Oakland sends its condolences to Anita, her daughters, and all San Franciscans today. Mayor Ed Lee served his community with passion and humility, broke historic barriers, led with a compassionate heart, and was a valued friend and colleague. He will be missed dearly.

A dear friend & colleague @mayoredlee has left us too early. Ed was a good and incredibly gracious man, at a time when goodness, graciousness, and civility are not sufficiently valued in public life. My heart goes out to Ed’s family, Anita, Tania, & Brianna.

Shocked to hear of the sudden passing of Mayor Ed Lee. He was a trailblazer as the first Asian American Mayor of SF and a good man who I know will be missed in SF and beyond. Condolences to his wife and daughters. May he Rest In Peace. @mayoredlee
