Supervisor Malia Cohen was unanimously elected president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors Tuesday, taking the helm of the city’s legislative branch at a particularly divisive time in city politics.

Cohen was nominated by Supervisor Jane Kim, who praised Cohen for her staunch advocacy for police reform, which Kim called “one of the most difficult issues in the country today.”
