In November, Aaron Peskin was once again elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, which he served on from 2001 to 2009. Peskin, who represents North Beach and Chinatown, has already announced plans to try to expand the city's rent control law. A political foe of Mayor Ed Lee, Peskin is expected to continue in that role as a leader of the Board's new progressive majority. We'll talk to Peskin about the city's housing crisis, the controversial proposed Warriors arena and other big issues facing the city in 2016.
