Election 2015: San Francisco mayoral candidate Amy Farah Weiss

Ben Trefny
Amy Farah Weiss

Amy Farah Weiss is on the ballot as one of six candidates to be mayor of San Francisco. Weiss was born in Berkeley and raised in San Jose. She’s the daughter of union workers, and she’s the first generation in her family to go to college, earning a master’s degree in Organizational Development and Training from S.F. State in 2010. Amy Farah Weiss sat down with KALW’s Ben Trefny to talk about her campaign.

I've been able to hang on for the last four years of the Lee administration, and I feel that if he gets reelected, it's going to be game over for my future here and the future of many others.
