Gay San Francisco Supervisor David Campos to run for State Assembly

SAN FRANCISCO -- Gay District 9 Supervisor David Campos this week became the first person to officially declare his candidacy for San Francisco's state Assembly District 17 seat.

Joined by his partner of 17 years, Phil Hwang, whom he plans to marry this fall, Campos filed his paperwork with the secretary of state's office in Sacramento Wednesday, July 31. He will join with supporters in the Mission district Thursday, August 1, including youth for whom he helped secure free Muni passes, and ride a bus to City Hall to file with the city's elections department.

Campos's decision to seek the Assembly seat had long been expected. But only recently did he make up his mind, Campos, 42, told the Bay Area Reporter in an exclusive interview Monday.
