Two interesting candidates are vying to represent District 7, one of the city’s most dynamic collection of neighborhoods. The district confronts challenges ranging from homeless encampments and city neglect to opportunities for large developments that will reshape its landscape.
Outspoken attorney Tam Nguyen would stir things up. And while that’s not always a bad thing, we prefer the steady hand of Maya Esparza.
She has spent a lifetime in the communities she would represent, and much of her career has been spent working for socially relevant non-profits. We believe that the combination of skills and knowledge that Esparza would bring to the City Council would serve residents of District 7 well.
