New District 6 Supervisor Matt Dorsey
By Mayor London Breed
My fellow San Franciscans,
Recently, I appointed Matt Dorsey to serve on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to represent District 6. The appointment comes at a critical time when the City is experiencing an addiction and overdose crisis that is impacting many neighborhoods, including District 6.
Matt is a respected City government veteran who served on the staff of the San Francisco Police Department as the communications director. Previously, Matt served for fourteen years in the San Francisco City Attorney’s Office, where he worked to support groundbreaking cases around marriage equality, education access, public health, tenants rights, and worker protections. Matt is no stranger to working on issues around community safety as his work on addressing hate crime dated back in 1991, up until recently working with the community on the yellow whistle project so that seniors feel safe and connected.
Matt is uniquely positioned to understand our city government and its current challenges — professionally and personally, from public health to public safety. San Francisco needs a strong voice and forceful advocate to help lead our efforts through a drug crisis that is costing lives and devastating neighborhoods — including many in District 6.
In addition to leading on solutions around substance use and recovery, Matt will also bring his personal and professional experience to focus on the issues impacting San Francisco and District 6, including building more housing, protecting tenants, addressing transportation and traffic congestion, supporting small businesses, advancing civil rights, and supporting San Francisco’s recovery from the pandemic.
As an accomplished City government veteran, and as a member of the recovery community, Matt is ready to not only make the hard decisions, but to understand the impacts those decisions will have on people’s lives.
I trust Matt to work cooperatively, creatively, and effectively to help solve the problems facing our city.
