gavin newsom is heading to sacramento to be the lieutenant governor and san francisco city supervisors tried to decide who his replacement should be. we look at the names and what is ahead for the city supervisors. dan kerman joins us live outside san francisco city hall with the top story. any decision? >> reporter: no decision. they met for five hours and we don't have an interim mayor. the first thing that happened at 5:00 to in afternoon, the board's attorneys said they couldn't select a mayor because gavin newsom is still the mayor. but the board decided to select
someone. the majority on the board thought they had the six votes needed to select mike hennessey but they only got five votes. they were hoping that one of the supervisors would come over to their side. but duffity called for a half hour recess and he contacted gavin newsom. when he came back not only did ed lee have his vote but he had a total of six votes and those who are not part of the majority. at that point they called for another recess. bev said this is why he decided to support ed lee. >> one of the things i thought about is whoever comes in to do this job has to balance a lot of things besides the budget. they have a progressive majority on the board and doing a good job of working with the city departments and making the city work over the next year. and i believe that ed can do
that. and i think he is somebody that had a life career in civil rights that by any measure would qualify him. >> reporter: when they came back from the recess it was suggested they would vote and that ed lee would be the new interim mayor. but that vote never took place. they had various conversations one was chris daily who was angry that the choice of mike hennessey was not selected. >> we had an opportunity and we made the biggest fumble in san francisco political history, the blame probably goes to many places but certainly it rests squarely on the shoulders of president david chu and i'm willing to point others out as well. i will have to run an establishment but i will remain active and involved after this
meeting. i will haunt you. i will politically haunt you. for the biggest fumble in the history of san francisco politics. it's on like donkey kong. >> david chu supported ed lee as well as several others on the board. the final vote did not take place because the progressive majority asked to delay the vote because they have not had conversations with ed lee to find out what kind of mayor he wanted to be. lee indicated he was not interested in the job only recently to change his mind. so they voted to delay the vote again. now they will vote on friday at 3:00 p.m. but that will not be the final vote either. whatever they vote on friday
they will have to do it again when the new board is its down after the mayor leaves office and only then will the vote be able to be certified. that is the latest from san francisco city hall. dan kerman, kron 4 news. the raiders are looking for their sixth head coach in eight years. tom cable was told tonight the team will not extend his contract. cable led the raiders to their best record since 2002. they were undefeated within their division. the move comes the same day that the raiders granted the 49ers to interview the head coordinator for the head coaching job. new details tonight about an officer-involved shooting in san francisco. police shot a man in a wheelchair. they say it happened after he attacked an officer with a knife.
