many questions and drizzling the ceo john stumble on accountability or in particular case lack of affordability when i think about the banking and commerce of the united states it is pretty very powerful group of men that really, truly rule the banking and finance world and i think this is a small but great opportunity we have to step and break up this anyone open for the best practices practices that have been frankly on the tobaccos of working-class men and women for generations this is an opportunity for this city to call in question the ceo pay

11:10 pm
hundred employees got fired and the dhufs got a slap on the waste this is unacceptable and great to come out and accept responsibility to we expect fare more of the constitution institutions so i'm glad they understand there are penalty for defrauding our residents here and just to concur with the words that supervisor cowen and what i've talked about earlier about our shrinking marching and growing poor and wealthy household until san francisco we really, really need to take on this issue and looking at the ceo to average worker pay growing by one thousand percent
11:11 pm
over the last thirty years to the point a ceo makes three hundred and 7 three hundred more than their average working in the 50s and 60s far more narrow that is important that question take an important position on wells fargo but also on any other companies that are really just underpaying their workers and so thank you to supervisor avalos for your work on the measure and happy to be a co-sponsor. >> seeing no other names on the roster, colleagues, can we take that same house, same call? without objection the resolution is adopted as amended unanimously madam clerk call items 14 and 19 through 27 together. >> a resolution to ask the fire department to accept and extend a documents to purchase

11:22 pm
>> (speaking spanish.) >> in bernal heights and working on building whether to have a memorial to honor this is your son who lost his life in 2014 on bernal heights park i knew alex worked with him an advocate back in 2000 and 2009 one he was a youth contaminate a youth and bernal heights center and the executive order would come with alex as advocates where i was working tatd and knowing knew alex be dedicated young man that of those doing a lot of community work that was instilled by his parents and schools in the bernal area
11:23 pm
and alex dedicatedism to education and working on getting his certifying at the city college to became a probation officer and dedicated to helping to give a lot of young people a chance to have greater opportunities and away from the streets and giving back to the experience he had growing up other than that day he was shot he was you know under recent a court case about that incident and the officers involved found to be x-rated by the courts but the community felt that alex was
11:24 pm
gunned down with the offer use of force and that incident and the pain reverberate through bernal heights and the excelsior and places where alex lived and the community was around him because of pa pain a huge need to find some sense of healing at that spot there is roadway currently a shine this is there an alter and his parents frequent to you talked with alex and get close to him and get a sense of what transpired ♪ area where their son lived and they continue to live i canned think of anything that will mark what san francisco has been introduce we've seen a number of
11:25 pm
young men and women that have been gunned down by people who work for the san francisco police department i regardless of how you feel it was justified the shootings were justified or not but were going to mark an experience people have in san francisco that people have had in different places that's what this memorial is about, about this time we have other dreams that torn apart our communities and our families i think if we acknowledge that those incidents have happened it brings us closure to the finding we need to have a city that really lives up to its values so i've been honored to work on this ordinance and this ordinance essentially would you
11:26 pm
know require a or director rec and park to install a memorial the memorial has not been designed there is that language has been talked about where the community is going through a process to understand the right design and the language to be there and this will go have not arts commission that goes to the process how to approve public art the communities is also discussed raising money themselves for the mural for the memorial and i do think that that could be you know some of the city could do in the future the intent has been the community will come together to you know raise in part the funds to me that is also a way that the community can strengthen and
11:27 pm
grow and look after each other that is the essence of community safety is about and the community that all about in memorial how we can bring a community together and healing to a site there guess tremendous tragedy and how we can bring a sense of understanding how the many losses we've experience in recent years when patrol officers use of force with less discretion than they should as we're seeing we're trying to change policies around the use of force and thank you to the colleagues and thank you to jeramy pollack his work in me office and the communities of folks that came together across many of the recent shootings

11:29 pm
>> (speaking spanish.) >> you know it is a bittersweet day supervisor avalos and supervisor mar that is our last meeting at the board of supervisors and one of the issues that i think you know leaves me with a great deal of of thinking with a heavy heart the issue where we are today police reform many things unresolved we have a number of cases and alex being one of them that on so many levels haven't given a satisfactory conclusion for the families of the victims within the things i've learned through the process of being here and alm that something did happen is how even though you
11:30 pm
can't bring back someone that was fell as alex did at the hands of our police this is something to be said for that acknowledging and remembering i think that happened with mario woods i think that the families basically saying they want that as well i think in the context of everything else we've failed to do so far in many respect the least we can do and westbound can't bring alex back and we subtle have to
11:31 pm
>> that's the place where this incident happened so i think we have an opportunity and quite frankly to have an opportunity to turn something tragic and
11:32 pm
something positive. this does and as resident, i'm proud this will be placed and done in a way the community can provide their $0.02 and again to the parents of nieto, i can't bring your son back. >> we're thinking with you and we want to hear together. >> [spanish] >> thank you. >> thank you supervisor campos.
11:33 pm
>> supervisor farrell. speaker: i want to acknowledge supervisor avalos -- he has spoken about this. so if i say i'm sorry for the loss for our community in particularly for the parents, you know, and any tragedy like this is horrific, but i cannot support this ordinance today. most importantly because in my mind, what this message -- >> audience booing] speaker: this is an emotional topic, but i would ask you respect our process and allow us to continue. they will be a vote on this matter and there are some members who will have a different type of opinion. i ask that you allow members of the board to express their opinion as you know. there's applause and booing in support of opposition is prohibited in the chamber. please allow us an opportunity to have a discussion and get through this. thank you for your
11:34 pm
patience. >> thank you president breed and most importantly for me because of what it's sending to the police department who put their lives on the line for us everyday in san francisco. our board is more concerned about honoring those that have fallen and been killed by police officers for reasons, but we do not recognize -- >> excuse me a second. excuse me. if the out burst continue to persists, unfortunately i will have to recess the meeting. so i'm asking members of the public, again, out of respect for the family who is here today, can you please allow us to continue to move forward with this. and if you want to support words that are being said, just waive your hands, if you oppose anything, please just use the thumb's down and we will see you. thank you. supervisor farrell.
11:35 pm
>> thank you supervisor breed. we don't recognize the police officer killed or injured in the line of duty protecting us as residents. many fallen officers of the past years come to mind. officer downs was shot in the head. nothing was talked about. our san francisco residents and people that risk their lives everyday to protect the residents of san francisco, and in the mist of our heat debates which i appreciate and is fair game, but over the past year, somehow i think we have lost sight of that. we have forgotten the debt we owe to the men and women and someone needs to speak for them. and i am not talking about the poa or any other group involved in this debate. but for me, among other things, it's the people i grew up in san francisco who have been apart of our police, fire and sheriff's department for years. those that i see on the weekends are at kid's soccer game and have been apart of san francisco for generations and those men and
11:36 pm
women in our public safety department that moved to san francisco because they believed in public service and they believed in the clear -- a career in public safety and have dedicated their careers to protect us. my vote is for them. >> supervisor cohen. speaker: what's scary and it's unfortunate is we cannot honor a loss of life period. a loss of life is a loss period whether it's law enforcement or whether it's a community person. and i think it's incredibly disingenuous and alarming that you can't support something -- you can't be one way without being fearful of being called racist or misinterpreting your actions that you're on one side. the reality is if law enforcement or if anyone wants to be recognized, all they have to do is ask the same way the community has made an ask. this is the first time. one thing that has made me uncomfortable about this ask
11:37 pm
was that how do we honor and up lift alex nieto without putting a shadow on other members who have -- we've lost along the way because alex isn't the only one. alex wasn't the last one. but it was the community that organized and have made this ask. it's a humble ask. it's not too much to ask for. and i would be happy to sponsor something for the poa. happy to sponsor something for the firefighters. this is not an us or them. it doesn't have to be that simple. it doesn't have to be gray or black or white and cut and straight dry. this is an opportunity for us to come together. this should be healing. this should be bringing peace. instead this kind of conversation is tearing us apart. we need a national day of remembrance, to remember everybody that has died one way or the other. for every officer shot in head or killed,
11:38 pm
their life matters. it's terrible. it's violence. that's what we need to be standing up and remembering. how violence touches everyone. i'm going to be supporting this. this memorial and i'm going to be supporting of future memorials should anyone of my colleagues want to bring for law enforcement because every -- every -- every -- thank you, every life does matter and i don't say that to my gate the black or brown community and the struggle because that's very real. that is very real, but we can honor alex. alex represents many men and women that have died. it's not just about alex nieto and to be fair, law enforcement has
11:39 pm
their private ceremony and memorials that they conduct for those officers they have lost in the line of duty. the baby station has an annual one where they get together for a soul that was lost several years ago in the line of duty. so come on. this is -- this is tearing us apart and it needs to be building us together. this pain that binds us. this is hurt that binds us. this is love. that's all i got to say. >> thank you supervisor cohen. supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president and colleagues. first of all, when a police officer is shot or killed, we as members of the board of supervisors, i think each and every one of us go
11:40 pm
that that funeral. when officer kevin downs was shot, i drove out there at 11:00 at night to san francisco general hospital and said hi to his father. these are not mutually exclusive things. i think when we get in this die ma'am is -- dynamic we can't honor a citizen of san francisco who was tragically killed in a hale of bullets, that plays in to this whole mentality that is at the root of the problem. we need to have a society where we can honor the working men and women of the police department and the dangers they face and we can honor members of our community tragically killed. these are not exclusive. i think they benefit one another. i think when the police officer -- police officer's association knows that we take
11:41 pm
the loss of life of one of our citizens as seriously as we take the loss of life of one of our officers, that sends a powerful message. so i don't think we should go back to the old day dynamics of we can't honor this individual because it's somehow disrespects the police. that's fundamentally not true. >> thank you supervisor peskin. speaker: supervisor campos. >> i respect everyone's views, and i think what's painful about what i just heard is that the argument about how supporting or remembering someone who died in an incident involving the police is disrespectful to the police officers and the department -- and an argument that was made for the day of mario woods. we heard that precisely from the
11:42 pm
poa. and at that point, we responded by saying we respectful disagree. we're ready if there's a need or desire to recognize of contributions of any police officer to do that. we said to the poa, our doors are open. tell us what it is we're not doing. and we specifically rejected that false choice in having done that and actually establish a president for recognizing the memory of someone who fell out of an incident, what does it say to the family that we're willing to do that with 1 person, but not another. if that argument is the argument that we were going to follow, we should have followed it before, but i think
11:43 pm
that -- i mean it's painful actually. does it matter that this person, you know, comes from where they come from? i mean, i mean, it's actually very painful. and i think it's very unfortunate and i think that to the poa, i would say you know, as i've said since i've been on the -- when i was on the police commission, you don't serve your members well when you try to make that false choice. it is not mutually exclusive. we can honor the men and women of the police department and still recognize the memory. thank you. >> thank you, supervisor campos. no names on the roster, madam clerk, can you please call the roll. >> item 31, supervisor tang. speaker: aye. >> tang aye. . >> yee aye. speaker: avalos. >> aye. >> supervisor breed. >> aye. >> campos. >> aye. >> supervisor cohen. >> aye. >> supervisor farrell.
11:44 pm
>> no. speaker: supervisor kim. speaker: aye. >> supervisor mar. >> aye. >> supervisor peskin. >> aye. >> there are nine aye and one no with farrell -- >> this item passes on the first reading. [ cheering ] >> thank you everyone. >> thank you everyone so much for being here and congratulations. we're going to
11:45 pm
>> all right. thank you everyone. we are back. madam clerk. let's go to -- >> where ever we left off. speaker: committee reports. >> let me skip to the committee reports. >> item 50 and 51 were considered by the oversight committee at a special meeting on thursday, december 8th. and were recommended as committee reports. item 50 is an ordinance to amend the governmental conduct code to require members of the city board and commissions to file the payment reports regarding the solicitation of charitable contributions. >> okay. supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president. colleagues, i'll be brief. i want to thank supervisor's yee and breed for their support of this item in committee which i introduced in may of this year which would impose certain limited reporting requirements on our city commissioners and board members, requirements
11:46 pm
which apply to all of us elected officials via state regulation. our city as we know has a unique system of commissions and boards which are largely comprised of volunteers from various fields and have immense power to give fines or improve licenses or land use entitles. today is a piece of legislation that shed light on how the public officials wheel their influences from parties that appear before them or from agents. i would like to make a couple of notes. first this proposal was narrow than the reporting requirement that's apply to us, having heard from our city's commissioner and board members, many of who hold day jobs at nonprofits, it's critical we create a system that's not burden some or prevent these board members from serving. second with respect to our standing concerns about the scope of this requirement, i've
11:47 pm
communicated with our elt -- ethics department and we look forward to working with them and working independently to develop rule and regulations to achieve -- while making sure it remains tailored to shine light. i want to thank the board of secretaries who have worked with my staff to help make this legislation better and i would also like to thank my staff, lee hepner for his work on it. just a few relevant facts. the threshold reporting amount is $1,000. as i have said, it's only for those be hefted payments for people that are actually practicing or appearing in front of that commission much narrower than what we have. and received unanimous support from the ethics commission. it won't be effective until january 1st of 2017. they'll
11:48 pm
establish a form for filing and the ethics commission will give rules and regulations around implementation and with that, i hope to get your support. >> thank you, supervisor peskin. colleagues, seeing no other names on the roster. madam clerk, can you please call the roll. >> item 50, supervisor tang. >> aye. >> supervisor yee. >> aye. >> supervisor avalos. >> aye. >> supervisor breed. >> aye. >> supervisor campos. >> aye. >> supervisor cohen. speaker: aye. >> supervisor farrell. >> aye. >> supervisor kim. >> aye. >> supervisor mar. >> aye. >> supervisor peskin >> aye. >> there are ten ayes. >> the ordinance passes on the first read. >> item 51. >> it has the same title. it's to direct the clerk of the board to issue an subpoena

packaged free as well. this will move us toward our zero waste goals. by expanding the size of the bottles and packaged water that applies to this ordinance, strengthening the enforcement in the city reduce the use of plastic water bottles and also ensure our department of the environment is the overseer or the guardian. this extends our bottle free access to have increasing -- to our public water system with drink tap station and other efforts from our rec and park departments, school district and throughout the city. this ordinance also expands to include a 5-gallon size plastic water container. moving from 28 ounces all the way up to 5-gallon and it

supports promoting of public water, not privatization of water through the over use of single use plastic water bottle and other packaged water. in 2014, we passed a historic, maybe the first in the nation law with now assembly men david chu, but the coalition remains to stay active to reduce plastic pollution and to increase water access with drink tap stations throughout the city. we would have expanded to 100 new drinking stations by 2015 and with allocations of roughly 600,000 to the puc and the school district over the next 2 years 2 years expanding it more. it has had an impact on our environment and marine pollution in our oceans. this amends our environment code to modify restrictions on the sale

section 2406d, given that department's responsible may seek from the department of the environment a waiver and then it strikes out a number of words in that language. so it really ensures the department of the environment is the overseer of this policy. colleagues thank you to supervisor farrell and cohen for cosponsoring and i urge you to support this as amended. speaker: supervisor mar has made a motion to amend, seconded by supervisor farrell. can we take the amendments -- oh you want -- supervisor yee. >> supervisor mar and president, the amendments, they do include the 5-gallon or less? was that an amendment made before? >> supervisor mar. >> thank you, president breed. my first amendment is including the 5 gallons or less.
