Now that San Francisco Mayor Twitter Master Gavin Newsom is officially running for Governor, he's heading South to Los Angeles and San Diego today for visits to two green companies (it's Earth Day, after all). At noon, he'll be in West LA with Marmol Radziner and Associates, an architecture firm that builds "green" prefab homes. Newsom will tour their design spaces and one of their "cutting edge" homes. Later, he'll be in San Diego touring a a renewable energy's laboratory.

In his video announcement yesterday, Newsom touted his green efforts in San Francisco: "We have the most aggressive local solar incentives in America. The highest recycling rates. The strongest green building standards. And we are putting San Franciscans, who used to be locked out of the old industrial economy, back to work as part of a new green economy."
