Candidate forum on August 26

We emailed questionnaires to all candidates for Supervisor, Mayor, and College Board who gave their contact info to the Department of Elections.  We have invited all candidates who return completed questionnaires on time to speak and answer questions at our candidate forum and endorsement meeting, on Wednesday, August 26 from 6-9 pm (note new start time).  This forum is open to the public, and everybody is invited!  Our forum and endorsement meeting will take place in room 302 of Redstone Building, located at 2940 16th Street (between Mission and South Van Ness, 1 block from 16th St BART).

 

We've already made early endorsements of Francisco Herrera for Mayor and Ross Mirkarimi for Sheriff.  We will consider endorsing other candidates and ballot propositions at this meeting.

 

Ballot propositions and their text are on the Department of Elections website.  We'll have outside presenters for some of the more difficult ones, and have shorter discussions on others.

 

We received the following responses from candidates seeking our endorsement.  Please read them before the meeting so you can follow up on anything of particular interest:

 

Mayoral candidates: Amy Farah Weiss, Reed Martin, Stuart Schuffman (late; received Oct 14)

 

College Board candiates: Wendy Aragon, Alex Randolph, Tom Temprano, Jason Zeng

 

Supervisor: No candidates from District 3 are seeking our endorsement.
