Lt. Gov. Newsom Sends Letter to Chancellor Block on Japanese Garden Sale
Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom sent a letter to Chancellor Block dated July 3 concerning the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden. Newsom is an ex officio Regent. The letter asks that public access to the Garden be preserved and that UCLA explore alternatives to the planned sale.
As a prior post noted, at their recent meeting, the Regents reviews litigation on this matter. The Newsom letter is dated before the meeting took place although it is possible that some advance material was circulated to Regents.
