MPA Alums in the Public Eye

Two alums are running for office during this campaign season, good luck to you both:

  • Quintin Mecke (MPA 2006) is running for San Francisco Supervisor, District 5 (see statement about stepping down as Assembly Member Tom Ammiano’s Communication Director to run for the office).
  • Shamann Walton (MPA, 2010) is running for San Francisco School Board Member (see his campaign website)

**********************************

Jarrod Flores (MPA, 2012), Campaign Finance Officer for the City / County of San Francisco Ethics Commission has been working to get amendments made to AB 2452, Political Reform Act of 1974.  These amendments would require that candidates, lobbyists and others involved in the political process file their campaign filings and reports online and mandates that filings and public viewings be free of charge.  Jarrod was able to get Assembly Member Tom Ammiano to sponsor the amendments and has been going back and forth to Sacramento for meetings on the bill.

Emily Drennen and baby at White House Reception

Emily Drennen (MPA, 2004) was part of a group of 8 bisexual activists honored at a LGBTQ Pride Month reception in the East Wing of the White House in mid-June.   In this somewhat blurred photo, you can see Emily holding her new foster-adopt child while President Obama is waving to her.  In her other life, Emily is a transit, biking and walking activist.
