Sarah Phelan reports:
A nice turnout for David Chiu’s party at Broadway Suites, opposite Showgirls, next to Crow Bar near Chinatown – definitely the stripper area: Will David be taking it off?
Chiu was pretty happy because he said he ran “the most grassroots campaign — against one of the mnost moneyed campaigns in San Francisco history.”
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, he had 40% of the vote.
Current D3 supe Aaron Peskin came on stage and announced, “Let me introduce next supe for D3: David Chiu!”
And Chiu responded, “This is completely overwhelming, beautiful day.”
He may be the first Chinese American to represent Chinatown.
