Per Uptown Almanac, Cole Valley’s very own District Supervisor, father of the plastic bag ban, Ross Mirkarimi, will soon be announcing his intention to run for Mayor of our fair City.
He’s got a solid record on many neighborhood, transit & environmental issues, but so does David Chiu, who’s likely to throw his hat in the ring as well.
The question is, will either of them (or whoever ends up winning) finally find ways to make this city run more efficiently/effectively, or will we just have more Newsom-esque proclamations about how green and cutting edge we are while outdated Muni equipment continues to fail and City employees/managers keep getting paid huge salaries/benefits while the rest of us barely scrape by?
And, if Ross were to win, who would be our next supervisor? Any suggestions?
