San Francisco, CA — Yesterday, Mayor London N. Breed’s appointee Jane Natoli was sworn in as the newest member of the Airport Commission, the five-member body charged with establishing the policies by which the airport operates. Subject to the approval, amendment, or rejection of the Board of Supervisors, the Commission has exclusive authority to plan and issue revenue bonds for airport-related purposes.
Natoli is an advocate for safe and affordable transit and the LGBTQ+ community. She currently serves on the Board of the San Francisco LGBT Center, and she will be the first trans person to serve on the Airport Commission.
“I’m proud to welcome Jane Natoli to the Airport Commission,” said Mayor Breed. “She is a leading advocate for reliable transit and is deeply committed to fighting for the LGBTQ community. I am confident that her perspective and commitment to our City will benefit this commission.”
Natoli moved to San Francisco in 2013 and became involved in local politics and community organizing. Since 2019, Natoli has served as a Mayoral appointee on the Citizens’ General Obligation Bond Oversight Committee.
“It’s an honor to be appointed to the Airport Commission and I want to thank Mayor London Breed for nominating me,” says Natoli. “I look forward to bringing not only my oversight experience from serving on other boards and commissions but my perspective as a trans individual. San Francisco is an LGBTQ+ capital and SFO is the first entry point for so many people visiting and moving here and I want to ensure that SFO is as welcoming and inclusive to all folks as it can be.”
“I am proud to see that Mayor Breed has uplifted a member of the trans community to such a prestigious commission. As someone who fights for representation of trans women in leadership, I look forward to seeing all of the good Jane’s experience will bring to the Airport Commission,” said Khilynn Fowler, Interim Supervisor for Trans Thrive at San Francisco Community Health Center.
Natoli is a Financial Crimes Analyst at Stripe, where she specializes in anti-money laundering investigations. She has a B.S. from Iowa State University and is a resident of the Inner Richmond.
