Latest District 8 candidate kicks off campaign Sunday

Voters in District 8 curious to meet the latest candidate looking to represent them in City Hall can do so this weekend.

Bill Hemenger, who quit his job in January at Oracle to jump into the race, will have his official campaign kick-off event this Sunday, February 28 at Castro bar Blackbird on Market Street. The event takes place from 1 to 3 p.m.

The candidate had his public debut this week at a candidate’s forum Monday night. As the Bay Area Reporter noted in its coverage of the debate, Hemenger is one of three largely unknown male candidates vying for the District 8 seat against four well-known gay or lesbian Democratic Party activists.

Unlike perenial candidate Starchild, a bisexual sex worker whose platform heralds laissez faire government, and James Boeger, who seems to be more of a political jokester than serious candidate, Hemenger wants to bring his business acumen to bear on running San Francisco.

He could use his corporate ties to give the quartet of more established candidates in the race a serious challenge for the seat. His opponents are sure to be clamoring to see what sort of fundraising prowess Hemenger has when the next campaign finance reports are due later this year.
