Assemblymember David Chiu Statement on the Passing of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

This morning, I was absolutely stunned and deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Mayor Ed Lee. Years before he was Mayor, I knew him as a devoted public servant who just got things done with a deep love for our city. As we grieve, we will remember his jovial personality, his consensus building, his work to create jobs and housing, and his legacy as the first Chinese American Mayor of San Francisco. My prayers are with the Mayor’s family during this incredibly difficult time.
