San Francisco Leaders Pick Asian-American as Mayor

Friday, 07 January 2011 08:14 PM

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco could soon have its first Asian-American mayor.

The city's supervisors voted Friday for city administrator Edwin Lee to the post being vacated by Gavin Newsom, the state's newly elected lieutenant governor.

The vote is nonbinding, however, because Newsom has not yet left office. The pick also must be confirmed by the new board of supervisors taking office this weekend.

If confirmed, Lee would become the city's first Chinese-American to lead the city, which is more than one-third Asian.

The new supervisors are expected to take up the issue on Tuesday.

The results of the vote elicited loud applause from the audience, which included many Asian-Americans.
