6:24 pm
decisions in people who don't use the best judgment are why as someone grouping in public housing experiencesed some of the challenges the lack of appropriate social services and the lack of access and the quality programming overall. i want to make sure that when people are put in the positions to make decisions for people that i represent that i know i can trust they'll have the best interests for them. i don't know if i feel the judgment of this gentleman in the case of the situation i dealt with and in contrast i'll not be supporting him today >> supervisor mar. >> i want to speak in favor of eddy i understand what my colleagues are saying about
