Every 10 years, our City’s charter requires that we draw new district lines based on the decennial census to ensure our population per district is as evenly distributed as possible. San Francisco had at-large supervisor races until 1976 when district elections led to the election of Harvey Milk. District elections were repealed in 1980, then reinstated in 1996, taking effect in 2000.

San Francisco continues to face an unprecedented housing affordability crisis. With the exception of the brief dip in the rental housing market during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s harder and harder for working families to afford to live in San Francisco.
As the COVID-19 Delta variant surges, we see social economic disparities continue to widen. As our economy and society are reopening, the ability to continue working remotely, being able to travel safely and getting back to “normal” is a privilege that is still not available to many working families.
A year ago, in my “New Start” plan, I outlined a plan for COVID recovery and my commitment to working families, tenants, and small businesses. I’m happy that through this year’s budget, we are delivering on our promises and all of my colleagues are committed to making sure that our recovery does not leave anyone behind.
