Gordon Mar is an American politician from San Francisco. He is a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, representing District 4. Prior to joining the Board of Supervisors, Mar was a longtime labor and community activist and former Executive Director of Jobs with Justice San Francisco and the Chinese Progressive Association.[1][2][3] He is the brother of former District 1 supervisor, Eric Mar.

Mar was elected supervisor for District 4 on November 6, 2018, receiving 10,314 first preference votes (36.29 percent of all valid votes).[4] After allocation of preferences from eliminated candidates in San Francisco's ranked-choice voting system, Mar received 56.84 percent of final-round votes, compared to 43.16 percent for runner-up Jessica Ho, a political aide to the incumbent supervisor Katy Tang and a recent arrival in San Francisco.[5][1]

Mar was sworn in at the Board of Supervisors' January 8, 2019 meeting, replacing Katy Tang who declined to run for another term on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
