In the final installment of The Standard’s 2022 election debate series, San Francisco Supervisor Shamann Walton and challenger Brian Sam Adam took the stage Wednesday at the Bayview Opera House to discuss key issues affecting District 10.

Walton, who currently serves as president of the Board of Supervisors, is seeking a second term while Adam is a newcomer to running for office and works in the city’s Department of Technology. District 10 is made up of the Bayview-Hunters Point, Potrero Hill, Dogpatch, Visitacion Valley and Sunnydale neighborhoods.

The supervisor touted his accomplishments in restoring Muni routes that were shut down during the pandemic and expanding transit access, as well as helping small businesses in the Bayview thrive while hundreds of companies across the city were forced to permanently close their doors.

Walton also noted his efforts to get full transparency from federal regulators on what they are doing to ensure residents are not affected by toxic soil surrounding the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.

Polling shows that city residents feel the Board of Supervisors have not done enough to improve conditions in San Francisco. As the leader of the board, Walton said he would let his constituents be the judge if he deserves to continue serving in his post.

Adam, a first-generation Assyrian American whose parents emigrated from Iraq, focused much of his time in Wednesday’s debate on building more collaboration between city departments and D10 residents to improve services.

During the audience portion of the debate, one resident questioned Adam on a negative attack ad—written in Chinese—that accused Walton of not caring about residents of this community. Adam said a volunteer in his campaign made a mistake in not translating the same campaign message verbatim. He apologized for the error.

The Standard also conducted debates for District 4, District 6 and District 8.
