My name is Tuan Nguyen, a Sunset native, and I am running for District 4 supervisor.
I look forward to meeting you throughout the campaign. I have built lasting relationships with Sunset/Parkside families, small businesses and ethnic communities over the last 37 years in our neighborhood. I am a graduate of Holy Name, Saint Ignatius and SF State University. My family has deep roots in the west side.
As chairperson, I worked to fundraise monies and support to rebuild the LEED certified Ortega Branch Library. I was elected to serve as president of the Westside Democratic Club.
As regional field director with Youth for Understanding, I supervised international high school students on exchange programs, complying with local school districts, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Justice and partner countries. I have consulted and managed multiple non-profit and political campaigns.
Through it all, I have earned the trust of the people. I have many residents’ confidence to get the job done. That matters.
Changes to San Francisco have threatened to impact our middle-class families. Native San Franciscans can no longer afford to live in the City. We must keep our district uniquely diverse. With more than 20 years of leadership, activism and community engagement experience, I will lead District 4 independently, devoid of the moderate versus progressive division at City Hall.
Affordable housing, public education and ensuring our district gets the resources it needs are my priorities. Conservation, alternative energy/transportation, safe/clean streets and equal rights are also concerns of mine.
I have attended hundreds of community meetings and have led neighborhood campaigns with Fiona Ma, Ron Dudum, Gavin Newsom and David Wong. I pledge to put our district on the map and lead the fight for district resources.
I love the Sunset and I love the City. I am running because I feel I’m the best candidate to lead the Sunset and Parkside. I can work with all stakeholders collaboratively. Campaign after campaign, I grew my connections and established strong relationships with volunteers and other constituents. Grass-roots activism is in my blood and many asked when I was going to run for office. They saw great potential for leadership and service.
On the backs of impactful activists and city leaders, I learned about empowering the community. I am a different breed. I dare to be great!
We are fighting for the soul of the City. I accept the challenge of ensuring that there is affordable housing; an excellent public education for our children; our seniors are being taken care of; SFMTA is held accountable; homelessness and clean streets actually get addressed; and equality across genders, races and communities are enacted.
I pledge to be the independent candidate who will be the leader and voice that you deserve.
