Seven-dozen commissioners appointed to city commissions and boards were sworn in Friday by San Francisco Mayor London Breed. The ceremonial swearing-in for the 84 appointees brings the total number of commissioners appointed or reappointed so far by Breed to 159.
More than 50 percent of Breed’s appointees are women and a majority are people of color, according to a release from the mayor’s office. Of the total, 15 commissioners are from the LGBT community, including 11 who were appointed or re-appointed Friday.
Adrian Caratowsa, appointed to the Transbay Citizens’ Advisory Committee Member, said the appointment was a chance to give back to the community.
“I’m honored and very excited to be given this opportunity to serve my community even more. It’s the least I can do for a city that has given me so much.”
Eduardo Santacana, Board of Appeals Member, said he was bringing his legal experience to the board.
“This board hears difficult cases of the utmost importance to citizens of our city.”
“As a lawyer, I will strive in every case to ensure each party receives a fair hearing, and to apply the law faithfully.”
