(From the voicemail of Sup. Tom Ammiano on Thursday, Oct. 25.) For the uninitiated, this is Ammiano's account of the club's pandemonium meeting this week to consider whether Assemblyman Mark Leno or State Senator Carole Migden gets the club's important endorsement in this hotly contested race for Migden's Senate seat.
