Matt Gonzalez is a San Franciscan. From Wiki:
Matthew Edward Gonzalez (born June 4, 1965) is an American politician and attorney, artist, and activist who was a prominent figure in San Francisco politics during the years 2000-2004. Gonzalez was a member and president of San Francisco County’s Board of Supervisors. (As a consolidated city-county, the only such municipality in California, San Francisco does not have a traditional city council. Instead, the county board of supervisors acts as the legislative branch of government, while the mayor of the city acts as the executive branch.) He was also one of the first Green Party candidates elected to public office in the Bay Area. In 2003, Gonzalez ran for mayor of San Francisco but lost to in a close race to Democrat Gavin Newsom. He currently practices law in San Francisco.
