Aaron Peskin, former President of the San Francisco City and County Board of Supervisors, said he thinks it would be best for San Francisco if either Supervisor John Avalos or Supervisor David Campos were elected Board President, to help moderate the "extremely conservative, pro-business, pro-Wall Street policies coming from the mayor's administration."
