Tom Ammiano Makes It Official: He Won't Be Next Mayor

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano told SF Weekly, in no uncertain terms, he doesn't want to be the next damn mayor. He told his former board colleagues the same. He hasn't yet hired out a pilot to do skywriting — but his drift is unmissable.

Supervisor Chris Daly remains undaunted. “I think it's clear that Tom doesn't *want* to do it,” wrote Daly in an e-mail regarding the online petition he's started to draft Ammiano. “I think it's

slightly less clear that he can't be convinced to change his mind. And

that's what I'm focused on at the moment.”

Perhaps it's time to unfocus. With the supes scheduled to vote on a mayoral successor today — or not — Ammiano put out a formal statement. Its essence: Thanks but no thanks.
