Celebration of Life for Mayor Ed Lee

Hundreds of state and local delegates, as well as friends and family, gathered under the rotunda of San Francisco’s City Hall Sunday, December 17 to celebrate the life of the late Mayor Ed Lee, who died suddenly Tuesday, December 12. Lee’s daughters, Tania and Brianna Lee, shared memories of their father and his life at home, while Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Dianne Feinstein and other officials reflected on his life and career in politics and the imprint he left on the city of San Francisco.
