Mayor Lee is off to China for eight days—with Willie and Rose

Friday, March 29, 2013

Here’s another reminder of where the real political power rests in San Francisco. Mayor Ed Lee today begins his eight-day jaunt to China (one of three trips there he’s planning this year) and political pal and Chronicle columnist Willie Brown is with him. Chinatown boss Rose Pak is already there. No supervisors were invited. From Chris Roberts at the Examiner:

Lee will fly to Hong Kong before traveling to Beijing, where he’ll speak to students at Tsinghua University and meet government officials. He’ll then travel to the southern province of Guangdong, where he’ll meet more politicians and attempt to woo Southern China Airlines to San Francisco International Airport. The mayor will then head to Taishan before returning to San Francisco from Macau on April 7.
