MAYOR LONDON BREED ON THE PASSING OF

FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE GEORGE SHULTZ

 

San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today issued the following statement regarding the passing of former Secretary of State George Shultz:

“I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Secretary George Shultz, who left a tremendous impact on our City and our country. He was well-known for his accomplishments on the world stage, but it’s important to remember that he was a fierce advocate for what many of us consider “San Francisco values”, including the value of a high-quality public education, the value of accessible healthcare for all, and the value of mutual respect and dignity for people from all walks of life. In recent years, we were fortunate that he used his role as a respected statesman to serve as a bridge builder between other countries and our City, and his international work on nuclear deterrence was truly about leaving the world in a better place. He was a giant in our community and my condolences go out to his wife, Charlotte, and all of his family and friends.”
