An Independent Leader

With The Experience to Get Things Done

Rafael Mandelman is running to bring practical, real world experience to the Board of Supervisors, cut through the ideology and pessimism, and bring big solutions to the problems facing San Francisco.


“There is no question that Mandelman wants the job, and is doing his homework. He gets our endorsement in the June 5 primary.” (San Francisco Chronicle, March 9, 2018)
