Veteran civic leader Linda Richardson
Bayview community leader Linda Richardson has announced her candidacy for a seat on the Democratic County Central Committee, 13th Assembly District.
“I have worked for years and at every level to improve the lives of the residents of Bayview-Hunters Point, enhance the quality of life for San Franciscans, and to get Democrats elected,” Ms. Richardson said.
“It is crucial that this part of San Francisco receive energized, effective representation in the political arena, and for a dependable voice to be elected to the DCCC. I want to elevate the discussions within the Democratic Party on Affordable Healthcare, Education, the Environment, Economy, Green Energy and Human Rights.”
A former President of the Civil Service Commission and former member of the San Francisco Planning Commission, Ms. Richardson led negotiations that resulted in the historic 1998 agreement to close the Hunters Point power plant.
Ms. Richardson remains a tireless advocate on behalf of the Southeast neighborhood community where she has worked on issues ranging from environmental justice, education, health, land use and community revitalization. Having held numerous positions in city government, she is currently a member of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.
A number of leading media, community organizations and elected officials in San Francisco have endorsed Ms. Richardson’s candidacy for the DCCC, including the Bay Area Reporter, Asian Week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mayor Gavin Newsom, City Attorney Dennis Herrera, Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, Supervisor Bevan Dufty, Treasurer Jose Cisneros, Dr. Anita Grier, the SF Labor Council, SF Young Democrats, Raoul Wallenberg Jewish Democratic Club, Asian Pacific Islander Democratic Club, SF Women’s Political Committee, African American Democratic Club, Irish American Democratic Club, Chinese American Democratic Club, Black Women for Political Action, National Women’s Political Caucus (SF), City Democratic Club, and FDR Democratic Club ( for Seniors and the Disabled).
