The race for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is already getting underway.
Five of the 11 seats on the board are up for grabs this November and in District 10, which runs from Potrero Hill to Visitacion Valley, the first campaign office opened yesterday.
Shamann Walton's campaign office opening was a star-studded event -- that is, if you're into San Francisco Politics.
Supervisor Aaron Peskin, Mayor elect London Breed, and Public Defender Jeff Adachi were all there, just to name a few.
Walton says he's gotten support from elected officials across the political spectrum because he works with people across that spectrum.
"I am a fierce fighter with progressive values," Walton said. "You're not gonna get me to claim a camp, because that's not me."
Some major points of debate throughout the campaign will likely be how to prevent displacement in the district, which is increasingly becoming a target for developers, as well as the botched radiation cleanup in Hunter's Point.
While displacement is a newer issue for parts of District 10, Hillary Ronen, supervisor for District 9 who's not up for re-election, says it's a problem many districts face.
"What we're finding in San Francisco is that all but the ultra wealthy are getting pushed out of their communities," Ronen said.
Displacement will likely be an issue in several races this fall.
