The San Francisco Firefighter's union, Local 798, asked mayoral candidates to mark "support" or "oppose" in response to whether the candidate wanted proposed personnel changes within the current SFFD leadership.

Local 798 was referring to its Fire Chief, Joanne Hayes-White, whose removal has been called for by the union. Candidates Supervisor London Breed and former Supervisor Angela Alioto marked "support". Supervisor Jane Kim marked "support" with some clarification in her response, and former State Senator Mark Leno left the response blank.
