The new SF mayor is London Breed

https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/art … 991190.php

Board of Supervisors President London Breed made San Francisco history Wednesday as she was assured of becoming the first African American woman to be elected mayor.

“I’m so hopeful about the future of our city. I’m looking forward to serving as your mayor, and I’m truly humbled and truly honored,” Breed said in a brief appearance on the City Hall steps after the only candidate with a chance of catching her, former state Sen. Mark Leno, conceded the race.

“Whether you voted for me or not,” Breed said, “as mayor I’ll be your mayor, too.”

Breed’s victory sweeps aside a stubborn political barrier for women of color in San Francisco, and will make the city the biggest in the U.S. to have a female mayor.

It also marks a crowning achievement in a remarkable life story. Raised in poverty by her grandmother, with a sister dead from a drug overdose and a brother in prison, Breed held up her accomplishments as a beacon for anyone struggling to break free from challenging circumstances.

It's really a turning point for SF politics, a sign that SF voters are much more conservative than in the past. She was funded by our equivalent of the Koch Bros, and still 50% of the population chose her.

We were talking about this at lunch.

I am not on the pulse of SF politics (in fact, I hardly know Marin politics either), but there was an argument over whether she was anti-affordable housing. Affordable housing is a sacred cow among progressives.

Nothing matters more to people in SF than the appearance of being hipper than hip.

They're wealthy people who care deeply about the poor.

The negro population of SF is LESS THAN ONE-HALF the negro population of the U.S.

Six percent.



They're like libbies everywhere. They like negroes in the abstract.
