Supe Campos Officially Announces State Assembly Bid

San Francisco Supervisor David Campos is announcing today that he will run for state Assembly.

Campos, who represents San Francisco’s District 9, which includes the Mission, is seeking to replace Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who is being termed out of office next year.

If Campos wins the seat, it would be the second time he followed in the footsteps of Ammiano, who served as District 9 supervisor before being elected to the state Assembly in 2008.

Campos immigrated to the U.S. from Guatemala as a 14-year-old and graduated from Stanford University and Harvard Law School before entering public service, first as a San Francisco deputy city attorney in 1999, then as a police commissioner before being elected supervisor in 2008.

Campos is announcing his candidacy this morning by meeting with supporters at 11 a.m. and 24th and Mission streets and then taking a Muni bus to City Hall to file his paperwork.

    Why did he run for “re election” in 2010 promising people he’d do all sorts of stuff when he KNEW he was running for another office? Heck his own campaign people admitted to the SF Weekly that they were just using it to build name ID even though he had no real opposition. Just what we need in Sacramento, another useless politician only out to enrich themselves at the public trough.
