District 6

The venerable 6th District is a curious one, encompassing the South of Market region, Civic Center area, the Tenderloin, and China Basin — along with Treasure Island thrown in, probably on a dare. There was disappointment in learning the Farallon Islands are not also part of it, as I tend to poll well with sea lions. That aside, given its broad coverage of the most densely populated areas of the City, it is a very diverse district, filled with interesting places, great history, and endless character. Below is a map of the district. To learn if you are in the district, search your home by rolling over the map, zooming in for a clearer view, or download the map here — the bold numbers on the map are precincts. If you are a resident of the district, I hope to earn your vote. If you are not a resident of the district, remember that members of the Board of Supervisors make decisions impacting the whole City, so my intent is earning support from all San Francisco residents.

District Roots

As a teen, when first arriving at our airport, I quickly learned it wasn't actually in the City proper, while also learning BART had yet to reach the airport. I hopped into a cab, asking my driver to "take me to the cheapest hotel in San Francisco!" This could have ended badly, and in a way, it did. He promptly took me to... the Ramada Plaza International at Fisherman's Wharf. Ignorant of concepts like "hostels" or "residential hotels", I blew through quite a bit of my limited funds in my first few days in the City, prior to enlightenment. Landing shortly afterward at the former Grand Central Hostel on Market Street, I have called this district my home, though with a few brief stints elsewhere. I came into adulthood in this district, living in my current home since January of 2005.
