San Francisco’s newest Planning Commissioner is Milicent Johnson, after a unanimous Board of Supervisors vote Tuesday to approve her appointment by Mayor Mark Farrell.
Farrell appointed Johnson to fill the seat formerly held by Christine Johnson, who is running in the November District 6 supervisor contest.
Milicent Johnson describes herself in her application for the post as a “forward-looking leader” with experience in developing programs “that support equity and social change in vulnerable communities.”
Johnson works for Women Donors Network. Before that, she worked for the Tipping Point Community and helped steer grants toward issues of homelessness and criminal justice.
