No surprises so far, Wasserman wants to keep working on the A’s, Morrison said he’s done with running for elected office, and Bacon is reasonably happy with his showing.
Wasserman on the A’s and what he takes from his re-election
I think what it meant is that people were happy with what’s gone on the last four years and they want it to continue. And the A’s are part of it …
I want to follow the A’s, hopefully to an end that brings them here. That’s really the thing I want to work on.
Morrison said he surprised by the margin of defeat:
I started too late, and I chose to run against a guy whose not unpopular. I don’t know of anything I could have done differently to change the result.
He thought he lost a lot of votes from people who feared that a vote for him would have handed the mayor’s office to Steve Cho.
Vinnie Bacon said his strong showing, as well as Sue Chan’s, was evidence that community activism sometimes trumps big-name endorsements.
We were up against a tough bunch of people. I think we did well and we’re holding our head high.
Sue Chan, of course, is happy. She’s supposed to call me back soon. Hopefully Steve Cho and Trisha Tahmasbi will too.
