Dufty, Campos given leadership posts

Openly gay District 8 Supervisor Bevan Dufty may have bowed out of the running to be board president this year, but that doesn’t mean he will be resting on his laurels. This week he took over as chair of the SF County Transportation Authority.

The body, comprised of the 11 members of the board, administers and oversees the delivery of the Proposition K half-cent local transportation sales tax program. Dufty had been vice-chair of the oversight panel.

He was also named chair of the board’s City Operations and Neighborhood Services Committee by new board President David Chiu, the supervisor from District 3. The proud father of a 2-year-old, Dufty will also serve as vice chair of the board’s City and School District Committee.

And Dufty will also serve as a temporary member of the board’s Budget and Finance Committee, which will be tasked with reviewing proposals to deal with the city’s $460 million budget deficit.

Also given a temporary post to the budget panel is openly gay District 9 Supervisor David Campos. They will join the panel March 1.

Campos, a former police commissioner, is also chair of the board’s Public Safety Committee and will likely play a large role in the city’s search for a new police chief to replace outgoing Chief Heather Fong, who announced she will retire this spring.
