Hi! I’m Sonja Trauss, 

I’m running for election in November 2018 to represent District 6 on San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors.

I’m committed to converting our car-centric South of Market neighborhoods to people-centric neighborhoods, and preserving the Tenderloin as SF's most economically diverse neighborhood.

San Francisco has long been a place of opportunity and of refuge: a livable, welcoming city with unique values and commitments.

Whether you’ve been here for generations or you’re just starting a new stage of your life, my pledge is to advocate for you and your needs in the spirit of our city -- humanity, tolerance, openness, and respect.

I hope you'll join our campaign - I look forward to seeing you out in the neighborhood!
