SAN FRANCISCO - (April 27, 2007): Theresa Sparks, Good Vibrations president and CEO, was sworn in on Thursday, April 26th for a second four-year term as a member of the San Francisco Police Commission.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors confirmed Ms. Sparks re-appointment to the Police Commission last week in a unanimous vote of confidence.

Attended by a delegation of elected officials and representatives of the Mayor of San Francisco, the official swearing in ceremony was administered by Supervisor Tom Ammiano in a ceremony held at the Hotel Monaco.

“Theresa Sparks represents the best in a leader, a teacher and a role model as a Police Commissioner in the transgender community and the City of San Francisco,” Ammiano said.

The ceremony for Ms. Sparks was held at the beginning of a new City-sponsored program initiating a recently approved economic empowerment program designed to help reduce unemployment and underemployment in San Francisco’s transgender community.

“The transgender community is among the most disenfranchised groups throughout the United States, and this is the first program of its kind in the anywhere in the country,” Sparks said. “I am honored to represent the transgender community and our entire city as a Police Commissioner.”

In addition, Sparks asks that visitors to the Good Vibrations web site visit her upcoming blog. As a blogger, she'll join the ranks of Doctors Carol Queen & Betty Sullivan, as well as a large number of GV Staff writers.

“It is a little unusual, even in politically-correct San Francisco, for the head of a company like Good Vibration to also serve in a leadership role in law enforcement,” said Dr. Carol Queen, Good Vibrations sexologist and member of the company’s Board of Directors.

“As our great Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi would say, ‘San Francisco values at their absolute best,’” Queen concluded.

Prior to her initial appointment to the Police Commission in 2004, Ms. Sparks served two four-year terms as a member of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission.

The San Francisco Police Commission is the seven-member civilian oversight board responsible for developing policy for the San Francisco Police Department. It also conducts hearings and administers discipline in cases of alleged police officer misconduct.

Ms. Sparks has been President and CEO of Good Vibrations for two years, having previously served as the company’s chief financial officer. She originally joined the Good Vibrations staff in 2001.
