I think she is also the first black female to run for Mayor. Growing up in San Francisco is hard work. She is well prepared and I wish her great success and hopefully a job she loves. Brava, London Breed

She is the only black woman mayor in the 15 biggest US cities. I hope she does a great job and that more women, and especially minority women, continue to be elected to political positions of power.
