MAYOR LONDON BREED NOMINATES JOSE LUIS LOPEZ TO SAN FRANCISCO BOARD OF APPEALS

Lopez will bring years of lived and legal experience to the Board

 

San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today nominated Jose Luis Lopez to the San Francisco Board of Appeals. The five-member commission reviews appeals involving permits, licenses, and other use entitlements, and serves as the last step in the City’s permit issuance process. 

 

A son of Mexican immigrants and Bay Area native, Lopez was the first person in his family to attend college. He earned his B.A. from UC Berkeley and graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law, where he served as Review Editor of the Berkeley La Raza Law Journal and Editor-in-Chief of the California Law Review. He previously served on the City of Berkeley Housing Advisory Commission and was a board member for Stiles Hall, a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of students at UC Berkeley. Lopez is currently Head of Legal at Samsung NEXT and lives in Bayview Hunters Point with his wife Sophia and two daughters.

 

“I’m proud to appoint Jose Luis Lopez to serve on the Board of Appeals,” said Mayor Breed. “As a legal professional and as the son of immigrants, Jose has a deep understanding of how local policies affect our City’s vulnerable communities. I am confident that his diverse perspective and commitment to equity will ensure that the Board of Appeals serves every San Franciscan.”

 

“I'm honored by Mayor London Breed's nomination to serve on the San Francisco Board of Appeals,” says Lopez. “San Francisco formed the Board of Appeals to provide its residents with fair hearings on a wide range of important matters. As a son of immigrants, I am deeply committed to ensuring that our city serves the needs of all of its residents, regardless of income, education, and background. I look forward to upholding the Board's mission with vigor, and I'm grateful for this opportunity to serve.”
