After four months of support from volunteers and donors, Glendon “Anna Conda” Hyde announced her candidacy Friday for District 6 supervisor. An activist and community leader who has been working as a gay rights advocate since 1984, she announced her plans to “fight for affordable housing and help small businesses retain a stake in their neighborhoods.”
She joins a long list of candidates who will replace outgoing District 6 Supervisor Chris Daly: Matthew Ashe, Harold Brown, Renato Cazares, Dean Clark, Gary Converse, Christopher Dahl, Matthew Drake, Jeff Gustavson, Rodney Hauge, Elihu Hernandez, Robert Jordan, James Keys, Jane Kim, John Markham, Jim Meko, Nate Payne, Robert Raeburn, Mark Schwartz, Theresa Sparks, David Villa-Lobos, Debra Walker, John Weber and Elaine Zamora.
District 6 covers several neighborhoods, including SoMa, Mission Bay, Civic Center and the Tenderloin.
“For 15 years I have worked with Rebecca — and she has always been consistent,” Dufty said. “She works the hardest, holds herself to the highest standards of integrity and shows us that politics should be foremost about helping people.”
Other current District 8 candidates include: James Boeger, William Hemenger, Rafael Mandelman, Starchild and Scott Wiener.
District 8 encompasses several neighborhoods, including part of the Mission, Castro, Noe Valley, Glen Park, Diamond Heights and Buena Vista Heights.
