Ross Mirkarimi Says Talk of Mayoral Run is 'a Leap'
|Running for mayor?|
Why? In his column, Brown leaves readers to believe that the District 5 supervisor is planning not only a run for sheriff but a mayoral bid as well.
In addition to that, there is a Facebook page dedicated to drafting Mirkarimi, the progressive with Green Party roots, for mayor.
Mirkarimi tells SF Weekly that Brown's conclusions were "a bit of a leap."
"I think he was gleaning from the conversation a little bit," Mirkarimi said. "But yes, I am seriously looking at the mayor's race and also sheriff's race, but that's only predicated if Sheriff Hennessey is not running and we really don't know that now."
"That's how I left the conversation with Mayor Brown as well," Mirkarimi added.
So it's a leap, maybe, but a serious one.
