Dennis “He's Running For Mayor” Herrera is running for mayor. This we knew. But the city attorney has told SF Weekly he'd also welcome the chance to succeed Gavin Newsom and become the city's interim mayor.
Herrera additionally noted that he has not been discussing this with members of the Board of Supervisors, who'll be the ones making that decision. But, you know, it's out there — and he's up for the job. “If the Board of Supervisors think I'd be a good candidate to lead this city, that'd be great,” he says. “But I haven't spoken with one person about it.”
That was pretty much the same answer from Sen. Mark Leno as well.
