Supes’ winter recess comes to a close

On Monday, the Board of Supervisors is back at work in meetings, starting with a Monday morning Rules Committee hearing on a number of Mayor Gavin Newsom appointments to such city agencies as the Public Utilities Commission, Historical Preservation Commission and the Port Commission.

Then on Tuesday, it is the final meeting of the current full Board of Supervisors. Four newly elected supervisors will be sworn into office on Jan. 8. So its goodbye on Tuesday to Supervisors Chris Daly, Sophie Maxwell, Bevan Dufty and Michela Alioto-Pier.

It is also the last possible chance for the current board to weigh in on who should be interim mayor — the person who will take over after Mayor Gavin Newsom when he is sworn into office as the state’s Lieutenant Governor. It is looking like Newsom however will postpone his swearing-in in an effort to have the new board, which is slightly more moderate, vote on the interim mayor.

But that will not stop the current board from engaging in spirited debate and comment Tuesday, and possibly voting on an interim mayor anyway.
