SAN FRANCISO DESERVES ACCOUNTABILITY NOW!

MEET THEA

Meet Thea. She’s a mom, a 20-year small business owner, a neighborhood activist, and a former San Francisco City College Board President. So you know she’s accountable.

After double murders on her block, Thea brought together public safety officials and concerned neighbors to create the Lower Haight Merchants & Neighbors Association to help make her community safer and stronger.

As a mom with no car and two kids in public schools, Thea was a founding member of the San Francisco Transit Riders and on the California High-Speed Rail Authority helped lead the fight for clean transportation.

Thea was vice president of the Rosa Parks Elementary PTA and in 2014 she was elected by her neighbors to be a City College Trustee and turn around a system drowning in debt. Thea delivered. She helped erase a multimillion dollar deficit, balanced the budget, secured the maximum level of accreditation, and helped students experiencing food insecurity survive the pandemic.

Today, with David Chiu becoming city attorney, Thea’s running for Assembly because she knows San Francisco families deserve accountability now. That means delivering for small businesses, making transit more accessible, guaranteeing quality schools for our kids and safe needle-free streets and neighborhoods, and rebuilding the middle class so every family has the opportunity to get ahead.

VOTE DEMOCRAT THEA SELBY!
YOU DESERVE ACCOUNTABILITY NOW!

Thea has lived on Haight Street with her husband and two sons for 22 years.

DELIVERING FOR SAN FRANCISCO

Balanced the City College budget as Trustee, negotiated millions in savings, refinanced bonds and reduced interest payments, and helped put the college system on solid fiscal footing.

Chaired San Francisco Transit Riders,supported Free Muni for Youth, helped pass a $500 million transportation bond, and fought for clean transportation on the California High-Speed Rail Authority Board.

Demanded accountability on the Citizens’ General Obligation Bond Oversight Committee by increasing the number of mandatory committee meetings to better oversee $7 billion in taxpayer- funded city bonds.

Stood up for a citywide boycott against red states that pass dangerous, unconstitutional legislation and partnered with NARAL to strike down an overreaching parental signature bill.

Successfully steered City College through its complex reaccreditation process, won top level educational accreditation to help put the system back on the map, and hired a permanent Chancellor with a strong financial background for City College in 2021.

Created the Lower Haight Merchants & Neighbors Association to help her neighborhood recover after two vicious double murders and to support local businesses, and created a safe, inclusive neighborhood by spearheading WalkStops to improve pedestrian corridor.

On the City College Board, shook loose $400,000 for student transit funding, managed the rollout of FREE CITY, and delivered wrap-around support for City College students during the pandemic.

Rebuild the middle class with stable and affordable housing, quality affordable childcare, more job-training programs, and strong and effective services for families.

Prioritize education by investing in public schools and community colleges, increase early education options and strong after school programs, and bridge the digital divide so all students and workers can get ahead.

Be a champion for small businesses, cut bureaucratic red tape, and make it easier for new businesses to open their doors and existing businesses to rehire employees to spur our economy.

Put public safety first so everyone – whether on the bus, on the street, in schools, or at work – is safe in San Francisco.

Invest in affordable, equitable, and clean transit options, like high speed rail, to cut down on emissions and keep California a national leader on climate change.
