My Top 3 Priorities

  • AFFORDABLE HOUSING
  • NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS FOR OUR KIDS
  • QUALITY OF LIFE AND A BETTER SUNSET & SUPPORTING OUR SENIORS

Experience

Biography

My name is Tuan Nguyen, a Sunset native, and I am running for District 4 Supervisor. I look forward to meeting you throughout the campaign. I have built lasting relationships with Sunset/Parkside families, small businesses, and ethnic communities in the last 37 years in our neighborhood. I am a graduate of Holy Name, SI, and San Francisco State University. My family and I are proud to have deep roots in the Westside.

 

As chairperson in 2010, I worked to fundraise support to build the LEED certified Ortega Branch Library to make the Sunset better. I was elected to serve as president of Westside Democratic Club. As Regional Field Director with Youth for Understanding, USA, I supervised international high school students on exchange program, complying with local school districts, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Justice and partner countries. I have consulted and managed multiple non-profit and political campaigns. I have earned the trust of the people to get the job done. That matters.

 

Changes to San Francisco have threatened to negatively impact our middle-class families. Native San Franciscans can no longer afford to live in the City. We must keep our district uniquely diverse. I will lead District 4 independently devoid of the moderate v. progressive division at City Hall. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

AFFORDABLE HOUSING:

 

I will not allow developers and land speculators to dictate the future of the Sunset and Parkside. While bureaucrats and compromised elected officials are eager to change zoning laws, it is a mistake to allow housing units to be built up to 5 stories across District 4. I pledge to standardize Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to create more housing stock.

 

NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS FOR OUR KIDS:

 

I will fight to keep our children close to home in neighborhood schools and our teachers here in the City. The SF Unified School District continues to choose other priorities. All families and kids should have access to excellent public schools local to their neighborhood.

 

QUALITY OF LIFE AND A BETTER SUNSET:

 

Demand our share of resources. SFMTA continues to ignore small businesses and resident input on Taraval St. and other corridors by painting curbs red, eliminating MUNI stops and eliminating parking spaces that are vital to local residents and mom & pop shops. Property crime is rampant. I pledge to be a strong, vocal leader to ensure that the streets are clean, beautification projects get completed, and our residents are safe.

 

SUPPORTING OUR SENIORS

 

Seniors should have access to senior centers with all available resources in our district. We should support models like that of SF Village in the Richmond District, where volunteers sign up to help seniors with household errands. Seniors should be able to thrive with dignity and support in the comforts of their own home if they choose to.
