Candidate Name: Francis Tsang

I am running for the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee (DCCC) to make sure the San Francisco Democratic Party remains an inclusive body that represents our diverse residents and communities. I am the only Asian American incumbent running in Assembly District 17, and one of the youngest DCCC members. As a native San Franciscan and lifelong Democrat, who has received the Volunteer of the Year award in 2008 from the California Democratic Party, I was truly honored to be appointed to the DCCC.

For the last year, I have been working hard to register new Democrats, pass policies that strengthen the values of our Party, and support Democrats in City Hall, Sacramento and Washington, D.C. I am running for reelection because I want to continue the great work we have done together, and continue to engage our Democrats on issues that affect our City.

We are living in a truly controversial time. Our City is facing a housing affordability crisis, a growing homelessness population, and other challenges of a growing, successful San Francisco. As a member of the DCCC, and as a person who has work in public service for the last 10 years for the Mayors Office, working for both Gavin Newsom and Ed Lee, I work hard for our communities and diverse neighborhoods, and I want to continue to push for real solutions more innovative and coordinated strategies to address the homeless crisis, including expanding the successful Navigation Center, moving forward with progressive approaches on mental health, and bringing more resources to help our homeless population living on our streets. I want to address the housing crisis by continuing to build housing at all ends of the economic spectrum so that San Francisco can remain a city for everyone. I want to make sure families thrive in our City and our youth grow up with pride in their San Francisco.

We must all work together to push our City forward and accomplish what must be done. I would be so honored to have the endorsement of the Noe Valley Democratic Club.
