There are milestones on a campaign that you always remember. Opening a campaign office is one of them.
Having an office makes this campaign feel so much more official. We kicked off our citywide grassroots campaign with more than 175 people––who, by the way, chose to spend time at the office on a beautiful Saturday morning––and signed up 65 volunteers for activities in the next six weeks!
Mayor London Breed, Senator Scott Wiener, Assemblymember David Chiu, Board of Equalization Chairwoman Malia Cohen, Board President Norman Yee, Supervisors Rafael Mandelman, Ahsha Safai, and Gordon Mar all showed up for us and I think shows that Suzy is the right leader for this moment. She is the only person who can bring people from all across our city together in one room.
This is first time in 109 years there is an open seat for District Attorney. That’s a big deal and I think we have an opportunity to change how we do politics when it comes to electing our criminal justice leaders.
Our campaign is going door to door because we know we can change the criminal justice system by working together, having honest conversations about how we are falling short, proposing bold and innovate solutions that will positively impact people, and commit to the idea that our City is capable of delivering both safety and justice.
Suzy plans to change the way our criminal justice system interacts with our communities by creating partnerships across education, public health, and other systems that can help prevent people from decisions that bring them to the criminal justice system in the first place. She is grounded in and accountable to our community; her love for San Francisco and raising her family here is why she got involved in the first place.
She is running her campaign by being active and responsive in the community, including holding listening sessions throughout the City.
We believe to make real reform we have to be more accountable to people in San Francisco.
