Longtime HIV-positive activist and blogger Michael Petrelis has filed papers to run for supervisor of the Castro district in San Francisco, according to a post on his Petrelis Files blog. The post provides a detailed list of his areas of concern, which include government transparency, public spaces and HIV/AIDS. In particular, Petrelis favors merging the city’s HIV Prevention Planning Council and the HIV CARE Services Council. He also seeks an AIDS Accountability Summit, which would daylight the inner workings of nonprofit HIV agencies. The election takes place November 4, 2014.
