Gov. Jerry Brown will finish his final term at noon Monday and then head to his Colusa ranch with wife, Anne Gust Brown.

Brown tweeted a video compilation of his accomplishments Friday afternoon, along with a three-word political farewell: “Thank you, California.”

Indeed, several of Brown’s achievements wouldn’t have been possible without the backing of voters.

Genuine Thanks or Legacy Building?

Some may see the video as nothing more than legacy-building.

But it does serve to remind us that California had lost its mojo and was on the verge of bankruptcy until he defeated Meg Whittman in 2010 and returned to the state Capitol for the third of his four terms.
