But while his knowledge of the complexities of local and regional North Bay politics is widely known, Waldeck also recently showed that his political prognostications extend to San Francisco.
By predicting the the results of the June 5th election in San Francisco more accurately than anyone else, including the mayoral race, open board of supervisors seats and ballot measures, Waldeck won SF politics website The Usual Suspects‘ Best Political Mind contest. For doing so, he received a $500 gift card and the ever important “bragging rights.”
“I’m one heckuva lucky person in every sense of the word,” says Waldeck, a member of the MV Chamber. “My involvement with the Mill Valley Chamber, as well as the SF Chamber Public Affairs Committee and Bay Area Council greatly enhance my community involvement and business development opportunities.”
Waldeck says the contest win won’t cause him to quit his day job as head of Bay Area Business Development for Indoff Business Products, as he enjoys his commutes on Golden Gate Transit #4 bus into downtown San Francisco.
“It’s the best of all worlds,” he says.
