The Harvey Milk Club Supports The Reappointment of Angela Chan To The Police Commission

Dear Members of the Board of Supervisors,

We are writing today on behalf of the elected Executive Board of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club to voice our unanimous support for Angela Chan's reappointment to the Police Commission. For the past four years Commissioner Chan has shown a dedication to her work unique among city commissioners.

As members of the LGBT community, a community disproportionately affected by violence even here in San Francisco, Commissioner Chan's commitment to addressing the concerns of underrepresented communities like ours is the core reason for our support. As a commissioner she has proven to be an effective voice for the voiceless, a voice that is desperately needed on this commission.

We urge you today to do the right thing and ignore the city hall politicking that is attempting to derail Commissioner Chan's reappointment and to instead listen to the chorus of community voices, from the LGBT community, communities of color and the violence prevention community, and reappoint this hard working and dedicated public servant.

Tom Temprano & Laura Thomas
Co-Presidents, Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club
