Election Results 2011: LGBT Candidates

  • Supervisor Bevan Dufty is in 7th place in a 16 candidate race for San Francisco Mayor. It’s a ranked choice election, so while his chances are very slim, he’s still in the race.

  • Mayor Annise Parker was re-elected without a runoff election, giving her nearly 51% of the vote in a general election where she faced  5 opponents.  Parker, an out lesbian, was first elected in 2009 and will be able to run for one more 2-year term in 2013.

I want to say thanks for commenting. I don’t think people say ‘thanks’ often enough and I know that it’s a big step to go from “lurker” to “participant”. It means a lot to me that you decided to take the time to comment on a post, and join the conversation here. I think we have a great community and your presence can only make it stronger.
