TIC Friendly Supervisor Candidates

It is no secret that the majority of presently elected San Francisco supervisors have aggressively legislated against TICs, under the misguided notion that TICs are detrimental to tenants. This in spite of the fact that the vast majority of tenants would like to someday become owners. It's simple political math - in a city where 70% of the voters are renters if you are a politician you need to come up with some galvanizing issue that appears to appease the tenant voting block. This election several supes are terming out and there is an opportunity to put more moderate legislators in City Hall. Non-partisan San Franciso organization Plan C, a supporter of pro-TIC and other urban quality-of-life legislation, favors these candidates:

District 1: Sue Lee
District 3: Joseph Alioto
District 4: Carmen Chu
District 7: Sean Elsbernd
District 9: Eva Royale
District 11: Ahsha Safai

Update: District Numbers in the list above corrected after the fact. Thank you for the comments.

I think you have your districts mixed up. Alioto is Plan C's District 3 endorsement.

Just want to point out that in District 9 Mark Sanchez is an actual TIC owner.
