San Francisco –  A statement from Eleni Kounalakis on the passing of Mayor Ed Lee

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mayor Ed Lee. Markos, Neo, Eon and I send our condolences to Anita and the Lee family. Ed Lee was truly the unlikely mayor - a man who never dreamed of electoral victories or aspired to posts of political power. He dedicated his early life to fighting for civil rights and his later life to serving the people of San Francisco. Mayor Lee was a true public servant, dedicated to making the city work for all of its citizens, and an inspiration to those of us in public service. I am proud to have known and worked with Mayor Lee, and I know he will be greatly missed.”
