Washington, D.C. — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today issued the following statement on San Francisco Mayoral race:

“As a leader in our community, Mark Leno has been a staunch advocate for justice and fairness for all. His unwavering commitment to working families, public safety, affordable access to health care, and equality under the law, have left a tremendous impact in the CA state legislature and at home in San Francisco. I am grateful for Mark’s leadership and wish him much success in his future endeavors.

“Our city’s diversity has grown richer in electing the first African American woman as Mayor. From expanding affordable housing to strengthening health care and public schools to improving transportation in San Francisco, London Breed will continue to be a tireless champion for our values, our children, and our families.

“I extend congratulations and cooperation to Mayor-Elect Breed. I look forward to working with her on behalf of our glorious city of San Francisco.”
