Real Estate Council announces City Council endorsements

The Real Estate Council has issued its endorsements for the coming City Council races.

In the hotly contested District 13 race, Jennifer Staubach Gates got the nod over Leland Burk.

And in the race for the District 14 seat, Bobby Abtahi can add to council to his impressive list of endorsements, including former council members and “Car-Free” Patrick Kennedy among others.
