I hope you have been doing well since the end of our intense and exhilarating grassroots election campaign. Thank you so much for all your support, work and positivity over the campaign!
Over the past two weeks, our campaign team has been closely monitoring the Department of Election's slow counting of tens of thousands of remaining absentee and provisional ballots. While the count is still not yet complete and the election results won't be officially certified until early December, our victory in the hard fought District 1 Board of Supervisors race is pretty much assured.
I am honored to have earned the first place vote of over 40% of District 1 voters, the highest of any non-incumbent Board of Supervisors candidate in any district. This strong showing in first place votes enabled me to maintain a lead and push me over 50% win threshold after the Department of Elections applied its preliminary "ranked-choice voting" run earlier this week.
Personally, I am still recovering from and reflecting on the grueling campaign as I'm sure we all are. And what better way to recover and reflect than celebrating with all of you? Please read on and come out to celebrate with our sisters and brothers in labor!
Thanks and solidarity,
