6:11 am
hayward started with the city and county of san francisco of 2006 working in the planning department and managed many challenging projects and worked collaboratively to incorporate preservation policies providing a balanced approach to preservation and further the preservation goals then in march of 2011 ms. hayward transferred herself into a legislative planner for the planning department issues from the calculated and technical that is formula retail and housing to more things like tobacco and paraphernalia and bowling alleys that serve alcohol and ms. hayward will be recommended from her high degree of professionalism in a articulate manner and often a friendly attitude in her interactions with the public and staff and ms. hayward has developed a
6:12 am
drive to address the city's most perplexing issues that brought her to the mayor's office of housing and community development and there she was structural in furthering the work of mohcd including facilitating the rental assistance program and hope sf ax open acting a lesson between the department and board of supervisors on the ahbp to the housing policies have impacted the lives of san franciscans and her enthusiasm in tackling the ordinances will be dearly missed on a personal level i've come to know sophie and a motto planning to mohcd and just watching her and working with her as we
6:13 am
tackled difficult issues in san francisco has been an honor to work with you the way you oversee to me an e-mail at 10 o'clock at noting night with a thoeft an urban wavering determination to handle things people through at you i'm sad to see you leave city government when people think of city workers sometimes they're might not be the most positive perspective but you break troubleshoot stereotyped to determine and finding creative solutions to challenges i'm going to a miss you but wish you the best so thank you very much ms. hayward and looking forward
6:14 am
to giving you the opportunity to speak i know you have a friends and family your sister and, of course, your colleagues if both departments and director from mohcd and director rahaim from the planning department i want to give you an opportunity to say a few words thank you. >> and also there are other members of the board of supervisors that definitely would like an opportunity to make comments as well director rahaim thank you for being here. >> thank you supervisors and supervisor tang for honoring sophie you'll miss her terrible she started as a preservation planner and went on to do legislative work that work with peeked here interest in affordable housing so i then lost her to olsen unfortunately but i think that the
6:15 am
proclamation said it well, she's handled the work with the thoughtfulness and the word to describe her, her grace in handing the issues in terms of dealing with the planning commission and the public this body handling it thoroughly throughout the period we'll all mess that terribly and sophie is one of the reasons the two agencies the planning department and mohcd has an incredibly positive and constructive working relationship probably a testament how departments work together a seamless relationship and, of course, enabled by director lee and kate hartley and others that relationship between sophie and our staff has been preview and helpful in the work and a model how agencies work together i appreciate the conformation and recognize
6:16 am
sophie for our outstanding work. >> thank you, mr. lee. >> welcome. >> thank you what can we say. >> what did you do to chase her away (laughter) just a workload i can return the - >> (laughter). oh, >> fair enough one of the things that i think everybody really appreciate about sophie and one of her dedications to the city; right? she's to dedicated to do the right thing and push things along to get things done and she's demonstrated that with the planning department and definitely at the mayor's office of housing and community development we - she worked on many issues where they were very difficult issues with people
6:17 am
that were very, very industry dents on each side of the issues one of her robots so listen to both sides and see if there's an ability to come to a solution somewhere in the middle and in many she was able to do that and helped to get the legislation through at the state level and also working with our federal delegation with the federal version of the neighborhood preference and it is really a testament to her ability to work with people i think that you know one of the things no one has skewed me of doing well sophie has done that extremely well, in the city a
6:18 am
reflection how she will be remembered she'll be remembered as a fear and compassionate and a person that licenses to everybody and none will say a bad word about sophie a great loss for you office we we've got a lot more work to do and sophie was an important person and completing that work and we will greatly miss her and the work she did but greatly mess how she did her work that's the thing i want to say more importantly to sophie the way you carried yourself and the professionalism and the personal safety and dealing with all the difficult issues thank you sophie for your time in the housing and community development. >> thank you supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor president london breed. >> sophie you can come back

6:20 am
efshlgs is assessing one person i've enjoyed working with you're not the only one but one of the ones you're so committed to the issues we've crossed pathways with and i think all of the things people said already will be true and are true but one of the things i want to point out you're one of the people i can talk to about caregiver issues and someone those are nuances and got the people glows over and say yeah, we need childcare but we'll miss that perspective and hoping you'll continue to dialogue with other people in city so we can all get on the same page for this issue. >> thank you supervisor cowen.
6:21 am
>> thank you sophie i hope when you walk out of the doors of city hall today, you'll be able to walk back with a sense of pride with a profound not only providence work experience but walking away with an ally of friends to move forward i'm sure our paths will cross again many of the people that doesn't know sophie know there is a genuine sweetness and a real commitment to honor the truth and recognize human decency within everyone folks she founds herself in disagreement that's a rare find today period but a critical one when we think of people that are, dedicating public servant
6:22 am

6:23 am
it is been a real pleasure to work with you i'm happy you worked with my office and an optimism and not sure where you're going but i think that is important that people that work for government stand to show that governments works with the example at the federal government a huge effort point republicans passed the example that we have here with you shows that there is an alternative this should be - i hope you'll work for government. >> wish you all the best and thank you for your work. >> thank you supervisor avalos supervisor mar. >> i know nick and i are the ones that working closely with you in making the city better for everyone i noticed in the richmond district i know you and

6:25 am
carry it inside and you do good and ma tissues support you deeply care when our at planning department and mohcd has been the same i know that in my office when you took the new jobs at mohcd we were thrilled you know i'm sure director rahaim was not necessarily thrived we knew that would make that easier and easier to work with the agency because you're so good at what you do in interac with challenges like the board of supervisors and i thank you for being there. >> supervisor campos. >> i'm not belabor this point that has been made by the
6:26 am
colleagues in thinking about you being out there very few people in fact, i cannot think of more than a couple would be in a position to have all the things said about them said by all the supervisors so that's a compliment to you and a testament to the professionalism with the work and you know anytime you run across really outstanding quality people not only as a personal and professional side in city government you always want them to stay unfortunately, the way this works sometimes is that because there are challenging to do this work especially, if you're a quality person but whatever you decide
6:27 am

6:46 am
2008, and it is now a 44 unit building that is 7 stories tall and it is suspicious that a 44 unit building 7 stories high that is increases in scope not required per the placing not requiring an eir they in fact, approved this permit and there are 4 basis for the eir of denying the eir assuming there shouldn't be would be and the conclusion no possible significant effect and that just can't be so what i ask is this board reject this map send this back to the planning commission and ask them to have the proposed owners of this property conduct an i went for the property that is significant i mean - thank you, supervisors. >> thank you.
6:47 am
>> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon your honor i'm the proprietor of that property that was bring to your attention that the other reason the board of supervisors approved that project they were led to believe that the real estate developers rose if london have cut a deal with myself and agreed to accepting sell them the property brought to your attention this is untrhat's all i have to say. >> any other members of the public just to be clear the appeal is withdrawn the board will not be entertaining this particular appeal with that, public comment is closed. and there has a been a motion and second to table colleagues without objection, without objection this item has been building table.
6:48 am
>> all right the next 3:00 p.m. special order. >> with the motion approved in 2016 the board of supervisors has agreed to queen a committee as a whole for a subject of item 43 a resolution of necessity authorizing the necessity of the real property on galvin avenue by eminent domain for the business of completing and constructing the shops relocation. >> the purpose to hear the testimony on a resolution of the necessity authorizing the acquisition at the real property at 1919 avenue by eminent domain for the public purpose of constructing the central
6:49 am
relocation would any supervisors like to make a comment. >> supervisor peskin. >> i understand the need for the acquisition of this property and thinks that the motion carries of him leader has been running at the second board meeting owe attended when i was re-elected on december 15th the purchase of this property came brat board and you recall i while i voted for that i raised concerns about the fact this was an acquisition of real property without the benefit of an appraisal of the property and was as you recall based on a number of capriciously sales that were procured by the department of real estate but i don't feel comfortable by the way, they were listing of the properties pdrs properties in
6:50 am
the southeast corner of the city like i said a listing is not a sale make and compatible sales don't an appraisal make i understand the urgent needs to acquire at this time, the real estate and the city merchants office and the public works knew they were buying a piece of property to a lease that can be extended i'm remarkably disappointed we're you here a year later this has not been resolved the lease was stechld to a value of $200,000 now looks like a $1.2 million cost to the puc and i just have to express
6:51 am
this is not okay. if this was in the private sector and somebody estimated $200,000 and came in 6 times that much i mean not good enough for government and the private sector i have to express someone needs to say it how disappointed i am that million two should have been a deduction from the purchase price we should have bought that property for 3 housing unit 8 or whatever but be compatible sales that shows a square foot value that maybe higher than the condemnation of the lease but it is no way to run a railroad or a public utility i had to say that for the record. >> thank you supervisor peskin for your opening remarks. >> supervisor cowen.
6:52 am
>> i find the city in the quagmire often we have a resolution it allows the city to exercise eminent domain for 1975 galvin that ultimately allows the sfpuc to complete and construct central shop projects central shop an intralg integral part of city government function helps us to do our job getting to and from and the frustration for me how sloppy i think that particular project has been handled supervisor peskin talked about approval and purpose order and the amount of the property and
6:53 am
how it is ballooned do we - not engage because the real estate division didn't conduct an appraisal of the property or not engaged because the price was compatible to other industrial parks properties when, in fact, it wasn't this was a beggar problem and don't know in john updyke is here but really want to encourage the department to tighten it up i think that it is misrepresenting our tings as city officials but also misrepresenting the establishment of a world-class city like san francisco we should have honor and integrity in everything that we do when
6:54 am
people are paying attention or not paying attention from the largest issues to the commission on the status of women smallest details to ever dollars figure let's not forgot we're talking about taxpayers dollars discussing those options thank you. >> thank you supervisor cowen and just to be clear mr. updyke will be doing a presentation and wanted to make sure that the members of the board have an opportunity for opening remarks supervisor peskin. >> i neglected to say one thing that is, i do want to say for the record that mr. updyke and the reality division were cooperative and better to be safe than sorry we did chapter 23 of the administrative code so
6:55 am
going forward appraisals of the acquisitions of real property are legal requirements we fixed that and want to acknowledge that mr. updyke and his staff were helpful in writing chapter 23. >> and at this time seeing no other names on the roster, mr. updyke please present the item or the appropriate staff person. >> thank you, supervisor breed john updyke director of real estate i'm joined we bryan of the city attorney's office happy to answer. >> yes. questions one thing i want to say about the appraisal issue in a way this most portfolio for the blue line registration validated the
6:56 am
acquisitions price may have been more advantageous an ironic twist we reject not having the full information at the time of the item in december of 2015 but unfortunately, the speed at which the transaction needed to move forward to secure the property from the fee landowner forced us to move at a greater pace than we normally would with respect to the property at issue blue line rental on the companies effected they have one and 40 locations throughout the united states blue line was an entity and spun off into their corporate by this is a company
6:57 am
owned not franchised and employees that worked at the site we're not sure of they're residents not information that is to be disclosed this facilitates us keeping over 80 central shops and employees in the neighborhoods we have two blocks away from the location he think outside the box as positive outcome for this neighborhood and in this area. >> finally this so forth a process bryan can speak to that about the eminent domain process still ahead and how that gets resolved this begins a more formal process following the negotiations, which lasted throughout the spring and summer sins the closing of escrows in march of 2016 we were unable to come to an agreement with blue line with the purchase and that
6:58 am
is a step we must take to move forward. >> so thaitsz okay just to be clear we are in a committee as a whole on this particular item and at this time seeing no other names on the roster, we will open this up to public testimony specifically on this item anyone wish to comment to make comments on this particular item please come forward seeing none, public comment is closed. all right. colleagues would anyone like to make any final comments. >> this hearing has been held and is now closed we'll now reconvene as is board of supervisors for item 43.
6:59 am
>> madam clerk on item 43 can you please call the roll. >> supervisor mar supervisor peskin no. >> supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee supervisor avalos supervisor breed no supervisor campos supervisor cowen supervisor farrell supervisor kim there are 9 i's and two nos with supervisor peskin and supervisor breed in dissent the resolution is adapted all right. roll call for introduction. >> supervisor mar your first up to introduce new business. >> thank you. >> colleagues, i have a couple of items the first is an update and modernized bottle free

7:06 am
that happen to them he had something in the family a traffic passing of his sister so today, i'm going to do an in memoriam for his sister she passed away at her home in san jose on november 20th, 2016, her children a young sister, and brother other relatives and her best friend with there with her as they made her transition and her farther siren placed softly in the background she would have been 85 years old in 2017 she was married for more than 50 years and had 5 children.
7:07 am
(calling names) as long as jerry she greatly loved they are children and very proud of them as they say nowadays they never gave her any trouble she was the oldest of 7 children with two older brothers that died as - an older half brother and several grandchildren and others that called her a dearly name she was always oh, you something to eat and often placed others before herself she have a funny side to her as
7:08 am
one of her granddaughters said who else would pass by a cemetery and a nice place to have a picnic so today with sadness we offer our condolence to the family and do on in memoriam of her on behalf of her loving families that will always love her. >> the second item colleagues is a very personal item to me and it's hard to sort of talk about that budget supplemental in a personal way picture it is a very personal thing for me as you may have heard we've been working with public defender's
7:09 am
office jeff adachi and his incredible staff on a supplemental appropriation i'm officially introducing today, i want to thank my incredible staff, carlene (calling names) who has been working on this with me and thank you jeff adachi and his incredible staff (calling names) and the incredible group of lawyers and advocates that have been part of this but for me that is personal that was a 1985 on a cold night in january that as a 14-year-old kid i was crossing the bards with any mom and two little sisters and said this story before
7:10 am
but that is eary and scary to think about how my family and i came to this country in 1985 escaping graham to find ourselves electing donald trump as president. >> and one of the proud itself when i shared a moment not too many days ago in the rotunda of this building proud to stand with mayor ed lee and my colleagues as supervisors sending a clear message and a deliberate message now withstanding when the president elect principled in terms of the
7:11 am
deportation and taking away the money if sanctuary cities like san francisco time to send a clear message we will remain a sanctuary that notwithstanding the threat of taking away our federal funding i'm proud of that moment and i give credit to mayor ed lee he didn't have to do that i talked about how when i became a supervisor in 2008, i started my tenure as a member of the board of supervisors fighting efforts by then mayor gavin newsom to weaken sanctuary by taking away the right of due diligence of undocumented children and self-defense great that in contrast that then mayor numbing was trying to do to have
7:12 am
- what we're proposing is an extension of the action that board and the mayor took when we stood inside underneath the rotunda of city hall when we said we're a sanctuary what this action does it allows us to actually take the first concrete step to making sure when we say we're a sanctuary we mean that is it is one thing to say but taking steps to make that happen this is a proposal that will create universal recommendation for immigrants in the city and county of san francisco and let me be clear when we talked about undocumented people into our 40,
7:13 am
44 thousand illuminated e undocumented undocumented not just latinos we're talking about yet 40 percent of the undocumented are of latino descents but people of other ethnicities more than 40 percent are asian the largest number by the way, 11 thousands of that 44 thousand are people from mexico but the second largest number ten thousands are people that come from china so when we talk about undocumented immigration an issue that transcends ethic identify and why is this so critical to being a sanctuary if you do not provide legal recommendation to the 44 thousand people including a
7:14 am
couple of thousand already in the proceedings what you are basically doing is making sanctuary as a concept meaningless unless we take the step of getting ready for the duo portion - before trump becomes president bet we act it will be two late people will be deported donald trump said that 3 million poem with criminal backgrounds will be deported this insures that the thousand of people in detention proceeding get the legal recommendation they need to make sure that their rights are electricity this proposal includes a role for the public defender's office and for
7:15 am
community-based organizations and the $5 million that are asked for on a calendar year half of that goes to the public defender's office and someone asked why the public defender's office we're asking about criminal procedures that requires lawyers expertise and the model we're following is not a new model a model that has worked in the city of new york following that model from new york we have saying let's ask the public defender's office who are experts in criminal procedures to actually represent the people that are in detention and for the remainder where you have people hearsay of people that are in immigration preceding ask the other experts the lawyers that are working with goes to actually do that work and let's allow the public
7:16 am
defender's office to hire 10 new lawyers and allow the goes to hire additional lawyers so they can do their work why is that important now? i mean, the numbers are there thousand of people with detention and hundreds of people in preceding but actually personal and not just undocumented people that will benefit from this the hardest moment for me after trump was elected hearing from any sister who talked about any nephew who is american born but said mom are we mexican because we're guatemala >> she said why. >> he said trump said their
7:17 am
duo that concludes my report. mexicans is thyou guatemala. >> my in view of wants to know will we be deported getting ready now before the presidency begins we are sending a message to little can i see like my nephew regardless of your immigration status you have certain right this come by virtue of the united states constitution and that those rights are going to be protected and electricity anywhere in san francisco this is critical and important people say why not wait who know what
7:18 am
they'll do we already know what they'll know they said what i'll do they're going to begin the process of deporting millions of people we need to act now before the presidency of this individual begins so the had 4 thousand people that go to work with the morning knowing at a minimum they'll have a lawyer that will protect their voting rights so the thousand of kids that may not be undocumented themselves but perhaps the son or daughter of someone that is undocumented knows that when their parents take the tool they'll be back to pick up them they'll have a lawyer to make sure their voting rights mean something i will end with that we've had many fights and
7:19 am
differences but one of of the there's a silver lining to donald trump becoming president is that it actually provides some perspective not to minimize the differences we have and god knows i have my differences with the mayor and differences with the members of the board of supervisors on many important issues but on this we have to continue the unity we began and you have my commitment that we want to work together with this mayor we want to work together with that board i've spoken to supervisor president london breed i know is committed to making sure that is done in a way that is a unifying effort you have my commitment you have the commitment of this community that is here and with that, i want to ask if i want
7:20 am
people to know this is so for the folks from the community who are in the chamber to support this effort if you'reably to please stand the rest the country the rest of the world is watching and let san francisco as we did a few days back continue to be the leading voice that says people matter our values matter. >> and no punt intended we are not going to have any one trump the values that make us who we are thank you, supervisor kim thank you supervisor mar thank you supervisor avalos for
7:21 am

8:04 am
the road to think carefully how to share the city's infrastructure. >> thank you, supervisor kim colleagues seeing no other names on the roster, colleagues, can we take that same house, same call? the resolution is adopted unanimously madam clerk cotton item 54. >> item 54 is a motion to adopt findings reversing the planning department determination by a proposed project on 115 van ness doesn't require further environmental review under a community planted exemption. >> supervisor peskin. >> oh, i'm sorry supervisor campos. >> supervisor peskin and i get confused with each other all the time it's the height. >> bow tie and that's right that's right thank you madam president colleagues as you may know this is an item of a hearing that was
8:05 am
held at the board at the last meeting an interesting meeting and what we have here is finding that reflect a motion that was made and as supervisor so for the district and the maker of that motion i want to make a couple of things clear because i think is that this is a preentdz action by the board of supervisors is in in respect the option before the board were in a way perhaps not as clear in terms of capturing what we intend why i intended to happen i don't think the motion right now reflects what that intent and i actually know from talking with
8:06 am
not just the project sponsor but the appellants themselves not clear point motion reflects when what i think people want to come out but my view i was hoping to accomplish additional analysis on the question of whether socioeconomic changes like adapt had a physical impact on the environment and specifically relative to the existence and creation of the latino cultural district as supervisor cowen i think eloquently put the analysis went beyond the impact this project could to have on the latinos cultural district but actually what cumulative impact to happen because of several projects so what i've
8:07 am
done with the advice of legal counsel is and i think that staff has distribute changes to the motion to amend this motion that before us today actually amend the finding but amend the item including the motion the underlying motion amended reflect that what i don't want to see happen the entire project go back to planning that was not the intent the intent not to have a new set of entitlements be gotten by the project sponsor but that in fact, what we want to see it simply the planning department provide the additional analysis along the lines that i described in terms of the potential impacts of the latino culture district and that analysis be brought back to the board of supervisors for weighing and consideration and
8:08 am
then action the way that works right now the action that we took to the motion that i put forward and you voted for arguably requires what that project go back to planning and go through a set of approvals that was not the intent the intent from my perspective was always to have the additional analysis done and then have that analysis be brought back to the board of supervisors for consideration i like to do you have a document that has changes to the underlying motion what this will do to rescind the motion that was pass restoring the plan exemption determination and requesting additional information and there are technical changes to the motion that have been
8:09 am
included in a document you have based on the suggestion of the san francisco city attorney and the most important thing from any perspective is that wince that analysis and that report is concluded by the planning department that it will be brought back to the board of supervisors so this board at this point wants that a once that analysis is done decides how to move forward with that, i want to make a motion to amend the underlying motion along those lines and again, you have the document. >> thank you supervisor campos has made a motion to amend seconded by supervisor cowen colleagues without objection, without objection the amendments will pass and supervisor campos. >> now madam president i'd
8:10 am
like to make a motion to continue this item to the meeting of the board of supervisors on december 6th because the changes that we have made to the motions are substantive in nature and require that there be additional meetings and additional consideration for the other parties as well. >> okay supervisor campos has made a motion to amend to continue this item to the meeting of the december 6, 2016, is there a second. >> seconded by supervisor mar colleagues without objection without objection this item will be continued to the meeting of the december 6, 2016. >> all right. madam clerk i think we have two imperative items. >> supervisor wiener you have an imperative item. >> so we must vote on the
8:11 am
finding are you prepared. >> yes. i am madam president colleagues that is as i mentioned a resolution i want to thank any co-sponsor supervisor peskin and congratulate christen for nearly 40 years of reporting to san francisco crime he's, of course, moving on and a way to say thank you and wish him well, so i ask for your support and first off to - >> this is purely commend i didn't action and provided by the brown act to it is came to the board of supervisors after the adjacent was posted if you want to move those finding. >> so moved. >> is there a second
8:12 am
seconded by supervisor farrell colleagues without objection, without objection those findings are approved supervisor campos. >> i want to say that i'm happy to support this motion all over the place that even though i'm happy to support this resolution of accommodation i think outside the box is the first time i've supported such a resolution even though i believe that the underlying analysis that the person has engaged this is has been completely wrong and misguided but this is in the spirit of agriculture to disagree maybe retirement allows the city to reconsider his decision and get to the relevant outcome on all the issues he's written about but notwithstanding it would be nice to have a intelligent and respectful conversation with the
8:13 am
gentleman a wish him good luck. >> supervisor avalos auto i'm sorry, i can't vote for this i'm not sure we can pass it without my vote but do building he is a sound journalist and many conversations i had with chuck he vote the opposite of what i was saying and quoted me by putting it in brackets complete opposite of what i was assessing and not itch honor and not be supporting this. >> okay thank you supervisor avalos supervisor farrell. >> classification from our city attorney. >> mr. gibner. >> yes. the impestered john gibner, deputy city attorney. the imperative item requires an unanimous vote. >> supervisor farrell
8:14 am
with the sponsors agreement first of all, i'd like to be added at a co-sponsor and make a motion to continue for one week. >> it is an imperative item so just for clarity sake i'm not sure can we continue this for a week or calendar it angela. >> i believe madam clerk. >> thank you madam president and building that it is an imperative item you voted on the sunshine and the brown act findings given that you can continue this for one week. >> it does question the imperative nature but leave this to the will of the board and would you suggest that we tail introduce it as an item to be calendar at the next meeting rather than continue this item. >> from the item is voted down
8:15 am
the sponsor will have that as an option to do. >> supervisor farrell. >> i appreciate to vote against this i want to see this voted on and put out - i'll ask the sponsor what he prefers to do. >> i will add you as a co-sponsor and before i turning it over to you supervisor. >> supervisor kim. >> i want this introduced as a regular item without committee. >> thank you, supervisor wiener did you have a comment. >> i'll support continuing the motion on the advice of supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i'd like to make a comment if we continue it and introduce it separately last week appreciate that people are free to vote on it and next week another week and my
8:16 am
understanding some will be retired no matter how to vote. >> supervisor farrell has made a motion to continue to december 6, 2016, is there a second. >> seconded by supervisor wiener. >> seeing no other names on the roster, colleagues, can we continue this to the meeting of the december 6, 2016, without objection? without objection the item be continued on the meeting of the december 6, 2016, all righty i have an imperative item i don't think this will be continued i think every members of the board finds the item commending our colleagues supervisor wiener and so i will move this is purely commentary and came to
8:17 am
the boards attendance once the agenda was printed a resolution honoring our outgoing supervisor supervisor wiener i'd like to move that seconded by supervisor farrell and colleagues without objection, without objection these finding have been passed and - let me just - >> okay today colleagues in my capacity as board president principled to introduce this resolution honoring our soon to be former colleague supervisor wiener now i know that some of you are happy about him leaving the board of supervisors and but we're also happy about the new venture he is taking on everyone

8:19 am

8:23 am
door to having a discussion about quality and making sure our growth is you know everyone and gives us more votes as we see the city grow i don't think we've done as much as we could usual our work is remarkable and working tarts the distribution of weight i can't believe it i have out lasted you on the board of supervisors this is kind of fun. >> one thing i've respected about you your work ethic is beyond imaginable humanly possible and i don't know if it is the robot in you to work well but incredible things on the board with the first campaigning with the supervisor district 8 every time i licensed to the

8:37 am
but having done this job for of years i completely understand he was being honest and authentic just amazing this job is hard we know that everyday your someone is mad at you a personal kind of job because we're responsible in making decisions on things that impact people's day to day lives so it can be challenging but so awarding and you all know and the work in the districts whether the work to widen the castro street sidewalks or renovate the canyon like 9 improvement in our district we'll all look at the
8:38 am
improvements for the the rest of our lives long after we're in office and played a role in making that happen or the person that is about to be evicted or losing their health care or who's brother is living on the street the roll we're enabled to make a phone call and address the conversation we take for granted whether or not it is impacting one person or one hundred thousand people and nothing more rewarding and the other amazing of being on the board of supervisors i'm about to have some cold water powder over me going to sacramento and - we take for granted how to progressive this city is and we estimate splooig and digging the
8:39 am
critical world we're a moderate and the most moderate members of the board will be a lefty in congress or in the california state allergic we proposed an expansion of paid parental leave that anywhere else we passed that anonymously at the board of supervisors the work we've been able to do around sugary drink beverages and it is not that controversial again, we take for granted how amazing to make progressive change inside that building in this city and we set an example for the world and i know we've all participated in that in some way
8:40 am
we do something here that reverberates around the country and word and not realizing what is happening until your left and look back and say oh, my god i did that and never forgot what a powerful position ♪ role not only in the official power but in the ability to set an example for the world so i'm really excited about taking this next step and representing our city and region in the state senate and we have we've got a lot more work to do and we everything we have a tidal wave it hit us to celebrate an election night given what happened but a huge fight on our hands not only in san francisco but california i agree supervisor cowen we have a absolutely double down on being
8:41 am
a progressive change whether fighting for the immigrant communities fighting for health care, as the republican try to tear it down in washington and making sure we reforming or supporting progressive transportation affordable housing more than ever it matters to san francisco and for california to continue on that path all over the place so i looked forward to partnering with you all of you to make that happen because again, we as someone said we build our own wall to defend ourselves and push back against donald trump and anyone can do that anyone in the state can do that i want to thank you all of you colleagues again as we agree we disagree but i've beenably to work with every single member of
8:42 am
