Are you thinking about the November, 2011 ballot already? We're right there with you. This is turning out to be another packed election year with many familiar names -
- and some less familiar -- and we'd like a chance to meet the contenders.
Starting this month, SFWPC will transform our monthly happy hours into "Meet the Candidates"
events, where you can still get together with all the political women you're looking forward to seeing, but also get to know this year's candidate lineup.
You can find out about our candidate events on our Events page, which will be updated as events are finalized.
Each candidate event will count toward your voting eligibility for the November 2011 endorsement, if you're a member in good standing, so make sure to sign in at all of our events and check in with our membership team to make sure your dues are paid.
|Meet the Candidates: Dennis Herrera for Mayor & Sharmin Bock for District Attorney |
Date: Thursday, April 14, 2011
Time: 5:30 - 7:00pm
Location: Wish Bar & Lounge, 1539 Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA
RSVP on Facebook
The candidates are eager to meet our membership and discuss the challenges they will tackle in their races.
Dennis Herrera for Mayor
In 2001, Dennis Herrera ran as the underdog candidate and was elected as San Francisco's first Latino City Attorney. Dennis has served in that post for over nine years and as City Attorney, he has used the power of his office to help protect consumers, defend our civil liberties, and protect the environment and air quality. His office has been hailed by American Lawyer magazine as "one of the most aggressive and talented city law departments in the nation."

Sharmin Bock for District Attorney
Sharmin Bock, candidate for District Attorney, is a veteran prosecutor with a passion for justice. She has over 21 years of courtroom experience and a track record of achieving results. Sharmin leads the specialized trial units for Alameda County that are recognized as models for the state, including H.E.A.T., Unsolved Crimes/DNA Cold Hits, Sexual Assault, Sexually Violent Predator, and Public Integrity. She has lived in San Francisco for over 40 years and hopes to bring her experience, talent and innovation to the city she loves.
