City Council District 13: Election Hangover
Run-Off Set For May: O'Farrell vs Choi

The May 21 run-off will pit the candidate with the most experience working in the varied communities of the district, Mitch O'Farrell, against the candidate with the most special interest money behind him, John Choi.
O'Farrell finished on top of the pack of 12 candidates in the race.  However, Choi wins the race for the most egregious use of campaign direct mail.  Over the past few weeks we received 21 pieces of Choi direct mail (including 3 in one day) as opposed to 5 pieces of O'Farrell mail.  At least Choi featured a large recycle bin in on one of his mailers, in case you didn't know where to toss them.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)
