Yee Making Plans for Next Office

November 10, 2010 -

California State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo), the chief architect behind the California game law now starring in the Supreme Court production of Schwarzenegger vs. EMA, is considering a run for Mayor of San Francisco.

In an email to supporters, Yee stated that he walked into city hall today and opened an exploratory committee for Mayor. Yee added, “As someone who grew up in San Francisco, attended public schools, raised a family, and has been serving this city for over 20 years, I am excited about starting this new discussion.”

Yee’s website is already adorned with “For Mayor” descriptors.

After saying that everything he is today, he owes to San Francisco, Yee offered an overview of his life so far:

I came here as an immigrant at the age of 3. I grew up in the City. I went to local public schools and was fortunate enough to get a chance to go to college. I raised my family here – sending my four children to public schools – and served the people of San Francisco as a School Board member, a Supervisor, a State Assemblyman and now as State Senator.

Current San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom (D), in his second term, has his current stint expire on January 8, 2012. Newsom, however, was elected Lieutenant Governor of California in this year’s elections. It’s expected that because of Newsom’s win, the city’s Board of Supervisor’s will name an interim successor to fill the remaining year of his term as Mayor.

Yee was just reelected to the State Senate, receiving almost 80 percent of the vote.

When Newsom won, his only opponent was Camejo, the Green candidate. San Francisco is so liberal, the Republicans did not even bother to put up a candidate. So unless another Democrat steps in and takes the nomination in the primary, we will be stuck with Yee as Mayor.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

I don't think he will win the Mayorship of San Francisco. SF is a fairly liberal city and while they push the envelope in thinks like health, anyone restricting free speech is in for a fight.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

No, he'd fit right in!  They banned happy meal toys because parents can't possibly decide for themselves if they want to feed kids a happy meal, and he authored a bill that'll ban adult games since parents can't possibly decide for themselves what content is appropriate for their child.

Besides, there are enough gay people in San Fran that just vote Democrat regardless of who it is or what they've done, and he's a hero for Dems in Cali because of this bill.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

Why would he want to get rid of the people that would likely for him?

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

"Why would he want to get rid of the people that would likely for him?"

There are plenty of 'Army of Two' and 'Gears of War' players who would never vote for Yee. Okay, I'm sure there are some gays who don't play either of those games, but not many.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

Becuse thats how it works one set gets you in and then you turn on them in hopes you get more votes from the other side and the middle.

 Isn't San Fransisco the city that banned Happy Meals?  I'm sure Yee will fit right in as mayor.  Maybe residents of the city can drop off their kids at his office every day- he sure seems interested in raising other people's children.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

They banned Happy Meals? Wow didn't think any city would do that.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

That S.O.B.! I KNEW he was running for another office! That's why he's trying to pass the Bill. He doesn't care about parenting or family values. He's just padding his resume!


Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

Well, yeah.

No one who gets to an office that high is stupid or uninformed.... he knows full well that the law would do little to actually protect children, but the political gains are significant.   This whole bill was little more then a tax payer funded political campaign.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

Better there than the state senate.

Re: Yee Making Plans for Next Office

True, but I'm wondering if this run for San Francisco mayor is dependent on the SCOTUS decision(that is, how narrow the decision is, because if the majority opinion for EMA/ESA shuts the door completely on a narrower law passing Constitutional muster, then I think he'll be more likely to run for Mayor than stay in the State Senate).

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am
IanCSo im guessing a bunch of edutainment games, which a lot of people elsewhere are going gaga over, dot count as classics? Okay. If you don't mind me, i have a sudden urge to play Putt Putt....04/19/2014 - 6:15am

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm
Matthew Wilsonthis is worth a whatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyXcr6sDRtw&list=PL35FE5C4B157509C904/18/2014 - 3:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
