David Campos is a member of the San Francisco, California Board of Supervisors, representing District 9.[1] He was first elected to the council in November 2008. However, because the outgoing District 9 representative, Tom Ammiano, vacated the seat in early December 2008, former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom appointed Campos to the District 9 seat on December 4, 2008. Campos' first elected term began in January 2009.[2]

In 2014, Campos was a Democratic candidate for District 17 of the California State Assembly.


Campos was born in Puerto Barrios, Guatemala. He is a graduate of Jefferson High School in Los Angeles, California. He earned a B.S. from Stanford University in 1993 and a J.D. from Harvard University in 1996. His professional experience includes working as a Deputy City Attorney for the City and County of San Francisco and as General Counsel to the San Francisco Unified School District.[1]
