Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi: Next Steps
Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi: What’s Next?
In conversation with Scott Shafer, Host, KQED’s "California Report"
Don't miss this unique opportunity to hear from one of San Francisco’s most controversial elected officials and to ask your own questions. A 28-year San Francisco resident, Sheriff Mirkarimi was twice elected supervisor from District 5 and worked for the San Francisco District Attorney's Office for nine years, specializing in white collar and environmental crimes. He is also a graduate of the San Francisco Police Academy. Mirkarimi was elected San Francisco's sheriff in November, 2011. Last spring, he was suspended by Mayor Ed Lee after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of false imprisonment related to a New Year's Eve argument with his wife. The mayor filed official misconduct charges against Sheriff Mirkarimi in an effort to remove him permanently and needed nine of 11 supervisors to vote with him. On October 9th, only 7 supervisors voted to remove the sheriff, and he was reinstated. With the mayor still refusing to talk with the sheriff, how does Sheriff Mirkarimi view his circumstances and what are his plans moving forward?
