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

May 29, 2018

 

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."
