Ousted former San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin announced he would not be throwing his hat back in the ring in 2022, quelling speculation about him mounting a comeback bid for the office from which he was just recalled over what critics called a lax-on-crime approach.

Boudin, who had been successfully recalled from office in June, previously left the door open to running in the special election this fall or in the contest next year for district attorney. But after consulting family and friends, he has decided that his family is more important.

"My son is on the verge of taking his first step and speaking his first word. My wife’s research on Multiple Sclerosis at UCSF deserves the same support she has offered my work. My elderly father just came home from prison after more than 40 years," he tweeted. "I am choosing to put my family first: I will not be running for office in 2022."

"I know this news will come as a disappointment to many who are dedicated to reform. I assure you I remain deeply committed to justice and to the people of San Francisco," he said.
