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.

    ..and the names of candidates and their goals for the district are?….The one candidate who’s a former US Marine , I believe , looks reasonable….so he probably doesn’t stand a chance…but then again , I think that SF district 6 residents/voters may finally be fed up and scared enough to consider more moderate candidates and ‘pass’ on Marxist/Leninist’ aspirants….More Carmen Chu , Alioto Pier , Elsbernd democrats for sanity’s sake and the survival , restoration of this once great little city!….Dan White was , alas , correct in his criticism/skepticism of the whole ‘district supervisor’ model/concept….
