David Lee runs for SF District 1 Supervisor

(Excerpts from Press Release)
David Lee, former Executive Director of the Chinese American Voter Education Committee (CAVEC), filed papers yesterday to run for District 1 Supervisor against embattled incumbent Eric Mar. Lee decided to run after talking with family, friends and, in particular, community leaders concerned about a leadership gap at City Hall on behalf of the Richmond.

“The Richmond simply doesn’t have a voice at City Hall that is answering the basic concerns and issues of our neighborhoods,” said Lee. “We need common sense leadership that focuses on policies that will actually fill our empty storefronts, spend our tax dollars wisely and protect our families.”

A native San Franciscan, Lee has spent the last twenty years living, working and serving the Richmond. Since 1992, he has served as Executive Director of the Chinese American Voter Education Committee (CAVEC), registering over 100,000 new Chinese voters across San Francisco.

Supervisor Eric Mar, who represents District 1 on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, released the following statement in response to David Lee’s filing to run against him:
“I am looking forward to having a dialogue with David and with all Richmond residents on how to best improve the quality of life in our district.  Over the last four years, I have always put the needs of the Richmond community first, and I will continue to do so during this campaign.  We are running a very strong campaign, and I feel confident about the depth of support we have in the community.”  -Supervisor Eric Mar
