Gov. Newsom says he skipped climate change summit to spend Halloween with family
Newsom often holds several or more public events a week. His absence and his office’s prolonged silence about what he was doing prompted speculation about his health, mostly from conservative political opponents on social media
Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday said that he skipped a United Nations climate change conference in Scotland to spend more time with his family after his four kids “kind of had an intervention.”
“They couldn’t believe that I was going to miss Halloween,” Newsom said at the 2021 California Economic Summit in Monterey.
Newsom spoke at the conference as part of what his office called a “fireside chat” more than a week after he abruptly canceled the trip to Scotland. His office cited vague “family obligations” at the time.
Newsom opened up about the decision to bail on a marquee opportunity to spotlight his state’s climate policies by saying he’d felt like recently having “been on this damn treadmill” and going “from crisis to crisis.”
After initially explaining why he and his wife should attend, he woke up the next morning with a “knot in my stomach,” Newsom said.
Instead of heading to Europe, Newsom trick-or-treated with his children and attended a competitive soccer tournament in the Sacramento area called Boo Fest.
A representative for Sacramento United, which sponsored the soccer tournament, confirmed to KCRA 3 that Newsom was seen at Boo Fest.
The governor had been out of public sight since receiving a coronavirus vaccine booster shot on Oct. 27.
Newsom often holds several or more public events a week. His absence and his office’s prolonged silence about what he was doing prompted speculation about his health, mostly from conservative political opponents on social media who rallied around the hashtag #wheresgavin.
While he had not held a public event until now, Newsom had tweeted a video for Diwali and shared a Halloween photo with his family on his Instagram page.
“Last week Governor Newsom worked in the Capitol with staff on urgent issues including COVID-19 vaccines for kids, boosters, ports, the forthcoming state budget and California’s continued economic recovery,” spokesperson Daniel Lopez told KCRA 3 in a statement on Monday night. “He will have public events this week related to the economy and vaccines.”
One of those events on Wednesday will be a visit to a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in Los Angeles.
One event Newsom did not talk about on Tuesday was a wedding he attended over the weekend. On Saturday, Newsom was photographed at the San Francisco City Hall wedding for Ivy Love Getty, a model and great-granddaughter of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, Vogue reported. Mayor London Breed was also in attendance and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officiated.
The Getty and Newsom families have long been friends, with Newsom’s father once managing the Getty family trust.
Gordon Getty, the son of J. Paul Getty, helped finance Newsom’s entrance into the wine and hospitality business in the early 1990s. Getty family members have been major donors to Newsom’s campaigns.
On Sunday, first partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom added to the intrigue about his climate change summit cancellation by tweeting then deleting a message for the governor’s apparent critics to “get a life,” according to a cached version of the message available on Google.
“It’s funny how certain folks can’t handle truth,” the message said. “When someone cancels something, maybe they’re just in the office working; maybe in their free time they’re at home with their family, at their kids’ sports matches, or dining out with their wife. Please stop hating and get a life.”
Republicans on Monday sought to turn Newsom’s absence from public events into a political issue.
“A governor’s absence is always a matter of public concern. That’s especially true for a governor claiming sole authority to control people’s lives through a ‘State of Emergency,’” tweeted Republican Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, who ran for governor in September’s failed recall election targeting Newsom. Kiley has repeatedly tried and failed to convince his colleagues in the Democratic-controlled state Legislature to limit Newsom’s emergency powers during the pandemic.
Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez was among Democrats who defended Newsom. She tweeted: “Let’s be honest GavinNewsom is a husband & a father of 4 young children who worked his butt off nearly every day during this pandemic & was rewarded by facing a ridiculous partisan recall election. I don’t care what he’s taking time to do with his family, he deserves time off.”
Democratic state Sen. John Laird said he thinks media attention on Newsom’s absence is “a little overblown” because his administration still has had an active presence at the U.N. conference. Laird spoke to reporters virtually on Monday alongside a handful of other state senators who are in Scotland for the meeting.
“California’s been flying the flag quite admirably and significantly from most parts of the administration that are related to climate,” Laird said.
