9:15 pm
our population, of course is women, and we are finding that these joint commission meetings are particularly useful in informing our work going forward together, and also as a commission and a department and so we want to thank you for all of the work that has gone into putting this together and we are looking forward to a great dialogue. >> thank you. >> we can go on to the next item,. >> yes, and commissioners before we announce the resolutions that are coming forward, resolution a, and b, will be voted on by both commissions, but separately, and so we will call the vote and the third resolution will be voted on by the commission of the status of women for the public.

9:17 pm

9:18 pm
>> and okay. so we will receive the comments, and if i could, i want to thank all of the commissioners to be here today and but particularly to roma guy and roma has been an incredible leader in our department and the mentoring for the staff, and how much you are and how special you are to the health department and to many of the staff and the executive staff, particularly of the health department and thank you so much for all of your service and your commitment to the community. and the woman's community, particularly. >> and i'm emily murase on the director of the status of women and pleased to be here as a guest of the health commission and i want to say that roma guy is a giant in the woman's movement here in san francisco and she has been a part of every major initiative from the
9:19 pm
woman's foundation to the woman's building, and we owe her a tremendous debt of gratitude and i had the privilege of serving her on the community board on the state school of social work which offers the steady supply of the graduate interns for our office and it has been a pleasure working with her and i can't think of a better way to acknowledge her here than at this joint commission. >> and i am here on behalf of our commission and we are more than pleased to be able to again, recognize commissioner guy, her work, and most were not here, at the time, on the commission, and for the i would say, the first strategic plan to be put forth as the pioneer effort and the fact that we needed one, and she has also serviced on the major committees and of the mayor on behalf of our health commission, and on behalf of city government.
9:20 pm
and so, all of way from also, the challenges dealing with the southerner and the saint lukes issues to even our, to even the planning for the campos initiative and all, she has been in every one of our major initiatives over these last two decades, i think that the commission has been fortunate, to have her formally as a member of the commission, and to have her, informally, then in or on her own, continue to benefit, to the city, and benefit us, with her wisdom. and so, the commission thanks you, very much. >> commissioner i would like to say something. >> thank you very much. i am having pleased to support this resolution, for roma she was one of the first persons to reach out to me when i came to
9:21 pm
san francisco. she has had a eye on woman's rights and issues and i applaud her for that and admire her for her service. >> thank you. >> i would like to just congratulate roma guy and she is so deserving and let's say that someone said that she was a giant, i want to say tiny but mighty, because she is, she is so persist ant and that is a lesson that we all need to learn is that you can get things done by being persist ent and she is everywhere so i want to thank you for paving the way and allowing us to carry forth, the torch of all of the great work that you have done, and in particular, i have received the phone calls from other of your colleagues, or former colleagues who could not be here and in particular, the commissioner of this and she is up in abdomening men abdomening men toe today.
9:22 pm
sacramento today. >> roma we are family. and i have known roma pretty much from the day that i set foot in san francisco, and some time in the last century. she knew me before my dread locks. and i have always taken great pride in and describing roma, and as a relation to me. i say that i am a child of roma guy. and that i have sat at her knee, and have learned many things about san francisco and her love for san francisco, but, the woman's movement toward the duration for all women. and not only here in the san francisco bay area. and to the internationally.
9:23 pm
and so as commissioner soo expressed, just a tiny and just the corridors of san francisco, and and also, sometimes we have been fooled by the year of the dreadlocks by roma and we don't always agree on everything, but we always know that there is a great deal of love, and respect, because we are both committed to doing the right thing and i have learned a lot from you. and you are more deserving of this and all of the other accolades coming your way. >> and i just want to add, and everything, that the commissioners have said so far, and i can, and i can attest to the international part of it, because, you know, like one of the few places that i did not expect to run into too many of
9:24 pm
the san francisco colleagues, that have been in the international conferences, and, and the departments of both attending, and you know, like the international conference, and in dc, i believe, and i think that what strikes me the most and what inspires me the most about is her passion and i don't know what her passion that drives her energy or her energy that drives her passion. and i think that only she can answer that, but that is really inspiring for me, and you know, like there are few people that i would really consider an icon but roma is definitely one of them, and i can only hope that i can have, the same kind of passion for my community, and you know, and to be able to continue to do my work for my community, and on behalf of, you know, the san francisco
9:25 pm
family, like, roma does,. >> was there any public comment for this item. >> and receive for the vote then, and i am told that both commissioners each one will have to vote separately and so that it becomes each commission's resolution and you will start with your commission, first? >> yeah. >> okay. >> and so we will have the health commission, vote first, all of those in favor of the resolution, please say aye. >> aye. >> all of those opposed it will pass you unanimously. >> on the status of women, all of those in favor? >> aye. >> opposed? >> unanimous. >> and thank you, commissioners
9:26 pm
and when i tried to co-here with my energy, commissioner chung, and when i was in the fourth grade and the nuns called my parents and they said, what are we going to do, she can't just run around the school yard 40 times before we call recess and so i ended up taking on the violin, and baseball. and i started up in the northern maine like the baseball players and let me show you how, and i think that we have life energy and we just need to find where we want to put it, and i did, with your
9:27 pm
help, i don't think that i know and i know that the health commissioners are better from the commission and at the department of commission on the status of women, i should say, and but, then when i got here, i am like, oh, i could say something, teasing, and just about everybody, here. and so you know, when the commission on the status of women, was formed, it was a task force, originally, and i wanted to go, and ask some funders for battered women shelter, where i met, former commissioner melara and now the commissioner, and congratulations to the police force and we were both pretenny bopers and we were there as
9:28 pm
volunteers with our nap, sacks trying to respond and so that was a long time ago and, i think that it is 40 years now, and so, it was the beginning of that and we were a part of the civil rights movement and we want to acknowledge that. and then for the and then you became a commission, and then it is really a thrill to see today, but, of this joint commission, and then this effort, because a place was built in the electoral and the governing system for both the health commission and the commission on the status of women because there was no commission there was no health commission, not so long ago. i was in my 20s when, it was
9:29 pm
katherine dodd and kate, cline, right? and said, that we have and we have to do something, because they are going to shut down, san francisco general. and that is really, what happened, and you know, we have to form a commission, and so then, i think that commissioner (inaudible) was probably in medical school when that happens. she is our senior. right? and so, any way, i really acknowledge your significant contribution dr. chow, because san francisco general, and its relationship to public health in the safety net, and your seniority mattered in all of these years. and certainly, at that time, director garcia you were maybe graduating from high school, i don't know, but it was before you were a community organizer in watsonville that was for sure, but for me it was just
9:30 pm
like a thrill, and i just, i just want to say, one thing, and you know, as the community organizer and i first got here, and and someone said, you know, we need to put more gay people on the health commission and it can't just be gay men and so someone came to me and said, and you know, that your partner, dion jones and she is a nurse at san francisco general and she is doing incredible work on the emerging aids, and we don't have a definition about it, and it is the aids epidemic and we would like her to be on the commission? you are kidding she does not qualify. and i said, well, why not. and so this is our fellow, democrats, and i said, because she is an employee of the health department. and i said, you should ask me. and i said, but you don't qfy
