Matt Gonzalez

Matt Gonzalez (born 1965) is the president of the San Francisco, California board of supervisors, and a member of the Green Party. He lost the December 2003 San Francisco mayoral election to the Democratic Party candidate Gavin Newsom. The race drew significant media attention because if Gonzalez had won, he would have been the only mayor of a major U.S. city who is a member of the Green Party. There was also considerable commentary that this was one of the few cases in an American election in which the Democratic candidate was the more conservative candidate.
