InfoDaughter of fmr. San Francisco Mayor, Joseph Alioto.

Since 1997, Angela has been a successful civil rights and anti-discrimination attorney. She won landmark discrimination cases against corporations such as Mary Kay Cosmetics and Interstate Brands Corporation (Wonder Bread) by standing up for African Americans and the disabled who were the victims of discrimination. And in November 2000, Angela appeared before the United States Supreme Court in a case regarding employment discrimination.

Angela has also worked effectively as a San Francisco Board Supervisor. She was first elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1988 and reelected in 1992 � serving as board President from 1993 to 1995. As a San Francisco Supervisor, Angela, won important battles for diverse causes ranging from healthcare and government accountability to improving the local economy.

Angela�s extensive legislative record demonstrates her commitment to fight for the people of San Francisco. She fought tobacco companies by helping to pass the strongest anti-smoking ordinance in the country. Angela also opposed deep cuts in health services during the last budget crisis, and created the San Francisco Mental Health Board. She also wrote the nation�s first needle exchange legislation, which reduced the transmission of HIV and ultimately saved lives.

She also created the San Francisco Film Commission which increased revenue to the City and the world-wide recognition of San Francisco increasing San Francisco's visibility to the world, causing it to be a top tourist destination. Angela took the lead in creating one of the first task forces to keep the Giants in San Francisco and formed the City's Youth Commission, which gave youth a voice in city government.

Angela advocated government accountability by being one of the first supervisors to support the �Sunshine Ordinance� which made city government more accountable to the public.
