Lee's office confirmed his death in a statement, writing, "It is with profound sadness and awful grief that we confirm that Mayor Edwin M. Lee passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 12 at 1:11 Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital".

In 2014, he brokered a deal to let Alphabet's Google and other big companies use city bus stops for their private commuter buses, so long as they paid a modest fee. Mayor Lee was not only a staunch supporter and a true advocate, but also a participant and ally. "That includes our LGBTQ communities as well as our immigrant community and all of San Francisco".

Lee's alliance with tech firms put him at odds with large blocs of liberal voters in the famously left-leaning city, where Lee faced savage criticism over the cost of housing and an influx of white, wealthy residents.

"The City of San Francisco and State of California have lost a key ally in the fight for LGBTQ civil rights and social justice".

"I am floored. I can't believe he's gone".

And when Lee died unexpectedly on Tuesday, hours after collapsing while shopping at a Safeway store near his home, the whole world paid attention - not just to mourn the father of two, but to ponder the loss of a steady hand in a city of worldwide outcome. Ron Conway, a venture capitalist, formed an independent political action committee on his behalf and raised nearly $700,000 from executives such as former Facebook President Sean Parker and Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff.

Our thoughts are with Lee's loved ones during this hard time. "It's so easy to point fingers to this group or that group", Svane said.
