New California Governor’s wife picks different title than “First Lady”

Written by Jazz Shaw

Gavin Newsom has now been sworn in as the next Governor of California, replacing the outgoing Jerry Brown. You can definitely expect an even more drastic swing to the left in the Golden State now that Newsom is in charge and this will apply to matters both great and small.

In the “smaller” category we can include one of the first acts of the state’s new First Lady, Jennifer Siebel Newsom. Oops… I’m breaking the new rules already. Ms. Newsom has announced that she will not accept the title of “First Lady” because it’s offensive to somebody… or something. She will instead ask to be referred to as the First Partner. (LA Times)

The wife of California Governor Gavin Newsom said she will go by the title of “first partner,” nixing the traditional “first lady” title.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom changed her Twitter bio to reflect the new title of “First Partner of California” on Monday, the day of Gavin Newsom’s inauguration in Sacramento.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom also read a poem in English and Spanish at the governor’s inauguration, a move she said reminded Californians of “our common humanity, reminding us that we are all one California family.”
