Rebecca Biernet
Rebecca is a practicing Attorney and mom, who rides her bike to work from her home in D5 and sometimes drives a car.

The debate style is designed to bypass talking points and facilitate a moderated conversation that will get pointed responses to specific questions that are important to the community. The event is hosted by people who work directly with District 5 residents from all walks of life. The Divisadero Merchants hosts the Divisadero Art Walk; NoPA+ brings businesses together who want to support the community. Both groups are said to have an ‘ear on the street’, hearing community issues first hand. The candidates and incumbent will be allowed to cross examine each other and the audience will be given a chance to ask questions of the candidates. The event will be interactive and participatory and promises to be a great opportunity to network and meet people in the community.

Wigg Party D5 Debate

Wednesday, Sept 12, 2012
Harvey Milk Rec Center for the Arts
50 Scott Street (at Duboce)

Visit the Facebook event page:

The venerable fifth district of San Francisco is electing a Supervisor this November. The Wigg Party (The Wiggle bicycle advocacy group) is hosting a debate to find out where the candidates stand on all the issues we care about: biking, local food, and all things related to sustainability and resilience.

Please join us on the evening of Wednesday September 12th at the Harvey Milk Center for the Arts to learn more about where each candidate stands on these critical issues.

The gathering will begin at 6:45. The actual debate will take place from 7:15-8:45.

This debate will help determine the endorsements that the Wigg Party makes for the fall, and is the second in a series of three co-produced by the D5 Democratic Club, the Wigg Party and the D5 Neighborhood Action Committee.

We hope you will join us to help shape the future of our district and our city!
