Mayor London Breed’s pick for Public Defender, Manohar Raju, received praise from the LGBT community and its straight allies. Niki Solis, a lesbian who is a Deputy Public Defender, said that she believed Breed “made a great decision,” and that Raju would “continue the work of tackling the injustices in our system.” Petra DeJesus said Raju was “someone who understands the value of the public defender's office and is committed to providing quality services to the city.”
