Ed Lee & the Mayor’s Race …

by on September 8, 2011

To the Editor:

According to an August 14-16 poll, Ed Lee gets about 29 to 30 percent, the undecideds get about 28 percent, while the rest of the field poll at 7 percent or less. Yes, Lee still leads the race even after most of the other candidates have continually criticized him since he joined the race. At most this strategy moved some voters from Lee to the “undecideds,” not to another candidate. Maybe it’s time for the other candidates to start focusing on the issues facing San Francisco, rather than counting on ranked-choice voting to give them the office. Unless one of the other candidates catches fire in the coming weeks, it still appears to be Lee’s race to lose.

I’m new to the area, and so far unemployed. I’m so glad I found this website and its articles, like this one, very balanced, in my humble opinion!
