Here’s your Aaron Peskin running hard, once again, for Supe of District Three:
As you can see, Aaron has a posse.
Have you seen the polling? The thing is that gaffe-prone Julie Christensen, the Sarah Palin of SF politics, still has a few more months to introduce herself to her constituents and we still don’t know what kind of effect the “uncoordinated” and inevitable Ron Conway-type money-dump against Aaron will have.
Now let’s hear from Julie, the unknown redshirt, the redshirt freshman in her 60’s, you know, talking about economic classes, trying, you know, to give a shout-out to her temporary fiefdom:
“…both lower and upper and middle, middle upper, lower, you know, fisherman’s wharf, the financial district, the waterfront…”
I think, you know, that’s enough for now.
All right, place your bets:
“D3 is Rose Pak’s Chinatown district, and according to Rose, Julie Christensen “doesn’t know jack shit about Chinatown.”http://www.sfexaminer.com/sanf… She’s also facing former D3 supervisor Aaron Peskin, who can boast significantly greater name recognition.”
As you can see by clicking on the above link, JC is not the favorite in this race, oh well.
All right, play us out, Mssrs. Matier & Ross:
“San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee is dropping his affable smile when it comes to Aaron Peskin. The mayor grew a set of fangs last week, warning a collection of the city’s business, labor and tech leaders that there would be consequences if they help the former Board of Supervisors president’s bid to unseat Lee’s handpicked District Three incumbent in November, Supervisor Julie Christensen. “I am paying attention,” the mayor told the assembled guests at a closed-door meeting Tuesday at the Hanson Bridgett law offices, according to people who were there.”
And here’s the stinger:
“And tech investor Ron Conway, one of the mayor’s biggest backers, urged the business community to step up to the plate for Christensen — saying there would be a backlash if he and his tech friends wrote the checks for the mayor’s candidate.”
