BABJA to host Q&A with San Francisco District Attorney Candidates – Davey D to moderate – Wed., 10/30

Considering that hate-filled anti-Chesa Boudin mailers from the SF Police Officers Association (POA) are being placed in voters’ mailboxes on Oct. 29, a week before the election, it will be important to ask the other candidates whether they support the POA. The mailer is headlined on the front, “These criminals know who they’re supporting for District Attorney …” and on the back, “Chesa Boudin: The #1 Choice of Criminals and Gang Members!” The Bay View is proud to endorse Chesa Boudin.

The Bay Area Black Journalists Association is hosting a Q&A at the Impact Hub in San Francisco on Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. All four candidates, Chesa Boudin, Leif Dautch, Suzy Loftus and Nancy Tung will participate in a one-on-one format, moderated by KPFA radio host and journalist Davey D Cook.

This particular race is especially important as the outcome could change the criminal justice landscape in San Francisco. The open forum is the last time undecided voters will have the opportunity to hear each candidate address issues that concern the community.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 5.
