With all the controversy surrounding Mayor Ed Lee’s decision to enter the mayor’s race, you’d expect he’d be fielding the toughest questions from voters.
But during a campaign event in the Mission district on Tuesday, it was not the mayor, but his supporter, District 6 Supervisor Jane Kim, who faced the fire.
While the mayor and supervisor talked to residents and merchants on 16th Street, a Chinese shopkeeper at Sam’s Shoe Services asked Supervisor Kim why she isn’t married.
Kim laughed about the question after leaving the shop. Her answer?
“I’m working really hard at City Hall,” she said.
Then she told the shopkeeper to support his mayor in November.
