San Francisco school board recall advocates cheer as election results are called at Manny’s in San Francisco on Feb. 15, 2022. (Beth LaBerge/KQED)

San Francisco voters decided overwhelmingly to recall 3 board of education members from office: Board of Education President Gabriela López and commissioners Faauuga Moliga and Alison Collins. That leaves Mayor London Breed with the unilateral decision of who should replace them.
