SACRAMENTO - Attorney General Xavier Becerra today issued the following statement on the passing of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee:

“He left us too soon,” was Attorney General Becerra’s reaction to the news of Mayor Ed Lee’s unfortunate passing. “Mayor Lee was a dedicated public servant who gave his all for the City of San Francisco. He demonstrated a commitment to improving and empowering humanity through his years fighting for civil rights and economic progress. It is no coincidence that the city of rolling hills led the nation in many important ways, with Mayor Lee in the driver's seat. Carolina and I are deeply saddened by his untimely passing and will keep Anita and his loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.”
