Gavin Newsom is sworn in as California’s 49th Lieutenant Governor
After delaying his swearing in ceremony by one week, Gavin Newsom was sworn in as California’s 49th lieutenant governor on Monday.
Mr. Newsom was sworn in by his father, former judge William Newsom. The elder Newsom also swore in his son as the Mayor of San Francisco in 2003.
In his remarks on Monday, Lt. Governor Newsom said, “Hopefully I can encourage everyone around here to take some risks … We’ve got to bring that entrepreneurial spirit back into Sacramento and not be afraid of tomorrow’s headlines.”
