A whole lot of swearing goin’ on…

So Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been sworn in for a second term, but other state constitutional officers have yet to take their oaths. Here’s the when and where for them:

  • Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi: 2 p.m. Sunday in the State Capitol’s Senate Chamber in Sacramento. The oath will be administered by California Chief Justice Ronald George; a reception line will follow in the Capitol Rotunda.
  • Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner: 11 a.m. Monday at the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. The oath will be administered by former state Senator and current San Mateo County Superior Court Judge Quentin Kopp. Former state Senator Jim Brulte and former Congressman Tom Campbell will also take part, as will former San Jose Mayor Tom McEnery and Santa Clara University President the Rev. Paul Locatelli; a post-inaugural lunch will feature comedian Kevin Pollak, a Bay Area native and veteran movie actor.
  • Treasurer Bill Lockyer: 11 a.m. Monday at the Jesse Unruh State Office Building near the State Capitol in Sacramento. Keynoting will be futurist and business strategist Peter Schwartz.
  • Secretary of State Debra Bowen: 2 p.m. Monday in the Secretary of State’s auditorium in Sacramento. This one will be Webcast live at http://www.sos.ca.gov/.
  • Attorney General Jerry Brown: 3:30 p.m. Monday at San Francisco City Hall. The oath will be administered by his niece, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Kelly. Brown watched his father, Edmund “Pat” Brown, sworn in at the same place 63 years ago as San Francisco’s District Attorney.
  • Controller John Chiang: 5:30 p.m. Monday at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento.
  • Josh Richman
