Mayor meets with Sparks

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom met with newly elected Police Commission President Theresa Sparks Friday afternoon, according to spokesman Nathan Ballard.

Ballard, who said he was not in the meeting, nonetheless characterized it as “a good meeting.” Sparks is an appointee of the Board of Supervisors, and was elected commission president Wednesday after her two fellow board appointees and mayoral appointee Joe Alioto Veronese voted for her in the 4-3 vote.

Newsom and Commissioner Louise Renne had wanted Commissioner Joe Marshall to be elected president. Renne quit the panel Thursday, saying she could not serve on a commission under Sparks. Marshall is the commission’s vice president.

Ballard also told the Bay Area Reporter Friday that Newsom is close to announcing Renne’s successor to the panel. He also said that the mayor has no plans to ask Veronese to step down “at this point.”
