RIP Mayor Ed Lee

Today we said Good-bye to San Francisco's mayor, Ed Lee, who died late Tuesday night while shopping with his wife.

It's so sad. He was an amazing man; the country's first Chinese-American mayor of a major metropolitan city. He loved his City, its people and all that we stand for.

I can't write much thru my tears, but it's all out there if you are interested in reading more about him.


Ed's death really is a huge deal. We have an acting mayor until the special election June 5, 2018-six months after Ed's death. Lots of jockeying for position is in our future as the City sorts itself out and decides in which direction it wants to go under a new administration.

He was a really good man. He had a wife and two grown daughters who are devastated. No one had a bad word to say about him and he never said a bad word about anyone else. Only 65, he had a lot of good life ahead of him but for the heart attack that took him at first strike.
