Our Candidates / California / Dean Preston
Running for Board of Supervisors
Dean Preston is a statewide tenant advocate and 20-year District 5 neighbor who is fighting to keep San Francisco affordable for all of us. His campaign is about giving the community – not corporate special interests – a stronger voice in City Hall.
Dean’s father and grandparents were forced from their home and fled from Nazi Germany during World War II. Narrowly escaping with their lives, the family started over in New York City, where Dean’s father learned to speak English while attending public schools.
Dean’s background has led him to fight for safe, secure and affordable housing for everyone, and to prevent the trauma of families being uprooted from their community.
