Chiu, 42, was re-elected to the position by his fellow supervisors in a unanimous vote after retaining his District 3 seat in November’s election.

Also at Tuesday’s meeting, San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge Cynthia Ming-mei Lee swore in all of the supervisors who were elected or re-elected in November’s election.

Chiu, Eric Mar, David Campos and John Avalos were re-elected, while London Breed and Norman Yee won their first terms on the board.
