Every day it seems like there's another name to add to the list of potential candidates thinking about running for the supervisor seat in District 10 (Bayview-Hunters Point, Potrero Hill). Well, today you can take one person's name off that list: Former State Sen. Carole Migden.

Migden tells SF Weekly that she's going to step aside and let a new generation of politicos compete for the seat being vacated by termed-out Supervisor Sophie Maxwell. "I'm more in a position of wishing them well and allowing them to proceed," Migden said.

Migden's name surfaced earlier this year as a potential candidate after she lost her senate seat to Mark Leno. Migden, who would have had to move into the district to run, said after giving the possibility some thought, she decided that the prospect of campaigning wasn't appealing.

"I don't envision this as a fit for me in the New Year," she said, adding, "I like where I live ... I have a good life."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
