Newsom renominates Lee for city administrator

Mayor Gavin Newsom today renominated Ed Lee as San Francisco’s city administrator for another term. Ed Lee first began working for the City and County of San Francisco in 1989 as the investigator for The City’s first Whistle Blower Ordinance and has since served as the executive director of the Human Rights Commission, director of City Purchasing, and director of the Department of Public Works before he was first appointed as city administrator in 2005, according to the mayor's office. 

“From making city departments more efficient to greening our city fleet, Ed Lee has served our city tremendously the last five years,” said Mayor Newsom. “I’m proud to nominate him for another term so we can continue the progress we’ve made in long-term capital planning and government reform.

“For the last five years as city administrator, Ed Lee has spearheaded government efficiency measures and reforms that are reducing the size and cost of government, from reducing the vehicle fleet to consolidating departments and back-office functions to save tax dollars,” Newsom said. “Lee has developed and overseen The City’s first ever Ten Year Capital Plan to guide our priorities and infrastructure investment.”
