SAN FRANCISCO – Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) released the following statement regarding the tragic death of San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee:

“I am shocked and saddened for Mayor Lee’s family and express my deepest sympathy for their loss.  Mayor Lee and I were honored to work at different times for the Asian Law Caucus, advancing civil rights and fighting for immigrant communities.  Together, I was proud to join with him to tackle homelessness, economic development, and transportation.  I know that San Francisco has lost one of its most dedicated servants.  Mayor Lee worked tirelessly to improve the lives of every San Franciscan during times of both great prosperity and extreme hardship, and his legacy will persist in the years to come.”
