thank you supervisors i'm tony gonzales with american indian movement west. i share the same as what was said earlier i content the supervisors for taking the position to change legislation to include the particular tactic of harassment by landlords etc. i'm not just speaking for my organization as a vietnam veteran and the westerns that are here it facts many people. it's a shame that the rich culture that the city has projected to the outer public is in the state of problems right now. there's a lot of resentment we see those big buses that driving around here that creates the
7:31 pm
resentment to the topic. we hope there's a a balance to keep our people's here all the superdomes of society and in particular our art and cultural workings are being affected. like a brain drain that goes on in other countries there's a cultural drain here for us to maintain the cultures is to also find ways thinking about the artist in our communities and filmmakers and those who are trying to stay here and work inform the community have a hard time finding a plays to thank you very much >> thank you. next speaker, please. >>. i'm with the san francisco tenants union. thank you supervisors so far bringing this legislation back.
7:32 pm
harassment is definitely on the increase and a fashd way to get tenants out of their part times. as supervisor campos note it's a difficult issue for tenants to deal with. senile they need to live with harassment long enough until an attorney feels their suffered medical bills and that sort of thing enormously to say most tenants can't survive through the harassment and it's an effective way of getting tenants out. this legislation corrects the issue of prop m passed by the voter that denied and prohibited harassment but unfortunately, the courts throw out the issue. this denies harassment an

illegal evict attempt and go to the rent board and have it investigated. in addition to being a city attorney and district attorney prop a put in the statute for $200 a day so tenants can go to small claims court and get a monetary settlement. so thank you supervisors >> any >> prayer by the chaplain. >>. seeing none, public comment is closed. this matter is back in the hands of the board. supervisor campos. thank you >> i want to thank the committee for hearing this item and essentially all the tenant and their advocates that have
7:34 pm
come out to the hearing. >> (speaking spanish.) >> so with that, i think that it goes without saying that for me it means a lot to hear if the tenants its not easy to hear our
7:35 pm
experiences it's a perm and painful thing that impacts the individual and the entire family especially on kids. and so i think this is something that is a long time overdue and something we need to move forward as quickly as possible to provide relief. i think beyond that my hope it will send a clear message to landlord that this kind of harassment is not going to be tolerated in san francisco. there's an avenue where the tenant can go to the rent board and it could be forwarded to the city attorney or the district attorney. i hope this sends a clear message especially, when it comes to some of the tenants that have been the targets of
