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.

Ellen Lee Zhou is a public health worker and union bargaining team member in San Francisco who has had enough of politics as usual. So she decided to run for mayor.

Supervisor Jane Kim is one of eight candidates in the race for mayor of San Francisco. She’s the first Korean-American elected official in the city.

 

Since 2010 she’s represented District 6, which includes Civic Center, Downtown, and Mission Bay.

 

She sat down for a conversation with us, and explained why she believes she should be the city’s next mayor.

Today is the last day Californians can register to vote for the next election. Election Day is Tuesday, June 5th. And in San Francisco, as you probably know, we’re electing a new mayor.
