Starting today, Herrera is airing a new campaign ad, which the Chronicle hinted was about the city attorney having his eye on mayor. “We’ll let you decide what election it’s about,” the paper says, noting that the ad doesn’t mention his reelection campaign or any future campaigns.
The video, posted at www.cleanairsanfrancisco.com, talks about Herrera’s efforts to shut down the Mirant Corp. Potrero power plant through a $1.1 settlement that the city inked last month, and it urges people to sign a petition asking state regulators to let the city shutter the plant. “Join me and we’ll all breathe a little easier,” Herrera says in the ad.
