Mayor Lee on Trump

San Francisco leaders have been out front in their condemnation of the election of Donald Trump (see supervisors Mark Farrell and Aaron Peskin, pages 7 and 9). The common message of defending San Francisco values was echoed by Mayor Ed Lee, who issued a statement saying, “Today many San Franciscans are feeling anxious and nervous following this divisive and polarizing  presidential election. But San Francisco will remain San Francisco. And the values that bind us together as San Franciscans — inclusiveness, tolerance, and compassion for one another — will carry us forward despite this election season. San Francisco will continue to be a beacon of light, a city dedicated to progress, and a leader on issues that have changed the landscape of our country for the better.”
