♪ [chime] president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> i am speaking on the topic of synthetic turf. part of the humor of "mad men" comes from the society's last follies. it is hard to see pregnant mothers binge drinking cocktails and exhaling secondhand smoke has they chew on lead paint and toys. we can find this amusing because the culture has evolved. how is it that the same society has come to believe it is a good idea to introduce tons of thai airways in the public spaces that even the manufacturers freely and knowledge there are unrelated chemicals and heavy metals. specifically for a sport like
soccer, and this is that -- necessitates children and athletes hyperventilating. this is not unique to san francisco. like a lead paint and asbestos before that, it will take time before we get to the long-term rent. for years, there've been pushing the synthetic fuels. but like the tobacco industry, they claim the health benefits of cigarettes. following the advice of the council, we are preparing for litigation and to facilitate investigative searches, we are inserting the key words, synthetic artificial turf, public and children's health hazards, and no particulates, mercury poisoning, chronic asthma, narrow and implementation, fisher
construction, recommend parks, galvanism recommended we send the office [chime] >> for the record, i am one of 37 candidates for mayor. of like to bring to your attention that i spoke before the mta before their termination. in the closed session, i called for a criminal investigation on the link between the inner office and payroll and the mta.
it must amount to $100 million. by my own calculations. hull also like to call for this board to investigate the mta agenda at in terms of how it came about that may 4 was hired, a man with a high-school diploma. not accepted in any state in the united states. a man accused of embezzlement in atlanta georgia. to the tune of 175,000, they knew about it here. a man that also was responsible for the city and county of atlanta to pay out $1.1 million a sexual harassment suit. he was responsible for it. after he took atlanta to the biggest bankruptcy in history, he has done the same for us
here. and how this came about, we will request the city attorney, by letter next week to investigate this linkage. to bring it to the surface for accountability. this is the same city attorney, by the way that is also running for mayor that has not produced up to 40 documents that i have requested. [chime] >> 1776, revolution glory. constitution of the united
states, we the people, in order to form a more perfect union established justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide a common defense, promote general welfare, secure the blessings of liberty. establishing constitutions to the united states of america. article 1, article 2, article 4, article 5. the complex the states that with a constitution referral has women pose the right to, not right to vote. the federal right of states to privileges, immunities, and racial slavery written as federal law. right to amendment, corrupting education for use of the constitution. george washington, thomas

i just walked in and you are already on public comment. you're moving along really fast. i have to tell you, i deserve the credit for this because i have walked through that area countless times. i have been of part of the village where they actually have the village on the same ground. i was walking through there and something said nothing is commemorating this very important part of history in san francisco in the world. i am asking for your vote. >> for anybody that cares about the library, i ask you to please pay attention. the library has a couple of things going.
one is the elimination of printed notices for patrons. according to this fire, starting july 1, 2011, the san francisco public library will eliminate be printed notices for reserved and overdue items. they will not be any printed notices. for those that may not have a convenient e-mail address, they will hurt them very badly. and for some patrons, it could be career ending. they owe a lot of money for overdue or build books. this was never approved by the library commission. as we raised strong objections, there were quite a number of library commissioners that were concerned about this.
they have said they will look into it again and they have not committed to stopping this program dead in its tracks. with respect to the budget, the library should be having a priority on books and open hours. after we expressed concern about the cut that the administration wanted to do, and half a million dollars in book cuts even as the overall budget increases by more than $2 million. the library commission voted hugh a lemonade and the cuts altogether.
>> i am here to encourage your enthusiastic support of designation of the vigil commemoration. i am very excited about this project, and i think the idea has been fantastic. they will leave a message for future generations of about what a few individuals are able to do. people with aids, not empowered, not intelligence necessarily, not connected change themselves to the federal building to demand the government respond.
they have this sense of hope that a lot of disenfranchise people might be -- is when we don't have hope. everything that we can do to inspire people, i think, helps for the betterment of society. these are primarily homeless people that are in the encampment for 10 years. after 30 years of effort, just

let me ask if there is any public comment on this resolution. and now, if we could have a roll call vote on the resolution as offered.

he helped organize the work flow program. responsibility for it was transferred in the early 1980's. he was on the team that implemented the work alternative program. among the first program to offer an alternative to incarceration. he was chosen to be on the transition team. designed specifically to incorporate the principles of direct supervision. the department's first jail. he was among the first to join the elite services units and is revered for his exceptional skill on the softball field. the sergeant, the department in july of 1990 and is well-known
for professionalism and marked with kindness and compassion throughout the deputy sheriffs. she encountered people in their worst moments and guided them through the process with courtesy and dignity. as a deputy, she mastered complex court processes that help people navigate through wage garnishment and other stressful events always doing so with great empathy. to hell, i think, bestow on this honor, the center of the chief deputy. president chiu: if you could speak closer to the microphone, thanks.
>> he regrets he could not be here today in honoring. members of the share of's department, a combined 50 years of service to the city and county of san francisco, i know that i am joined by colleagues what i say we have all enjoyed working with you. we wish you a very happy in a long retirement. supervisor mirkarimi: if you would like to say anything, feel free. >> we appreciate you speaking for my wife. she is my boss at work and my boss at home. thank you very much.
