Scorecard for Local Politicians
Dean Preston Got 47% of Vote
Defying expectations, Dean Preston got over 47% of the votes (with almost all the votes counted) against a well-funded incumbent Board President. Breed moved to the left in this campaign against a progressive tenant supporter and the pressure continues.

San Francisco Tenants Union volunteer Scott Weaver was the attorney for the appeal. The message is that rapid displacement and gentrification have to be a central concern for all project approvals.
