On Saturday, Nov. 7, the final votes were tallied and it was announced that Connie Chan won the general election to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. She will represent District 1, replacing outgoing Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, who chose not to run for reelection.
Links to statements from the District 1 candidates, November, 2020.
I am your neighbor, running to represent you on the Board of Supervisors. At a time when so many Richmond families and small businesses are being squeezed by this pandemic, I am running to ensure that you have a voice at City Hall. The stakes are too high for us to go back to politics as usual.
I was born in the Richmond, and now my husband Byron and I are raising our three kids in the neighborhood. I’m running for supervisor because for too long, elected officials have allowed the challenges facing our neighborhood to continue and worsen. We can’t afford four more years of inaction.
Let me start by thanking the Richmond Review for giving me the opportunity to write a column for our local paper. I have lived in Inner Richmond for 15 years now. Some of the best and worst moments in my life, either personally or professionally thus far, happened in San Francisco.
Our neighborhood deserves leadership that is progressive, pragmatic, and puts the Richmond first. My name is David Lee and I believe that our district has been neglected by City Hall for too long.
I believe the Richmond District can be a better place to live, work and visit. Working together we can clean our streets, fix our sidewalks and roads, and make the streets safer for our family, friends and neighbors.
I remember the first time I saw San Francisco. I was 13 years old arriving in the city with my family. My mother brought my brother and me here to give us a new start.
