Four Board of Supervisors Incumbents Up for Re-Election Beat Out Competition

Four members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors up for re-election appear to have beat out their competition to hold on to their spots on the 11-member board, according to complete unofficial election results.

Supervisors Mark Farrell, Jane Kim, Scott Wiener and Malia Cohen all appear to have won their races.

Farrell received roughly 80 percent voter approval compared to 20 percent for District 2 challenger Juan-Antonio Carballo, Kim received about 67 percent of the votes against three District 6 challengers, Wiener roughly 77 percent against four District 8 challengers, and Cohen about 45 percent voter approval, defeating District 10 econd-place finisher Tony Kelly and three others.

Supervisor Katy Tang was also up for re-election and ran uncontested.

As of late Tuesday night, Supervisor David Chiu was leading the race against Supervisor David Campos for a seat in the state assembly.

Either Campos or Chiu will head to Sacramento following the final result of the election, leaving a vacancy on the Board of Supervisors that will be appointed by Mayor Ed Lee.
