Police Commission loses two members 

The Police Commission could barely pull enough members together Wednesday night for a hearing as two members quit and another, the panel president, is awaiting reconfirmation.

The most shocking news is the departure of Board of Supervisors appointee Vincent Pan, a solid liberal voice who said he would be concentrating on his position as executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action.

The departure of Yvonne Lee, who was appointed by Mayor Gavin Newsom, isn’t much of a surprise as Newsom was publicly upset over her refusal to approve the use of Tasers by the Police Department.

President Joe Marshall has already been reappointed by Newsom, but he wasn’t nominated in time to be approved by the Board of Supervisors.
