D8 Supe Dufty goes public with new beau

District 8 Supervisor Bevan Dufty went public about his new beau during a Castro fundraiser last weekend for his 2011 mayoral bid.

For the last two months the single father has been dating Castro resident and Realtor Pat Patricelli (pictured at right). The two met the morning after Halloween.

“I was sweeping up broken glass outside Moby at 5:30 in the morning when he walked by with his dog, Luna,” Dufty told the Bay Area Reporter. “He said he was impressed at seeing his supervisor cleaning the streets. I told him I was also impressed.”

Patricelli is a “top producer” with Herth Real Estate in the Castro. According to his broker profile, his “background extends not only as a Real Estate Salesperson, but as a client as well. I have spent many years on both the buying and selling side of the business.”

It being a political romance, the relationship may cause some eyebrows to be raised. Last year Herth found itself entangled in a public spate with a gay couple who accused the agency’s owner, Larry Stebbins, of forcing them out of their home. The dispute led to protests outside Herth’s Castro Street offices, as reported in a B.A.R. story at the time.

More recently, Dufty has been accused of being in the pocket of landlords for voting against legislation that would boost protections for renters in non-rent-controlled apartments. The Bay Guardian said Dufty “lost the tenant vote” in the mayor’s race due to his stance.

His dating a real estate agent is sure to set tongues wagging even more among tenants’ rights advocates.
