According to Getty, later business investments were because of "the success of the first." One of Newsom's early interactions with government occurred when Newsom resisted the San Francisco Health Department requirement to install a sink at his Plump Jack Winery. The department required the store to install a ,000 sink in the carpeted wine shop on the grounds that the shop needed the sink for a mop.
When Newsom was later appointed supervisor, he told the San Francisco Examiner: "That's the kind of bureaucratic malaise I'm going to be working through." The Plump Jack Cafe Partners L. opened the Plump Jack Café, also on Fillmore Street, in 1993.
The successfully passed ballot measure raised the political profile of Gavin Newsom and provided the volunteers, donors, and campaign staff that helped make him a leading contender for the mayorship in 2003.
Newsom placed first in the November 4, 2003, general election in a nine-man field.
In 1997, Brown appointed him to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors seat vacated by Kevin Shelley.
At the time, he became the youngest member of San Francisco's board of supervisors and also, like Shelley before him, the board's only heterosexual Caucasian male.
Newsom attended Redwood High School and graduated from Santa Clara University.
After graduation, he co-founded businesses with family friend Gordon Getty, who was an investor.
Newsom began his political career in 1996 when San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown appointed him to serve on the city's Parking and Traffic Commission and as a member of the Board of Supervisors the following year.
He eventually transferred because of severe dyslexia that still affects him.
His dyslexia has made it difficult for him to write, spell, read and work with numbers.
