London Breed Becomes San Francisco's New Mayor 14 Jun 2018 06:17 AM EST

London Breed is set to be the next mayor of San Francisco after fellow frontrunner Mark Leno announced his concession Wednesday, marking a milestone in the diverse city’s political history.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Leno announced he had called Breed to congratulate her.
“Her success is San Francisco’s success,” he said.
This likely marks the end of the road for the other leading candidates, Jane Kim and Angela Alioto, who also vied to finish the late Mayor Ed Lee’s term that runs through 2020. Though San Franciscans voted to elect his replacement more than a week ago, the use of an unusual ranked-choice voting system in an extremely close race slowed down the count.
Breed, the Board of Supervisors president, will be San Francisco’s first black woman to permanently hold the role, which she held temporarily late last year when she stepped in as acting mayor after Lee’s sudden death in December of cardiac arrest.
Shortly after she announced that she would then run for the permanent office, the board voted to replace her as interim mayor with Supervisor Mark Farrell. Those who pushed for the replacement said that letting her continue to serve as interim mayor gave her campaign an unfair advantage, but the emotions surrounding her contentious ouster may have ultimately given her a leg up in the June election.
