SF mayor opens door to lottery-picked residents


San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell is opening his doors at City Hall to allow a select group of residents to have some face time.

His office is launching “Open Door Chats,” which will give residents a 10-minute appointment with the mayor on the first and third Friday of the month from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The first sit-down with the mayor is on Friday.

A lottery process will determine who will meet with the mayor, and residents chosen can decide on the preferred time, according to the Mayor’s Office.

Farrell said in a statement:

“I believe the Mayor’s Office should be transparent, open and accessible to all San Francisco residents.”

Farrell added:

“During my time as mayor, I want to get to the heart of the issues and I want my work to be guided by what is impacting the lives of our residents on a day-to-day basis.”

Residents can sign up at, and answer questions on what topic they would like to speak with Farrell about, if they submitted a 311 complaint about the issue, and if any city departments had resolved the issue.
