Supervisor David Campos became the first incumbent on the Board of Supervisors to file for re-election Tuesday, promising to continue his efforts to improve Muni and public safety.

Six of the 11 seats on the Board of Supervisors are up for election in November, of which five have incumbents seeking another term.

Campos, whose district includes Bernal Heights and the Mission, was the first incumbent to make his re-election bid official by filing with the Department of Elections on Tuesday. He was joined by a large group of supporters, including Supervisor Scott Wiener.

Campos is expected to face little opposition in his quest to serve another term, unlike other incumbents who may have a more challenging battle ahead of them.

Campos, who is considered a leader of the progressive movement on the board, struck a cooperative tone that has recently become common in city politics.

“It’s OK to have differences of opinion,” Campos said. “You can disagree without being disagreeable.”
