“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.

“This decision is a mistake. Undermining our national monument protections is an assault on our most treasured historic and natural wonders, and directly contradicts the wishes of the overwhelming majority of Americans who support our public lands. The President’s executive action to reduce the boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments is not just a Utah issue—it puts all national monuments at risk. The priceless historic, cultural, and natural wonders of our national monuments are exactly the places and values which should be permanently protected, as Congress envisioned when it passed the Antiquities Act.”
