Progressive Supervisor: I've Been Spammed By Gavin Newsom

Posted By on Fri, Jun 12, 2009 at 8:30 AM

On not one, but two occasions (if not more), Supervisor John Avalos has derisively suggested that Mayor Gavin Newsom resides in a different universe than the rest of us. We're not sure if Pacific Heights qualifies as another universe, but, whatever plane of existence Gavin dwells in, it appears he has ready access to at least two things: L'Oreal Total Control Clean Gel and John Avalos' private e-mail account. 

Avalos told SF Weekly he was surprised to stumble across a "Buck the system with Gavin" e-mail in his personal inbox recently. Apart from the District 11 supe's questions about how, exactly, casting a vote for Newsom qualifies as "bucking the system," Avalos is curious how he found his way onto the Newsom bandwagon's mailing list.

"I certainly didn't ask to get on," he said.

Avalos said he's been "too busy" to go to the trouble of offically unsubscribing from the Newsom list. But that shouldn't be taken as a sign he's a Gavin-backer.

"I hope I'm not being counted on as a supporter," he said. "Because I'm not really there."

Apparently Avalos is registered to vote in a whole different universe.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
