Focus on Mark leno seat...

No not a springboard. I'm already sprung! SMILE
Leno seat interest Me because it's due, and I wouldn't be opposed. This could give the LP some needed exposure.
In the likelihood tpwards victory, I'd endorse a write in candidate, as My goal is municipal SF reform/restructure.

In SF I'm in a unique position, to place freedoms in political campaigns. As a state rep I'd run LP. In municipal elections one doesn't declare a party.
