Fighting for Progress
Why I'm Running
Since my election to the Legislature in 2014, I have been fighting hard for San Francisco and California — to create affordable housing, improve our schools, protect our environment, defend our civil rights, and so much more. I’m honored to represent the 17th Assembly District, and hope you’ll join my 2020 re-election campaign. Let’s move forward together!

Terrence showed how we could fight crime and still be true to our progressive values. A fierce advocate for civil rights, he dedicated his life to serving the public, as a lawyer, a member of the Board of Supervisors, and as District Attorney. My sympathies go out to his family and loved ones. [id] => 20006038080_10158161503123081 ) ) 1579310890
