8:45 am
we are laying it down this morning with a little bit of iron maiden. that will get you out of bed. good morning. we are glad that you are with us today and well waking up. >> i actually know him and that was a request that came through over the phone. he is a metalhead. >> i will say that weather is improving today. we have the clouds out there. we have visibility improving. we have dry weather in the forecast. we have all the details coming up. we have a lot of weather. there is a community meeting. the areas were heavily flooded by the recent storms. it is on the telephone based on the sonoma county board of supervisors. good morning. >> good morning.
8:46 am
>> tell us, what can folks expect at the meeting today? what is the biggest concern on this sunday? >> i think the biggest concern is to make sure the people can get back to some kind of semblance of normalcy. we want to see that many structures damage. but people with river are very resilient. the dupree removal is there. we are putting forward with five different groups. we have reentry cleanup kits. we have county representatives and state representatives including the california hope and we will have at&t there talking about self-service and phone service. we have united policy holders talking about
8:47 am
insurance issues. we're also going to open what is called a local assistance center at the former bank of america building. that is going to have county offices, state offices, including the dmv, department of insurance, state licensing board, and some of the nonprofit partners. that will be open today at noon. will stay open from 9:00 until 6:00 until next saturday. we will reassess the need thereafter. things are in full recovery mode. >> we are looking at some of the video from the last week and let's talk about the people as well. the floods come, if not every year, but every 3 years. how are they coping? >> the people have lived through these over the course of time to understand that. this is the largest flooded about 25 years.
8:48 am
we had a flight overflowing the banks just a few weeks ago. that was minor and just one into a few parking lots maybe a structure or two. this is pretty substantial. the russian river area, besides being a great tourist area and a place to go the summer months, also has lower and housing. folks who are lower income. so those are folks that we are very concerned about making sure that they have a place to land when the homes get cleaned up as quickly as possible going forward. we really want to make sure that they are resilient, but at some point, it becomes tough going forward. >> the governor disk declared a state of emergency. that means of financial support will be coming. when you actually see the money from the federal government? >> we do not have anything yet from the federal government.
8:49 am
this is just a state determination. the state has been great. they do come in. they have been here from day one. fema is here as well. fema is here because it is anticipated that the state will file on our behalf a declaration on the federal side. of course, what you want to do is make sure that you are all on the same page and all of the numbers are coalescing the same way. there is a lot, as you can imagine, a lot of bureaucratic formulas for that, making sure that it is all about board, which of course it is. that is what we are doing right now. we're working with all of our partners. we really want -- we are about halfway through the assessments and inspections of the structures. will probably finish it by the end of the day today if not tomorrow. then we will be working with fema tomorrow afternoon into tuesday. that is a pretty quick clip for these types of events. even getting the debris removal up and going just a couple days after the water goes down is a
8:50 am
quick turnaround, because as you can imagine, there are couple of feet in some locations of just mud and silts. usually after clean that stuff out and be able to find that it could take a week to get debris removal up and going. it has gone very quickly. part of that is because of the people and the great work by the county, i believe, and our state and federal partners. >> thank you. we will stay thank you and wish you all the best for the meeting today. and the recovery efforts which have come a long way in such a short time. >> thank you so much for sharing this update with us. the community meeting is at for us fill. it is from 2:00 until 4:00 this after. it will include the chairman along with the legal resources, counseling services, at&t, and information on cleanup and the read debris removal today at

8:54 am
that we are getting is that right now, the plume of moisture could cause so much devastation and hopefully will not cause of the central coast is not heading toward the north bay where we have had so many problems as we were talking about with the russian river. it is important that we are getting a respite because of saturated ground there and a lot of peanut. >> they just need some time. >> coming up, how local leaders are remembering him and the public memorial being planned in his honor. the warriors were off to a rough start but they were able to bounce back. highlights from last night's game. seresto, seresto, seresto.

the city of san francisco is going to have a public memorial tomorrow for public defender jeff adachi. there trying to make sense of his shocking death. they called him a champion for justice and syllable liberty. we're joined by a member of the public defenders office an attorney for the misdemeanor unit. you're one of his first hires. it is short anniversary with the public defender's office. who was jeff to you? we hear so much about the work that he has done and what he
9:14 am
was a passionate about. you saw him on many different levels. you are both a public defender and his friend. >> jeff is a champion for justice. he was a voice for the voiceless and for the people who are ignored. and besides that, one thing that was amazing about him is that he fought for true criminal justice reform. and across the country and different countries, he brought to justice everywhere. >> we saw the vigil that you held at the 1300 people what are you seeing from the people who are showing up? everyone from political leaders to people that came to the office looking for someone to give them a voice. what is the sentiment that you are hearing from people in terms of what the legacy is that he leaves behind? >> what is amazing about the vigil is that i was put together by the community and not by our office. we have course participated in it, but we had people from all
9:15 am
walks of life that he has touched from every community in san francisco all across the bay area in the country. think the beautiful thing about jeff is that he never ran away from injustice. he ran towards his and ran to fight against injustice. for us, it is like we are in war fighting against injustice and we lost our general. >> you have an important job. you give a voice for people in some of the most public cases that we as journalists cover. there may be at the time of the crime, some was saying, look everyone needs to be defended. and jeff adachi, as he stood there, he was always so resolute in his belief in the importance of giving a voice to people and so calm and to study about that. terms of the office and all of the attorneys and their now who are working without their general, you have him leading
9:16 am
the office. what had it been like for you in the office? and for all of the attorneys that are working without him now? >> i think it has been shocking and devastating for all of us who care about him. and losing your general. but the sentiment that we have is that were fighting even harder. jeff is watching us now and now we have to fight harder and be stronger. what he has built in that office cannot be undone. we have so many passionate, vigorous defense attorneys and our support staff. we have so many units that did not exist before he got there. we have an immigration units and defending people from being sent to countries where they can be persecuted. our clean slate unit were people are having their records cleared. each client has benefited from just the work from jeff. >> this is kind of the secret
9:17 am
weapon of what jeff adachi is about . >> he fought hard and he partied hard. he liked to go out and enjoy life. i know that he has lived a full life. he would go to conferences and meetings. he would fight for the community and then be with the community members in the community then go out and have a drink and dance and enjoy life. >> he was a busy guy. just in terms of his day. >> the joke was that he was always at another meeting every night. maybe even 4 meetings per night. something had to be done, he was there. >> a port about protecting his legacy. what about some of the details of come out about his passing and the death investigation that is underway? >> i think it is fitting that even in his death, he continues to uncover police misconduct.
9:18 am
what happened here is that you have officers who are not part of the brass in the police department leaking false stories and police reports on the day of his death. people of color killed by police officers and their families cannot get police reports or information. but then with hours of his death, their pictures of where he died. where this is coming from, and it is very clear, and it is that there is an organization which is the unit for the police. and they do not like jeff because he uncovers police misconduct a wants the officers off the force. they are the biggest barrier to true police reform. they do not even like the chief because the chief also wants to reform the department. it would be a point right now to have the police officers union responsible and response to that. is a very strong worse. what are you hoping in terms of moving forward?
9:19 am
you have the memorial today and you have certainly a lot of people who will come out today for jeff. what you want this to be about tomorrow? for the memorial tomorrow? >> tomorrow should be about celebrating his legacy. no matter what it said, trying to tarnish that, it cannot be tarnished. the communities that he has brought together, the criminal justice reform that he has conducted. and fighting for immigration and fighting in san francisco now. every juvenile has a chance and a right to an attorney before being questioned. and of course, they are not here. but on gary delaney's facebook page is spreading more false rumors and even in the newsletters, their telling that the officers cannot respect jeff and it is offensive. >> a response in any way? are you asking for anything or are you asking to the chief
9:20 am
saying that we need response to this? what is that? we will reach out to gary delaney get his response to continue to follow, but argue, as an office, saying to anyone, asking for action. >> the board of supervisors is conducting an inquiry. there was a 10-1 vote to look into the issue. the one supervisor who voted no is sponsored by the police. >> you feel like they're listening to you? do you feel like you're getting a good response from them? >> i believe the mayor truly believes in what the office stands for. the mayor himself has a brother in prison and understands how important a vigorous defense is. i know that the mayor's office, the police department, the board of supervisors are very unhappy about the false reports were during the death and that the police permit should do
9:21 am
something. >> do you think any of this is relevant to jeff adachi's death. >> i think anything is relevant to his death. there tarnishing the great man. nothing that they can say can tarnish the image. thank you so much. we appreciate your time. we're sorry for your loss as a friend. and certainly a lot of people will be making their way out to san francisco tomorrow. the jeff adachi memorial service will be at city hall at 11:00 in the morning. event is open to the public. let's go over to kyla grogan for look at how the sunday is shaping up. we will take a look at the
