Mayor Lee was an advocate for the needy, and it hearkened back to his days as a housing-rights activist back in the '70s and '80s. But he reversed that promise, claiming he was persuaded by a "Run Ed, Run" campaign manufactured by his backers.

Anni Chung, executive director of Self-Help for the Elderly in Chinatown, was among those paying tribute to Lee at City Hall.

"The impact of that loss - I don't think any words could describe our feelings right now, " Chung said. Lee, who rose to national fame for being the first Asian-American mayor of San Francisco, was a close ally of the tech community.
