Governor Gavin Newsom today issued the following statement regarding the death of Charlotte Shultz, Chief of Protocol for the State of California and Chief of Protocol for the City and County of San Francisco:
“Charlotte was the quintessential San Franciscan – defined by her eye for the fantastic and the flourish with which she welcomed visiting dignitaries, foreign consuls and San Franciscans from all walks of life. She helped make the City of San Francisco the vibrant, international city it is today.
“Charlotte’s commitment to California’s civic betterment led to millions of dollars for libraries, parks and arts institutions. It is hard to imagine California without Charlotte Shultz. We will miss her terribly.
In honor of Shultz, flags at the Stanford Mansion and Governor’s Mansion will be flown at half-staff.
