Building Consensus, Getting Results

Dear Friends,

I am proud of the reputation I’ve earned as an independent voice and a bridge-builder that gets results. 

Over the past eight years, I have run two positive and overwhelmingly successful campaigns for the San Francisco Board of Education.  Both times, San Francisco’s major print media acknowledged my leadership style.

SF Examiner 2004 endorsement:

“Yee would be a strong advocate... He has said he wants to build consensus on the school board, and bring it to a middle ground instead of polarities.”

SF Chronicle 2008 endorsement:

“Yee is …credited with helping to calm the once-fractious board. He is a reasonable, capable listener, no small thing in a world driven with special interests, frequent crises and strong personalities.” 

When I declared my candidacy for District 7 Supervisor, all of my colleagues on the Board of Education endorsed my campaign, as have the majority of the Board of Supervisors.

I am running for the Board of Supervisors to grow San Francisco’s economy, promote healthy neighborhoods, and return fiscal accountability to City Hall.

Most importantly, I plan to bring my same leadership style that worked on the Board of Education into City Hall.  As your District 7 Supervisor, I will continue listening to my constituents, building bridges among my colleagues and getting results.

Yours truly,
