Chan Bids Farewell to Council

by Elizabeth Ruiz

Elisa Chan bids farewell to her City Council Colleagues as she steps down to focus on her campaign for the State Senate. 

"I'll miss this place.  I will not miss some of the things," she said with a chuckle Thursday as she said goodbye.

Chan was at the center of a controversy after she was heard making anti-gay comments  during a secretly-recorded meeting. 

The discussion stemmed from a discussion of the addition of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders to the protected categories under the city's nondiscrimination ordinance. 

Thursday, she cordially addressed Councilman Diego Bernal, who authored the revised ordinance.

"We don't agree on a lot of things, but as you said, we also made a lot of accomplishments and I really enjoyed your input during the past term on economic development," she said. 

City Council will appoint a replacement to represent District 9 until a special election in May and Chan urged them to select a conservative, independent voice. 

"Hopefully, you'll consider someone who can represent the conservative values of District 9," Chan said.
