What a few supporters and critics say about Jane


“Jane Kim has lead the fight for a $15 minimum wage in SF, for Free City College for all SF residents, has negotiated the highest rates of affordable housing in the country, and is currently working on Universal Early Childhood Education for children 0-4 years old.”
SF Berniecrats
“We need a mayor who will listen to our communities. Jane has been a great advocate for the city’s open spaces, parks and recreation facilities, and has always been an advocate for access and equity. She will bring us together as one city and provide opportunities for all of us to live in the city.”
SF API Commissioners and Leaders
“Jane Kim has a long history of actively supporting street safety projects in District 6, which she presently represents on the Board of Supervisors. She authored the City’s 2014 Vision Zero resolution. As chair of the SF County Transportation Authority’s Vision Zero Committee, she led the effort to institutionalize the Vision Zero approach to street safety and repeatedly held City departments accountable for implementing it.”
SF Bicycle Coalition (also endorses Mark Leno)


“In 2015, District Six generated more complaints about human waste, needles and broken glass than any other district in the city, a problem that only worsened the following year.”
SF Chronicle
“If you like me, vote for me — and the other candidate, too. That’s the message being beamed out by candidates Mark Leno and Jane Kim in the San Francisco mayoral race. The two are gaming the city’s ranked-choice election rules in an unprecedented way.”
SF Chronicle Editorial Board
“Jane Kim shamefully voted to put her political ally, a man convicted of domestic abuse against his own wife, back into a position of power as a chief law enforcement official.”
Andrea Shorter, former president of SF’s Commission on the Status of Women
