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.
