San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today issued the following statement regarding a report from the City Attorney documenting a number of legal and ethical violations committed by the Director of the Department of Building Inspection since 2011:

“The City Attorney’s report shows a number of legal and ethical violations committed by the Director of DBI since 2011 that compromise the public’s trust in City government and are completely unacceptable by any civil servant. I have already asked the Building Inspection Commission to remove the Director from his position, which they have the authority to do under our City charter. I have also placed the Director on leave effective immediately.

I want to thank the City Attorney for their ongoing investigation and for their transparency in the effort to investigate any departments impacted by the recent federal charges. No matter where this investigation leads, we will hold individuals accountable for misconduct and we will institute reforms to prevent anything like this from happening again. Restoring public trust is our priority, and we will work with the City Attorney, and DBI to ensure that new leadership implements the changes that are clearly needed in order to serve the residents, businesses, and property owners who rely on DBI every day.”
