Supervisor acknowledges affair with legislative aide
July 17, 2014, 05:00 AM

An aide to a San Francisco supervisor is on leave after it was revealed Wednesday that she was romantically involved with her boss.

Supervisor John Avalos, 50, who represents the city’s District 11, including the Excelsior and other neighborhoods, is married with children. He reportedly had a relationship with top legislative aide Raquel Redondiez.

Avalos wrote in a text message Wednesday, “It’s a hard time for my family and I’m very grateful for all the people who have been actively supporting us through this difficult time with their love and counsel.”

On the supervisor’s website, Redondiez is listed as “currently on leave.”

She also helped with Avalos’ 2011 bid for mayor, in which he finished second to Mayor Ed Lee.

Avalos was elected to his District 11 seat in 2008 and re-elected to a second four-year term in 2012.

San Francisco Ethics Commission executive director John St. Croix said there is no restriction against a relationship between supervisor and aide as long as there is no favoritism displayed based on that relationship.
