District 5 Supervisor London Breed formally announced her re-election campaign in an email this morning. "While I am so proud of the work we have done, I never forget that there is much more to accomplish and many challenges that lie ahead," she wrote.
The top four issues that Breed addressed in her campaign announcement include building and protecting already-existing affordable housing, increasing public safety, improving environmental health, and modernizing public transportation.
Breed currently has one opponent in the race: Dean Preston, a tenants rights lawyer who lives near Alamo Square. We'll let you know if any other candidates announce their intention to run.
The city's district supervisors will be up for election on November 8th, which will be a big day at the polls, as voters choose a new president as well as their local supervisors.
