Video of Yee after Filing for Mayoral Exploratory Committee

November 15, 2010 -

Last week, California State Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) announced the formation of an exploratory committee as part of his bid to run for Mayor of San Francisco in 2011.

A video of Yee filmed just after said filing has the Senator stating that the move will allow him to “begin the conversation with the people of San Francisco as to how to move the city forward.”

Yee, or course, authored the original California law that has made it all the way to the Supreme Court as Schwarzenegger vs. EMA. Surrounded by family, Yee played up his community roots in the video and said that he was “absolutely passionate and eager” to discuss dealing with the important issues facing San Francisco.

As noted previously, current San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom (D) was just elected Lieutenant Governor of California and plans, according to ABC, to vacate his post in January of next year. A new Mayor will be appointed by the city’s Board of Supervisors, who are itching to speed up the process and could appoint a lame-duck, one-year replacement as early as this week.

Newsom called the Board’s eagerness “meaningless" and an an attempt at "politicizing" the process.

I guess he plans to further the current SF path of sucking the fun out of childhood for all residents of SF.

Andrew EisenWho, Colin Cowherd? No one's suggesting he should be forced out. Or that he should commentate on video games.04/27/2015 - 8:10pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I do not think he should be forced ou though. he has his right to his opinion and shouldnt be forced out because people disagree with it.04/27/2015 - 8:07pm

MontePerhaps they should just add a donation system for creators like the monthly pateron model. Only those who regularly make quality content can get compensated while those who would abuse the system are ignored04/27/2015 - 7:46pm
MontePaid mods is not a bad idea; i mean its only fair that makers be compensated and even better if they can do it full time. UNfortunatly there is too much that can go wrong and room for abuse04/27/2015 - 7:44pm
Andrew EisenYeah, working on that story now. Or rather, I'm working on finding time to write up that story.04/27/2015 - 7:40pm

Matthew Wilson@zippy there is no way they are going to merge with capcom becouse both companies are not in good shape. sony, Nintendo, and square are the only companies with enough money to pull it off in japan.04/27/2015 - 4:27pm
