Supervisors Re-elect David Chiu as Board PresidentRandy Shawbyline‚ Jan. 09‚ 2013
Again demonstrating the strong political skills that have typified his career outside his mayoral race, Supervisor David Chiu won unanimous first ballot re-election as President of the Board of Supervisors. The vote followed a debate that began with new Supervisor Norman Yee nominating David Chiu. Jane Kim then nominated Malia Cohen, who in turn nominated Kim. Scott Weiner then announced he would not be a candidate, and he seconded Yee’s nomination of Chiu. John Avalos then seconded the nomination of Kim, and David Campos did likewise for Cohen. But a potentially competitive three way race never occurred.
