Following the death of Mayor Ed Lee in December 2017, Farrell served as mayor for six months. He succeeded Breed—who was named acting mayor in the immediate aftermath of Lee’s passing—through a controversial appointment by the Board of Supervisors, where Farrell served for seven years representing the Marina District.

Farrell has some catching up to do in the mayor’s race, with multiple serious contenders already in the race. Breed, Supervisor Ahsha Safaí and nonprofit founder Daniel Lurie have all been running campaigns since last year.

Farrell’s associates did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
