In a city divided, what can we expect from Mayor London Breed?

San Francisco Board of Supervisors president London Breed speaks at Day Without a Woman San Francisco.


London Breed took over the top office in San Francisco just over a month ago. The same election that made her mayor put a majority of political progressives on the Board of Supervisors. What does this all mean for the city and county, and how does it fit into a larger narrative about race, class, and politics?

KALW’s news director Ben Trefny convened a local media roundtable to talk about it. He joined Jamilah King, the race and justice reporter for Mother Jones, and Mission Local managing editor Joe Eskenazi.


"London Breed has great potential to do the things she wants to do and the ball's in her court as to how superficial they are and how image conscious they are, or how moving they are long term," says Eskenazi

Ben was hired as Interim Executive Director of KALW in November, 2021.
