Mostly, Yes

An SF Supe is busted, in several ways, it seems:

"One of the fundamental underpinnings of a representative democracy is that elected officials represent the area that they come from," said Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin.

"Without commenting on the allegations that have surfaced, the notion of district elections is the notion that districts should be represented by people who come from the community."
I can't help but ponder the City's history with district vs. at-large elections. Not that it is an on-point ponder, but I love thinking about district vs. at-large elections because I'm a nerd like that.

Wonder if the Supe - already in trouble with the FBI and now facing a residency challenge too, with damning evidence of low-to-no water usage - can argue that he's just REALLY good at conserving resources?


Yeah, probably not.
