San Francisco Democratic Party details endorsement
From the San Francisco Democratic Party
August 23, 2006
The members of San Francisco's Democratic County Central Committee
(DCCC) met Monday night to discuss their endorsements for the
upcoming November election.
The Committee voted on candidates up for election and re-election
for the School Board, College Board, District Supervisor positions,
the Public Defender's office, the Assessor-Recorder's office,
and Local and State-wide initiatives.
Public Defender Jeff Adachi and Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting both
are running unopposed and both were endorsed unanimously by acclamation.
Jaynry Mak won the crucial endorsement in the District 4 Supervisor
race. District 4 is the only seat that does not have an incumbent
as District 4 Supervisor Fiona Ma is running for State Assembly
and won the Democratic Primary in June.
Incumbent Supervisors Michela Alioto-Pier, Daly, Dufty, and Maxwell
were also endorsed for re-election to the Board of Supervisors.
The SF Democratic Party adopted the California Democratic Party
positions with the exception of proposition 83 and 89. The SF
Democratic Party endorsed Proposition 89, the Clean Money initiative
while the State Party took no position. On Wednesday, August 23,
the SF Democratic Party will reconsider Proposition 83.
"When I ran for the SF Democratic Party Chair, I vowed to
make electing Phil Angelides Governor our priority" said
Scott Wiener "but our local endorsements are also an important
priority. We will work hard to ensure the election of our local
Democratic leaders and to pass pro-labor, pro-environment, and
pro-tenant legislation on the November ballot. We are also resolute
in our determination to re-defeat Proposition 85, the so-called
Parental notification initiative."
