It wouldn't be an election year in SF without perennial underdog candidate Starchild in the race. Starchild is among a gaggle of candidates vying for Bevan Defty's seat on the Board of Supervisors in District 8, which is comprised of the Castro, Duboce Triangle, Dolores Park, Noe Valley, Diamond Heights, and Glen Park.
As the Bay Area Reporter reminds us, Starchild has run twice before against Dufty, and in the 2006 campaign he was also fighting prostitution charges after he was busted in a sting operation in a Fremont hotel. His campaign slogan? "Let's try freedom," because of course freedom is in short supply in the Castro.
