Bevan Dufty is running to become Mayor of San Francisco. If elected on November 8, 2011, he would be the first openly gay Mayor of San Francisco. Last week he made headlines around the world when his first television campaign commercial — produced by Obama ad guru Mark Putnam — was released. It was the first time in history an LGBT candidate for office had featured his or her own child in a campaign spot. You can see that ad here:
Bevan is a public school parent, one of the few in the race. He knows San Francisco needs high-quality public schools — for the families and children of today and the workers of tomorrow. He also knows if San Francisco schools don’t get better, families will continue to leave the city in droves for better options. His plan for educastion ensures that every child in San Francisco has a school that succeeds.
Here’s another video of Bevan’s appearance on MSNBC last week where he discussed the campaign and his most important job — being a father.
