Gavin’s latest Jerry critique: lacks ‘vision for greatness’

Friday, February 3, 2012

imageFrom the governor-in-waiting department: Gavin Newsom is sniping at Jerry Brown again, telling KQED Forum host Michael Krasny Wednesday that the governor is “not necessarily the most collaborative chief executive” and that he lacks a “vision for greatness.” Hmm, wonder who he thinks might have it? Here’s the lieutenant governor audio. And here’s an excerpt from Capitol Alert’s take on the episode:

As he has before, Newsom said he was disappointed by proposed cuts to early education and welfare programs. But he also suggested that he could do better, and that he had an answer for the administration when asked what budget measures he might come up with instead.

"You give me your finance team, give me the controller, and give me your department heads, and give me 48 hours," Newsom said, "and I'll come up with them."

Brown spokesman Gil Duran declined to comment, except to say, "We stay busy over here in the governor's office."
