12:00 am
>> [gavel] all right. welcome everyone to our rules committee meeting of thursday january 12, 2017. i am katy tang chairing this committee. to my right is vice chair malia cohen and we will like to give a warm welcome to the new supervisor who is on this committee sandra lee fewer. [applause] our clerk is derek evans and from sfgtv we would like to thank the staff. felix is new and at this time mr. clerk do you have any announcements. >> yes, sir madam chair.
12:01 am
please silent all cell phones and electronic devices and items should be submitted to the check and items will be on the tuesday january 242017 board of supervisors agenda unless otherwise stated. >> thank you. mr. clerk can you call item 1. >> item 1 is for the ordinance amending the administrative code to require that the department of homelessness and supportive housing appoint one member to the reentry council increasing the member from 23 to 24 and increasing the time of appointed former inmate can be free from custody from maximum to two years to a three years and require that council submit a report to the board of supervisors recommended whether the council should continue by july 1, 2018. >> this is from supervisor avalos and now supervisor breed and we have reentry council staff here.
12:02 am
>> i am a planner at san francisco do you want probation department and i staff the reentry council. this ordinance change -- it's an amendment on the originally ordinance to form the reentry council will do two things. the first is now that we have a department of homelessness and supportive housing would add that department as one of the member organizations to the reentry council, and the other is that as the board knows through the rules committee you are able to appoint -- the board appoints three -- four members of the reentry council who are formerly incarcerated people and one to have maximum two years post release in order to qualify and we found that two years is a very short time and we can expand that pool of very qualified people by giving an extra year so people are able
12:03 am
to stabilize and find their feet before they have to start doing public service. >> all right. great. i don't have any questions on this particular item and i don't see any from colleagues as well so thank you for your presentation so with that we will go to public comment on item 1 if anyone is here to speak on this please come forward. seeing none. public comment is now closed. [gavel] if we could get a motion to this ordinance? i'm sorry cone con. >> thank you just for clarification you asked for a motion. >> yes. >> thank you. i would just like to make that motion -- forgive me -- >> with a positive recommendation. >> to the full board, yes,. >> great. we will do that without objection. [gavel] all right item 2 please. item number 2 is a hearing to consider nominating a member of the san francisco board of supervisors for the north coast central on the california coastal commission.
12:04 am
>> thank you. so we did have a poll among our supervisors to see who would like to sit on the california coastal commission which will then be consideration among some other jurisdictions outside of san francisco. at this time supervisor aaron peskin was the 11 that asked to serve in this role so if we can get a motion to put forth supervisor peskin later after public comment that would be great. >> i will make that motion to have aaron peskin on the california coastal commission seat and this is an appointment made of senate rules committee who will consider the nominations provided by the board of supervisors. in marin county, san francisco county and sonoma county. >> all right. thank you supervisor cohen so i do have a number of speaker cards so we
12:05 am
will open this item to public comment. [calling speaker names] so if you have submitted a card please come up. even if you haven't please also come on up. >> hi good afternoon. my name is marcela, the founder and director of azula and organization focused on environmental justice within conservation. we have been following the work of the california coastal commission closely and we think that supervisor peskin has a very good record and commitment to open space and also to keeping the waterfront open to people so we're gladly enthusiastically supporting his nomination. >> great. thank you very much. next speaker please. >> good morning. this is kathryn howard. i am a member of the sierra club and i'm also
12:06 am
on the citizens advisory group to the amendment to the san francisco coastal plan but i am here on my own. i support supervisor peskin for appointment to the coastal commission. this is a very important position for san francisco. san francisco is currently proposing amendments to sections of our own local coastal program of the western shoreline plan. our san francisco coastal zones extends approximately 6 miles along san francisco western shoreline from the point lobeos recreation area in the north to the fort sumter in the south. the proposed local coastal amendment specifically addresses sea level rise and the coast and once it's approved by the board and the full board it will be forwarded to the california
12:07 am
coastal commission for review and approval this. is a long way of saying that inventory decisions will be made in the future at the california coastal commission. >> >> not only for all of california but right now particularly for our beloved ocean beach. both san francisco and indeed all of the california coast need a strong voice on the commission to protect our precious coast line. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker please. >> good morning supervisor. i want to congratulate the new supervisor. it's nice. i saw you sworn in on monday. my name is rebecca evans and a local environmental activist but i am speaking as an individual. one of the first things i did as a professional years ago was to campaign for the passage of the coastal act and i have seen it over the years and sometimes it does a good job and others it doesn't. i fully support supervisor peskin. he's my
12:08 am
supervisor. i have worked with him off and on for 25 years. he has unique knowledge and history with environmental issues and as mentioned sea level rise which is important and looking at the bay side and also important on the coast so i hope you nominate the supervisor for this position. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker please. >> supervisors i am art feinstein and a vice chair of the california nevada committee of the sierra club and urging you to send supervisor peskin up to the senate to see who they will choose out of the three counties. i have been doing environmental work for 30 years and a lot of that time aaron has been working in san francisco and elsewhere on -- working on conservation issues. his experience and trust for public
12:09 am
land shows that he knows how to work with the urban and natural resource communities and a lot of work in the city that's not just building playgrounds et cetera but also helping preserve natural resources so he knows both end of that has he demonstrates on the board of supervisors employed he encourage you to endorse him and hopefully he will be chosen. thank you. >> all right. thank you very much. any other members of the public to seek on item 2? seeing none. public comment is now closed. so supervisor cohen made a motion to send forth to the full board with positive recommendation. >> yes, i would like to add to my comments quickly. the coastal commission for those that don't know plans and regulates the use of land and water along the coastal zone and important to my district along the waterfront but also the central waterfront in supervisor peskin's district as well as
12:10 am
touches on come kim's district. this is incredible important to consider the effects of sea water rising and as we continue to plan along in the bayview community and in the dogpatch neighborhood planning for our city we need to be taking those sea water rising considerations into account, and i can't think of a better person, more dodded person to move into the seat than supervisor peskin and i am delighted and enthusiastic to move it forward and with that said let's make a positive recommendation to move supervisor peskin and nominate him. >> all right. second that by supervisor fewer and we'll move it out without objection r . congratulations supervisor
12:11 am
peskin. item 3 please. >> item 3 is hearing to consider appointing two members terms ending february 1, 2018 and february 1, 2019 to the park, recreation and open space advisory committee. >> all right thank you. so one of the things we will be doing and entertaining a motion for later for seat seven. we will need to continue that item for various reasons so really we're only going to be considering seat 20 and i believe that the nominee for seat 20 is not here today but i am very familiar with his work. he's a district residents so i will be supporting him to go into seat 20 so at this time i don't know if there is no comments, questions from committee members? then we will open item 3 to public comment first. any members of the public here? okay seeing none. public comment is close said then. [gavel] as if we can get a motion to continue seat seven. >> sure i would like to make a motion that we continue. >> all right. actually lts go
12:12 am
-- there's a comment on seat 20. >> thank you colleagues so i know i am new to the committee but does anyone have gender and racial break down of the full committee of prosac. >> supervisor i don't have it but i can get it to your office if you would like. >> this is what i would like age groups, i mean which age they are, also gender and race. >> i will have that to your office later. >> that would be great. thank you. >> thank you supervisor. >> thank you so much so at this time then do we have a motion to both continue seat seven, i would say maybe to the call of the chair, and then to submit trevor mcneil's name for seat 20 to the full board with a positive recommendation? >> so i do have a question madam chair. i am wondering if
12:13 am
since this information is not available until later in my office i am wondering if this is the appointment that needs to be made today or postponed until we have a full purview of how diverse that group is. >> i will say just based on my experience at least for some of the committees and commissions where the individual supervisors get to make nominations generally speaking we have deferred to the district supervisor for their particular seats. when there are -- but it is your call of course but that has just been the general policy -- for example if i have someone appointing to a particular seat because i feel this person is interested and engaged and wants to participate and maybe fits certain criteria that i have so again i tend to defer to the nominating supervisor however for larger commissions maybe the rec park commission or something like that where there's a
12:14 am
combination between the mayor and the board we need to look at the complement of things and of course when i am making a particular appointment i will look okay i want diversity as well and i will bring that to the commission so that's my take so i would prefer to move forward because it's supervisor breed's nominee but supervisor cohen. >> thank you. i also too want to add to my voice to what supervisor tang was mentioning that level of deference is appreciated and given to the sponsoring supervisor. also it is usually the rules committee staff that does the due diligence, not necessarily the clerk doing the due diligence of the exact make up of the body. these the same considerations that i look into because -- not only am i looking for diversity in gender diversity and ethnic diversity but also in
12:15 am
experience, geographic, where they're coming from in the city. have they been to the other parts of the city and the district? they're all critical questions that manifest -- not always here in the committee work, committee work space, but in the absence of your staff doing the due diligence on your behalf. they know your values, and it is incumbent upon them to take the values and communicate them and ask the questions to the applicants that are coming before them, so there is a a little bit of work that has to be done, but -- >> okay, no thank you for answering that he q so i am new to the committee and actually when i on the school board i look extensively of the committee make up because they represent the whole eventually so i understand there is deferment that goes with the appointments from the district
12:16 am
supervisor. i am happy to do that. it would have been great to have the nominee here today to answer some questions, but that's fine. thank you very much, and i think in the future then what i am hearing is that this is -- not the staff that would give me this information but the rules staff that would and request this information ahead of time. >> okay. >> it's just that i just got here. >> we know. >> and that's totally fine. i am glad we could clarify that a little bit. for example i have two appointees to prosac, two women, one woman of color so i very much looked into that while i was making those considerations but again there will be commissions and appointments that come before us that are more broad. for example, mayor suggestions or our committee suggestions so we need to look at that carefully so thank you for raising that so at this time based on what i
12:17 am
said continuance of seat seven to the call of the chair and trevor mcneil to seat 20. >> i will second the motion. >> without objection. [gavel] all right. thank you. item 4 please. >> item number 4 hearing to consider appointing six members, terms ending november 23, 2018 to the shelter monitoring committee. there are six seats and 13 applicants. >> great. so we will go down the line for applicants and see who is here and who is not so first up we have patrina hall. all right. please come on up. >> yes. hello. my name is patrina hall and i am running for seat one and seat two. i am a single parent with a minor child who is under 18, and i am
12:18 am
also disabled, so i am running for both seats. i qualify for both seats. i was homeless within three years of applying for the seats and i would like to say that i have served on part of an unexpired term for a member. presently i have been working with the committee on various policies such as shelter bed utilization policy. i believe the imminent danger policy. also the policy on recommendations to modifying the shelter training manual so i have been pretty active, and with the pres as -- policy committee as well and presently i'm the only
12:19 am
african-american woman on the committee. there are i believe another committee member who is a person of color. i don't know his exact racial makeup. he maybe african-american and mixed with something else but i'm the only black person on the committee presently and i feel that the seat will be perfect for me because i am there to bring in the diversity. >> thank you. supervisor cohen. >> thank you. so ms. hall i think you came before this body; right? you're currently in the position on the body. >> yes. >> this is a reup the term you were appointed to finish out. at the time you have been on the shelter monitoring committee what are some of your accomplishments that you're most proud of that you worked on? >> i can't say i really introduced any policies but i have worked on the shelter bed
12:20 am
utilization policy as a group with the subpolicy committee. i worked revising the training manual. i have also participated in various meetings and presentations with the new homeless department of housing. >> so when you say you participated in the presentations what does that look like? what did you do? what was the topic you were talking about? >> yes, we remember talking about the shelter. >> >> were talking about the shelter bed utilization. >> and information you were sharing with the department what the shelter bed process is? is that what it is? >> yes. they were sharing information with us how they also facilitate shelter bed utilizations and appropriation and set asides. >> i understand this is in the capacity of a volunteer -- you know in the form of volunteer
12:21 am
work. have you been able to do any work around mentoring or inspiring women in the shelter system being an advocate on their behalf? >> yes, i have. but most women are really trying to seek employment. they really don't have time to set aside for participating in volunteer work. >> what kind of work are you doing now? >> presently i'm a student. well, i am majoring in pharmacology. i received the master's degree in public administration. i have a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. i a associate's degree in behavioral science and aa degree in education and pursuing a law degree. >> so you're really busy. >> yes. >> how do you find time to
12:22 am
mother, work and volunteer? >> i am used to it. i have been doing it for many years. >> fair enough. one last question what kind of work do you want to accomplish in the future in this capacity? >> i am looking forward to work ork the manuel and ada policies in place and set aside for disabled. also special accommodations for seniors in the shelter which was a policy discussed by another committee member. i am looking also to facilitate programs hopefully that i can encourage the shelters to sasilltate a program where the employees are bonded prior to employment. >> thank you. i have no further questions. >> thank you very much. so i think supervisor cohen asked some of the questions that i
12:23 am
had for well so i don't know at this time if we have any further questions. okay. thank you so much for serving already on this body, and so at this time i actually neglected to call up the shelter monitoring committee staff jeff so if you could come up first and then we will proceed to the rest of the applicants. thank you ms. hall. >> thank you. you're welcome. >> good morning and happy new year supervisor tang, supervisor cohen, supervisor fewer. my name is jeff simbee and one of the two shelter monitoring committee staff so i wanted to take a couple of minutes to mention that membership on the shelter monitoring committee is a little bit -- or actually a lot different than membership with other committees in that the committee members do site inspections so they go out at night typically after 6:00 p.m. and trend time at the 21 different shelter sites. as far as frequency a committee member
12:24 am
will do about -- they should average one visit per week so four times a month. in addition to that the committee is always looking for community members who are bilingual and spanish speaking would be very helpful so if the applicants have that please mention that. as far as the regular meeting stuff accident like the monthly meeting and participation in the subcommittee meetings which supervisor tang you're involved in the imminent danger domestic violence and that was in the meetings and members that can collaborate with other agencies much like everyone did in the imminent danger domestic violence and different agencies and you guys work together to push that through so thank you for that by the way and lastly i want to say thank you to all the mothers. i have been at the committee staff for about four years and this is the most applicants that we've ever had.
12:25 am
usually there is one or two and really hard time finding applicants so i want to say thank you to the applicants. i hope we have a good pool that hopefully can fill our seats. thank you. >> great. just based on earlier questions from supervisor fewer for example he has staff here just for the purposes of the first meeting and supervisor fewer we can talk about the make up of the current committee and what that looks like? >> that we currently have? >> yes. >> so 13 members. four are a poichted by the local homeless coordinating board and they're full and the appointment for the upcoming term. three members are appointed through the mayor's office and those seats are already appointed for this next term, and so we have a total of seven and then plus these vacant six seats. >> and then in terms of the
12:26 am
makeup based on the criteria that supervisor fewer was looking at so for example gender, ethnicity. i don't know if you have that information available. >> off the top of my head there are -- you have to give me a second here. as far as the seven members that we have five female -- five male, two female -- [inaudible] that's good. okay. >> okay. if that's all you have for now. supervisor fewer. >> yes. do you have any information on race or ethnicity? >> yes, one african-american, one asian, three or four
12:27 am
caucasian and five caucasian. one african-american and one asian person. >> and your bilingual capacity? >> of those seven no one is bilingual in spanish. >> in spanish. in chinese? >> chinese? no. but as far as -- actually i'm not sure any other language but i know for sure there is no one currently on the committee who is bilingual spang speaking. >> nobody? >> yeah. >> would you say that the majority of people that this body would be serving would you say there is a fairly sizable part that might be spanish or chinese speaking? >> so spanish speaking, yes, like when we go to the delores
12:28 am
shelter a huge spanish speaking -- almost 90% spanish speaking at those shelters and the big shelters and msc south and i'm not sure of of percentages off the top of my head and lot of spanish speaking. for chinese speaking not so much. what is helpful there one of the staff speaks mandarin. >> mandarin? >> yes, so that is helpful and when we have problems i want to mention that the staff at the shelters have been helpful in helping translation. >> great. are you finding that we have an increase of arabic speaking people that we're serving in the shelters? >> not that -- no, not that i have noticed. >> okay. thank you very much. >> okay. >> thank you supervisor fewer and thank you. so based on our
12:29 am
conversation here i am wondering if you call up the applicants if you could address anything if you have language skills that would be great to share with us as well as your level commitment to the site inspections and meetings and subcommittee meetings and so forth and include that part of your conversation, presentation so next we have jonathan blackman. >> good morning supervisors. my name is jonathan blackman. i'm -- my profession i'm the salvation army harbor house director and work with homeless families. i have that experience for the last two years and previous to that i was the manager of the salvation army harbor light detoxification center and deal directly with the homeless off the street. we do a great deal of referring to the shelters. i am available to
12:30 am
visit shelters. i am very mobile. it may seem and the travel and i get around by scooter and avoids traffic issues and i am available for meetings and shelter visits. i can communicate in spanish, so should i continue or do you have any questions? >> if you could talk a little more about what are some of the policy goals or goals in general that you have if you're able to serve on this committee? >> well, the main goal i have as a referring agent to the shelters the people are resistant. the population i work with are resistant to go to the shelters. we refer them to the shelters when necessary. most people typically it's a last resort. sometimes prefer to be on the street so a goal i have is try to reverse the perception that people have of
12:31 am
the shelters directly by mofer mofer the shelters and find out what the problems are. the problems that i typically encounter in terms anecdotally they tell me they think it's dangerous. there is violence that goes on there. their property is not safe and yet it's sometimes the only resort for people to go to so i would like to make it a more welcoming place to go so they're willing to take advantage rather than be on the street. >> okay great. thank you so much. colleagues any questions or comments for mr. blackman? okay seeing none thank you very much. >> have a nice day. >> thank you. supervisor ron summers. okay ron summers is not here. >> >> lor retia gains. >> good morning supervisors. it's a pleasure being here. i
12:32 am
am enthusiastic about applying -- i am going to be applying for seats two, four, five and six so first of all for seat two i am disabled. i was previously homeless person within the past three years, and i have lived at a domestic women's shelter and i want to say thank you. i went through the executive summary for some of the things you're doing for domestic violence. i really appreciate that. as far as my qualifications i am african-american and also native american dissent, and i am able to work with diverse populations which includes students, families, senior citizens,let homeless, disabled persons. >> >> who are physically and mentally challenged, persons from ethnic backgrounds and orientation and race and more
12:33 am
information. i do volunteer work as a worship associate at church and the way i connect with people is through different multi-religions, so as far as my qualifications i worked at cots family shelter in sonoma county where at first i went in as a client and i went to the director of the program and i had some suggestions so they hired me as a resident manager and i was able to do deescalation, provide services for families and counseling and group counseling when i was there and also i was the acting director for a day treatment facility in marin county as well, so when the director would leave i would take over which was a surprise to me but i had worked with him so i did that for a year as well. i worked
12:34 am
with eviction defense with james traci here in san francisco, and we advocated for homeless families and individuals. i am a past graduate of the rams pure wellness counseling. i don't know if you're aware of that, and i recently got accepted to their advanced course so i am starting classes next week. i am really excited and my under graduate studies in political science at golden gate university and intergovernmental relations, negotiations, contract law, critical writing, and these are some of the skills that i can also bring to the seat. presently i am working for volunteer for the friendship line, the institute of aging, and what they do is if you're over 18 years or older and disabled or 60 years of age and referred through a case manager or case worker and what we do is we do suicide prevention. we
12:35 am
provide medication reminders to people that we call in or clients that call us. also some of my other -- in the city i worked for the san francisco unified school district where i did extensive volunteer work. as long as my children were in school i did the volunteer work. i needed to be there and be a part of that as a volunteer work. i worked at kps radio and i worked there for a year and a half in the apprenticeship program and worked come community radio klax at uc berkeley and as a dj, a producer, engineer. i did interviews, soap box derby which was a political call in talk show and the news and many of the people that worked with me we would go out and get local news in the community that you didn't see, so i am flexible.
12:36 am
my children are adults now so i am flexible and i am really looking forward and i think i can bring a lot of my talents and qualifications, and i have a letter of recommendation for vacant seat four. i don't know if you want me to go through it or -- >> no. if it's in the packet that's fine. >> it's in the packet and also that recommendation was from my teacher kristin snell through the pier specialists mental health certificate program and i always have a recommendation from the eviction defense collaborative for vacancies five and six and one thing i would like to bring to the committee is how do we assess people who have mental health issues? when i stayed at the shelters here i did not see resources for mental health services so one thing -- being a part of the rams
12:37 am
program what i would like to do is bring in mental health services for people who are in the shelter. how do we assess them? and so those are my qualifications. i am interested in being a part of this committee and if you have any questions. >> thank you so much for your thorough presentation and i don't know what you haven't done yet ms. gains but i think what you bring up about mental health services in the shelter is incredibly important. it is something that we a mental health board as well. perhaps that could be a collaborative bodies. supervisor cohen. >> i was thinking along the same lines and you answered the question what do you plan to do in the future and in that capacity and i love the element of the mental health work. i think it's incredibly important that we do a lot more cross collaboration between the mental health department, department of public health and the mental health board reentry council veteran services. they're all
12:38 am
major constituencies that factor into the homeless community, the population. what are some of the driving forces to lead people to be homeless or finding themselves in shelters? and having key people already in critical positions to help in many cases administer, talk to, guide them along the process, encourage them, build them back up, introduce them to new opportunities they're not aware of is really important so i am happy to support you as you move forward through the process. thank you. >> yes thank you. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> all right. so at this time the next candidate is isaac langfod. and i believe that we had received notice he wouldn't be here today so the next applicant is raymond benton. is raymond benton here? okay. seeing none -- i mean seeing no
12:39 am
raymond. leslie bilbro. >> good morning supervisors. thank you for this opportunity to present. my name is leslie bilbro. my background as i have 23 years in corporate america and five years in the non-profit space. currently i am director of programs for [inaudible] work development start up and as director i work directly with not only the homeless population but also we entry clients and what my interest on being on this committee is really understanding and contributing to not just the compliance aspects of which should occur, but also be able to provide changes or recommendations to policies as it relates to the
12:40 am
health, the safety, and the res dents' focus while they're there and what i mean by that currently we have several student who is are homeless, and one is a homeless woman with a child who is required to have the child live with the father. one is a homeless young man. the lafco hort we had four homeless families. >> >> one man had a set of twins and what i hear from them my children's behavior is changing from what they're seeing. i am hearing they're not safe. this woman threatened me because she thought i was talking about her" and recognizing the important seakz of people transition from homelessness and economic empowerment is critical that we
12:41 am
understand the conditions upon which people live and survive in the shelter. they don't feel like they're thriving and helping to work on policies where they not only feel respected and have dignity while they're in the shelter, but they can find a pathway out of the shelter, and leave it behind them and move forward as contributing members in our society, and so in terms of my language i have very limited spanish. i haven't spoken it since college, and in terms of my participation in meetings whether it's a subcommittee or visiting on site i am currently a member of the san francisco reentry council and we have meetings regularly on their policy and operational practices subcommittee so i have no problems attending meetings. if i'm an advocate i am an all in advocate and i think it's
12:42 am
critical that we advocate those that face tremendous barriers in the city of san francisco and the bay area in general so if you have questions for me i am happy to answer them. >> thank you very much for your presentation. all right. so seeing no questions or comments then thank you very much. our next applicant is terezie bohrer, but i believe mr. simbee is supposed to present the testimony today. >> so she asked me to read this to you. "i have asked him to present my testimony today. my husband on a trip to
12:43 am
hawaii and visiting our daughter and i have been a shelter monitor and going six times a year and assumed the duties of shelter leader, secretary of the committee and on the policy and bylaws committees. i attend monthly meetings and review reports. the work on the shelter monitoring committee is rewarding but frustrating. i wish i could do more. it's frustrating to see seniors and people with disabilities in the shelters. as a senior citizen nurse and social worker living in the san francisco towers i come home after monitoring visits feeling helpless, sad and frustrated want i am impatient and i want to see the homeless problem in our city resolved. at the same time i must state i believe my small contribution is
12:44 am
rewarding of value assuring home that are homeless and treated with respect and fed and temporarily living in a safe clean environment. it is important to note that shelter residents warmly greet me and frequently that the city has this monitoring program. i would like to continue my service and involvement with this committee. moreover in the next year i want to research omseses for senior citizens and develop a white paper describing my findings. i want to make sure that people who are homeless are treated with dignity and respect and the rights are protected. your confidence in me and confirming of my reappointment would greatly be appreciated". >> thank you very much. >> okay. earlier you asked me the composition question and i was nervous and couldn't figure it out and i sat down and got the correct one. >> yes please. >> four are caucasian. two
12:45 am
asian and one african-american -- moses from kenya and as far as gender six males and one female. >> thank you very much. >> six males, one female. >> all right. although i guess i am a little confused and says she is seeking appointment but it's reappointment. i want to make sure i have this correct. >> yes madam chair. this is a new appointment. >> but she's work in the shelter monitoring committee in that capacity? all right. the next applicant we have is matthew steen. >> good morning madam chair and good morning committee
12:46 am
members. my name is matthew steen. i have served on the shelter monitoring committee through the local homeless coordinating board for the last four years. i served as acting chair, vice chair during 2016 and previously secretary as well on the policy committee. currently -- well, not currently because our terms are over. i was chair of the bylaws committee. during the four years i inspected our shelters over 120 times so i have been conducted 120 shelter inspections of all 20 of our shelters. i have worked on our new domestic violence policy for the shelters and along with others and a great proponent of that and see how it's operating in the family
12:47 am
shelters and denying service to women involved with domestic violence in our shelters. previously i worked on obtaining and obvocating for year round funding for the family shelters that we currently have. i worked on advocating and pushing for creation of the [inaudible] place, the first lgbtq shelter in the city and first in the nation perhaps. i worked strong advocacy for expanding mother brown's shelter in the bay view which did not go through and that would have been a 100 bed shelter opposed to folks sitting in chairs all night. and the rest of my resume if you want to call that is in the committee packet. i am involved in current local democratic application and chair of the
12:48 am
western united states for scholarships for [inaudible] nation and i am open to questions but i am withdrawing my application for appointment. >> you're withdrawing your application? >> i am withdrawing my application. >> okay. that was a surprise but thank you for letting us know the things you have worked on. i enjoyed working on the family shelter with domestic violence so i want to thank you for all of your advocacy throughout the years and finally we're able to change that policy in 2016. >> yes. thank you. i will be applying for another committee or commission appointment in the near future so thank you again. again. >> thank you mr. stein. okay the next applicant is lauren kahn. >> hemo supervisor tang, supervisor cohen and supervisor fewer. thank you for the opportunity to come before you
12:49 am
today to be considered for seat three or seat four of the shelter monitoring committee. i am a naifit san franciscan and graduate of local high school and -- lowell high school and was a tutor, case manager and most relevant to the activities of the shelter monitoring committee i worked as a compliance manager overseeing services to individuals who are homeless. my experience includes conducting site visits and auditing programs to standards for health, safety and quality of care, investigating and resolving complaints and grievances and developing and monitoring corrective action plans. i understand this work can be sometimes perceive said as punitive and nitpicky but i love it. >> >> oversight and monitoring celebrate the difficult work of service providers and avenue to
12:50 am
support guidance when opportunities for improvement arrive and i am seen as a resource and not a dreaded presence. we have a crisis of homelessness in san francisco. not only do we have too many people in need of safe stable housing and supportive services but the demographics of the homeless population is out of step with the demographics of the city as a whole. this coupled with forces in washington who do not share our love for san francisco values means that the importance of safe clean shelters and resource centers will likely increase in the coming years. san francisco protects and honors its people because of all the ways they're unique and special. this spirit is and should be reflected in our shelters. i would consider it an honor to support the very important work of our city's shelters and resource centers as a part of the shelter monitoring committee and i thank you for
12:51 am
your consideration. to answer the questions that you have brought up in terms of language capability. i speak italian. i don't know if that is useful and a little bit of spanish. in terms of level of commitment i am away i was told maybe 20 hours a week. my employer is supportive of this so i am definitely prepared for that. i think those are the questions. i am happy to answer anything else. >> great thank you very much. all right. so no questions at this time so thank you for your presentation. >> great. thank you so much. >> and our next applicant is rafael gutierrez. >> madam chair, if iktd just clarify terezie bohrer was a appointee of the homeless board on the shelter monitoring committee and not a seat supported by the board of supervisors. >> thank you for the clarification. so rafael gutierrez. not here. okay.
12:52 am
traci watson. >> good morning board of supervisors. my name is traci watson, and i am a native of san francisco, a single mom, and i am actually a recovering addict, coming up on seven years and i have been given back to the homeless community i would say for the past seven years plus and worked at several shelters throughout the city, the emergency pop up shelters el nino. i worked united council and staff as a monitor. i work at a women's place drop in shelter and providence shelters as well, and also i'm a sitting county worker with the city and county of san francisco homeward bound program and there for four years working with homeless individuals trying to relocate
12:53 am
back to the family and home communities. let's see i have two years of college. i went to school to attain my kdac and have many hours completed as a drug and alcohol practitioners. i went and took the test and haven't passed out. i am confident they will. let's see. so working at the shelters -- when the shelter monitoring committee was coming in and always a goal of mine when they came into the shelters and something i want to do and get involved in the process of ensuring the safety and the protocols are being made within the shelters, and working as the staff there are scenes that i see -- things that i see that need improvement as well and i want to involved in the
12:54 am
conditions of the shelter and the safety and the guidelines that the staff are properly trained to work with individuals that have mental issues. drug and substance abuse and offer more services on site within the shelters and it is also proper security. so that's pretty much it for me, yeah. >> great. well thank you so much. i mean definitely your experience as demonstrated your commitment to serve those in the shelters. >> absolutely. >> which non-profit is sponsoring youoir which non-profit do you work for? >> i work for -- i work for -- well, it's not a non-profit. homeward bound used to be non-profit but now with the city and county just recently and the city and county recently got the contract for the homeward bound
12:55 am
program and i volunteer with several non-profits around the city. >> hold on. the seat -- you must be selected by candidates and by non-profit agencies and provide services to homeless people so i am curious which organization nominated you. >> positive directions. >> positive directions. perfect. have you attended any of the shelter monitoring committee meetings? >> absolutely. >> perfect. no other questions. thank you. >> you're welcome. >> thank you very much. so at this time we're going to move on to the last applicant mere nicholas kimura. >> hi. good afternoon supervisors. my name is nick as you said. i am a former chair of the shelter monitoring committee. we did work closely with supervisor tang's office to get rid of the onerous imminent danger policy. i am really glad we did that. i work as a shelter client advocate with the
12:56 am
collaborative and there five years and went to mexico for a while and got my old job back. i am a volunteer for the coalition on homelessness. as i said i was the former chair of the shelter monitoring committee. from my point of view a good relationship with hsa and the shelter management through my day job i am able to interact with them on a daily basis. it's a very good benefit on behalf of the position i am seeking for the shelter monitoring committee. i seek spanish. it's much better after visiting mexico and i speak spanish. in terms what i want to get done. there are lots of issues affecting san franciscans without housing. one is the curfew policy of the shelters if someone goes to the hospital for a couple of nights they lose the bed and not able to get it back and things to look at and work
12:57 am
with the board to adjust the legislation on the shelter monitoring committee so i don't know if there are there questions. >> i don't have any questions only because i got to work with you closely when you were on the shelter monitoring committee and i want to thank you as well on the imminent danger policy among other things but colleagues do you have questions or comments? okay. >> real quick i just want to say i do want to speak on behalf of applicant med -- ms. gains and there aren't women on the committee and women of color and word for her and also terezie bohrer and she was on the committee when i was chair and speak on behalf of those applicants as well. thank you. >> thank you so much. at this time we will open up item 4 to public comment. i have a couple cards and if you want to come up do that as well.
12:58 am
[calling speaker names] >> hi supervisors. i am gary mccoy. good to see you all this morning. i am currently on the shelter monitoring committee and also serve as the policy sub-committee chair. however, i am here speaking on behalf of myself and not behalf of the committee. we have a lot of qualified candidates which is great. you know it's really fantastic to see this level of support and willingness to do this, this position. you know it is a lot of work and it requires a lot of dedication. i am here today to speak on behalf of the lauren kahn who i had the pleasure of being not only friends with but a colleague at various occasions, and i also work with a lot of people in the community and her name comes up probably about twice a month with the work that she does with
12:59 am
walden house and health right 360 and i know she's very dedicated at she does and have a big heart and welcome your support for lauren kahn. >> thank you very much. ms. rojas from president breed's office. >> >> i am here to speak on behalf of lauren kahn and in supervisor breed's office and worked on a personal and professional capacity. we're happy to recommend her. we have a letter of support from supervisor breed. lauren is a incredible compassionate and empathetic person and organized and data driven and focused on results and we really appreciate that here. she's over ten years working with the homeless community in san francisco and as a leader with health right 360 we think she would be a
1:00 am
great asset to this committee so thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker please. >> good morning. i would like to recommend also lauren kahn for seat three and four on the shelter monitoring committee. i had the pleasure of working as a supervisor and coworker and community partner as served in different roles in san francisco in the last ten years and witnessed the passion for serving the community and those at risk through direct services and quality improvement efforts and this work and gives her a valuable perspective for the shelter monitoring committee. working with people struggling with homelessness and access to services and employment and housing in san francisco and understands the barriers that the homeless community faces. i have seen her compassion, respect and commitment to maintaining dignity for everyone that she serves. having worked
1:01 am
in quality assurance and compliance lauren appreciates the need for program monitoring and data driven quality improvement efforts. i have seen her passion for ensuring safety, proper documentation and pushing for needed improvements. additionally her work in policy and advocacy demonstrates the commitment to improve the systems of care for the most vulnerable members and creative thoughtful and dedicated and compassionate and i enjoyed my time working with her and you will too and i know everyone on the shelter monitoring committee would appreciate her part the team and full of energy and enthusiasm for her work so i would like to recommend her. >> thank you very much. next speaker please. >> hi. i am karen shane from the san francisco reentry council, back again. i wanted
1:02 am
to talk briefly about leslie bilbro who is a member of the operational and practices subcommittee of the reentry council and has been probably the most responsible member of that subcommittee. she came in sort of -- we had no idea who she was two years ago and she's been coming to every single meeting. i don't think she missed a single one since then and deep love for community and also a really terrific facilitator and worked closely with me on the five community meetings that the reentry council convened across the city to discuss racial and ethnic disparities in san francisco criminal justice system and worked so hard and made a difference creating the events and made them successful. she facilitated conversations in the meetings and did a great job. she's ready and willing to volunteer for tasks within our committee and spoke to the council on behalf of the subcommittee and did a great job explaining a policy issue that
1:03 am
the subcommittee brought to the reentry council and she's currently working on a training we will do for the subcommittee regarding state policy processes. quite honestly there is no one in the three subcommittees committed to the work that we do. given the nexus of the homelessness and criminal justice brings a tremendous qualification and capacity to bring those two together. you won't have a more effective committee member, i can promise you that. finally i tbl says -- i think that she actually qualifies for seat five as you figure out how you're going to do this and good luck. you have many qualified people and my only concern if she becomes a member of the shelter monitoring committee it may give her less capacity to be on the operational and practices subcommittee but i think she will figure it out. >> thank you very much. next
1:04 am
speaker please. >> good afternoon. my name is leslie lavitas and i am supporting the application of lauren kahn. i am a member -- i am one of mayor lee's appointees to the reentry council however i am speaking as a member of the public. i wanted to say that i know of lauren's deep understanding of the population who access the shelter system. i have worked with county jail populations for about 20 years, and lauren's commitment to those folks and their needs has been stated by many people so i just want toes also echo that, and the effect of her awareness of the critical housing, the shortage of resources, and the importance of the shelter system as a resource for folks
1:05 am
reentering following periods of incarceration, and i also want to echo -- so i think she would be an excellent member and serve the city and the community well. i want to echo one of the earlier speakers' comments about the importance of appointing women to the shell shall especially for the -- shelter monitoring committee and formerly incarcerated women have a huge need for the service and typically underserved population within the criminal justice system. women do not often get access to equitable services as available for men who are just as involved and historically there's tremendous data showing the need for more support and resources for women as they reenter the community. i think having women serve on the committee would help us keep that issue in the forefront.
1:06 am
thank you. >> thank you very much. any other members of the public who wish to comment on item 4? seeing none. public comment is now closed. [gavel] i want to thank all the applicants here today not only just to speak on the shelter monitoring committee but really for all of your ongoing work in the community. clearly we have a pool of really great applicants. i have one clarifying question. it looks like based on one of the public commenters that ms. leslie bilbro could qualify for seat five. i was looking through the pablget and the recommendation letter is from the code tenderloin director and i thought it was a start up. is that the nomination from the non-profit or is there another non-profit agency that is nominating leslie bilbro? ms. bilbro. >> that is the nomination from the non-profit. originally i submitted my application to the local homeless coordinating
1:07 am
board and was unsuccessful so it was just for seat three specifically bevia this process i added four and six and should have added five so that's why it's that way. >> all right. great. thank you for that clarification. >> you're welcome. >> mr. clerk even though it's not listed on the agenda we can still consider them? >> yes, that's correct madam chair. >> great. listening to the interviews and i looked through your applications as well and again this is a difficult choice to make and i don't want anyone to be offended but there's not enough seats for the applicants here today and like we say in rules committee if you don't get on this time always reapply and there are opportunities that come up again so if i make a suggestion to committee members and what i heard and make up of the committee for seat one i would like to recommend patrina hall. for seat two loretta
1:08 am
gaines. three seat nicholas kimura. seat four lauren kahn. seat five leslie bilbro. seat six traci watson. so those are my suggestions and i would be happy to hear from committee members. supervisor cohen. >> i am happy to hear from you. a quick question. did we hear from jonathan blackman. >> we did. from the salvation army. >> thank you mr. black man i appreciate it. i am happy to support your recommendations chair tang. >> >> supervisor fewer. >> yes. supervisor tang can you please repeat those nominations? >> sure. for seat one patrina hall. seat two loretta gaines, seat three nicholas kimura, seat four lauren kahn, seat five
1:09 am
leslie bilbro, seat six traci watson. >> so i have different people on my list. would you like to me read them off? >> sure. >> seat one patrina hall. seat two loretta gaines. seat three traci watson. seat four terezie bohrer. seat five raymond benton. seat six nicholas kimura. >> i'm sorry you said seat five was? >> raymond benton. >> okay. based on that it looks like we have a difference of two individuals, raymond benton and terezie bohrer. >> yes. >> so given that -- i don't know if supervisor cohen with that would you like to make a change to your recommendations? i think i will stick with mine. >> i am happy to entertain
1:10 am
terezie bohrer put on -- [inaudible] >> and that was for seat -- i'm not sure of the seat. >> seat number 4. >> is that the only seat she's qualifies for? i am supporting lauren kahn for seat four so i don't have room to -- >> i believe seat three swap then. >> seat three. >> although i would like to keep nicholas kimura who does speak spanish and has a track record of work on this committee. >> may i interject madam chair. >> supervisor cohen. >> i am happy to support with my initial indication of supporting the folks you supported, the folks that you called into the record with the assigned seats. >> okay. okay. i did want to try to accommodate but i think it would have thrown off the other recommendation. >> yeah. >> so with that then -- i
1:11 am
don't know if you want to make the motion then, supervisor cohen. >> just restate it. >> okay. one more time? >> yeah. >> all right. seat one patrina hall. seat two loretta gaines. seat three nicholas kimura. seat four lauren kahn. seat five leslie bilbro and seat six traci watson. okay. >> hold on. >> all right. i will second that motion. >> okay. >> and do we need a roll call vote? >> no.
1:12 am
>> without objection. >> [inaudible] [off mic] the majority of people, the appointees we agree on and everyone is highly qualified. >> great. so we will do that without objection then. [gavel] thank you very much for bearing with us through that. all right mr. clerk are there any other items before us today. >> there is no more business before the committee madam chair. >> thank you very much and i want to thank mr. clerk and supervisor cohen's service on the rules committee as well. the meeting is adjourned.

2:11 am
four and a half years (laughter) the best goals always started as a dream and the people give it a time limit all our group to help made this happen so for the opening is the world-class venue required 9 years 9 years who but dreamers would undertake that kind of a journey you have to be a dreamer and allow yourselves to be pulled through it has to pull you and compel and make you go over all the obstacles and believe in that dreamers they face all the way down kinds of things and difficulties but push forward their dyslexia they push, push, push to get they are goals done.
2:12 am
>> we all draw if past references certainly for our dreams i had mine in the entertainment business the entertainment business you have a lot of surveys they use the f word and boy it hurts but have to give up we had a lot of bumps those bumps made us stronger and better and the changes made us better i've had films that takes 5 years to get made and shown in the theatre willie brown we built together the audience was so upset and stormed out of the theatre and shock the limousine how you handle the corrections and how you do that determines our ultimate outcome always determines the outcome you make
2:13 am
necessary changes the men and women in our organization we speak to and for today none westbound passengers all worked the three has made the different their tongue and wallet traveled in the same direction you believed them and they could lead you to o so the infrastructure grant fouls all because of the groundbreaking probably not next time builds a range of people and thing that will be protesting we'll see it through we haven't started shooting this movie you hear something say let's see a film on budget no, we have to do the work our teem with all the bumps
2:14 am
in the road rather we doubled down on the commitment to see it through and shape our dream much more to realize much more we can't suffer the faded of prematurity jubilation but our perseverance and determination will see us through but this dream is more than a venue of concrete you'll attract the artists they'll be drawn to this vessel in san francisco so perform and be the beacon and live and work rod other teams the glorious political events every city needs e needs one it is con superstitious but why is it so important because this we are not vigil people we're
2:15 am
analogies we chore the diversity of our species men and women and different gender and everything sharing laughing and crying together that's the purpose of those campfires and those venues every city needs it it had been great for san francisco. >> (clapping.) >> think of the essence of products with the house of dreams our dreams and children's dreams and shared expense the key won't would be the aptitude but the attitude of the builders did attitudes puts an to do on stare resides and attitude makes the difference show me someone with great attitude i'll show you a hit a success. >> so the key to us now is to
2:16 am
build it to get it done more action and less talk the whole damn process will be fought with parietal we have to cast it away and keep that vision strong and pull it pull up to it. >> nelson mandela said to me this misguided adversary can't take away your dreams colleagues this will continue to challenge you they'll scare you but keep you motivated you'll take greater focus to get us they're up there let's hope we didn't come this far to come this far yesterday is not the dedication only a station to realize this dream go for the great and enjoy
2:17 am

2:19 am
center of social changes as technologies and cities are revitalized remust make sure that the individuals at the margin are brought in and 3w506r9d up while those in the middle are not pushed out over the next 3 years j.p. morgan chase will be investing $25 million to support initiated that help the bay area to continue on a pathway to more inclusive economic growth yes. >> (clapping.) >> as part of this commitment we announced last week chase center assist is community initiative that will tackle head on the bay area economic and social challenges by creating pathways to opportunity in a
2:20 am
series of powerful local partnerships chase center will focus on 3 pillars last year small business growth and housing development and education and workforce readiness we believe those are a powerful compliment to the important work the warriors are doing an incredible team and one of the most vibrant regions in the country i want to thank the team orientals joe and peter uber and wanting rick wells and mayor ed lee and the board of supervisors coach steve occurring and all the warriors players for all the pirnl and thank you for all you do i love basketball as sports growing up any entire life and love the quote teamwork makes

2:22 am
the golden state warriors during the 1989, 1999 during the lockout you bring those guys to vegas it get crazy in the casino goose in the private rooms gambling for a lot of money he look over at the $5 tackle between a grandmother and two guys in cowboy hats is steve occurring nursing $20 chips a man that will not get caught up in the behind the coach the golden state warriors steve occurring. >> (clapping.) >> thank you thank you i'm going to change gears everything has been said about the buildings i've been in the bay for 2 and a half years grew
2:23 am
up in los angeles god and boo i spent the last 12 years of my life in san diego you can go ahead and yawn if you want my point i'm a southern californian you mating may be able to tell by my attire i got dressed up i did there are fans and dress fancy really want to say if you're lucky enough in lifelike i've been you reach a point you get to choose when you work with and includes where you live and choose where you work by those metrics i want to stay here forever. >> (clapping.) >> i'm also an nba coach this
2:24 am
building will take 3 years to build the chances of me standing on the sidelines for the warriors are slim to hope as far so good hopefully, i'll still be here. >> (clapping.) >> i want to say something very important that say that i was lucky enough to get this job and to be become part of the partnership with joe and peter and rick wells and bob myers when i interviewed for this job that's the selling point that's what i bought into this is an incredible franchisee that is only begun to scrape the surface the fan base i placed for 15 years to play against bad teams
2:25 am
the fans went crazy we have amazing fans the ownership and the support i get from this group is fantastic behind the scenes e-mails and providing constant support is amazing rick and i worked together in phoenix for several years knowing rick was the president of the golden state warriors made me want to come an amazing group of people i want to point out bob myers that may have nothing to do with - >> (clapping.) >> he may have nothing to do with the construction of that but everything to do with the construction of kevin and our roster the most important asset we have bob has been an amazing partner an amazing general
2:26 am
manager but an even better friend in his mind when you put together a group of people that are committed to each other and the franchisee and to the warriors special things can happen that's exactly what happened here i want to make one final point about the ownership the fact that arena is privately functions is so important because i've before a sports man fanning any whole life living in san diego the late 12 years the charges were ripped away from that community i know there are a lot of economic factors and political issues you have an ownership group that recognizes they don't really own the team they write the checks but the community owns the team that's true. >> (clapping.) >> but the bay area owns the
2:27 am
team and they have a tremendous task as guardian of franchise and their taking on tremendous risk with the financial commitments at no cost to the city that is almost unheard of these days in professional sports i want to acknowledge that with an o vacation. >> (clapping.) >> the best way to mitigate it risk to put a great team have our business did not have a great product to sell we're fortunate we've been able to do that we only enhanced that with the arrival of the k d and. >> (clapping.) >> and i can be very honest when
2:28 am
i say that is a thrill a enjoy to coach and team as talented as this group and more gratifying to come to work everyday and enjoy the playgrounds for who they are as human beings kevin is representing our team today, our roster other guys are practicing potrero and i are taking the day off we earned it after last night. >> (clapping.) >> but ultimately what will make that building successful it the fans and the fan base that has supported this franchisee and the players who are playing high-level basketball in providing entertainment so at that point i'd like to bring up cal works d we'll move on.
2:29 am
>> (clapping.) >> one of the things that has been talked about today is what an amazing practices the bay area is the physical bout and cultural aspects i know one of the reasons you wanted to come here have you come into the city quite a bit. >> oh, yeah, he come a lot 0 one thing i see i talked with people in san francisco over in oakland and the east bay they selected this team for their team with the support and love is key makes coming in work better and we are existed for the future happy i'm here. >> you come here every night after games. >> yeah. >> a couple of restaurant he drives across country every game why not. >> why not. >> i know that mike was here
