LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark Gonzalez released the following statement on the passing of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee:
“We lost a good man today. Mayor Ed Lee presided over an era in San Francisco that comes once in a lifetime, and he will be missed. When San Francisco’s tech boom peaked, Lee was the mayor to watch over that success and its effects. San Francisco, California, and the nation are forever changed because of what Ed Lee did as mayor, and one of his stature will likely not be seen for some time.
“London Breed will be an outstanding Acting Mayor and we have the utmost confidence in her.”
