Former San Francisco Supervisor and Board President Matt Gonzalez will be Ralph Nader’s vice presidential running mate in the 2008 election. Nader, an independent presidential candidate, made the announcement this morning from Washington, D.C.
“I found him to be unwavering in his principles and committed to his politics with clear eloquence and humane logic,” Nader said in a press release. “I wanted someone who served in government and who knows what kind of challenges our cities face and who has a record of accomplishment in areas such as election reform, criminal justice, and the creation of the highest minimum wage in the country.”
In 2003, Gonzalez ran for mayor of San Francisco, but lost to Gavin Newsom. Gonzalez is currently a partner at Gonzalez & Leigh, a law firm in San Francisco.
