i really don't know what to do. you both are very qualified. i know that in looking at the diverse city issue, i would say that i would like to keep it as diverse as possible. that shouldn't be the only factor, but it is a factor for me. if i had somebody that was a male that was as equally qualified, i would consider that. i don't think there is a male on there, is there? jerry. one male. i know how that feels.
11:21 pm

11:22 pm
a program i understand from your public testimony now more than ever is near and dear to your heart, teen pregnancy training for those involved in the field of child care and potentially running a child care center. you are the embodiment of that. i think, autumn, you are the embodiment of the story you told. it is true what supervisor yee said. at the end of the day it is this particular commission. we have such well qualified, committed, hardworking, passionate people for children which is deer to my heart -- dear to my heart. i know supervisor yee has dedicated his career to helping children and families, particularly children that can't speak for themselves, between
11:23 pm
the ages of 0 to 5, he has been a strong advocate for that. i defer to him in this instance. i appreciate everything that all of you have said about your experience. we have a wonderful opportunity and i think there will be another opportunity. ms. autumn how long have you served on the advisory committee. >> you have been on there three years. it is almost like it is so equal. it is a very tough decision. from the perspective of working with the program that is vul aniable and -- vulnerable and knew i would lean towards ms. ketos as well. >> i want to say that the implementation of this prop c
11:24 pm
regardless of whether you or not i am hoping that ms. he autumn t you will continue to have that input in there. it is important what you represent also. i have never found that i had to have a title to bait in making something -- to participate in making something happen for young kids. i hope you will be able to continue your work in helping us improve the early education system in san francisco. >> supervisor stephanie. >> thank you. this is the worst part of rules commit city with two -- committee would two qualified candidates. to echo the comments in terms of respecting the body of work that
11:25 pm
supervisor yee has done all of these years and not knowing either of you personally, i lean towards deferring to him, of course. i do you want to say i was moved by ms. autumn's story, and if i were a child i would want you to be my teacher. i want to find away for you to continue the serve in some capacity in the city. you have so much to offer. i would love to follow up with you and learn from your experience. at that point i would defer to supervisor yee's motion on this. >> i think you made your motion. i think we can do that without objection. that included the residency waiver. you you thank you. you and thank you for your service. all of you.
11:26 pm
>> please call item 10. >> ordinance anding the administrative code to prioritize the pro questioning of 1 -- possessing of 100% of affordable housing projects, require to provide quarterly status reports. >> i think we have amy. are we going to start with the mayor office of housing or the supervisor's office? do you want to start first? great, please come forward. >> if you can keep it brief as much as you can.
11:27 pm
>> keep it brief. >> good afternoon, supervisor ronen had to head off to another meeting. this meeting ran longer than we were expecting. >> the rules committee will be wrong. i want to inform the members of the board. >> i am here to speak on her behalf of the legislation she introduced to accelerate affordable housing development, and in april, supervisor roy nan held the hearing on the pipeline despite the projects in predevelopment we weren't seeing great ground. we heard from city staff and nonprofit developers and projects were getting stalled with permits and approofal --
11:28 pm
approvals behind other you projects. they can improve our internal processes. the city allocates millions of dollar to create this housing, but when the projects are moving forward through the city system they are thrown in a mix. the two sets of executive directors we focused on. one was in 2013 there was an executive directive to give priority to affordable housing. in 2017 a subsequent directive to streamline all large residential projects affordable or not diluting the intent of the previous directive. the board has recently passed the former mayor's legislation to streamline. ocd is leading the construction
11:29 pm
cost containment discussions and implementation of the directive. this comments those by focusing on affordable housing specifically. what the legislation does is very straight forward and simple to direct five city departments to give absolute priorities to 100% affordable housing development, second, it requires each department to designate a person to shepard the projects through the process, to tract those and third to require the board receive a quarterly update. that allows the board to keep an eye on the projects and for the public to inform if hold ups. we are asking the commitment the city is making in dollars is matched with the city priority in possessing. i am going to cut the rest of my talking points because i know you want to get on.
11:30 pm
>> thank you. you can stay there. the quarterly report is it come anything the form of memo? a written report? >> we didn't get -- we did specify the things to be included through ocd. >> i would say for the record i think it is important not to take away too much staff time from doing what you want. a simple clear property makes the -- report makes the most sense rather that in depth analysis to take up staff time. everything else i fully support. >> are we -- do we need comment from the departments? >> several of the departments are here in order to answer any questions. we weren't asking any presentation. >> what departments are represented. >> ocd is a leadership role. >> who is here today?
11:31 pm
the mayor's office of housing, building inspection, planning, public works and fire and mod. there are five departments listed that are named in the legislation. those are the departments that such affordable housing and governed by the ad min code we left outperformed uc and mta. we are communicating with them to bring them in. >> what about pw? >> public works here, yes. >> there are amendments to be introduced and you have copies of that. >> go through it. >> sure. they are technical. globally. >> i think you have to talk about them goalie. >> we are de wheating department
11:32 pm

11:33 pm
permit. we replace that with any approval, permit. it explains what we are intending to do. >> you did it technically, not at the global level. >> the first is global that appears several places. >> any questions supervisor yee? >> no. >> supervisor stephanie? >> this is an important piece of legislation. it is something on all of our minds almost every district in the city has affordable housing in the pipeline. even if it didn't buy district it is something we are concerned about with the housing crisis. i think this is important. >> a motion? >> i will make a motion to accept the amendments. >> public comment? >> motion and then public comment. >> i will make the motion to
11:34 pm
accept the amendments as outlined in the presentation. >> we will hold off on the motion. any members of the public wish to comment, please come forward? >> i see him in the second row. in cowen. >> good afternoon, supervisors. you excellent. you have been here all day. representatives of mission economic development agency and the neighborhood development were here earlier and had to leave. they apologize. to emphasize how important this piece of legislation is to the work we do. working with the city departments how we make affordable housing real. we talk about it, make policy speeches. at the end of the day we have projects. getting them through the departments and making the systems standard is going to
11:35 pm
help a lot in all of those passing of the batons to get the projects to the finish line. we support this wholeheartedly. thank you very much. >> any other members of the public wish to comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> the motion as proposed by supervisor yee without objection? >> i made amendments. >> that was your motion for amendments without objection. we did that. >> make a motion to send this item to committee as amended with recommendation to the full board. my comments, i wish we had done this a long time ago. >> we can do that without objection. congratulations thank you all for sitting through and those that had to wait. this was a long day. i appreciate you coming.
11:36 pm
next item. >> item 11 amending the administrative code require disclosure in the healthcare trust fund board elections, set late filing fies and penalties and specify enforcement of disclosure requirements. >> comments by colleagues? we have sophia from president cohen's office. i know you wanted to say a few words. >> yes, thank you. thank you for hearing this item today. legislation before you today is an update to the administrative code to align disclosure
11:37 pm
requirements, candidates for retirement board and healthcare trust fund board with those of other elections. these three boards have combined 8 position to govern the variety of interests from healthcare to be contribution rates to fossil fuels and pension investments. upcoming elections in the next two years include two set service boards seats, one retiree healthcare fund election in 2019, retirement seat in 2020, health service board election in may of 2020. with so much money at stake it is essential they be subject to same disclosure requirements. this requires each interested third-party open a committee and file a form 10 intention statement, file a form 700, file
11:38 pm
semi-annual campaign funding reports and late contribution reports, submit campaign advertisements, include disclosures. this legislation introduces much needed transparency to the overlooked commissions and boards which have influence on the city operations. i have submitted the amendments highlighted on your copies specifying electronic filing, conduct code references any person seeking voter data should request that from the retirement board. these are technical and not sub stan stiff. i am happy to answer questions. i hope you will support this with a positive recommendation. thank you.
11:39 pm
>> i am going to be supporting this, just curious why we are doing it. was there ever a problem with candidates going for these positions, spending a lot of money? i am not sure why. >> my understanding is what president cohen said at the time of introduction there was an election in the retirement board. i believe it was in late 2016, but i am not certain, in which a specific third-party, independent expenditure you committee spent money to unseat one candidate and put in that. that is my understanding. you. >> we are reacting to something.
11:40 pm
okay. >> indeed. >> any public comment os this issue? come on up. >> thank you, members of the committee. i am patford with the ethics commission. they would be charge with administering the ordinance. we have been engaged to refine this and bring it into line with other city law that affects electoral campaigns. i will say this version especially too cleanup amendments are a big improvement over the first version there. are a few other areas that still have a ways to go, in particular we are trying to get one dish closure to fit in the existing systems that would have to be made on paper filings.
11:41 pm
they are cost ineffective and not very good in providing information to the public because they are not machine readable. the public cannot search the data. it is an uploaded pdf the public has to look at. in terms of modern disclosure technology, it is not the best. ideally we would like to refine this to fit it into an existing disclosure. that would mean refining the campaign advertise meant to only apply to mass mailings. 200 or more similar pieces of mail. if that were refined in that way we would piggyback it to the existing mass mailing disclosure that apply to all candidates. that would make sight there was very minimal cost burden. that would cost $60,000 to create the electronic version of the campaign addvertisement or
11:42 pm
paper filing which wouldn't create up front cost it would be staff burden and not as effective. i think we are on board with the spirit and general form and we support it. >> if this were an amendments to be made, where would it be made? you. >> what section or whatever? >> let me look real quick. >> i would like to have a reaction you you you t to the possibility. i saw you shaking your head. can you explain it? >> respectfully, what we have understand i is that, and if i m not clear i would love to be corrected. my understanding if it were a
11:43 pm
request ever of the rechoiring f electronic filings. we believe they are important and not mandating everything in paper. the idea we would limit the disclosure to mass mailings and exclude things like phone calls, items like digital ads on facebook because the department of ethics has not yet set up the financial disclosure system for electronic filings seems to me and to the president to be kind of a slow reaction. i think we should incest in making you are -- should inch vest that we require them and that brings transparency to the system. the time lapse between what we
11:44 pm
have now and should have in the future should not reflect what we do or do not mandate on disclosure. is that clear? my understanding what the specific amendments is that we identify campaign advertise men's for mass mailing. we feel strongly it should be broader. if there is a way to meet the needs for electronic versus paper filing without limiting to mass mailing, we are open. we do not want to reduce the disclosure to mass mailings. >> if i am following you, you this legislation would actually lead a discussion, a bigger
11:45 pm
discussion. if right now for instance if i am running and i don't have to do the facebook or whatever you are talking about, we have to change it to make everybody do that then, right? right now you are suggesting it is filed for these positions? >> that is my understanding. i would defer to the city attorney and mr. ford. >> did you understand my question? >> you there is a number of different disclosures any candidate in san francisco has to file with the ethics commission. campaign statements and copies of the advertisement. they are cent sent out and fileh the ethics commission in the
11:46 pm
existing law. if i understand what mr. ford referred to some are electronic and some are paper. this looks at the same advertise men's. you at the current time they can't be electronically filed. i hope to get these move anything that direction, but it sounds like it is a matter of time and resources question and implementation question. >> city attorney, are there other you candidates that are required to disclose or file advertisements that are not mass mailings, to your knowledge? >> other third-parties are required to file things other than mass mailings including what we refer to as election
11:47 pm
communications, network communications and other third-party communications. what you mentioned robocall scripts, electronic ads, internet ads are filed with the ethics commission. >> her question was specifically do other candidates? specifically called out for retirement board, retiree healthcare trust fund board? >> we are not the first people to require this. >> when i run for office i have a list of requirements. what they are trying to do is have the same list. are they going above and beyond what i i have to as a member of the boad of supervisors. if i go on social media, do a radio ad, don't i have to file
11:48 pm
with the ethics commission to have disclosures? >> i don't think it is the intents of the legislation to go above and beyond. >> i don't think she said that. they want the proposal for parity correct? >> correct. >> when you run for seat on the board of supervisors. the only time to file a copy of advertisement is mass mailing. you have to disclose expenditure us on campaign statements. >> it is when the actual copy. we give you a copy of the mailing. >> you have to do that within five days. you within five days of themas failing you have to filed itemized disclosure and give us a copy. >> facebook or radio ad we don't have to disclose?
11:49 pm
>> no and this would go further. anytime they spend money on any campaign tiesment they have to file a copy within five days. >> that was not the intents what they were trying to do. neighbor it is -- maybe it is an interpretation? i heard it sounds like this is requiring these three bodies to do more than what we would have to as member of the board of supervisor when we run for office, is that true? >> in thatrup. there are other -- in that respect. it is give and take. there are matters where they have to do less. >> we are talking about disclosures based on advertising, correct? based on electronic. >> whether or not you submit copies of the specific ad. >> what i her the ethics saying
11:50 pm
mass mailing, radio or social media we don't have to. >> right. i don't disagree with that. >> is that what you are trying to do? you want parity? where is that in this? >> 16.553-2 c on page 8 of the revised version. >> campaign advertisements at the bottom. >> what line? >> line you -- absence of a definition online 21. >> you want there to be campaign advertise men's mass mailings? >> right. specifically this applies to mass mailings or defining campaign advertise meant to restrict it to that an lauren. >> would you be -- alone.
11:51 pm
>> would you be opposed to that amendment? >> i would not oppose if the ethics commission can -- the president believes as matter of policy this should be included. for this specific legislation. >> that is why i asked the question. i heard what you were trying to say. deputy city attorney, can we make that amendment? it looks like a clarifying amendment? >> it would not be substantive. at the direction of the committee i can shoot out language on that. >> we are open to that. >> that works. >> just for the record, i think we are the ethics commission saying add clarity around what would actually fall under the definition of campaign advertisement. >> my suggestion on pages and line number in the original version in the meeting packet
11:52 pm
would be page 8 line 21. substituting mass mailings for campaign advertisements. you. >> that is now on 22. candidates that pay for campaign advertisements. >> in subsection c 1. mass mailings. >> instead of campaign adverti advertisement say mass mailings. >> right. >> where is the other place? >> i would suggest the second paragraph of the same subsection c 1 at th the top of page 9. starting if advertisement is phone call. >> mass mailing. >> it would be inapplicable to mass mailing. >> you that would be it. >> we can forward to the full board? >> are you okay with that?
11:53 pm
>> that is perfect. >> anything else? any other question. >> that is all. thank you for your consideration. >> supervisor stephanie you have a lot to say about this? i am teasing you. i think a motion to accept the amendments as proposed regarding the word campaign advertisement as proposed by the deputy city attorney. get a motion to send to the full board with positive recommendation. so moved without objection. that item is ordered. any other matters before us today? >> that concludes our business for today. >> great. we are adjourne
