Friends, 

In the last few weeks, I’ve had time to reflect on my campaign for District Attorney that began well over a year ago. Looking back over those 14 months spent in the company of passionate activists, brilliant colleagues, community members who wanted to share their stories, and our tireless grassroots supporters, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.

I’m very proud of what we accomplished together, and though this isn’t the outcome we all worked so hard for, the work didn’t end on election night. I care deeply about building a criminal justice system where everyone feels safe and gets justice. I’ll keep fighting for that, and I know you will too.

I’m grateful that we stayed positive and envisioned a city that is more safe and less divided.

I’m grateful for the tens of thousands of San Franciscans who supported our vision — who demanded that our city work more effectively together to build safety and justice.

And most of all, I’m grateful for all of you — this team stepped up in ways big and small that I’ll never forget. 

From my friends who had never knocked on a door before, to the folks who woke up at 5am for our Election Day lit drop, this campaign was a labor of love. 

And it was 100% powered by you. 

I remain committed to a vision for this City that rejects the conventional wisdom that we must choose between safety and justice. 

Working together, I know this team will make that vision a reality. 

Thank you for everything, 

Suzy
