Trust for Public Land Statement on Death of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee

Will Rogers, President of The Trust for Public Land, today issued the following statement:

“We are deeply saddened today about the passing of our friend, Mayor Ed Lee. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Mayor Lee’s family, friends and the people of San Francisco, whom he served so well. Mayor Lee was a champion of parks and ensuring all San Franciscans, especially children, had access to green space, and the city he governed was the first to ensure that every resident lived within a 10-minute walk of a park.
