Supervisor Chris Daly picked up his mayoral nomination papers late yesterday afternoon, according to the San Francisco Department of Elections. (And frankly, thank God! We're so bored with covering this mayor's race that we're actually hounding the poor elections staff to see who kinda maybe sorta might want to be our Mayor.)
Now all Supervisor Daly has to do to take on The Gav is file his paperwork in time. That means getting a minimum of 20 signatures from registered San Francisco voters, forking over the filing fee of $3,776, and filling out the required paperwork, including a declaration of candidacy.
Giannina Miranda, the executive assistant for the Department of Elections, says that as of Thursday at about noon, only four of the 31 candidates have actually filed all of their required paperwork.
