“London Breed Captures the Mayoral Win” San Fran’s First Black Female Mayor

In our previous edition we covered London Breed who at the time was among several candidates who had officially thrown their hat in the race for the next San Francisco mayor following the untimely death of Mayor Ed Lee.

Breed who is a native of San Francisco and a life-long public servant ran her campaign committed to affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, worthy schools and the homeless crisis among other notable platforms. The race was close and the distance in percentage of votes separating the two candidates small, but the win itself for Breed was Big! Mark Leno conceded to Breed after running a tight race, one in which she pulled away, pulled ahead and ultimately pulled out the win. Breed prevailed! Many would attribute her win to her contributions not only while Acting Mayor, but also her courageous work as a member of the Board of Supervisors. The results were certified and Breed was sworn in on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 as the 45th Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco. Like Lee, Breed too is a first. Breed is the first African American woman elected to lead the City of San Francisco. Prior to the final results Breed maintained focus, commitment and poise as she expressed to the voter’s how she was looking forward to being the City’s next mayor. Breed vowed to be every voter’s mayor regardless of where the votes were cast. During her inaugural speech Breed shared “No matter where you come from, No matter what you decide to in life, you can do anything you want to do”. Breed proclaimed that her focus and priority would be about what San Francisco needs. Congratulations to Breed on her recent victory. Trendsetters to Trendsetters wishes her and the City of San Francisco all the best!
