London Breed Becomes First African American Female Mayor of SF

London Breed is the first African-American woman elected to be mayor of San Francisco. Former California state Sen. Mark Leno conceded defeat in the state’s mayoral race to Breed. On Tuesday, she had the upper hand with a 1,861-vote lead over Leno with about 9,360 votes still to be counted, according to the city Department of Elections.

“I called Supervisor London Breed this morning to congratulate her … and to wish her every success both personally and professionally in her new job as mayor of San Francisco,” Leno said during a news conference. He could have been the first openly gay mayor of San Francisco.

There’s no word from Breed’s camp on her win just yet but she does share her plans on what she wants to do as mayor.
