SF District 8 supe candidates host weekend events

Several District 8 supervisor candidates will be busy this weekend in San Francisco as they hold events to drum up interest and support in their races.

Even though he declared hisĀ  candidacy in the race a year and a half ago, and pulled papers to begin raising money last July, deputy city attorney Scott Wiener this Saturday will officially kickoff his campaign to succeed Supervisor Bevan Dufty on the Board of Supervisors.

Wiener, who added Supervisor Carmen Chu and Carol Yenne, a Noe Valley business leader, to his list of endorsers this week, is inviting supporters to join him from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 24 at the George Christopher Playground in Diamond Heights to the right of the Safeway shopping center.

To reward people for getting up early on the weekend, Wiener is providing coffee, bagels and fruit as well as some bold-faced names, such as state Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco), who once held the D8 seat, and Mayor Gavin Newsom.

There will also be crafts and activities for kids, and information on upcoming volunteer opportunities to help Wiener in his supervisorial bid.

The following day assistant District Attorney Rebecca Prozan is organizing another carrotmob event to help a D8 business. Just days before officially entering the race, Prozan held a similar event at a coffee shop in Noe Valley.

This time she is asking supporters to dine at the Duboce Park Cafe. The eatery has pledged to spend 50 percent of its profits during the hours of 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 25 toward greening its business.

The cafe is located at 2 Sanchez Street across from Duboce Park.
