SF mayoral candidates forum set for Monday

October 24, 2003

Photo of the San Francisco skyline at nightWhat are the pressing issues in the San Francisco mayoral race? Homelessness? Police reform? Education?

With less than two weeks until the Nov. 4 municipal elections and with so much attention devoted to the recent California gubernatorial recall, many voters are unfamiliar with the city's nine mayoral candidates and their positions on the issues.

Learn about the candidates' platforms and ask questions during a forum from noon to 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27, at Jack Adams Hall in the Cesar Chavez Student Center. Admission is free and open to the public.

This will be one of the few forums in the city to include all nine candidates.

Each candidate will have 20 minutes to make opening remarks and answer questions from the audience. The candidates will appear as follows:

  • Noon: Tom Ammiano, member, San Francisco Board of Supervisors
  • 12:20 p.m.: Angela Alioto, civil rights attorney
  • 12:40 p.m.: Jim Reid, builder
  • 1 p.m.: Tony Ribera, educator and public administrator
  • 1:20 p.m.: Gavin Newsom, member, San Francisco Board of Supervisors
  • 1:40 p.m.: Matt Gonzalez, president, San Francisco Board of Supervisors
  • 2 p.m.: Michael Denny, company president
  • 2:20 p.m.: Roger Schulke, computer company executive
  • 2:40 p.m.: Susan Leal, San Francisco treasurer

Unless one candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, there will be a runoff election Dec. 9 between the two candidates who received the most votes Nov. 4.

The forum is sponsored by the Golden Gate [X]Press and the Society of Professional Journalists. The event also will be Webcast live on the Golden Gate [X]press Web site.
