“Representing District 8 on the Board of Supervisors has been one of the deepest honors of my life,” Wiener wrote. “I’ve lived in this district for nearly 20 years, and it’s a unique and wonderful place — beautiful neighborhoods, engaged and passionate people, and a deep commitment to social and economic justice.”

The letter can be found in full on Medium.

Wiener will be sworn in to his new role as a California State Senator on Monday.
