Mayoral appointees Brooke Jenkins and Matt Dorsey have handily won their respective races for District Attorney and District 6 supervisor, according to new vote tallies released by the San Francisco Department of Elections this afternoon. Eighty-eight percent of local ballots in the Nov. 8 election have now been counted.

District Attorney Brooke Jenkins already declared victory last week, but now The Standard has called the race. Jenkins, who leads Hamasaki by 9.3% in first-choice votes, was appointed to the position of top prosecutor in June by Breed following the recall of former District Attorney Chesa Boudin.

And appointed supervisor Matt Dorsey has now won over challenger Honey Mahogany in the race for District 6 supervisor; he has 52% of the vote compared with Mahogany’s 43%.

The District 4 supervisor race remains a nail-biter, with challenger Joel Engardio maintaining his slim lead over incumbent Gordon Mar. Engardio has 51% of the vote, leaving Mar trailing by less than 500 votes.

Meanwhile, Ann Hsu, one of Mayor London Breed’s school board appointees, has now slipped behind Alida Fisher. Lisa Weissman-Ward, Lainie Motamedi and Ann Hsu were appointed to the positions by Breed following the successful recall of three school board members in February. While Weissman-Ward and Motamedi have their spots assured, Hsu is now losing to challenger Alida Fisher by 1,707 votes. Fisher was the subject of attack ads saying she has the same policy positions as the recalled school board members.

With 38,000 ballots remaining, Fisher looks likely to boot Hsu from her seat.

And Prop. D, a signature measure for Breed, keeps losing ground and now looks very unlikely to pass. It is trailing by over 7,000 votes.
