Candidate Statements

For each San Francisco election, we produce (in cooperation with SFGovTV) video statements by candidates for office. 


All candidates are offered the opportunity to make a video. 


Videos are a maximum of five minutes and offer candidates the opportunity to present their qualifications and views on important issues.

The League of Women Voters of San Francisco does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.


The events are non-partisan, free and open to the public. For some forums, online advance registration may be required. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

2019 District 5 Board of Supervisors Candidate Forums

The candidates for District 5 Supervisor answered audience questions about key policy issues in District 5 and San Francisco at two Candidate Forums organized by the League of Women Voters of San Francisco. These were both great opportunities for voters in District 5 to learn more about the candidates before casting their votes.

 

The first forum on September 16, 2019 was sponsored by UCSF and held at Cole Hall on the UCSF Parnassus campus. Our co-sponsors were D5 Action, Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council and the Junior League of San Francisco.


The second forum on October 10, 2019, held at the Japantown Cultural and Community Center of Northern California, was co-sponsored by the Cathedral Hill Neighbors Association and the Japantown Task Force.


The San Francisco Department of Elections provided valuable information and answered voter questions at both forums.


Candidates:

Vallie Brown

Ryan Lam

Nomvula O'Meara

Dean Preston

The forum, expertly moderated by Marisa Lagos, KQED Politics Correspondent and co-host of Political Breakdown, was an excellent opportunity to hear the four candidates answer questions and present their visions of criminal justice in San Francisco in the 21st century.
