Letters to the Editor
Sheehy an excellent choice for supe
I want to say thank you to Mayor Ed Lee for appointing and congratulations to Jeff Sheehy on becoming District 8 supervisor.
Sheehy is an excellent choice to replace Scott Wiener. He's a smart, common sense, independent person who has our community's back.
Sheehy fought to get the city to enact the Equal Benefits Ordinance, which requires companies doing business with the city to offer same-sex couples the same benefits as married couples.
As Mayor Gavin Newsom's HIV/AIDS adviser, he fought to fill gaps in funding and get treatment for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
Sheehy is a fighter and we all need to get behind and support him.
As a resident of Glen Park, he will represent all of District 8 and, I believe, all of San Francisco as well.
