Theresa Sparks will not be a San Francisco supervisor. Yet she has been named one of the year's top politicos for winning a seat on the Board of Supervisors. Say what?
Along with Alameda County Superior Court Judge Victoria Kolakowski, Sparks is named as one of The Advocate's 2010 "Newsmakers of the Year." But while Kolakowski did squeak out her race in the East Bay, Sparks came a distant third in the District 6 supervisorial race; she was not "elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors" as The Advocate advocates.
Sparks hasn't yet returned our calls. Hopefully The Advocate's honor won't be rescinded.
