My Top 3 Priorities

  • I’m running to help reclaim the San Francisco Democratic Party from the real estate industry and corporate lobbyists who have taken it over to serve their own interests. At this critical time for our city, we need the San Francisco Democratic Party
  • Job one for the new members SF Democratic County Central Committee will be to reform the SF Democratic Party itself by ending the unlimited campaign contribution loophole that exists for the SF DCCC by applying the $500 limit that voters have approve
  • The SF Democratic Party should be a leader in the fight to fix the Ellis Act, expand rent control, and build affordable housing instead of more luxury condos.



For the last fifteen years, I have been working hard to preserve San Francisco’s neighborhoods, environment, and unique character and I’ll work just as hard for the SF Democratic Party if I am elected to serve on its governing body.  I worked with the Sierra Club and Save the Bay to stop the SF Airport from paving over two square miles of the Bay for new runways.  I led the battle to pass 2004’s Proposition I, which voters approved to require MUNI to replace its dirtiest diesel buses with cleaner hybrid-electrics. I fought to stop a shopping mall from being built by the Mills Corporation at Piers 27-31 – instead we have a cruise ship terminal that brings in visitors from around the world to SF every week.  I led the campaign to protect Coit Tower and pass the Coit Tower Preservation ballot measure that forced the city to stop neglecting Coit Tower and its historic New Deal-era murals, to spend $1.7 million to restore Coit Tower and the murals, and to start treating the murals as the San Francisco treasure that they are.  I led the No Wall on the Waterfront campaign to defeat the 8 Washington high-rise luxury condos and the battle to pass Prop. B in June 2014 to give voters the power to protect our waterfront by requiring voter approval for any waterfront height limit increases.
