A few hours after the California Supreme Court dealt the final blow to Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier’s legal pursuit to be able to run for re-election, she released a statement.
It read as follows:
“I believed and continued to believe that the intent of the voters as reflected in the plain language of our city charter allows me to run for second four year term. While I am disappointed in the outcome, I of course respect the judicial process. I will continue to work hard for the residents of my district and the people of San Francisco for the remainder of my time in office.”
