Supe Bevan Dufty and Mayor Newsom switch aides

A bit of musical chairs is being played out at City Hall as out District 8 Supervisor Bevan Dufty and Mayor Gavin Newsom are swapping aides with one another.

The mayor has rehired former staffer Nicolas King, who is straight, to be his policy adviser on criminal justice. King had worked as a policy associate in the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice prior to joining Dufty’s staff as one of two aides to the supervisor in 2008.

“It’s a great move, I’m happy for him and feel he’s rounded out his city experience working with me,” wrote Dufty in an email to the Bay Area Reporter, “and he will be a great asset for” the mayor and Police Chief George Gascon.

Replacing King in Dufty’s office will be Alex Randolph, (pictured at right) who was Dufty’s campaign manager during his re-election bid four years ago. Following that stint Randolph, a gay man, went to work for Newsom as his liaison to both District 8 and the LGBT community.

Newsom fired Randolph along with several other staffers in December as part of a cost-cutting move. Randolph’s first day working for Dufty will be March 1.

“I am extremely pleased that Alex will be with me as I finish my term and it’s been great knowing how loved Alex is by D8 and LGBT Community members who have enjoyed working with him in the Mayor’s office for the past two years,” wrote Dufty.
