Leland Yee endorsed for San Francisco mayor by Sierra Club 

State Sen. Leland Yee netted an endorsement from the Sierra Club for his San Francisco mayoral run, with Supervisor John Avalos getting the second-place vote.

Sierra Club political chairman John Rizzo said in a news release Saturday that of the nine candidates running for the seat, Yee has the strongest record of environmental stewardship for co-authoring state legislation on climate change solutions and helping to block offshore oil drilling.

Yee’s endorsement comes on top of others from several unions, including the California Nurses Association and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

Avalos was given the secondary endorsement because of The City’s ranked-choice voting system, which allows voters to pick up to three candidates.
