The Chick Factor

He's idealistic, he's good-looking, and he's even a great listener

Most important of all for this constituency, Matt Gonzalez is a great listener.I once saw him during a board hearing beckon Residential Builders Association President Joe O'Donoghue, a political opponent who talks for hours without inhaling, back to the dais twice because Gonzalez wanted to fully understand O'Donoghue's words. Gonzalez is the only person I've ever interviewed who suffers a tic requiring him to periodically say, "So that's my view; what do you think?"

Political bookmakers take note: Matt Gonzalez is the man a certain overlooked segment of San Francisco has waited all her life for.
