14 Candidates Line Up For San Francisco Supervisor Daly’s Spot

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Fourteen candidates are competing for a San Francisco supervisor’s seat being vacated by termed-out leftist Chris Daly.

On Nov. 2, District Six voters will be choosing their representative on the Board of Supervisors for the first time in a decade.

The district, which ranges from luxury condo high-rises to skid-row flophouses, has undergone dramatic changes in demographics and development since Daly was elected in 2000.

Daly is a former community organizer who has been a staunch advocate for tenants’ rights, affordable housing and social service programs.

Business, law-and-order and real estate interests are working to replace him with a more moderate candidate.

But the race includes candidates who are passionate about continuing Daly’s liberal legacy.
