Ron Nirenberg returned to a familiar mayoral seat on Saturday. But he will sit alongside three new council members – all women. Jada Andrews-Sullivan will represent District 2, Adriana Rocha Garcia will represent District 4 and Melissa Cabello Havrda will represent District 6. Together, they form the first female majority on the council in a decade.
