Mayor London Breed
Mayor of San Francisco
A lifelong community leader, London Breed currently serves as the 45th Mayor of San Francisco. She first won election to the Board of Supervisors in November 2012. In January of 2015, her colleagues elected her to serve as President of the Board. Breed was re-elected as District 5 Supervisor in November 2016 and unanimously re-elected as Board President two months later.
Mayor Breed is a native San Franciscan, raised by her grandmother in Plaza East Public Housing in the Western Addition community, located in District 5. She graduated with honors from Galileo High School and attended the University of California, Davis, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science-Public Service with a minor in African American Studies. Breed went on to earn a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of San Francisco.
Prior to her election as District 5 Supervisor, Breed served as Executive Director of the African American Art & Culture Complex in the Western Addition for over a decade, transforming the struggling center into a vital, financially stable community resource, providing after school arts and cultural programs for youth and seniors. She also served for five years as a San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Commissioner and in 2010 was appointed by then Mayor Gavin Newsom to be a San Francisco Fire Commissioner, where she served until her election to the Board of Supervisors.
Mayor Breed has dedicated her adult life to improving the City’s housing, environment, public safety, transportation, and quality of life.
