    Gavin Newsom Fans Want Bust of His Head at San Francisco City Hall
    Gavin Newsom... in the flesh.

    Fans of Gavin Newsom who want a bust of his head displayed at San Francisco City Hall plan to approach the San Francisco Arts Commission for approval this summer.

    If approved, the likeness of San Francisco's former mayor (and California's current lieutenant governor) would sit in City Hall alongside the busts of past leaders like Harvey Milk, Dianne Feinstein and Willie Brown.

    According to the Chronicle, Newsom has sat with artist Bruce Wolfe twice for a model of his head to be made, but he still isn't quite sure what to say about the potential tribute.

    "I don't want to call it embarrassing, but it's a strange thing," Newsom said. "I'm just awkward about it."
