Hi, my name is Trevor McNeil and I’m running to be your next District 4 supervisor.

I’m running because I want our neighborhoods to be safe, affordable and vibrant for San Francisco families. I was raised in San Francisco and now I’m raising my three children in the Sunset. I truly believe our city government should be enriching our neighborhoods and making it easier, not harder, for families to stay in San Francisco.

I’m a proud parent, public school teacher and life-long San Franciscan. I want to ensure that San Francisco is a family-friendly city. As a renter and a public school teacher, I know how difficult it is for working people to afford to live in the Sunset.

Not too long ago, my family of five was stuck in a one-bedroom apartment because we simply couldn’t afford a larger space in the City. I know the pain of the housing crisis first hand.

If elected supervisor, I will prioritize family-sized affordable housing, increase the amount of affordable housing available across the City and work to expand and improve policies that help families find housing in the Sunset.

We must continue to improve public safety in the Sunset. I will work closely with the SF Police Department to keep our neighborhoods safe, especially from property crimes and car breakins.

Our police department has been chronically understaffed for years, making it difficult to do the necessary foot patrols and police work in our communities. I will push for more Police Academy classes and full staffing at our police stations.

Homelessness affects all neighborhoods in our City and I am committed to humane policies that guide our homeless populations off the street and into supportive housing. I will form a district-specific homeless outreach team, comprised of law enforcement and social workers, to concurrently address street behavior and get homeless residents the help they need.

Our transportation systems are far from what they should be in the Sunset and Parkside. Over the years, we’ve made it more difficult to drive in San Francisco, but we haven’t made it easier to bike or take public transit. If we expect families to leave behind their cars, we must guarantee that Muni is reliable, efficient and keeps up with the growing demands of our district.

We must hold the SFMTA accountable to our residents’ needs and concerns. The agency must improve its communication and outreach about planned improvements and take the neighborhood’s input seriously.

I’m proud to have the endorsements of Board of Equalization member and former District 4 Supervisor Fiona Ma, state Sen. Scott Wiener, Sheriff Vicki Hennessy and community leader Ron Dudum.

If elected supervisor, I will bring transparency and accountability to City Hall.

I believe that together we can improve our City. My door will always be open.
