It’s a really big deal that SF elected London Breed as mayor

    Heather Knight writes, “For a week, San Francisco political insiders huddled every afternoon in the bland basement of City Hall to get the latest vote counts in the mayor’s race, crunch data and make colorful precinct maps showing who was winning where.

    He’s up! She’s up! She’s up by more! Check out those trend lines!

    Lost in all the nerding out was the sheer significance of what was being counted. On Wednesday, we could finally let it sink in: Supervisor London Breed, 43, has become the first woman of color to win election to San Francisco’s top job.

    She’ll be just the second woman ever to manage San Francisco, the first being Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who became mayor in 1978 when Mayor George Moscone was assassinated. That was so long ago, Breed was just a toddler.”
