LOS ANGELES — Gov. Gavin Newsom and wife Jennifer Siebel Newsom plan to move their family back to Marin County, a spokeswoman said Monday.

Both Newsom and the first partner grew up in Marin County, an enclave just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, and it's where they were raising their four children prior to his becoming governor in 2018. They plan to enroll the children in Marin County schools in the fall.

"To ensure continuity in their children's education, the family will split their time between Sacramento and Marin heading into the coming academic year," spokeswoman Izzy Gardon said, confirming news first reported by Politico, which added that the children would stay with extended family.

Shortly after the two-term governor was first elected, the couple sold their Marin County home and purchased a six-bedroom, 12,000-square-foot house for $3.7-million in the Fair Oaks community, 15 miles from the state Capitol in Sacramento.


Newsom, whose current term ends in January 2027, is the third governor in a row to live in multiple locations while serving.

In his first public appearance as governor-elect in 2010, Jerry Brown made a point of telling reporters he was keeping his house in Oakland as his permanent address. Five years later, Brown moved into the newly renovated governor's mansion, after living in a downtown Sacramento loft.

Arnold Schwarzenegger liked spending his nights at his Brentwood mansion so much that he famously commuted three hours between L.A. and Sacramento by private jet.
