San Francisco Supervisor David Campos announced Thursday that he plans to run for a seat in the California Assembly in 2014.
Campos, whose District 9 includes the Mission district, is seeking to replace Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who will be termed out of office next year.
If Campos wins the seat, it would be the second time he followed in the footsteps of Ammiano, who served as District 9 supervisor before being elected to the state Assembly in 2008.
Campos immigrated to the U.S. from Guatemala as a 14-year-old and graduated from Stanford University and Harvard Law School before entering public service, first as a San Francisco deputy city attorney in 1999 and then as a police commissioner before being elected supervisor in 2008.
Campos announced his candidacy Thursday morning by meeting with supporters at 24th and Mission streets and then taking a Muni bus to City Hall to file his paperwork.
