12:36 am
today. >> yeah. >> (clapping.) >> thank you. >> thank you i want to shear some words before why the ordinance before us is too important for so many people in this this room in the 20th century our government made a choice determined a public education k through 12 was fundamental to our citizenry and a workable nation this is public education should be free and universal to everyone in the 20th century in large part because of legislature to make an extensive in human capital america became great i'm the last person to invoke the words
12:37 am
of the president-elect trump but what that means it make our country great good paying jobs require a dilemma diploma to give americans to climb got middle-income and stay there but in the loss or last thirty years innovation and temp has gone ahead of our public education by 20204070 of all-american jobs require a post training certificate or degree and politicians are taking note of that in 2017 president obama to make king free kentucky and others have implemented free community college in their state bernie sanders and hillary clinton campaigned on a platform that community college should be free as calls to policymakers it
12:38 am
is important we i'd like to take the opportunity examine and reexamine the tools we consider fundamental to allowing our citizens the best opportunity a fighting chance to be preview members of our society i'll make the case to the board of supervisors and to the mayor's office this should conduct making community college free i've heard questions one i don't isn't that program tested and why should the founder of facebook go to city college for free if his or her so, so choose why subsidies his education i've heard the question why should we phase this program in and the last question to michael city college free not required by the
12:39 am
language i thought i'll address the first yes, if i've put forward an ordinance before the board of supervisors we will now begin to test k through 12 public education i'll be run out of the room yet why should we subsidies the public go education for the children of the founder of facebook because we believe that k through 12 is a public good one that you'll have society benefits from and that we all gain when kids graduate if high school i'll state a much more compelling reason why kink should be free i don't believe that a high school diploma is enough to give individuals the tools and resources to have the opportunities to succeed in san francisco or in this this country day and weren't our president-elect trump will not state carrier jobs with requires a high school
12:40 am
diploma, in fact, he doesn't save those jobs regardless of what we said over the last few weeks i want to talk about the the elephant in the room in the policy room of most cities nation wide that's the income and wealthy gap cities nation wide are seeing a rapidly growing gap in san francisco we have the faster gap according to the berkley institution according our our own human services agency data our income gap rivals a third-world country and a little bit better than the country of guam the middle-income here in san francisco is shrinking between 1990 and 2012 those make between one and $50,000 a year choose 45
12:41 am
percent of the population the 340 percent day and meanwhile the percentage making under 25 percentage has grown and love one hundred dollars has grown in 1970 the middle-class anti numbered the middle-income today in the country those living on the poverty line and wealthy outnumber of middle-income none can go - we see this on the streets we see when we see tents lined up next to condolences with household making 200 plus thousand dollars a year not luxury the market-rate we see it when we see homeless outing outside of the quarters of
12:42 am
goldstein we want to reverse this trend no better way than by investing in our citizens and rays the likelihood of conceding in the bay area and let's not not only increase the chances to making it to middle-income if usual struggling to stay here higher education is 0 not a death sentence now the students have the largest student debt it is shameful to raise and family and one day maybe a decent pension we have a legacy in san francisco of being bold and progressive we're one of the first cities to the country that
12:43 am
marry gay couples even though it is against the law and universal health care and the first city in the country so is that all workers in san francisco should make at the minimum $15 an hour by 2018 that's heartbreaking time here in the country for many americans who believe in equality trumps rise to make america great promised discrimination is krish8 hard for many of us to swallow i think your country needs san francisco more than ever to be the beacon of light and this sth should be investment for all of us and not just some of us and second our responsible grows because we're one of the most we're one of the wealthiest
12:44 am
cities in the word that means we can't only dream up but afford to pay for them many municipalities across the country would love to do this can't afford to fan sisters for their city as we can here today so i argue that free city college shouldn't be tested and phased in we should make that happen this year because we can i want to address the final question which is are we obligated to dedicate this for city college and a promise to the citizens i want to go over the history of the policy last december at exactly this time i transferred the drafting of an ordinance that increases our real estate luxury transfer tax and called this a share package we should assess those who have proved the most to pay a little
12:45 am
bit more to make san francisco for others if you're fortunate to be one of the few individuals that can sell a building of a home for $5 million or more hard to argue it is based on our sole work the reason property is to softball is because we made the city great that everyone wants to live and work getting the value of our property we're asking you to sharing back into the city and into the community as we created that zaul to help to make the city for all of us next 4 months drafting this is how we can invest the $44 million that that revenue measure was expected to generate and supplement talking in the community and reaching out the
12:46 am
obvious choice given the bodies with the supervisors is affordable housing but we passed a $360 million housing bond and labor approached our office instead of subsidizing why not put more money into the san franciscans and labor counsel on 2121 said why not make city college free-for-all san franciscans now as someone that is proud to be the author of the minimum wage ordinance by the way, passed 37 percent in 2014 i want to say when we talk about putting more money more than raises the minimum wage freezing minimum wage will not raise people to the middle-income that raised people out of december tuition this is not enough to
12:47 am
survive in san francisco but this is what we do know about city college the average jobs available for a graduate of city college here in san francisco today is $11,000 more if that same individual with just a high school diploma and so when we talk about what that invested it is truly an investment in helping people change their life circumstances i want to thank again laborer council 2121 for bringing this proposal to us today and emphasis everyone in this room we're not asking for a handout not asking so for general fund dollars what we did we are proposing new revenue dollars we brought forth and thank you to the 10 members of the board we asked you to make it contrary that was our intention to make
12:48 am
those dollars dedicateded to making city college free we fought we campaigned and door knocked and phone banked for this money and didn't do that to solve the woe the city but make city college free i keep hearing over and over the mayor is not obligated to make proposition yes not a single wood in the cost that references from the city college but didn't mean the voters didn't provide a mandate to make city college free first of all by state law we are prktd from dedicating dollars if a real estate transfer tax we were prohibited by law if actually putting that into the language of ordinance and it is true with while there are some voters that read the ordinance before voting i'll say the vast majority get
12:49 am
their information from the ballot arguments from the official proponent and opposition argument from our newspapers to from our website and from social media the ballot statement are official proenltsd and even the official proponent argument all reference city college every website and political marital and poster referencing free city college whether the chronicle that opposed it or endorsed it the revenue was designed to make city college free frankly, i find this child it and a by reason of of political talk i believe that voters voted by someone to tell me the majority of voters when we were
12:50 am
not checking off the ballot measures they especially\know that that was intended to make city college free here today so colleagues mill asking you to do something streertd one to vote for the supplemental appropriation of 900-0000 that guarantees that every san franciscan will have an opportunity to go to city college for free their recent public high school graduates and need additional training or classes or seniors that want to take credit courses to there their skills and asking you after that vote to ask the mayor to do the same and inform appropriate the money that the voters asked to make city college freer here today let's make san francisco not justice the first of many things but another first, let's make san francisco the first city to make
12:51 am
city college free colleagues, i ask for your support i want to thank and recognize many of the folks in the room that made in responsible and the first is 2121 and tim and (calling names) our laborer counsel the charter school of ask this and all 7 trustees of the city college board of trustees the students of university of california, san francisco it came out to campaign so more students can join you in the fall and united educators and bobby lopez and others fro organizing this today colleagues, i want to take the opportunity for us to have a conversation here today what that means to make san francisco great and hopefully in our leadership to make that cry
12:52 am
great by investing in our people. >> (clapping.) >> thank you, supervisor kim - thank you - >> (clapping.) >> thank you thank you, everyone and to members of the public i just want to remind you that we have a board rule there are no accountable impressions allowed in the chamber we go know your enthusiastic about free city college i ask you allow me and my colleagues to have this discussion you'll please hold our applause in our interested in the support wave our hand or interested in expressing your
12:53 am
december approval thumps down but please allow us to have this conversation. >> supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor president london breed. >> want to acknowledge commissioner kim we've been talking about this for months i appreciate the spirit of free city college obviously like to see funded i have concerns about having a one up conversation about the $9 million appropriation i fully support i as i mentioned discussions around new programs in the context of our city budget i say this as the chair of budget committee we have to make tough convoys and while i appreciate some of the contempt we don't need to make choices the reality is not true i don't want to support one of appropriations without identified and having come forth with proposals about a plan how to fund it.
12:54 am
>> and it comes to this proposal. >> we sit here today i don't believe that my children or parents for example, should be attending free city college courses that's a better use of taxpayers dollars i believe we have as a city we've been meeting that the mayor's office of budget and not only this shortfall but approximately $4 million we're facing over the next two fiscal years if it the the budget we signed and voted for one of my top priorities as we talk about rebalboa to address homelessness that to me a fundamental rule of the city government where our tax dollars should be going as we talk about the veto in november i see voters sent a mandate they want
12:55 am
to address homelessness 67 percent of san franciscans vote for that priority and 61 voted for prop w i present the comments and know we have a disagreement but not buy the argument regardless of how many times voters sent a message for additional taxed he does building i want to be clear he hear daily about the need to get people off the streets and to insure we're safe in our homes no by supporting this we're supporting the request outside of our normal budget we're making a conscious decision what i believe and consider to be vital resources and programs that our city most vulnerable don't think we have identified the sources for many of the things to get people off the
12:56 am
streets including the forming homeless to be more sufficient look i know the votes are here we believe we'll be making a mistake that that said i want to acknowledge those very much appreciate our dedication. >> thank you, supervisor farrell supervisor yee. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i'll keep my comments shorter supervisor kim. >> first of all, supervisor kim if you asked the question why not test k through 12 in the case of san francisco would be prek through 12 then you'll probably be asked to be the secretary of education by donald trump (laughter). >> first of all, when i finished high school at the galileo in san francisco i was promised a city college free
12:57 am
intuition and if it was not for that i wouldn't have gone to college something that i knew - like many other people if it was not there we would have gone to work it is one thing to say try to get people off the streets and in the - for those that were able to go beyond high school it keeps individuals off the street so i just wanted to say that i was promised a free tuition at the city college and want to
12:58 am
keep admit promise to san franciscans of tomorrow workforce the same opportunities that i received. >> thank you commissioner yee, supervisor avalos. >> thank you supervisor president london breed first of all, i want to graduating congratulate the coalition to support free city college that is remarkable all those months you've been work together on w and for the resolution we have before us for free city college supplemental appropriation for city college we wouldn't be able to get this far without you and he really want to appreciate appreciate supervisor kim's comments introducing today's discussion and just to hear all the work that went into building the coalition and working on this policy and just the arguments i've heard about you know why is it so important what i heard was new in terms of
12:59 am
framing framing and looking at the education system was like and needed for the opportunity in the 20th century compared to the 21st century i'm blown away by the argument without this is essentially, we still provide this level of free education to all residents in san francisco we yeah, we have to make tough choices i feel like over the past maybe 2010 we haven't made tough choices on the budget it is hard to balance the budget but looking at the budget we've pass in 2009 and 2010 when we had a $5600 million deficit the board of supervisors reprogrammed $42 million and $40 million in those years we
1:00 am
have a $500 million deficit we balanced budget and then we've seen our budget grow by $4 billion since 2009 and 2010 and we have much smaller deficits to close and sometimes minimal we had had prior tip of the iceberg the budget for the board of supervisors we came up with 15 maybe $3 million in general fund compared to 40 and $42 million this year we actually city collegeed budget we prioritized and we look at the budget to add things we want to spend not necessarily to look at what we're going to defund to fund other things but we're in that time that is time to look at prioritization we came together as a stir to put w on the ballot we came
1:01 am
together to promote w before that as well we came to together to put j and k on the ballot and sad with the mayor's office and supervisor farrell and supervisor wiener and question decided we'll all compromise to put j and k on the ballot w was separate we had a conversation what w will be generated and also pay for and that was street trees and had a measure prop e about street trees to make sure the aide will take the responsibility for street trees and sidewalks that passed unanimously as well that was not a great set aside it was a harder measure to pass not as hard as w but an important measure to pass so we all came
1:02 am
together colleagues and supported 11 zero putting prop e on the ballot knowing the major source to handle the streets and sidewalks would be from prop w we came together because the mayor has not pulled the strings on prop e that will continual we'll have trees and sidewalks covered well, i want consistency we all work knowing that prop w was street trees and city college therefore see city college fund and level we've exterminate and it is really he disconcerting to see how much effort has gone in and how meaningful to see city college supported in san francisco there was a parcel tax on the ballot that showed how much people care we put a parcel tax the parcel
1:03 am
tax pass higher than prop q that goes against homeless people we. >> saw that, yes people in san francisco according to our property tax care more about removing tents from the city we we've got a lot more work to do probation j mentioned we is a mandate we need to fund i don't think this is the sources and shouldn't be the source we've work together on different deals to make sure the city college and street trees and transportation all the services moving forward and step back to that and making other tough choices to balance the budget we have to defund things so my last day on the board of supervisors i'm introducing an ordinance that will allow us to fund many

1:06 am
make sure if it is free community college it is sustainable what i am from the gwen of the conversation he was uncomfortable we backings a free program open a volatile revenue source one way or another that is incredible and tremendous in light of this program that all of you want to happen that you supported that you went out there and get the revenue source on the ballot i commend you but have to remember it is a volatile but we'll build the resources what happens when the revenue increases we hope it will what happens when tuition increases; right? those are the details i hope we'll sort out the first i've heard what happens ohio was literally on

1:08 am
obviously november 8th was a historic day the majority of san franciscans voted in good faith to pass prop w and anticipating that the money will go towards making city college assessable for everyone this city we talk about this making more and more less liveable for middle and low income and working-class people public education in my opinion is psychological it is critical to insure that all residents can live here can compete, and can compete in our city's economy and this is particularly true when we think about the southeast neighborhood in district 10 so i recognize the significant contribution that city college creates and pathway for social and moeshth for the social and
1:09 am
market moeshlt of people whether they're seniors or speaking english as a second language or it is for people not everyone has the money or more importantly the network to assess higher education and that means they end up less qualified quite frankly most times overlooked for good paying jobs in my mind making city college assessable is not unrelated to our homeless crisis i think there a direct correlation about the public safety scissor how many people have an county i tuesday night to uplift themselves we must investment investment in all higher
1:10 am
education doing everything we can to close the wealth go up no person 0 should end up on the street due to economic problems that is important to grow households income and sustain the future of san francisco so for this reason i'll supporting supervisor kim's proposal. >> thank you. >> thank you supervisor cowen supervisor peskin thank you madam president and colleagues, i rise to say what i've said pubically a number of times and associate mooechz with supervisor kim and supervisor avalos a deal is a deal a promise is promise far be it for us to second example the voters while prop w didn't specifically reference city college 10 out of the 11 members of this board specifically voted for the
1:11 am
payment for this whether there were voter that voted or it will go to city college or this is a representation and promise i made when i joined with the majority of this body in pga those 3 instrument for me this is simple i think we've been told we asked the voters a question they gave us an answer we don't have wiggle room as far as i'm concerned, relative to the before you gety constraint look i was on this board a decade ago when the budget was half as large tour workforce was 3,000 individuals less on is payroll there are many ways we can absorb this this is prop w
1:12 am
we video competing and social available priorities we can do that balancing act your mandate is extremely clear. >> thank you supervisor peskin supervisor campos. >> thank you, very much. i'll be very brief the examiner had a story about that item the medical cannabises said mayor ed lee was to buy the board of supervisors by not supporting city college i don't think that was actually, the right headline i think the headline to be mayor ed lee will advise the supporter of san francisco by not supporting city college this is not a difficult on or about not a tough choice the fact the voters have spoken but beyond that when you look at the issue of inequality i believe is the simple most important issue not
1:13 am
only facing san francisco but the entire country the great equalizer is education, education is the key to closing that inequality and if we don't do 24 in san francisco where in this country so i'm proud to support this item i think that is very unfortunate that open this issue the mayor is trying to talk about out of both sides of his mouth you can't say you supported city college can't have it both ways i actually think that is ironic people talk about voting down this item as a matter of fiscal responsibility how fiscal to deny access to education the one thing that connects gives opportunity to some of the folks that are struggling in the city
1:14 am
if you want to be fiscally responsible invest in education the more you invest the more fiscally responsible you're doing let's do the right thing and fellow the intent of the voters thank you. >> thank you supervisor campos supervisor kim. >> thank you supervisor president london breed just some final words on the debate we've heard in the crux that is about our current budgetary road and the finances should be utilized for what given the failure of prop k thank you to supervisor avalos it is his last meeting and he's trying to fund our homeless services and make city college free and protect our trees in san francisco working to make sure we can all win in the budgetary process i had a question for the controller's office and first of all, thank ben rosenfield along with the staff of
1:15 am
(calling names) for all of their work on the measure over the course of a year now we have put you to work and task and thank you for responding to us i want to ask given i think the fact that the sales tax revenue 20 didn't pass we were depend on to fund the homeless services and use prop w for the funding of free city college do we currently have enough money in our current fiscal year to make that program free in 2017 as planned and promised and as well as funding the homeless service 24/7 january and june of this fiscal year. >> supervisors ben rosenfield controller the loss of sales tax one and $37 million of loss we've discussed as the and elsewhere there are other revenues in the current year so,
1:16 am
yes there is money available in the current year to support the appropriation from my perspective the discussion here regarding this program and services trees and those things it largely a conversation regarding not the current fiscal year but the next fiscal year the city has projected a shortfall of approximately $120 million to grow up any spending for this program or homeless services or street trees is automated in the mayor's office plan in the current year and to spend additional money increases the shortfall to spend less decreases the shortfalls but i encourage you to look at those issues that effect the budget year and beyond. >> i want to emphasis that point there is a way to make
1:17 am
sure we can all win in the budget cycle and make sure our priorities are met and the conversation for the next fiscal year look at everyone in the pot not just freeing ask this and homelessness but all of the priorities and determine how we best spend down next 4 years budget and again colleagues thank you all so much for your support i implore and the mayor's office to join us this is so importantly not just because of promise but really an opportunity for us to dig deep and investment in our city and confront the conundrum that effects the cities nation wide a shrinking middle-income how we can reinvest in our community and i really think that it is incumbent us policymakers to think about how we solve the big
