November 27, 1978 is the day that San Francisco Supervisor Dan White murdered San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk.

Cyr Copertini was Mayor Moscone's appointment secretary at that time. She testified on the witness stand about how, just prior to the shooting, a "nervous, pale" Dan White appeared at the mayor's office asking to meet with Moscone. White chatted with her for a few minutes before entering the Mayor's office. Five minutes later the fatal shots were fired that left Mayor Moscone dead.

For 14 more years, Cyr Copertini continued to be the appointments secretary for other mayors and it was not until 1992 that she was released (along with many others) by the new mayor Mayor Frank Jordan.
