Democrat for College Board

San Francisco has been good to me. Growing up here as a kid living with foster families, lots of people stepped up to help me make my way.  With their help and generous financial aid, I was able to attend and graduate from Lick-Wilmerding High School and go on to earn degrees from Yale, Harvard and UC Berkeley. Today I work as a lawyer in private practice helping local governments around the Bay Area make life better for their communities. In my free time I try to give back to the City that gave so much to me.  In 2010, I ran to represent District 8 on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, and although I did not win that race, it was a great honor to earn the votes of nearly 15,000 voters who shared my vision of San Francisco as a city that leaves no one behind, a place where every child has the same opportunities to survive and thrive that I did.  In 2012, as City College of San Francisco was descending into an accreditation crisis that continues to threaten the survival of one of San Francisco’s most vital institutions, I ran for the College District’s Board of Trustees and won. Since that time I have worked tirelessly to save our City College.  Thank you for visiting this web page. I hope to use it to keep my friends and supporters updated on the fight to save City College, as well as my other activities.  Thank you for visiting!
