SF Board of Supervisors Elects London Breed as President
As prescribed by City Charter, the re-elected Members of the Board of Supervisors – Mark Farrell, Katy Tang, Jane Kim, Scott Wiener and Malia Cohen, and the newly appointed District 3 Supervisor, Julie Christensen, were sworn in. The reelected Supervisors are beginning their second four year term. Supervisor Christensen is sworn in for the year and must run for election in the fall.
The big news of the day was the election of a new Board President, with the first full Board since former Supervisor David Chiu departed for the State Assembly. Initially both Supervisors David Campos and London Breed were nominated, with Supervisor Breed taking the honor by a vote of 8 to 3. Supporting Campos were Supervisors Avalos, Campos and Kim, however, a motion by Supervisor Kim asked the Board to rescind the vote, so the record would reflect unanimous for Supervisor Breed and her leadership.
