Keeping up with Leland Yee
The SF State newspaper, Golden Gate Xpress, tasked me with shooting Leland Yee this afternoon, so after getting his schedule emailed to me, I scooted away to head him off at Balboa Park BART. 20 minutes and one tweet later, I discovered that his schedule had changed and he was on his way to 24th and Mission BART. I raced away to get there before him. I succeeded, but it didn’t do me a lot of good- the man arrived at practically full-sprint, shook a few hands, flashed his wide smile, and headed up Mission, ducking in and out of stores at breakneck pace.
Following his ninja excursion to the Mission, Yee headed to Balboa Park BART, where he spent an hour handing out literature and shaking hands. At the end of the hour, John Avalos showed up with his wife and shared the station. Both of them kept a respectful distance and made efforts not to get in each other’s way. How nice to see that from political candidates.
