We need a legislator with real life experience to represent us in City Hall.

 

I'm Mike Murphy, a candidate for our Sunset/Parkside seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. I moved to San Francisco from Salamanca, NY (where I lived on the Seneca Nation Reservation) to be with my college sweetheart Kim in 1996. We married in 2000, lived in the Inner Sunset and in the Presidio for a couple of years before buying a home in the Outer Sunset in 2006. Our son Finn was born in SF in 2007. He attended Sunset Elementary and now is a 6th grade student at A.P. Giannini. In the City, I’ve worked as a gallery manager, as a program representative and instructor in the English Language Program at UC Berkeley Ext, as a building trades laborer, and, presently, as an Ecoliteracy teacher in SF Unified School District’s Early Education Program. We are future focused. I’ll bring that future focus and my life, work, and activism experience to the Board of Supervisors as your local legislator serving the Sunset and Parkside neighborhoods.

The Sunset and Parkside have been abandoned to City Hall political games for far too long. Political insiders have sold us out. Career-minded, go-along-to-get-along politicians have turned their backs on us to do the bidding of their big-money donors.

We deserve a real say in decisions that affect our lives, our families, our futures.

We deserve a real representative democracy that works, not one that wastes.

We can do better than trickle-down, top-down decisions made by a few select investors.

As your Supervisor, I’ll bring a lifetime of work experience—as a civil servant, educator, husband, and father—to the job.

I will work for you and for your family, for the good of the City—not for special interests.

 

 
 
  I’m humbled and honored to have the personal endorsement of George Wooding, President of the    Coalition for San Francisco Neighborhoods.     Like George and CSFN, I have fought and will continue to fight to protect our unique San Francisco neighborhoods.

Standing up for the Neighborhood

I’m an elected representative on the San Francisco Green Party County Council. The Green Party is an activist party and I’m proud to have their #1 endorsement. I’ve stood up and taken legal action against environmental degradation and pollution in our City. I’ve stood up and taken legal action against corruption in SF politics. I’ve stood up and taken legal action against bad development plans that threaten our neighborhoods and would speed up the gentrification cycle in what is now the most gentrified city in the US. I’ve stood up and taken legal action to protect our voting rights. I’ve never taken a dime for doing any of that work and never demanded a trophy for showing up.

We need to protect and preserve our rights as citizens. It’s the right thing to do. As your Supervisor, that’s exactly what I’ll do.

 
  I have solid positions on the issues that matter to us and put them out there in March of this year when I determined to stand for election against the incumbent Supervisor who resigned. Those positions and the fact that I had the courage and conviction to stand up with no ties to the establishment and no big money allegiances earned me endorsements from SF Berniecrats (#2) and San Francisco For Democracy (#1).    It's time we took the wheel. Let's take it back. Vote Mike Murphy for SF Board of Supervisors, District 4   paid for by Mike Murphy for District 4 Supervisor 2018.
