Jane Kim wins another 4 years

With only a handful of credible opponents, Jane Kim collected the lion’s share of the votes cast to win a second term representing District 6 on the Board of Supervisors. Kim received 6,121 votes to Jamie Whitaker’s 1,049 and Michael Nulty’s 1,032. Topping 50% in the initial count, ranked choice voting was unnecessary.

The race between Supervisors David Chiu and David Campos stands at 51%-48%, far too close to call with tens of thousands of votes uncounted. Department of Elections Director John Arntz said he expects to count all the ballots by next week.

One response to “Jane Kim wins another 4 years

    It’s become apparent that the term for a San Francisco Supervisor is really one 8-year term. Unseating an incumbent Supervisor is extremely difficult. I give the challengers in District 6 and 10, and the other districts, a lot of credit. All too often elected officials in City Hall simply run unopposed, as was the case with Supervisor Katy Tang in District 4 and the offices for Public Defender and Assessor-Recorder. There is something about that phenomenon that seems troubling and not very healthy in a democracy.

    That said, Supervisor Jane Kim and her staff have been quite responsive in addressing the issues we face living on the 400 block of Tehama Street. Sunny Angulo is extreme helpful; she puts in a very long day.
