After a surprise appointment to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 2007, Carmen Chu found that she could accomplish a great deal in local government. She ran successfully for two more terms and then moved on to become San Francisco City and County's Assessor-Recorder, an office to which she was re-elected in 2014 with 98 percent of the vote. Chu talks here with Jonathan Stein about the influences that prepared her for public life, including pursuing her master's degree from the Goldman School of Public Policy.
