For 25 years, Nancy Pelosi has represented California's 12th District in the House of Representatives. The 12th District includes most of the City of San Francisco including the Bayview, Chinatown, the Mission, North Beach, Presidio, SOMA, the Sunset and many of the diverse neighborhoods that make San Francisco a vibrant and prosperous community. Rep. Pelosi served as Speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011, being the first woman to do so in American history. She first made history in November 2002 when House Democrats elected her as the first woman to lead a major political party in Congress.
