A heartfelt thank you for the opportunity to serve

After last night, I wanted to send a quick note to say a heartfelt thank you.  Because of your support, I will be headed back to our State Capitol to keep fighting for San Franciscans and Californians.

From keeping our families safe and healthy during COVID-19, to addressing economic instability and inequality, to tackling our affordable housing and homelessness crisis, to protecting our civil rights, our environment and our schools — we have so much important work ahead of us.

It has been the honor of my life to fight alongside and for you, and I’m looking forward to getting back to work in Sacramento.

I also want to acknowledge that while our race has been called, there are many critical races that have not been.  And because of the nature of this election — with so many mail-in ballots, and such sky-high voter participation — it may take days, if not weeks, until key races are resolved.

It’s important that we all remain calm, patient, and optimistic as votes are tallied across our city, state and country.

As we wait for votes to be counted, you can follow a live election tracker from the New York Times. For data-driven information about the election landscape and links to many other resources, check out the US Elections Project.

In California, you can track your ballot here or see statewide election results when they are finalized on the California Secretary of State website. You can see San Francisco election results as they are published by clicking here.
Again, I’m profoundly thankful for the honor of representing you.

With deep gratitude,
