Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will barnstorm three cities tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 30, to hold press events promoting Hillary Clinton’s economic stimulus package. They’re bound for Oakland’s Merritt College in the morning, Sacramento’s Quinn Cottages at midday and Clinton’s East Los Angeles campaign headquarters in the late afternoon, talking on themes including the foreclosure crisis and the needs of working families.
