San Francisco, California Has New Mayor
The San Francisco, California Board of Supervisors voted 6-3 on January 23 to appoint District 2 Supervisor Mark Farrell as acting mayor and to remove Board President London Breed.
Breed became acting mayor in December when Mayor Ed Lee suddenly died of a heart attack.
By accepting the appointment, Farrell is giving up his District 2 seat and will have a chance to appoint his successor.
Under the city charter, the board may appoint a successor to serve until the June 5 election.
