Bold Leadership that Delivers for San Francisco

Thank you for making sure our Assembly campaign came in first place in the June primary election. I was deeply honored to win in June, and to have your support as we move onward to the general election in November. 

I am running to represent the 17th Assembly District in our California State Legislature because San Francisco deserves an independent and effective voice that will deliver results in Sacramento.

Six years ago, I entered City Hall to put an end to the deep divides that had kept San Francisco from moving forward. Since then, I have had the honor of working alongside San Franciscans from all backgrounds and neighborhoods to find common ground and creative solutions for the toughest challenges facing our city. My ability to work with all sides to build consensus is the reason my colleagues have elected me to serve as President of the Board of Supervisors for an unprecedented three consecutive terms.

As a Supervisor, I have had a track record of successfully championing bold policies that have created a thriving local economy, protected our most vulnerable residents, and put San Francisco on the forefront of vital public issues.

While San Francisco has come a long way in recent years, we still face great challenges. To solve these challenges, our City needs a leader who can go to Sacramento and bring people together to deliver for all San Franciscans. I have demonstrated that leadership in San Francisco, which is why I have received the endorsements of 4 local papers, over 40 state and local elected officials, and more than 50 labor, Democratic and advocacy organizations.

My top priorities in the state legislature will be to fight for the resources San Franciscans need the most: to build more affordable housing, to fund our consistently underfunded public schools, and to fix our broken transit system.

San Francisco needs bold effective, leadership in Sacramento that can truly deliver for our City. I would be honored to count on your support as we work together to make our great state a better place for all Californians, and hope you can join us today on our campaign as we move San Francisco forward.

Thank you,
