A chance to honor city attorney

City Attorney Dennis Herrera was re-elected to his post in November for a third term, but the victory was relatively subdued by the fact that he was uncontested in the race.

If you missed the post-election celebrations, you will have another chance soon to congratulate Herrera.

On Jan. 7, Herrera will be officially sworn in during a 4 p.m. ceremony in City Hall’s North Light Court, according to an invitation recently sent by the city attorney to supporters.

Among his accomplishments, the city attorney has led San Francisco’s legal battle for same-sex marriage, has fought for the closure of a Potrero Hill power plant and more recently got Kellogg Co. to stop claiming some of its sugary cereals can boost children’s immune systems.
