Sullivan on Newsom’s endorsement:

SAN FRANCISCO – Mayor Gavin Newsom today endorsed Andrew Sullivan for

District 5 supervisor.

“Andrew is a proven leader with a great record of getting things done,” Mayor

Newsom said. “In 1999, I worked side by side with Andrew on Proposition E,

the Muni reform initiative. He stood firm for Muni riders in the face of tough

opposition from entrenched interests, and the result is better service for over

700,000 daily riders. A lot of people talk about government reform, but

Andrew has proven he can build coalitions for change.”

The Mayor continued, “Andrew also understands that we need to reform San

Francisco’s old, failed policies toward homelessness and quality-of-life issues.

He supports Care Not Cash, unlike many of his competitors, and he’s committed

to making it work. He’s also supporting Proposition A, the affordable housing

bond. His commitment and passion for improving San Francisco with practical

solutions is why Andrew Sullivan is my choice for Supervisor in District 5. I urge

all District 5 voters to make Andrew their first choice.”

Mayor Newsom described the 33-year-old Sullivan as “one of the best and

brightest of a new generation of leaders. If the citizens of District 5 want

someone who will stand up for clean streets, responsive government, and real

solutions, Andrew is a great choice this November.”

“I am deeply honored by the endorsement from Mayor Gavin Newsom,” said

Sullivan. “I’m a strong supporter of the Mayor and his efforts to improve the

quality of life in San Francisco. If elected, I’ll work hard with the Mayor and

the Board of Supervisors to improve this great city through better Muni service,

more housing opportunities, and cleaner streets.”
