SAN FRANCISCO—Bay Area public relations and public affairs firm Singer Associates is part of a team of lobbyists hoping the drum up support for a ballot initiative that would revitalize the Candlestick Point neighborhood of the city and help keep the NFL’s 49ers in San Francisco.

The campaign is being led by co-chairs including Senator Diane Feinstein, former Mayor Willie Brown, and Hunters Point-area supervisor Sophie Maxwell. Among those working on the initiative along with Singer are Mayor Gavin Newsom’s chief political consultant, Eric Jaye, and Terris Barnes & Walters, the political advertising firm that worked on the 49ers’ 1997 stadium bond effort.

The 49ers have announced plans to move to Santa Clara, but the ballot measure will ask voters to approve a mixed-use development at Candlestick Point, along with the possibility of a new stadium at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.
