Candidate San Francisco Board of Supervisors
Marjan Philhour is an accomplished small-business owner and working mom with two decades of experience in public service. She is a candidate for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors District 1. If successful she will become the first woman of Iranian and Filipino descent to be elected to public office in San Francisco.
Philhour spent four years in the U.S. House of Representatives serving as a legislative aide to Members of Congress. After returning home to California, Philhour served as senior advisor to Governor Gray Davis’ chief of staff. Over the past ten years, she has led her own San Francisco-based consulting firm, working with nonprofits and local, state, and federal candidates.
A proponent of public and community service, Philhour is involved with San Francisco based community organizations and is a member of San Francisco's Democratic County Central Committee.
Philhour is one of ten candidates vying for the district 1 seat and considered as the moderate front-runner in the race. Her campaign has been endorsed by several current members of the Board of Supervisors, state elected officials, and other local officials, including Betty Yee, California State Controller and London Breed, President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
