Mission District Supervisor David Campos is on the cover of the San Francisco Examiner this morning. He is squaring off against Supervisor David Chiu for California’s 17th Assembly District seat once Tom Ammiano is termed out. Campos declared his candidacy six weeks ago. If elected, he would be the first Latino from San Francisco in that seat. Chiu declared his candidacy a week ago online. If elected, he would be the first Asian in that seat. The race is on.

Tonight there will be a party to fundraise for the Mission’s beloved Tamale Lady, also known as Virginia Ramos, to set her up in a restaurant of her own after being kicked out of Zeitgeist. The party starts at 9 p.m. at the Knockout. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page.
