D9 Supervisor David Campos files for re-election

Gay District 9 Supervisor David Campos pulled papers today (Tuesday, January 17) to run for re-election.

Business and labor leaders, as well as residents of his Mission-centered district, joined Campos at noon at City Hall to witness him turning in his forms at the Department of Elections office.

“I am proud of the work I have accomplished over the last four years,” stated Campos. “District 9 is one of the most culturally diverse areas of our city. I am honored to represent the District and look forward to earning a second term this November 6th.”

The move had been expected, as Campos told the Bay Area Reporter earlier this month that he planned to seek another four-year term.  He had been facing one opponent, Benjamin Castaneda, a 23-year-old, according to the city’s Ethics Commission. Castaneda told the B.A.R. he is bisexual and no longer intends to oppose Campos.

Helping Campos with his campaign will be the newly launched consulting firm of Durning, Santore & Davis, LLC. One of the firm’s founders, Tim Durning, has been a longtime leader of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club.

The other co-founders are Elaine Santore, who has covered local politics for several online sites, and political consultant Glenn Davis.

It is expected that Campos will easily win re-election to his board seat. And he is mentioned as a possible contender in 2014 to succeed gay state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), who will be termed out of his seat.
