San Francisco attorney and former county prosecutor Randall “Randy” Knox told The Recorder today that he will run for the board of supervisors. Knox said he has taken out official paperwork to declare his intent to run and that he will submit them to the department of elections soon.
Knox said he will run for District 11, where he has lived for roughly 20 years, a district that encompasses the Excelsior neighborhood as well as parts of Mission Terrace and Ingleside.
Knox left the district attorney’s office in 1991 and currently practices criminal defense. He also sits on the San Francisco Board of Appeals, which according to its Web site is a “quasi-judicial body” that decides appeals of decisions made by county agencies.
Knox said he has received indications of support from Supervisor Bevan Dufty, board of supervisors President Aaron Peskin and the man who formerly held Peskin’s position, one-time mayoral hopeful Matt Gonzalez.
