Alioto-Pier Out of Insurance Commissioner Race

Michela Alioto-Pier
Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier's husband, Tom Pier, moments ago confirmed to SF Weekly that his wife has dropped out of the race for state insurance commissioner.

The District 2 supervisor has not made it to City Hall since last month due to a leg injury. Pier said this injury is the reason his wife has left the statewide race.

Pier said his wife may, however, run again for the supervisorial position she currently holds. Last year Alioto-Pier told SF Weekly she may sue the city if City Attorney Dennis Herrera doesn't reverse his opinion that she is termed out of office. Pier said the "option is still open" regarding that path.

Alioto-Pier's husband -- who has had all calls regarding his wife shunted his way -- would only describe her injury as "an injured leg." He added that Alioto-Pier's "long-term prognosis is fine. She needs time to recover. However long that will be is up to the doctors to determine."

He had no idea when she would begin attending City Hall again.
