John Heilman was a city councilman for 36 years and was once part of what the Times called "one of the most liberal in the state" of California. He helped usher in a new era of progressive politics for the city in the mid-1980s as a member of the nation's first city council with an openly gay majority, passing rent control policies, limits on evictions, and bans on discrimination against gay residents.
