Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government


Gov. Jerry Brown, out pushing his tax plan in Stockton on Thursday, hit the playground at the elementary school where he spoke.

Can a Capitol Alert Caption Contest be far behind?

In a photo posted on Twitter by Brown's press secretary, Gil Duran, the 73-year-old governor appears to be launching a wide-open, three-point try. Or demonstrating some yoga-based pose with an exercise ball.

Duran said in a Twitter post accompanying the photograph that Brown "took care of some important business on the courts."

No word if he made it.

For those of you new to Capitol Alert's caption contest (or those who need a refresher), here's the deal:
