Anyone else read the Matier & Ross piece on three apparently ‘rent free’ office spaces provided to Mayor Gavin Newsom’s election campaign? It’s not the potential campaign law violations or political ramblings that really interest us, but rather the thoughts of Newsom’s campaign manager Eric Jaye.

Jaye, according to the article, “didn’t think any of the three offices [in question] had a market value of more than $250 a month.” One of these sizable offices was located at 1309 Fillmore Street – prime Cow Hollow real estate.

We’re not sure if we should be absolutely terrified or simply overjoyed. Either one of Mayor Newsom’s senior staff members is completely out of touch with the basic economics of this city, or we’re about to get ourselves amazing new office space for less than $250 a month…
