Summary: The neighborhood at the center of San Francisco's thorniest debates has a new city supervisor.

Chronicle reporter J.D. Morris spent time with Preston and joins host Demian Bulwa to talk about Preston's challenges — including working with Tenderloin residents who want tougher law enforcement. | Unlimited Chronicle access: Learn more about your ad choices.
