SF Gate has a piece up on June voting and its usefulness as a dress rehearsal for candidates. District Supervisors David Campos and David Chiu are both on the ballot with Republican David Salaverry, who is unlikely to win many votes. The top two vote-getters move on and that means we will see Campos and Chiu again on the November ballot.
The article points out that Chiu has raised $608,000 compared to Campos’s $368,000. Despite the attacks in campaign literature:
“the two agree on a lot. Both cite the city’s housing shortage, affordability issues, transportation investment and education as priorities. And their legislative vote records are strikingly similar, save for the Mirkarimi issue, a few housing developments and one tax reform measure that Chiu supported and Campos opposed.” READ MORE.
The Mirkarimi issue is a reference to Campos’s vote to support Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi after his guilty plea for a domestic violence misdemeanor.
