David Chiu, Aaron Peskin represent

    Gary Meyer of the Balboa is at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Here is the second of his reports. What a day! They’ve moved things around. Problems with my accreditation badge mean I can’t get into the movies. Offices that used to be in the Palais are at the other end of the Croisette, a 20 minute walk. The lines are huge and don’t seem to move. Finally I get my problems cleared up but every screening is full. Even my friends connected with some movies can’t get me in. The day is almost over and I haven’t seen one film yet. BUZZZZ. “Good morning. This is your 7am wake up call.

    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.
