Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom to speak at SLO Chamber of Commerce lunch in February

The San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce has confirmed Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom will be the featured speaker at the chamber's next Legislative Council Lunch.

The chamber made the announcement Tuesday night on its Facebook page.

The luncheon is set for Feb. 24 at noon. The event will be open to the public.

Courtney Kienow, the director of governmental affairs for the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce, said the full details of the event are still being worked out with the lieutenant governor’s office.

“We just received confirmation from the lieutenant governor’s office yesterday,” Kienow said. “We are highly anticipating him coming to San Luis Obispo and having the opportunity for people from this community to be able to hear from him is very exciting.”

The chamber hosts a series of legislative lunches each year where they discuss various issues that affect local businesses.
