Is there a more toxic name in local politics than that of District 6 Supervisor Chris Daly? In 2008 we saw efforts to attack progressive candidates for the Board of Supervisors by tagging them as Daly's "puppets." Now a website run by a group calling itself "Common Sense Voters" is attacking District 2 supervisorial hopeful Janet Reilly by claiming that Daly is "behind Janet Reilly's agenda for San Francisco."
For the past seven years, there has been no greater opponent of Chris Daly's agenda than me. I have known Janet Reilly for well over a decade, and I can assure you that comparisons between her and Daly are utterly ridiculous. Janet Reilly opposes Chris Daly's agenda as much as I do. She has the full support of our city's greatest moderate leaders and she will be a strong moderate voice on the board. I urge you to support her.
