Ahsha Safaí, District 11 Supervisorial Candidate, today announced the collection of over 2,500 nomination signatures supporting his run for Supervisor.
The Department of Election requires 1,000 petition signatures in lieu of a nomination filing fee. The 2,500 signatures collected well exceed the Department of Elections threshold and signifies strong support for Safaí’s candidacy.

“As of today, I have officially qualified as a candidate for District 11 Supervisor on November’s ballot. I would like to thank all my supporters who reached out to the community and found so many voters eager to support my run for Supervisor. This was grassroots organizing at its best.”
Safaí continued, “As Supervisor, I will continue to fight for our fair share of resources. Under my leadership we will no longer be treated like the forgotten part of San Francisco.”
Safaí went on to outline his platform for change in District 11, including increased community policing, better parks and afterschool programs for children, and improving the quality of life of all District 11 residents.
He also detailed his fight for his signature issues: keeping essential emergency services at St. Luke’s Hospital, continuing to revitalize and expand the neighborhood park system and preserving the JROTC program, which has enriched the public education of countless youth for some ninety years.
This past week highlights some significant milestones for the Safaí campaign: the San Francisco Police Officers Association and Laborers Local 261 joined the Teamsters, SEIU Local 87 Janitors Union, and District Council 16 – the Painters and Allied Trades in officially endorsing Safaí for Supervisor.
