3:30 pm
secure committees goes against every value that we as a country have and it certainly goes against the idea that in san francisco you are treated the same. it doesn't matter what your immigration status is. so thank you supervisor avalos. i look forward to this past very shortly. >> thank you supervisor campos. supervisor job >> first of all i want to thank supervisor avalos and the immigrant rights community and the broader communities that are supporting this immigrant rights measure. it is something i think san francisco should be proud of. hopefully we'll be able to get it done in short order. at two items. first of all in a memorial for nicholas niko javier salish. niko grew up in perl heights and he was a significant athlete. when he was at mission dolores he played basketball and baseball and he went to sacred heart where he played football. he qualified for the junior olympics and competed in
3:31 pm
javelin shot put and discus. he attained his journeyman's license as a plumber and steamfitters local 487. over the past year niko's adventure spirit to thailand where he found his niche teaching aims to underprivileged kids in thailand in a couple weeks ago he was traveling in thailand to teach his kids when he was killed by a driver. he has many friends and family including good friends of mine, and on behalf of the board i like for us to adjourn in his memory. also, today i'm introducing an ordinance to further expand our non-potable water ordinance which i had sponsored last year which was adopted. our thank supervisor mark for his cosponsorship as your as moses cosponsorship on this year on
3:32 pm
this measure. the non-potable water permit we have is a volunteer program to streamline permitting process for our buildings to collect treat and use alternative water sources for non-potable uses. the legislation that i'm introducing today extends this ordinance to cover two or more parcels to share alternate and non-potable water sources. to help create an additional fee to cover additional staff time and is often necessary to review more complicated plans an additional site inspection. san francisco has been a leader in water conversation. this is a program to expand our leadership in green building policies to reduce water consumption, reduce pressure on our city sewer system, and diversify our water supply. approximately 40 or 60% of our water can be recycled for non-potable uses an implementation of on-site uses of non-potable water could decrease our city's water and sewer bills considerably. today, we got a project committed to the puc with the
3:33 pm
potential of saving 6,000,000 gallons of water each year and since we adopted last year's program has been increasing interest from customers for both the design and development committee and other city departments to encourage neighborhood or one reason i hope we can move this forward. to amend our non-potable water ordinance to address regulations in what i've described. the rest of the items i will submit >> thank you mr. president. supervisor: >> supervisor: >> one request today that i would like to supervisor" and i would like to do and in the morning to recognize the memory of ms. beverly jones hovered adams. beverly was longtime educator with the semper cisco unified school district and she died recently on july 20 of complications from cancer. she was born in cincinnati ohio. she has a younger brother who
3:34 pm

3:35 pm
daughter kelly as well as her brother and significant other robert crenshaw. there are many cousins and a host of friends who will miss her lively presence and dynamic personality. thank you. the rest estimate >> thank you supervisor:. supervisor kim >> i just want to thank supervisor of lucifer's introduction of legislation today. i've a lot to say but it's well articulated by both supervisor avalos campos and am looking for to support this and the rest estimate >> thank you supervisor kim. supervisor mark >> thank you. i'm also very proud to support the due process for all ordinance and supervisor avalos and immigrant rights communities advocacy. i want to introduce a resolution today following up on my hearing with the many others were aggressively moving to increase bicycling as a
3:36 pm
transportation mode. has gone up 70% in our city for the last five years, but were struggling to increase our share from the 4% of current vehicle trips to 20% of all trips by 2020. it's not only because it helps recharge the chart transportation greenhouse gas emotion goes but promotes healthier and more vibrant and livable city for all. one of the remaining hurdles for our city has been increasing biking is a thorny problem of bicycle theft that are growing in our city. as regarding good services and safety committee hearing that i chaired in it we reviewed a report from the budget and legislative analyst's office and fred russo did a wonderful job with a report on best practices on countering bike theft. what best practices exist to combat the problem and as i mentioned
3:37 pm
the issue is real into disco aggregate i've had several bicycles stolen from my garage and many others in city hall haven't given me many stories of how it's growing among themselves, their families and friends as well. bicycle theft have increased at the same rate as the biking mode share over the past few years has increased. if we are to dramatically increase biking in our city, we had to address the problem of bike theft quickly and efficiently. over 4000 bikes stolen each year is worth about $4.5 million and that's a rate that is higher or on par with the theft of iphones and smartphones in our city. when bicycles are bound by the police also only about 60% are returned to their owners because of difficulties in contacting the owner and also other competitions could additionally, the fda reported that are hearing that there are only 3000 bicycle racks to meet the needs of 75,000 daily trips
3:38 pm
made by bikes each year. so, this resolution of publishers three goals from the hearing brashly 75,000 daily trips made by bikes. the resolution, which is three goals from our hearing. first, it directs the mta to develop a plan to greatly expand the availability of bike parking in the city. so the ordinance that we passed today is critical but also working with the mta to expand parking even more. but only bike racks also secured parking areas like my cat cages and lockers. particularly along transit hubs. second, it directs the department the police department, to standardize the best practices from individual stations to citywide and to establish bicycle registration and education outreach program along with community partners like and vice semper cisco bicycle goes. together this will help us prevent bike theft and in the event they do occur
3:39 pm
help services and recover their property good things much for the committee groups were depressed might cosponsor is supervisor wendy reed and david compost. also, i made using a resolution calling august 3, ending the friends of cabrillo program playground for the reopening of cabrillo playground and clubhouse. august 3 would be cabrillo playground day in the city. i want to thank fans of cabrillo playground especially dr. jody garnett and debbie joseph and many others have been working on this project. since voters +2008 park bond it's going to be an incredible opening. i ask you to join us on saturday, august 3 from one o'clock to 4:00 pm. at the outer richmond and president you and i are introducing a resolution endorsing to 2013 annual language axis ordinance compliance report and we held a hearing a couple weeks ago where our office of immigrant affairs and community engagement
3:40 pm
and many community partners of language axis north testified in how we could improve language equality and among departments in our cities. super introducing this resolution today and lastly i'm introducing a hearing on the horrible tour bus or open air care about tour bus accident that occurred in the richmond district this past week. i want to call people's attention on friday this past friday in open top tour bus had a terrible accident were five tories were injured, one seriously when a double-decker tour bus drove into the waning telephone wire 12 avenue at erie and the richmond district. the bus driver had deviated from the doors normal route was traveling north on 12 avenue the bus struck the wire. the letter hit the windshield of the top of the level of the bus struck multiple passengers. as the line was pulled very tight. it was a horrifying example of injuries. five people were treated for injuries that included cuts and bruises and scratches. the forward end up
3:41 pm
being taken to general whose one person critically wounded with her face really really torn up. this is, by far, the most awful accident to occur involving these types of tour buses but it's not the first time they've caused problems in our neighborhoods. these buses are barely regulated with very few rules to guide them in the records for residence whose streets these buses use frequently. another part of the richmond conversation regarding private buses that park in front of a playground and preschools have been very difficult to move forward and nearly impossible to find solutions to some of plotting the mta for immediately putting forward a proposal to manage the private silicon valley commuter buses, but that come together and working with the mta to present at our hearing
3:42 pm
at the neighborhood services and safety committee in september. key strategies for controlling what streets these buses can operate on how to make them suffer and where they can load and unload passengers. additional safety measures they can take to protect our residents and towards an visitors. thank you everyone the rest also lectureship thank you. all those items would be appropriately referred. mr. present that concludes will call for introductions >> thank you. when we now go to general public comments. hashem sorry supervisor liturgy need to be referred? >> i like to make a motion >> okay >> i like to move we rescind the vote on item 39. >> supervisor linda has made a motion to rescind the vote on item 3 and is there second to that motion? second second by supervisor:. when you call vote on the motion to rescind. can we take the motion to rescind without objection? the motion to rescind passes. then on item 39 is there any discussion? rollcall vote >> item 39 >>[roll call]

3:48 pm
democracy. of the essence of that destruction is the suppression of the openness and accountability that would normally be unsupported by democratic practices and principles. i've mentioned several times jeweled gomez president of violated someone's right to make public comments. this is the actual recording:[recording].it goes without saying that this victim was not a donor. it was so obvious that this lady had absolute right to speak that the ethics commission unanimously found the conduct both a willful in flagrant violation and below the standard of decency constituting official misconduct. after the library posted on the website this recording of jewel romance plotting revenge against a
3:49 pm
citizen, also not me:[recording].mr. mayer, edwin lee has made no response to the ethics commission recommendation that she be terminated even after two letters from the ethics commission requested a response. when the mayor sends a message that you're stealing money from public assets the rules don't apply, he is attacking the social covenant that are committees exist based on trust and mutual honesty and of course the lies cost more than the money and having me arrested doesn't solve anything. thank you. >> thank you. next shift next
3:50 pm
speaker. >> good evening supervisors. my 2 min. talk is to include elder abuse. target individuals in america who are women and are surviving. noise pollution on franklin avenue, and architectural design of the new buildings. i am betty tillman, retired unified school district. my older son is a firefighter. my youngest son who is 37 years old was born in kaiser. we invest a talk at wallenberg high school. i'm 60 years old. i moved into 701
3:51 pm
golden gate near don rogers senior community. as district 6 where supervisor came i must say he has done a marvelous job in that district. however, i do stand here and have to bring some negativity to the job which he has done, but i have to talk about the experience because my experience that only may include me but may include many other women, who are being abused. so i have been sodomized. i have had i have been raped. i had been vandalized. i've just been abused with my civil and human rights. something has to be done about this. i have gone to the active adult protective services. to no avail. nothing
3:52 pm
happened. i went to san francisco women against rape. to no avail. nothing has happened. i've got to legal help for the elder and they said they don't take cat cases like mine. there am i to go to stop the harassment, to stop the abuse, to stop being my rights being taken away, and i am here asking you for help. >> thank you. next >> this bill sci you. yesterday outside of our negotiations and one president roxanne sanchez broke it down like this: our chief negotiator tom harkin intentionally created the conditions for strike by surface bargaining a technique designed not to make progress. use the strikes create a backlash against the workers. this negotiation style is not welcome in the bay area and to hold that ransom the public commuters, and workers without pay is unconscionable. as you well know on july 5 bar unions
3:53 pm
return to work to spend 30 days mediated negotiations and to avoid further disruptions of park service but now more than halfway into this contract extension it has become clear that parts management and achievement negotiator thomas hawk, are not serious about pursuing real negotiations. with no movement from bart management in three weeks we are very concerned that part management and thomas hawk i once again surface bargaining toward another strike. we ask you, supervisors, to for help to make sure bart bargains in good faith to a second strike can be averted. while those of us represent our workers are prepared and ready to meet every hour of every day between now and august 5, due to mr. hawks unavailability targeting
3:54 pm
is only scheduled for four days before the expiration of the contract. we believe that management scorched earth strategy is being prosecuted with specific intent of subverting subverting the collective bargaining process. this revelation was discussed even an editorial in own san francisco chronicle this morning. i quote "it's insulting to the unions need to feel transit agency taking their proposal seriously and bargaining in good faith. it's also with me everyone at the table working as hard as they can to hammer out a solution." thank you supervisor john obelisk on a hearing on this matter. i would've for each of you % >> thank you. i want to welcome public supervisor daly is the chamber. next speaker >> good evening. something different. a little different
3:55 pm
anyway. i believe that the nature and character of a country's population is just as important as the country's political system. there is nothing as beautiful at the dawn of a new day as the sun rises to reawaken the beauty of life and living. it exposes the thing that creeps around in the darkness. some of this pop culture of ours worshiped the dead and the macabre. by glorification of the mafia through the sopranos and the godfathers. i shot a man in reno just to watch him die. the man in black janet johnny cash. black cop oh cottages of course do not see and fascism were black. i won't go to what's happening in this country. in my day, we were intelligent enough to know that the black hats were the bad guys. there
3:56 pm
are some that instead of smelling the flowers would rather smell the manure. thank you. >> next speaker. >> good evening supervised. thank you so much for your support today. this emphasis go domestic violence consortium was so honored to join our brothers and sisters in the immigrant rights movement today. i want to thank supervisor: for hosting a press conference, supervisor avalos for introducing this groundbreaking legislation. ending secure communities has been the top priority for the domestic violence community across the country for three years. we tried it at the federal level, survivors of domestic violence testified in congress that they had been deported. we tried it on the state level. we are seeing a similar number on the
3:57 pm
end that's watered down and were to be possibly sign this year. so this is the place. this is ground zero for secure communities to be deconstructed in san francisco. we are so proud to be part of it. secure communities not only puts every one of us at risk but i'll put survivors of domestic violence and their children at risk. to call for help and end up in deportation with your children in foster care or with abusive partner is something that many survivors will not risk. they will stay in dangerous situations rather than call because they are afraid of secure community. this is a public safety risk to all of us. so, today's legislation is a huge step forward. per san francisco the state the nation and the citizens of the world. we look forward to this journey. thank you >> thanks. next speaker
3:58 pm
>> jesus said it greater witness than john the baptist and he said there was never a man born as great as john the baptist. this would include the great felix, the roman procurator in the great book of acts isaiah smitten with leprosy temple of lord to offer incense. high priest enabled by the power of the lord in the fourth gospel 11th chapter to make his incredible fashion. truly a descriptor said the divine sentence in the lives of the king is now transgressive not in judgment. father of the fable bore him six children.
