Kamala Harris Ceremonially Swears-In New Supe London Breed
California Attorney General Kamala Harris is in town this morning for a ceremonial swearing-in for San Francisco supervisor-elect London Breed before she officially takes her new post this afternoon.
At a 10 a.m. ceremony in City Hall's South Light Court, Harris planned to administer the oath of office to Breed, who was elected in November to represent District 5.
Breed and Harris are longtime friends, and worked together in San Francisco while Harris served as district attorney.
A spokeswoman for Breed said Breed considers the attorney general a mentor.
Breed will be officially sworn in at a noon meeting of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, along with supervisor-elect Norman Yee.
Tonight, a 6 p.m. reception will be held for Breed at the African American Art and Culture Complex at 762 Fulton St. Breed previously served as executive director at the cultural center.
Breed will replace Supervisor Christina Olague, who was appointed by Mayor Ed Lee last year when then-supervisor Ross Mirkarimi was elected sheriff.
District 5 includes the Haight-Ashbury, Western Addition, Fillmore and Hayes Valley neighborhoods.
