San Francisco District 9 Supervisor David Campos

Where: 240 Front Street (the back room at Schroeder’s)

No host food and beverages available and highly recommended.


San Francisco Supervisor David Campos first arrived in the United States with his family at the age of 14.  As an undocumented immigrant who spoke only Spanish, David grew up in the barrio of South Central Los Angeles.  Despite these obstacles, he excelled in class, earned scholarships to college and law school, and has remained true to his roots as a progressive civil rights advocate and Democratic leader.

David represents District 9, the Mission, Bernal Heights and Portola neighborhoods.

David has served as General Counsel to the San Francisco Unified Schools District – a job that fits his ideology as a strong advocate for schools and as someone who found opportunity in his own life through education. He has worked to desegregate San Francisco schools, successfully investigated corruption, and brought open government to the School District.

Prior to serving on the Board of Supervisors, Campos was known as a progressive Police Commissioner and was also elected member of the San Francisco Democratic Central Committee.  David has fought for public disciplinary hearings for police officers, more foot patrols, and protection for medical marijuana and immigrant rights.

A respected civil rights attorney who has worked closely with the City Attorney's office, David worked on San Francisco's landmark lawsuit against the gun industry and successfully defended the city's right to provide public power against PG&E.

Within his first several months on the Board of Supervisors, Campos has made a name for himself through his vigilant questioning of city contracts.
