Newsom names three new city commissioners

Before leaving office (whenever that will be), Mayor Gavin Newsom is making sure to take care of business.

Newsom on Thursday nominated three more commissioners: Leslie Katz to the Port Commission, Leona M. Bridges to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and Vince Courtney to serve on the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Of the 268 appointments, there are 12 vacant seats on boards and commissions, with seven nominations pending at the board of supervisors and five seats that are wide open, according to the Mayor’s Office.
