Board of Supervisors 3: Party in The Halls
After David Chiu's surprise victory as the new Board of Supervisors president and a long succession of self-congratulatory speeches by all the supervisors...
...a party broke out in the hallway outside of the chambers...
...with about half of the supervisors, such as Eric Mar above, hosting open houses in their offices.
John Avalos (above) was being interviewed by the press, and he looked a bit relieved not to have been chosen President.
Steven Jones (above left) from the weekly "Bay Guardian" was interviewing an exultant Chris Daly on why the Guardian's choice of Mirkarimi for president hadn't gone as planned.
Local lunatic Frank Chu was nursing a drink without his usual paranoid signage in hand...
...while Sean Elsbernd was hosting an open house in his office for what looked like all white people.
Bevan Dufty has snagged the most sumptuous supervisorial office on the corner of McAllister and Van Ness, which until recently housed Tom Ammiano. There were a bunch of old City Hall power brokers wandering through the office while Sophie Maxwell's pretty office (below) was nearly empty.
I guess her partnership with the "right-leaning" side didn't go over so well with her colleagues or constituents.
