School board president files to run for District 6 seat 

Jane Kim, president of the San Francisco Unified District’s board of education, has filed to run in the District 6 Board of Supervisors election. The seat is currently held by Supervisor Chris Daly, who is termed out of office.

Kim is expected to pick up support from key progressives, but also joins a field that has other well-known progressive candidates such as James Meko, a self-employed commercial printer who chairs the Western SoMa Citizens’ Task Force, and artist Debra Walker, who sits on the Building Inspection Commission.

There is a lot at stake for progressives in the upcoming election in November 2010, when five seats on the Board of Supervisors are up for grabs.

Former Police Commissioner Teresa Sparks, who is Mayor Gavin Newsom's appointee to head the Human Rights Commission, is expected to join the race as a more moderate candidate, and is considered to be a top contender. Sparks has yet to officially file.
