Eudaly is not your typical commissioner-elect. She owns a bookstore that features books like “Capitalism: What it is and How Can We Destroy It?” She’s the first person to beat an incumbent commissioner in 24 years. She’ll be the only commissioner who is a renter and the only one who lives on the east side of the city. 

“A lot of people want to see change at City Hall, and a lot of people don’t feel represented,” Eudaly said.

Eudaly ran on a change platform, particularly around the issue of housing. She’s advocated for a rent freeze and rent control, the construction of affordable housing and banning no-cause evictions.
