Edmund Gerald "Jerry” Brown Jr. (born April 7, 1938) is an American politician, author and lawyer serving as the 39th and current Governor of California
California
since 2011, previously holding the position from 1975 to 1983, making him the state's longest-serving Governor. As a consequence of the 28-year gap between his second and third terms, Brown is both the oldest and sixth-youngest California
California
Governor. His father, Edmund "Pat" Brown, served as the 32nd Governor of California
California
from 1959 to 1967. Jerry Brown, after graduating from the University of California, Berkeley
University of California, Berkeley
and Yale University, began his political career as a member of the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Community College District Board of Trustees (1969–1971). He was elected to serve as the 23rd Secretary of State of California
Secretary of State of California
in 1971 and served until 1975. At 36, Brown was elected to his first two terms as Governor in 1974 and 1978 as the youngest California
California
Governor in 111 years. During and following his first governorship, Brown thrice ran as a candidate for the Democratic nomination in the 1976, 1980, and 1992 U.S. presidential elections. He declined to pursue a third term in 1982, instead choosing to unsuccessfully run for the United States Senate during the same year. After traveling abroad, he returned to California
California
and served as Chairman
Chairman
of the California
California
Democratic Party (1989–1991), attempting to run for the Senate once more in 1992. After six years out of politics, Brown returned to public life, serving as Mayor of Oakland from 1999 to 2007, and then Attorney General of California
California
from 2007 to 2011. He ran for his third and fourth term as Governor in 2010 and 2014, respectively. His eligibility to do so stemmed from California's constitutional grandfather clause. On October 7, 2013, he became the longest-serving Governor in California

and later Governor of California, Edmund Gerald "Pat" Brown Sr., and his wife, Bernice Layne.[1] Brown's father was of half Irish and half German descent.[2] His great-grandfather August Schuckman, a German immigrant, settled in California

in 1852 during the California

Gold Rush.[3] Brown was a member of the California
California
Cadet Corps at St. Ignatius High School, where he graduated in 1955.[4][5] In 1955, Brown entered Santa Clara University for a year and left to attend Sacred Heart Novitiate, a Jesuit novice house in Los Gatos, intent on becoming a Catholic priest.[6][7] Brown resided at the novitiate from August 1956 to January 1960 before enrolling at the University of California, Berkeley, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Classics in 1961.[6][8] With his tuition paid for by the Louis Lurie Foundation,[9] including a $675 scholarship in 1963,[10] Brown went on to Yale Law School

After taking office, Brown gained a reputation as a fiscal conservative.[14] The American Conservative
The American Conservative
later noted he was "much more of a fiscal conservative than Governor Reagan".[15] His fiscal restraint resulted in one of the biggest budget surpluses in state history, roughly $5 billion.[16][17] For his personal life, Brown refused many of the privileges and perks of the office, forgoing the newly constructed 20,000-square-foot governor's residence in the suburb of Carmichael and instead renting a $250-per-month apartment at the corner of 14th and N Streets, adjacent to Capitol Park in downtown Sacramento.[18][19] Rather than riding as a passenger in a chauffeured limousine as previous governors had done, Brown walked to work and drove in a Plymouth Satellite
Plymouth Satellite
sedan.[20][21][22] As governor, Brown held a strong interest in environmental issues. He appointed J. Baldwin to work in the newly created California
California
Office of Appropriate Technology, Sim Van der Ryn as State Architect, Stewart Brand as Special
Special
Advisor, John Bryson
John Bryson
as chairman of the California State Water Board. Brown also reorganized the California
California
Arts Council, boosting its funding by 1300 percent and appointing artists to the council[12] and appointed more women and minorities to office than any other previous California
California
governor.[12] In 1977, he sponsored the "first-ever tax incentive for rooftop solar", among many environmental initiatives.[23] In 1975, Brown obtained the repeal of the "depletion allowance", a tax break for the state's oil industry, despite the efforts of lobbyist Joe Shell, a former intraparty rival to Richard M. Nixon.[24] Like his father, Brown strongly opposed the death penalty and vetoed it as governor, which the legislature overrode in 1977.[25] He also appointed judges who opposed capital punishment. One of these appointments, Rose Bird as the Chief Justice of the California
California
Supreme Court, was later recalled by voters in 1987 after a strong campaign financed by business interests upset by her "pro-labor" and "pro-free speech" rulings. The death penalty was only "a trumped-up excuse"[26] to use against her, even though the Bird Court consistently upheld the constitutionality of the death penalty.[27] In 1960, he lobbied his father, then governor, to spare the life of Caryl Chessman and reportedly won a 60-day stay for him.[28][29] Brown was both in favor of a Balanced Budget Amendment and opposed to Proposition 13, the latter of which would decrease property taxes and greatly reduce revenue to cities and counties.[30] When Proposition 13 passed in June 1978, he heavily cut state spending, and along with the Legislature, spent much of the $5 billion surplus to meet the proposition's requirements and help offset the revenue losses which made cities, counties, and schools more dependent on the state.[16][30] His actions in response to the proposition earned him praise from Proposition 13 author Howard Jarvis who went as far as to make a television commercial for Brown just before his successful re-election bid in 1978.[30] The controversial proposition immediately cut tax revenues and required a two-thirds supermajority to raise taxes.[31] Proposition 13 "effectively destroyed the funding base of local governments and school districts, which thereafter depended largely on Sacramento
Sacramento
for their revenue".[32] Max Neiman, a professor at the Institute of Governmental Studies at University of California, Berkeley, credited Brown for "bailing out local government and school districts", but felt it was harmful "because it made it easier for people to believe that Proposition 13 wasn't harmful".[23] In an interview in 2014, Brown indicated that a "war chest" would have helped his campaign for an alternative to Proposition 13.[33] 1976 presidential election[edit] Main article: Democratic Party presidential primaries, 1976

Brown began his first campaign for the Democratic nomination for president on March 16, 1976,[34] late in the primary season and over a year after some candidates had started campaigning. Brown declared: "The country is rich, but not so rich as we have been led to believe. The choice to do one thing may preclude another. In short, we are entering an era of limits."[35][36] Brown's name began appearing on primary ballots in May and he won in Maryland, Nevada, and his home state of California.[37] He missed the deadline in Oregon, but he ran as a write-in candidate and finished in third behind Jimmy Carter

primaries, but in reality, uncommitted slates of delegates that Brown advocated in those states finished first. With support from Louisiana
Louisiana
Governor Edwin Edwards, Brown won a majority of delegates at the Louisiana delegate selection convention; thus Louisiana

was the only southern state to not support Southerners Carter or Alabama Governor George Wallace. Despite this success, he was unable to stall Carter's momentum, and his rival was nominated on the first ballot at the 1976 Democratic National Convention. Brown finished third with roughly 300 delegate votes, narrowly behind Congressman Morris Udall
Morris Udall
and Carter. Second term[edit] Brown won re-election in 1978 against Republican state Attorney General Evelle J. Younger. Brown appointed the first openly gay judge in the United States when he named Stephen Lachs to serve on the Los Angeles County Superior Court in 1979.[38] In 1981, he also appointed the first openly lesbian judge in the United States, Mary C. Morgan to the San Francisco
San Francisco
Municipal Court.[39] Brown completed his second term having appointed a total of five gay judges, including Rand Schrader and Jerold Krieger.[40][41] Through his first term as governor, Brown had not appointed any openly gay people to any position, but he cited the failed 1978 Briggs Initiative, which sought to ban homosexuals from working in California's public schools, for his increased support of gay rights.[38] The Governor also signed AB 489, The Consenting Adult Sex Act, which decriminalized homosexual behavior between adults, adding to this reputation. He also signed AB 607, which banned homosexuals from receiving civil marriage licenses, in 1977. Brown championed the Peripheral Canal project to transport water from near Sacramento
Sacramento
around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
into the Central Valley Project, and export it to southern California. It was submitted to the voters for approval as a ballot proposition in 1982, but was turned down.[42] In 1981, Brown, who had established a reputation as a strong environmentalist, was confronted with a serious medfly infestation in the San Francisco
San Francisco
Bay Area. He was advised by the state's agricultural industry, and the US Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection service (APHIS), to authorize airborne spraying of the region. Initially, in accordance with his environmental protection stance, he chose to authorize ground-level spraying only. Unfortunately, the infestation spread as the medfly reproductive cycle out-paced the spraying. After more than a month, millions of dollars of crops had been destroyed and billions of dollars more were threatened. Governor Brown then authorized a massive response to the infestation. Fleets of helicopters sprayed malathion at night, and the California
California
National Guard set up highway checkpoints and collected many tons of local fruit; in the final stage of the campaign, entomologists released millions of sterile male medflies in an attempt to disrupt the insects' reproductive cycle. Ultimately, the infestation was eradicated, but both the Governor's delay and the scale of the action has remained controversial ever since. Some people claimed that malathion was toxic to humans, as well as insects. In response to such concerns, Brown's chief of staff, B. T. Collins, staged a news conference during which he publicly drank a glass of malathion. Many people complained that, while the malathion may not have been very toxic to humans, the aerosol spray containing it was corrosive to car paint.[43][44] Brown proposed the establishment of a state space academy and the purchasing of a satellite that would be launched into orbit to provide emergency communications for the state—a proposal similar to one that was indeed eventually adopted. In 1979, an out-of-state columnist, Mike Royko, at the Chicago Sun-Times, picked up on the nickname from Brown's girlfriend at the time, Linda Ronstadt, who was quoted in a 1978 Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
magazine interview humorously calling him "Moonbeam".[45][46] A year later Royko expressed his regret for publicizing the nickname,[47] and in 1991 Royko disavowed it entirely, proclaiming Brown to be just as serious as any other politician.[48][49] Some notable figures were given priority, correspondence access to him in either advisory or personal roles. These included United Farm Workers of America

Über Alles", was released; it was performed from the perspective of then-governor Brown painting a picture of a hippie-fascist state, satirizing what they considered his mandating of liberal ideas in a fascist manner, commenting on what lyricist Jello Biafra saw as the corrosive nature of power. The imaginary Brown had become President Brown presiding over secret police and gas chambers. Biafra later said in an interview with Nardwuar
Nardwuar
that he now feels differently about Brown; as it turned out Brown was not as bad as Biafra thought he would be, and subsequent songs have been written about other politicians deemed worse.[51] Brown chose not to run for a third term in 1982, and instead ran for the United States Senate, but lost to San Diego Mayor Pete Wilson. He was succeeded as governor by George Deukmejian, then state attorney general, on January 3, 1983. 1980 presidential election[edit] Main article: Democratic Party presidential primaries, 1980

Brown in 1978

In 1980, Brown challenged Carter for renomination. His candidacy had been anticipated by the press ever since he won re-election as governor in 1978 over the Republican Evelle Younger by 1.3 million votes, the largest margin in California
California
history. But Brown had trouble gaining traction in both fundraising and polling for the presidential nomination. This was widely believed to be the result of the more prominent candidate Senator Ted Kennedy
Ted Kennedy
of Massachusetts. Brown's 1980 platform, which he declared to be the natural result of combining Buckminster Fuller's visions of the future and E. F. Schumacher's theory of "Buddhist economics", was much expanded from 1976. His "era of limits" slogan was replaced by a promise to, in his words, "Protect the Earth, serve the people, and explore the universe". Three main planks of his platform were a call for a constitutional convention to ratify the Balanced Budget Amendment; a promise to increase funds for the space program as a "first step in bringing us toward a solar-powered space satellite to provide solar energy for this planet";[52] and, in the wake of the 1979 Three Mile Island accident, opposition to nuclear power. On the subject of the 1979 energy crisis, Brown decried the "Faustian bargain" that he claimed Carter had entered into with the oil industry, and declared that he would greatly increase federal funding of research into solar power. He endorsed the idea of mandatory non-military national service for the nation's youth and suggested that the Defense Department cut back on support troops while beefing up the number of combat troops. Brown opposed Kennedy's call for universal national health insurance and opposed Carter's call for an employer mandate to provide catastrophic private health insurance.[53] As an alternative, he suggested a program of tax credits for those who do not smoke or otherwise damage their health, saying: "Those who abuse their bodies should not abuse the rest of us by taking our tax dollars."[53] Brown also called for expanding the use of acupuncture and midwifery.[53] As Brown's campaign began to attract more members of what some more conservative commentators described as "the fringe", including activists like Jane Fonda, Tom Hayden, and Jesse Jackson, his polling numbers began to suffer. Brown received only 10 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary, and he was soon forced to announce that his decision to remain in the race would depend on a good showing in the Wisconsin
Wisconsin
primary. Although he had polled well there throughout the primary season, an attempt to film a live speech in Madison, the state's capital, into a special effects-filled, 30-minute commercial (produced and directed by Francis Ford Coppola) was disastrous.[54] Senate defeat and public life[edit] In 1982, Brown chose not to seek a third term as governor; instead, he ran for the United States Senate
United States Senate
for the seat being vacated by Republican S.I. Hayakawa. He was defeated by Republican San Diego Mayor Pete Wilson
Pete Wilson
by a margin of 52% to 45%. After his Senate defeat, Brown was left with few political options.[55] Republican George Deukmejian, a Brown critic, narrowly won the governorship in 1982, succeeding Brown, and was re-elected overwhelmingly in 1986. After his Senate defeat in 1982, many considered Brown's political career to be over.[55] Brown traveled to Japan to study Buddhism, studying with Christian/Zen practitioner Hugo Enomiya-Lassalle
Hugo Enomiya-Lassalle
under Yamada Koun-roshi. In an interview, he explained, "Since politics is based on illusions, zazen definitely provides new insights for a politician. I then come back into the world of California
California
and politics, with critical distance from some of my more comfortable assumptions."[56] He also visited Mother Teresa in Calcutta, India, where he ministered to the sick in one of her hospices.[57] He explained, "Politics is a power struggle to get to the top of the heap. Calcutta and Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa
are about working with those who are at the bottom of the heap. And to see them as no different than yourself, and their needs as important as your needs. And you're there to serve them, and doing that you are attaining as great a state of being as you can."[56] Upon his return from abroad in 1988, Brown announced that he would stand as a candidate to become chairman of the California
California
Democratic Party, and won against investment banker Steve Westly.[58] Although Brown greatly expanded the party's donor base and enlarged its coffers, with a focus on grassroots organizing and get out the vote drives, he was criticized for not spending enough money on TV ads, which was felt to have contributed to Democratic losses in several close races in 1990. In early 1991, Brown abruptly resigned his post and announced that he would run for the Senate seat held by the retiring Alan Cranston. Although Brown consistently led in the polls for both the nomination and the general election, he abandoned the campaign, deciding instead to run for the presidency for the third time. 1992 presidential election[edit] Main article: Democratic Party presidential primaries, 1992 When Brown announced his intention to run for president against President George H. W. Bush, many in the media and his own party dismissed his campaign as having little chance of gaining significant support. Ignoring them, Brown embarked on a grassroots campaign to, in his own words, "take back America from the confederacy of corruption, careerism, and campaign consulting in Washington".[59] In his stump speech, first used while officially announcing his candidacy on the steps of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Brown told listeners that he would be accepting campaign contributions from individuals only and that he would not accept over $100.[50] Continuing with his populist reform theme, he assailed what he dubbed "the bipartisan Incumbent Party in Washington" and called for term limits for members of Congress. Citing various recent scandals on Capitol Hill, particularly the recent House banking scandal and the large congressional pay-raises from 1990, he promised to put an end to Congress being a "Stop-and-Shop for the moneyed special interests". As Brown campaigned in various primary states, he would eventually expand his platform beyond a policy of strict campaign finance reform. Although he focused on a variety of issues throughout the campaign, he highlighted his endorsement of living wage laws and opposition to free trade agreements such as NAFTA; he mostly concentrated on his tax policy, which had been created specifically for him by Arthur Laffer, the famous supporter of supply-side economics who created the Laffer curve. This plan, which called for the replacement of the progressive income tax with a flat tax and a value added tax, both at a fixed 13-percent rate, was decried by his opponents as regressive. Nevertheless, it was endorsed by The New York Times, The New Republic, and Forbes, and its raising of taxes on corporations and elimination of various loopholes which tended to favor the very wealthy, proved to be popular with voters. This was, perhaps, not surprising, as various opinion polls taken at the time found that as many as three-quarters of all Americans believed the current tax code to be unfairly biased toward the wealthy. He "seemed to be the most left-wing and right-wing man in the field ... [calling] for term limits, a flat tax, and the abolition of the Department of Education".[60] Brown scored surprising wins in Connecticut

and Colorado

and seemed poised to overtake Clinton. Due to his limited budget, Brown began to use a mixture of alternative media and unusual fundraising techniques. Unable to pay for actual commercials, he frequently used cable television and talk radio interviews as a form of free media to get his message to voters. In order to raise funds, he purchased a toll-free telephone number, which adorned all of his campaign stances.[61] During the campaign, Brown's repetition of this number combined with the moralistic language used, led some to describe him as a "political televangelist" with an "anti-politics gospel".[62] Despite poor showings in the Iowa caucus
Iowa caucus
(1.6%) and the New Hampshire primary (8%), Brown soon managed to win narrow victories in Maine, Colorado, Nevada, and Vermont, but he continued to be considered a small threat for much of the campaign. It was not until shortly after Super Tuesday, when the field had been narrowed to Brown, former Senator Paul Tsongas
Paul Tsongas
of Massachusetts, and front-runner then-Governor Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
of Arkansas, that Brown began to emerge as a major contender in the eyes of the press. On March 17, Brown forced Tsongas from the race when he received a strong third-place showing in the Illinois
Illinois
primary and then defeated the senator for second place in the Michigan
Michigan
primary by a wide margin. Exactly one week later, he cemented his position as a major threat to Clinton when he eked out a narrow win in the bitterly fought Connecticut
Connecticut
primary. As the press focused on the primaries in New York and Wisconsin, which were both to be held on the same day, Brown, who had taken the lead in polls in both states, made a gaffe: He announced to an audience of various leaders of New York City's Jewish community that, if nominated, he would consider the Reverend Jesse Jackson
Jesse Jackson
as a vice-presidential candidate.[63] Jackson, who had made a pair of anti-semitic comments about Jews in general, and New York City's Jews in particular, while running for president in 1984, was still mistrusted within the Jewish community. Jackson also had ties to Louis Farrakhan, infamous for his own anti-semitic statements, and with Yasir Arafat, the chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization.[63] Brown's polling numbers suffered. On April 7, he lost narrowly to Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
in Wisconsin (37%–34%), and dramatically in New York (41%–26%). Although Brown continued to campaign in a number of states, he won no further primaries. Despite being overwhelmingly outspent, Brown won upset victories in seven states and his "votes won to the money raised ratio" was by far the best of any candidate in the race.[64] He still had a sizable number of delegates, and a big win in his home state of California
California
would deprive Clinton of sufficient support to win the Democratic nomination, possibly bringing about a brokered convention. After nearly a month of intense campaigning and multiple debates between the two candidates, Clinton managed to defeat Brown in this final primary by a margin of 48% to 41%. Although Brown did not win the nomination, he was able to boast of one accomplishment: at the following month's Democratic National Convention, he received the votes of 596 delegates on the first ballot, more than any other candidate but Clinton. He spoke at the convention, and to the national viewing audience, yet without endorsing Clinton, through the device of seconding his own nomination. There was animosity between the Brown and Clinton campaigns, and Brown was the first political figure to criticize Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
over what became known as the Whitewater controversy.[61] Mayor of Oakland (1999–2007)[edit]

tells an assistant district attorney to drop a case, "unless you want as much of a future in this state as Jerry Brown". The assistant DA responds, "Who's Jerry Brown?"[65] What would become Brown's re-emergence into politics after six years was in Oakland, California, an "overwhelmingly minority city of 400,000".[66] Brown ran as an independent "having left the Democratic Party, blasting what he called the 'deeply corrupted' two-party system".[66] Prior to taking office, Brown campaigned to get the approval of the electorate to convert Oakland's "weak mayor" political structure, which structured the mayor as chairman of the city council and official greeter, to a "strong mayor" structure, where the mayor would act as chief executive over the nonpolitical city manager and thus the various city departments, and break tie votes on the Oakland City Council.[66] He won with 59% of the vote in a field of ten candidates.[66] The political left had hoped for some of the more progressive politics from Brown's earlier governorship, but found Brown "more pragmatic than progressive, more interested in downtown redevelopment and economic growth than political ideology".[67] As mayor, he invited the U.S. Marine Corps
U.S. Marine Corps
to use Oakland harbor lands for mock military exercises as part of Operation Urban Warrior.[68] The city was rapidly losing residents and businesses, and Brown is credited with starting the revitalization of the city using his connections and experience to lessen the economic downturn, while attracting $1 billion of investments, including refurbishing the Fox Theatre, the Port of Oakland, and Jack London Square.[66] The downtown district was losing retailers, restaurateurs and residential developers, and Brown sought to attract thousands of new residents with disposable income to revitalize the area.[69] Brown continued his predecessor Elihu Harris's public policy of supporting downtown housing development in the area defined as the Central Business District in Oakland's 1998 General Plan.[70] Since Brown worked toward the stated goal of bringing an additional 10,000 residents to Downtown Oakland, his plan was known as "10K". It has resulted in redevelopment projects in the Jack London District, where Brown purchased and later sold an industrial warehouse which he used as a personal residence,[66] and in the Lakeside Apartments District near Lake Merritt. The 10K plan has touched the historic Old Oakland
Old Oakland
district, the Chinatown district, the Uptown district, and Downtown. Brown surpassed the stated goal of attracting 10,000 residents according to city records, and built more affordable housing than previous mayoral administrations.[69] Brown had campaigned on fixing Oakland's schools, but "bureaucratic battles" dampened his efforts. He concedes he never had control of the schools, and his reform efforts were "largely a bust".[66] He focused instead on the creation of two charter schools, the Oakland School for the Arts and the Oakland Military Institute.[66] Defending his support of a military charter school in Oakland, Brown once told KQED reporter Stephen Talbot, "I believe that had I been sent to the military academy, as my mother and father threatened, I would have been president a long time ago."[71] Another area of disappointment was overall crime. Brown sponsored nearly two dozen crime initiatives to reduce the crime rate,[72] although crime decreased by 13 percent overall, the city still suffered a "57 percent spike in homicides his final year in office, to 148 overall".[66] Brown's largely successful first term as mayor of Oakland was documented in a one-hour KQED documentary, "The Celebrity and the City" (2001) that evaluated his record in dealing with his four stated goals: reducing crime, improving education, attracting 10,000 new residents to a resurgent downtown, and encouraging the arts.[73] Attorney General of California

56.3% to 38.2%, one of the largest margins of victory in any statewide California

race.[74] In the final weeks leading up to Election Day, Brown's eligibility to run for attorney general was challenged in what Brown called a "political stunt by a Republican office seeker" ( Contra Costa County

Republican Central Committee chairman and state GOP vice-chair candidate Tom Del Beccaro). Plaintiffs claimed Brown did not meet eligibility according to California
California
Government Code §12503, "No person shall be eligible to the office of Attorney General unless he shall have been admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the state for a period of at least five years immediately preceding his election or appointment to such office." Legal analysts called the lawsuit frivolous because Brown was admitted to practice law in the State of California

on June 14, 1965, and had been so admitted to practice ever since. Although ineligible to practice law because of his voluntary inactive status in the State Bar of California

from January 1, 1997, to May 1, 2003, he was nevertheless still admitted to practice. Because of this difference the case was eventually thrown out.[75][76] As attorney general, Brown represented the state in fighting death-penalty appeals and stated that he would follow the law, regardless of his personal beliefs against capital punishment. Capital punishment by lethal injection was halted in California

until new facilities and procedures were put into place.[77] Brown moved to resume capital punishment in 2010 with the execution of Albert Greenwood Brown

after the lifting of a statewide moratorium by a California

court.[78] Brown's Democratic campaign, which pledged to "enforce the laws" of California, denied any connection between the case and the gubernatorial election. Prosecutor Rod Pacheco, who supported Republican opponent Meg Whitman, said that it would be unfair to accuse Jerry Brown
Jerry Brown
of using the execution for political gain as they never discussed the case.[79] In June 2008, Brown filed a fraud lawsuit claiming mortgage lender Countrywide Financial
Countrywide Financial
engaged in "unfair and deceptive" practices to get homeowners to apply for risky mortgages far beyond their means.[80][81] Brown accused the lender of breaking the state's laws against false advertising and unfair business practices. The lawsuit also claimed the defendant misled many consumers by misinforming them about the workings of certain mortgages such adjustable-rate mortgages, interest-only loans, low-documentation loans and home-equity loans while telling borrowers they would be able to refinance before the interest rate on their loans adjusted.[82] The suit was settled in October 2008 after Bank of America

acquired Countrywide. The settlement involved the modifying of troubled 'predatory loans' up to $8.4 billion.[83] Proposition 8, a contentious voter-approved amendment to the state constitution that banned same-sex marriage was upheld in May 2009 by the California

Supreme Court.[84][85] In August 2010, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
California
ruled that Proposition 8 violated the Due Process and the Equal Protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.[86] Brown and then Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger both declined to appeal the ruling.[87] The state appeals court declined to order the men to defend the proposition and scheduled a hearing in early December to see if there is "legal standing to appeal Walker's ruling".[88] 39th governor of California

gubernatorial election, 2010

Sacramento
two days before the election

Brown announced his candidacy for governor on March 2, 2010.[89] First indicating his interest in early 2008, Brown formed an exploratory committee in order to seek a third term as governor in 2010, following the expiration of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's term.[90][91] Brown's Republican opponent in the election was former eBay president Meg Whitman. Brown was endorsed by the Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Times,[92] The Sacramento
Sacramento
Bee,[93] the San Francisco
San Francisco
Chronicle,[17] the San Jose Mercury News,[94] and the Service Employees International Union.[95] Both Whitman and Brown were criticized for negative campaigning during the election.[96] During their final debate at the 2010 Women's Conference a week before the election, moderator Matt Lauer
Matt Lauer
asked both candidates to pull attack ads for the rest of the election, which elicited loud cheers from the audience.[96] Brown agreed and picked one ad each of his and Whitman's that he thought, if Whitman would agree, should be the only ones run, but Whitman, who had been loudly cheered earlier as the prospective first woman governor of the state, was booed when she stated that she would keep "the ads that talk about where Gov. Brown stands on the issues".[97] The Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Times reported that nearly $250 million was spent on the Governor's race.[98] At least two spending records were broken during the campaign. Whitman broke personal spending records by spending $140 million of her own money on the campaign,[99] and independent expenditures exceeded $31.7 million, with almost $25 million of that spent in support of Brown.[100] Despite being significantly outspent by Whitman, Brown won the gubernatorial race 53.8% to Whitman's 40.9%. Brown was sworn in for his third term as governor on January 3, 2011, succeeding Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger
who had been term-limited. Brown is working on a budget that would shift many government programs from the state to the local level, a reversal of trends from his first tenure as governor.[101] On June 28, 2012, Governor Brown signed a budget that made deep cuts to social services with the assumption that voters would pass $8 billion in tax hikes in November 2012 to close California's $15.7-billion budget deficit. "This budget reflects tough choices that will help get California
California
back on track", Governor Brown said in a statement.[102] Governor Brown stated: "We need budget cuts. We need the continued growth of the economy for a long period of time. We're suffering from the mortgage meltdown that killed 600,000 jobs in the construction industry. ... We're recovering from a national recession slowly—over 300,000 jobs [gained] since the recession. We've got a million to go. That needs to continue, but that depends not only on Barack Obama and the Congress and the Federal Reserve, but also on [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel, China, the European Union, and the self-organizing quality of the world economy."[103] In September 2012, Brown signed legislation sponsored by California State Senator Ted Lieu
Ted Lieu
that prohibits protesters at funerals within 300 feet, with convicted violators punishable with fines and jail time; the legislation was in response to protests conducted by the Westboro Baptist Church.[104] In the November 2012 general elections, voters approved Brown's proposed tax increases in the form of Proposition 30. Prop 30 raised the state personal income tax increase over seven years for California residents with an annual income over US$250,000 and increased in the state sales tax by 0.25 percent over four years. It allowed the state to avoid nearly $6 billion in cuts to public education.[105] In 2013, Brown proposed a large, $25 billion Bay Delta Conservation Plan[106] (later renamed the California
California
Water Fix and Eco Restore project) to build two large, four-story tall, 30 miles (48 km) long tunnels to carry fresh water from the Sacramento
Sacramento
River under the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
toward the intake stations for the State Water Project and the Central Valley Project.[107] Unlike his earlier Peripheral Canal project, the two tunnels are to be funded by the agencies and users receiving benefit from the project and do not require voter approval.[108] In July 2014, Brown traveled to Mexico to hold meetings with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto
Enrique Peña Nieto
and other Central American leaders about the ongoing children's immigration crisis.[109] On September 16, 2014, Gov. Brown signed a historical package of groundwater legislation. The plan will regulate local agencies and also implement management plans to achieve water sustainability within 20 years.[110] Fourth term[edit] Main article: California
California
gubernatorial election, 2014

Brown announced his bid for re-election on February 27, 2014. On June 3, he came first in the primary election by over 1.5 million votes. He received 54.3% of the vote and advanced to the general election with Republican Neel Kashkari, who took 19.38% of the vote. There was only one gubernatorial debate. When asked to schedule another, Brown declined.[111] During the debate in Sacramento
Sacramento
on September 4, 2014, Kashkari accused Brown of failing to improve California's business climate. His leading example was the Tesla Motors factory investment, creating 6,500 manufacturing jobs, going to Nevada
Nevada
rather than California. Brown responded that the cash payment upfront required by the investment would have been unfair to California
California
taxpayers.[112] A range of issues were debated, including recent legislation for a ban on plastic bags at grocery stores that Brown promised to sign and Kashkari thought unimportant.[113] Brown said that if he were elected to a fourth and final term, he would continue transferring power to local authorities, particularly over education and criminal justice policy, and would resist fellow Democrats' "gold rush for new programs and spending".[33] In the general election, Brown was re-elected by 3,645,835 votes (59.2%) to Kashkari's 2,511,722 (40.8%). His stated goals for his unprecedented fourth term in office are to construct the California High-Speed Rail, to create tunnels to shore up the state's water system and to curb carbon dioxide emissions. He still has $20 million in campaign funds he can use to advance ballot measures in case the legislature does not support his plans.[114] In October 2015 Brown signed off the California
California
End of Life Option Act allowing residents of California
California
who fulfilled strict criteria to exercise the right to die by accessing medical aid in dying. During the sign off he took the unusual step of adding a personal message indicating his dilemma regarding the consideration of the ethical issues involved and stating that he felt unable to deny the right of choice to others.[115][116] On December 18, 2015, Brown moved into the Historic Governor's Mansion, now part of Governor's Mansion State Historic Park. In the 2018-19 budget plan that Brown released on January 10, 2018, the Governor proposed spending $120 million to establish California's first fully online community college by fall 2019.[117] Electoral history[edit] Main article: Electoral history of Jerry Brown Personal life[edit]

Anne Gust, Brown's wife

A bachelor as governor and mayor, Brown attracted attention for dating high-profile women, the most notable of whom was singer Linda Ronstadt.[118][119][120][121][122] In March 2005, Brown announced his engagement to his girlfriend since 1990, Anne Gust, former chief administrative officer for The Gap.[123] They were married on June 18, 2005 in a ceremony officiated by Senator Dianne Feinstein
Dianne Feinstein
in the Rotunda Building in downtown Oakland. They had a second, religious ceremony later in the day in the Roman Catholic Church
Roman Catholic Church
in San Francisco where Brown's parents had been married. Brown and Gust live in the Oakland Hills in a home purchased for $1.8 million, as reported by The Huffington Post.[124] Jerry Brown's wife is his closest adviser and confidante and acted as a steadying influence in the resurgence of his political life [125]. Beginning in 1995, Brown hosted a daily call-in talk show on the local Pacifica Radio station, KPFA-FM, in Berkeley broadcast to major U.S. markets.[56] Both the radio program and Brown's political action organization, based in Oakland, were called We the People.[56] His programs, usually featuring invited guests, generally explored alternative views on a wide range of social and political issues, from education and health care to spirituality and the death penalty.[56] The official gubernatorial portrait of Jerry Brown, commemorating his first period as Governor of California, was painted by Don Bachardy and unveiled in 1984. The painting has long been controversial due to its departure from the traditional norms of portraiture.[126] Brown has a long-term friendship with his aide Jacques Barzaghi, whom he met in the early 1970s and put on his payroll. Author Roger Rapaport wrote in his 1982 Brown biography California
California
Dreaming: The Political Odyssey of Pat & Jerry Brown, "This combination clerk, chauffeur, fashion consultant, decorator, and trusted friend had no discernible powers. Yet, late at night, after everyone had gone home to their families and TV consoles, it was Jacques who lingered in the Secretary (of state's) office." Barzaghi and his sixth spouse Aisha lived with Brown in the warehouse in Jack London Square; Barzaghi was brought into Oakland city government upon Brown's election as mayor, where Barzaghi first acted as the mayor's armed bodyguard. Barzaghi left Brown's staff in July 2004, six days after police had responded to his residence over a complaint of domestic violence.[127] In April 2011, Brown had surgery to remove a basal-cell carcinoma from the right side of his nose.[128] In December 2012, media outlets reported that Brown was being treated for early stage (the precise stage and grade was not stated) localized prostate cancer with a very good prognosis.[129] In 2011, Jerry and Anne Gust
Anne Gust
Brown adopted a Pembroke Welsh corgi, Sutter Brown, dubbed the "first dog" of California.[130] Sutter was frequently seen in the company of the governor, accompanying him to political events and softening the governor's cerebral image.[131][132] In 2015, the couple adopted a second dog, Colusa "Lucy" Brown, a Pembroke Welsh corgi/border collie mix.[133] Sutter died in December 2016 from cancer.
