As Legislative Aide for District 4, Tang advised the Supervisor on policy issues before the Board of Supervisors, analyzed legislation, served as lead staff in developing the City’s first two-year budget that balanced a $6.8 billion annual City budget and closed budget shortfalls of $380 million, and worked with District 4 neighbors and businesses to implement community improvement projects, including the completion of a pilot Storefront Improvement Project on Noriega and Taraval streets that improved 15 neighborhood businesses and created a model for small businesses Citywide. Tang also spearheaded efforts to assist small businesses comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, helping to create access for all San Franciscans and protect businesses.
