New San Francisco Assemblymember Matt Haney (D), center, was sworn into office May 3 by Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Los Angeles) as Haney's mother, Kris Calvin, looks on. Haney won the runoff race April 19 to finish the term of former assemblymember David Chiu, who resigned last November to become San Francisco's first Asian American city attorney. Haney, the former District 6 supervisor, represents the 17th Assembly District (eastern half of San Francisco) and will be on the ballot in June and November as he seeks a full two-year term. Mayor London Breed is expected to soon name Haney's successor to the Board of Supervisors. Haney tweeted that he's "ready to work hard every day for the people of Assembly District 17."
