Web Exclusive: SF mayoral candidate Bevan Dufty
It’s autumn again, and that can mean the start of a variety of seasons: school, football, and television. But for the more civically-minded, fall means election season. Here in San Francisco, autumn is bringing the city’s first ranked-choice mayoral race to voters, and KALW News is talking with all 16 of the would-be mayors, including former supervisor Bevan Dufty.
Dufty boasts nearly 20 years of political experience, eight of which was served as a San Francisco city supervisor representing the Castro, Twin Peaks, Noe Valley, Duboce Triangle, and Glen Park districts. And now, capping two decades of public service, Dufty is running for mayor of San Francisco.
KALW’s Ben Trefny sat down with Dufty to discuss his platform, including what Dufty calls a “black agenda.” In this extended interview, the former supervisor elaborates on his views on education and raising a family in San Francisco, as well as his top three priorities for the city.
This is the seventh of KALW News’ San Francisco mayoral candidate interviews. Find all of the candidate Q&As here.
