Ma throws support to Prozan in D8 supe race

Assemblywoman Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco) has thrown her support to District 8 supervisor candidate Rebecca Prozan (left in photo). The powerful Sacramento lawmaker – she serves as speaker pro tempore in the Legislature’s lower body – had been supporting Laura Spanjian in the race until Spanjian ended her bid this spring to take a job with the city of Houston.

In an email sent out by Prozan’s campaign announcing the endorsement, Ma pointed to the candidate’s ability to tackle neighborhood issues as for why she picked her over her main opponents in the race: local attorney Rafael Mandelman and deputy city attorney Scott Wiener.

Prior to becoming an assistant district attorney, Prozan worked for former Mayor Willie Brown in his Office of Neighborhood Services and briefly was a legislative aide to Supervisor Bevan Dufty, the current holder of the District 8 seat who is termed out this year.

“Rebecca Prozan is an independent leader who has proven time and again that she is the candidate who gets things done,” stated Ma.  “She is putting forward solutions to help small businesses, families, and transportation.”

For those keeping count, Prozan has half of the city’s 4-person legislative caucus backing her in the supervisor race. Senator Leland Yee had already endorsed her in the race.

Senator Mark Leno is supporting Wiener while Assemblyman Tom Ammiano is backing Mandelman.
