Jane Kim is a current San Francisco Supervisor and candidate for State Senate, District 11. Jane is a proven progressive leader who has fought to expand access to affordable housing, protect renters, close the income gap and improve public schools.
Jane understands that the major challenges we face are not just local issues – they are statewide and even national issues and require support at the broadest levels.
As a Supervisor, Jane Kim works on issues important to our communities, striving to make District 6 healthier, safer and stronger. During her first term, Jane led efforts to establish the police substation on 6th Street, transform Boeddeker Park into a beautiful, brand new park, implement the city’s Vision Zero policy to protect pedestrians and cyclists, add critical medical and mental health staff to homeless shelters and pass CEQA reforms to give our community greater input in development decisions. And Jane has been a leading voice to close the income gap, authoring the ballot measure to increase San Francisco’s minimum wage to $15/hour. This is the most progressive wage increase in the country and was passed overwhelmingly in November 2014.
