Statement from Mayor London Breed on the Resignation of San Francisco Public Utilities Commission General Manager Harlan Kelly
San Francisco, CA — Mayor London N. Breed today issued the following statement following the resignation of San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) General Manager Harlan Kelly.
“Today, I accepted Harlan Kelly’s resignation as General Manager of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. The allegations detailed in the Federal Investigation conducted by the US Attorney’s Office are disturbing and unacceptable for anyone serving in our government, let alone the leader of one of our largest departments. As public officials, we have to hold ourselves to the highest standard and put the public good before all else. As I’ve said from the beginning, any City employee involved in issues related to this investigation needs to cooperate and come forward with any information. At this time, SFPUC Deputy General Manager Michael Carlin will serve as Acting General Manager of the SFPUC and I have asked the SFPUC Commission to undergo a national search for a permanent replacement.”
