Proposition I: Mission District Housing Moratorium

Proposition I would block the construction, demolition or conversion of nearly all new, unpermitted market-rate housing in the Mission District for 18 months, giving city officials and community groups time to create a long-term plan for helping low- to middle-income people who live in the neighborhood. Projects for 100 percent affordable housing would not be affected.

Candidates: Mayor

Mayor Ed Lee is running for a second four-year term without any prominent, powerful or well-financed opposition. But five eclectic challengers hope the city’s ranked-choice ballot will deliver a surprise victory to one of them.

Candidates: District 3 Supervisor

District 3 supervisorial seat on Nov. 3: incumbent Julie Christensen, former supervisor Aaron Peskin and Chinatown organizer Wilma Pang. Who are they and what are their priorities?

Candidates: Sheriff

Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is facing two challengers in his bid for re-election: Vicki Hennessy, who spent three decades in the department and served as interim sheriff in 2012 (after Mayor Ed Lee suspended Mirkarimi over a domestic-violence case involving the new sheriff and his wife) and John Robinson, a retired sheriff’s commander.

Candidates: Uncontested Races

Three of the city’s top officials are running unopposed in November: District Attorney George Gascón, City Attorney Dennis Herrera and Treasurer José Cisneros.
