My occupation is San Francisco City Attorney.
My qualifications are:
Growing up in an immigrant family, I witnessed the importance of the fight for justice, which inspired me to become a lawyer. That fight has shaped my public service career — as law clerk to a Ninth Circuit judge, civil rights attorney, criminal prosecutor, Counsel to the US Senate Constitution Subcommittee, and President of the Board of Supervisors.
As a California Assemblymember, I enacted groundbreaking laws to prevent tenant evictions, build affordable housing, combat climate change, protect LGBTQ+, immigrant and reproductive rights, and tackle anti-Asian hate, while successfully taking on Wall Street banks, pharmaceutical companies and gun manufacturers.
Since becoming your City Attorney, our Office has delivered millions of dollars to workers denied healthcare and sick leave, won $123M for school funding, pursued rogue COVID testing companies, confronted environmental polluters, and defended immigrant families at the US Supreme Court.
Building on the tradition of the City Attorney’s Office, I will use the law to address our housing and homelessness crisis, fight for our civil rights, keep our communities safe, stand up for consumers and workers, hold corporations accountable, and root out corruption.
