Explanation: The official translation for the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco is 市参议会; "Supervisor" is 市参议员. The local Chinese dailies have been using 市参事会 and 市参事. In California, the Board of Supervisor is the county-level legislative body, and the City Council is at the city level. (San Francisco is both a city and a county.)
