Tony Hall For Mayor: SF Hopeful Releases First Campaign Ads (VIDEO)

It’s November or bust -- SFGate just found the first two mayoral campaign ads of the race. They come to us from former supervisor Tony Hall. (Check them out below.)

For those of you wondering who Tony Hall is, here’s what we learn about him from the videos:

- Pension reform is his bread and butter.
- He rebuilt Harding Park and Ocean Avenue.
- He doesn’t affiliate himself with a political party.
- He’s in a band.
- He has 3,427 children.

Hall is a long-time local and, like the background music in his campaign ads, he’s decidedly old school. He has a focus on small businesses, neighborhoods and parks. And he’s the lead singer in a society-circuit band called Tony Hall and The Hallmarks. (Hey-oh!)

Take a look at the videos below and let us know what you think of our new candidate in the comments.
