When CAAA organized a lunch meeting in Los Angeles for those supporting Gavin Newsom, I was curious and flew down to attend.
Because I live in the Bay Area, I followed Gavin when he was San Francisco's Mayor.
I figured he'd come with an entourage and a stump speech, work in something about injured workers, chat through dessert and dash on to his next campaign appearance.
What happened was nothing I expected.
Gavin Newsom showed up alone and on time, gave no speech and he listened a lot more than he talked. He took notes, asked questions and never looked at his watch. He wanted to know everything a Governor could do - using executive power - to
improve the Workers' Compensation system.
To the CAAA Members who supported Gavin Newsom, congratulations! We might actually have a real winner.
