According to the City Charter, London Breed will hold the position of acting mayor and board president for now, unless the San Francisco Board of Supervisors selects a successor before a special election to be held June 5, 2018. Breed has yet to decide if she plans to run for the position, but if she does and wins, she could serve two additional four-year terms. (Dec. 13, 2017)

In her current role, Breed is the first African-American female Mayor of San Francisco. The city has only had a few mayors of color, including Willie Brown (1996 - 2004), Lee and now Breed. She follows Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) as the second woman to hold the position, who became acting mayor after Harvey Milk was assassinated in 1978. (Dec. 13, 2017)
