Phil Ting is best known as the “tax man” of San Francisco – more formally known as the assessor-recorder. And now, he’s running for mayor.

KALW’s Ben Trefny sat down with Ting in the studio for an on-air interview, but in this web-exclusive conversation, Ting elaborates on his thoughts about Muni reform, San Francisco’s emerging business relations with China, accountability of city government, and the city’s Chinese American political power in San Francisco.

This is the fourth of KALW News’ San Francisco mayoral candidate interviews. Find all of the candidate Q&As here.
