Mayoral candidate Angela Alioto wants to shake up SF's city hall

Ben Trefny
Mayoral candidate Angela Alioto


Angela Alioto has been involved with politics in San Francisco for longer than she’s been a politician. That’s because her father, Joseph Alioto, was the city’s mayor 50 years ago.

Alioto has had a distinguished career in elected office, herself. She served on the Board of Supervisors in the 1990s, was president of the board for a few years, and authored the city’s sanctuary city law. Now she wants to be mayor.

"I don't think I've ever seen San Francisco in worst shape, and so I decided to run for mayor."
