Keeping Things Cool at the Governor’s Mansion
by Marybeth Bizjak
Jerry Brown has come a long way from the 1970s, when he famously slept on a mattress on the floor during his first stint as governor. Recently, Brown and his wife moved into the historic Governor’s Mansion, which underwent a $4.1 million renovation. Among the house’s new amenities: a $16,000 Sub-Zero 648 Pro refrigerator. Called “a monument to food preservation” on the company’s website, it has two compressors, three evaporators, “soft bright” interior lighting and exterior temperature display.
