June 15 2004 11:00 PM ET
San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom on Thursday named Jeff Sheehy, deputy director of the University of California, San Francisco's AIDS Research Institute, as his volunteer HIV/AIDS policy adviser. "Jeff has been at the forefront of HIV/AIDS issues in San Francisco for over a decade," Newsom told the San Francisco Chronicle. "His background and work in this field will be a tremendous asset in our quest to fight this epidemic." Sheehy also played a key role in the drafting of the city's 1997 Equal Benefits Ordinance, which requires contractors working for the city to offer domestic-partner benefits to their gay and lesbian employees.
