SF’s Russia-Ukraine Connection

The two horizontal bands of yellow and blue of the Ukrainian flag have been popping up in many places since the invasion of Ukraine in February by Russian forces under the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

City Hall: Connie Chan

Every 10 years, our City’s charter requires that we draw new district lines based on the decennial census to ensure our population per district is as evenly distributed as possible. San Francisco had at-large supervisor races until 1976 when district elections led to the election of Harvey Milk. District elections were repealed in 1980, then reinstated in 1996, taking effect in 2000.
