It’s confusing… what do you do when there isn’t a polarizing character in the San Francisco Mayor’s race? Incumbent Mayor Ed Lee is widely considered to be the front-runner. He’s a competent manager with a disarming mustache and many years of experience in city government. He has also brought openness and a sense of humor to the office. However, he has a serious problem keeping his promises, some of his supporters have been accused of election fraud, and most agree that he takes direction from Willie Brown and Chinatown powerbroker Rose Pak. But he’s no wine mogul who sleeps with his employees, marries B-list actresses and hates the little people. Ahem. That said, there are several better candidates for Mayor in this race, so why settle for Mr. Not-a-Douche?
