Supervisor Norman Yee beat out four other candidates late Tuesday to reclaim his District 7 seat on the Board of Supervisors for a second term.
San Francisco voters chose Yee, a progressive who formerly served on the Board of Education, over candidates Ben Matranga, Joel Engardio, John Farrell and Mike Young.
Property crime played a central role in the race, alongside housing and the ballooning city budget.
Yee is working to gather a task force to look into increasing police staffing, which has long been stuck below the 1,971 officers mandated in the City Charter.
Yee said he has increased the number of police officers in the district by a dozen during his first term and is against Proposition R, a ballot measure aimed at curbing car break-ins, vehicle thefts and home burglaries through the creation of a Neighborhood Crime Unit.
He also supported Proposition L to split appointments to the city transit board between the mayor and Board of Supervisors.
