BOMA San Francisco Members:
David Heller, the president of the Geary Boulevard Merchants & Property Owners Association, officially endorsed District 1 Supervisor Candidate David Lee at a press conference on October 16. As you may know, BOMA San Francisco's Political Action Committee has endorsed him as well.
“I believe David Lee is the best man for the supervisor job,” Heller said. “His top priorities will be to fill the 85 empty storefronts in the neighborhood and restore the Richmond District’s economic vitality. He’s the type of leadership our neighborhood needs.”
Heller cited his dissatisfaction with City Hall, the disappointing economic status of the Richmond, and Lee’s solid plan for the neighborhood as reasons for his endorsement.
David Heller is a longtime Richmond merchant who owns and operates SF Beauty Network, Inc. He has been the president of the Geary Boulevard Merchants & Property Owners Association since 1994.
“I am honored to have David’s support,” Lee said. “If we’re going to fill our empty storefronts and repair our roads, my office and the merchants association are going to have to work together. I am ready to work with the association and I think David’s endorsement is good step towards future collaborations.”
David Lee has served as the executive director of the Chinese American Voters Education Committee (CAVEC) since 1992. As a voting rights educator, he has helped register more than 100,000 voters in San Francisco. Outside his work at CAVEC, David has worked as a political science lecturer at San Francisco State University. He has also served as a Recreation and Parks commissioner and as a Richmond District Police Advisory Board co-chair.
David and his wife, Jing, are raising two children in the Richmond District, where they also own a small business.
