With only three months until the next election cycle, three of District 1's candidates for supervisor have staked their claims on some prime neighborhood real estate from which to operate their campaigns.

Here's a look at the three candidates with headquarters set up in the neighborhood—Sandra Lee Fewer, Marjan Philhour, and Sherman D'Silva—and a list of their competitors.

Sandra Lee Fewer has set up camp at 4239 Geary Boulevard (pictured above), in the vacant space adjacent to Cheap Pete's framing shop and owned by the owner of neighboring French restaurant The Tricolor.

"Our new headquarters at 4239 Geary Blvd. (between 6th and 7th) is working out really well," wrote campaign staffer Dyan Ruiz. "We often get people dropping by to find out more about the campaign or about voting in general. In particular, we’ve helped monolingual Chinese residents with voter registration inquiries. The campaign has worked hard to make the space reflect Sandy and her policy priorities.”

Marjan Philhour's offices at 5909 Geary Blvd. are set up in the space formerly occupied by a Russian toy store Arkeum, which closed earlier this year.

In an email, Philhour wrote, "We’re excited to have a centrally located space in the Richmond. If elected, I will open a help desk or office in the Richmond District so neighbors won’t have to go all the way to City Hall to have their voices heard and their needs addressed."

And last but not least, candidate Sherman D'Silva, who's running a low-budget campaign, is operating a de facto headquarters out of his Shermsonia Laundromat, at 5539 Geary, with pamphlets and a TV that's running taped promo material out front.

The D1 supervisor candidates' ticket is crowded this year; other candidates listed in the running are David E. Lee, Andy Thornley, Jason Jungreis, Jonathan Lyens, Richie Greenberg, Brian J. Larkin, and Samuel Kwong.
