After days of back and forth she leads he leads, gracious statesman, Mark Leno concedes that his campaign would not have the steam to overcome London Breeds lead with the remaining ballots. San Francisco has its first Black Female Mayor, a historic moment in time after Breed stood in after the untimely death of Mayor Edwin Lee in December 2017. In a matter of weeks, backroom deals at City Hall stripped Breed of serving as Interim Mayor for the few months leading up to the June election. In spite of what some felt was an unjust setback twice voted Board of Supervisor President, London Breed took back the crown jewel of the City's highest office. Congratulations Madame Mayor!
