Lee Already Proving he Isn't Gavin Newsom

Is Ed Lee a whisker away from making history?

Ed Lee is back from Asia and has reportedly, started prepping for his new job as interim mayor. The Board of Supervisors is expected to appoint Lee to the position in a special meeting later this afternoon. 

Lee, who would be the first Chinese-American to serve as San Francisco's chief executive, is spending his day meeting with reporters and department heads to start picking away at the $360 million budget deficit.
Although Lee was a Newsom pick, he has been described by local pundits as apolitical, which is where he diverges from the Newsom machine.
