MISSION LOCAL: Meet the District 11 candidates: What potential do you see in D11?

Welcome back to “Meet the Candidates” series for District 11, where we ask each candidate to answer one question per week leading up to the election, with answers in about 100 words.

District 11 Supervisor Ahsha Safaí is termed out — and running for mayor — and, so far, seven candidates, including three that filed last week, have thrown their hats in the ring to replace him as the representative of the Excelsior, Oceanview and Outer Mission. 

In week 8, we are asking: What potential do you see in District 11?

District 11, one of the most diverse districts in SF, is home to longtime multigenerational residents who’ve been the mainstay of our community. 

My vision is a community where residents forge strong, collaborative ties. Together we can accomplish this by creating community hubs and ensuring services are available to everyone. 

We need to foster commercial revitalization, and improve the safety and functionality of our public infrastructure

My vision for District 11 is a community that is even more inclusive, and to foster a thriving neighborhood that truly reflects the values and needs of all its residents.
