It's not surprising that the building trades unions would have a candidate they are promoting for a local office by spreading a huge sign across the width of their headquarters. And it is not even surprising that this candidate is often described as the "conservative" in what is ostensibly a non-partisan election.
But anywhere but San Francisco, it would probably be surprising that this candidate is a prominent transgendered woman.
If I lived in the district, Ms. Sparks would not be my choice. But I love that her candidacy takes this route in our city.
