New Sheriff in Town

Earlier this month, my friends Luna Shad, Mehran, and I went to see San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi in his office in San Francisco’s City Hall. Ross (Rostam) is running for Sheriff in the upcoming November 2011 election. Though he enjoys a lot of important endorsements, including the current San Francisco Sheriff, Mike Hennessey, and the that of the Democratic Party, the competition is tight and tough. Ross has called San Francisco home for 27 years. A graduate of San Francisco’s Police Academy, Ross served nine years as an armed San Francisco District Attorney Investigator. Elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2004, he served twice as Chair of the Public Safety Committee and passed landmark community policing, police reform and re-entry legislation. Ross lives in the Western Addition with his wife, Eliana Lopez and their 2-year old son. See campaign video clip for Ross’ campaign. This is the website for his campaign: Ross Mirkarimi for Sheriff headquarters is located at: 219 Seventh Street at Howard, San Francisco, CA 94103; contact phone number: 415-690-8781
