yes" is there--so why vote for either of these people and expect them to improve things at the state level when they could not make a positive objectively measured differnce at a major city level?

I agree with Bob123. Here comes more entitlement programs if Jerry and Gavin win. Gavin is only running to set himself up to run for governor in the future. Ask Oakland P.D officers what they think of Jerry Brown. God help us all if they win!!!

Was born in S.F. during the '60s. This use to be a beautiful state long ago. Boy did it go downhill, so fast. Not only in local government it's mess, no real quality people to run the state, it's also in the major gov./scene as well. The division gets deeper.

I had a neutral opinion on Gavin Newsom (don't like him, don't hate him either), until he had sex with his campaign manager's wife. That's despicable. Affairs are one thing and they happen, but to do it with someone that close to you is truly awful.
