City Hall: Connie Chan

We Are Here to Serve You

Happy New Year and Year of the Rabbit to all! I am excited to share with you what we plan to accomplish in the coming months.

Because of the redistricting process, we now have a new district map which includes the Sea Cliff and Presidio Terrace as part of District 1, so please join me in welcoming our neighbors to the district!

With the new year, we have some new updates from our office. I want to formally reintroduce you to my team and provide updates on what each staffer will be working on for the district.

Angelina Yu

Angelina started her time in City Hall with former District 1 Supervisor Eric Mar, then continued with Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer. We were fortunate enough to have Angelina stay on when we took office in 2021.

As a San Francisco native who calls the Richmond home, I’m sure many of you have seen her in the district or spoken with her, if you called our office.

Last year, Angelina was working on transportation issues and providing support to our community members and neighborhood merchants. We are so happy to announce that she is getting ready to welcome a new baby to her family, which means she will be on maternity leave starting in the new year and will return by summer. We wish her a safe delivery and a healthy baby.

Robyn Burke

Robyn joined our office in 2022 and will be leading our communications efforts with communities as well as with the media.

Robyn started her veteran public service career with Senator Dianne Feinstein, then for the past decade at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, beginning under then-District Attorney Kamala Harris.

She will work with our Richmond District Police Station to address our community’s public safety concerns and advocate for policies that will help us reach a balanced approach to reform the criminal justice system and deliver meaningful public safety measures for everyone.

Frances Hsieh

Frances has more than two decades of legislative experience in San Francisco City Hall working for members of the Board of Supervisors including former supervisor, now State Treasurer Fiona Ma and former Board President Norman Yee.

Since joining the District 1 Office in 2021, Frances has been working on issues advancing immigrant and workers’ rights, as well as improving labor protection. Focusing on budget and city service efficiency, her insightful policy analysis skills have helped our team push forward significant progress on good and clean government.

Kelly Groth

After leading our successful supervisorial campaign in 2020, Kelly immediately rolled up her sleeves and got to work at the District 1 Office in 2021. Since then, with her exceptional community organizing skills and policy experience, our team has been able to push forward bold environmental policies at the Board of Supervisors and the Local Agency Formation Commission.

This year, with support from housing advocates and labor unions, we put the Affordable Housing Production Act on the ballot; Kelly went on leave to help manage the campaign. The election delivered decisive results which will now help us take the next steps to stabilize and build more affordable housing that our working families need. She returned to our office in November. Moving forward, her priorities will be staffing housing, transportation and environmental issues.

As always, please reach out to my office to schedule a one-on-one meeting during my office hours by emailing chanstaff@sfgov.org or by calling 415-554-7410. Of course, connect any time if we can be of service to you.

I wish you all a happy and healthy new year.

Connie Chan represents District 1 on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. She can be reached at 415-554-7410 or chanstaff@sfgov.org.
