4:01 pm
transcended with his wife by his side. he was a devoted husband of 48 years, daughter tracey, grandfather, friend, artist, and neighbor. eugene e. white was born in 1933 in rural arkansas -- or arkansas. the son of a share cropper, he studied agriculture and often worked in the cotton fields with his father. though he received no formal training, eugene showed an incredible aptude for painting at an early age. he chased his creative pursuits all the way to detroit where he completed design sketches for cadillac. in 1958, he continued west, settling in san francisco and starting his own business. he loved the independence of freedom of being his own boss, so he opened the first black
4:02 pm
owned art gallery in the city. white's first public art show was in golden gate park, haul of flowers, in 1964. mr. white's artwork and writings would carrie him across the united states and the world. he displayed his work in historic festivals in chicago, nigeria, and france. in 1983, he became the first black artist to display his work at the monterey jazz festival. mr. white's work is a testament to his devotion to black art, culture, and life. his large canvass documented everyday people in san francisco where he lived and worked for over 60 years. his paintings tell the struggles of black struggle and joy. he painted every aspect of the human condition, from children at play to adults at work and elderly at rest, but mostly
4:03 pm
exclusively painting black folk. his artwork was a revolutionary act in itself in the black revolutionary eras. from 1979 to 2012, white also published a ground breaking magazine, distributed both locally and nationally, and was intended to spread the word of after can american artists, writers, and thinkers. white also published an auto biography in 2004. mr. white was a beloved leader in the western addition and fillmore community. he regularly displayed his work at the buchanan mall. two of his murals have graced the community center's walls, one entitled juneteenth, is
4:04 pm
still on view today. today, white's paintings and prints on permanent display at the gallery and at oakland museum of california. in recognition of many contributions to the african american community. mr. white leaves behind a beautiful legacy. he will be remembered as a champion of black soul, art, beauty, and truth for generations to come. today, i'm introducing a resolution urging the u.s. department of health and human ss services to rescind newly erected barriers for women, teens and men seeking time sensitive and essential health care. their new revised regulations
4:05 pm
will take away funding for family planning clinics where abortion is one of the methods of family planning offered to patients, create a gag rule bars federally funded family planning clinics from referring women for abortions. this is a gag rule which compromises medical ethics and potentially endangers the lives of patients. the gag rule is unethical, according to the american medical association. nearly 20,000 low-income san franciscans receive family planning and related health services at title 10 funded clinics. over half are uninsured, and more than 77% earn below 150% of the federal poverty level. now regulations are likely to force clinics to have to choose between providing comprehensive health care and getting public funding.
4:06 pm
clinics in san francisco, planned patient hood in district nine, asian pacific islander wellness center in district six, the women's community clinics in district five and nine, and with my experience and involvement in the women's community clinic in d-5, i know not only they provide women with -- for reproductive services, they provide general women's health care. so doctors in the women's clinics have told me stories about some women coming in for reproductive services and through a physical exam have found more serious health issues. the women's clinic has the philosophy that if -- if the woman of the household is unhealthy, the withhold family suffers. and for me, that -- that's really personal because i think a lot of you know that -- and some of you know that my mom
4:07 pm
passed away when i was 14, but probably not how and why. one day, she woke up with a stomachache, and it -- she was -- it -- she had it for a few days, and she didn't go to the doctor. she didn't go to the doctor because we didn't have health insurance and we didn't have money to go to the doctor. it got worse, she was in bed doubled over. people came and gave her what they could to help. they gave her painkillers, and as it was getting worse, days went on, and when they realized, she started vomiting up her bile, and they put her in a car and drove hours to an emergency room that would take her. and on the way to the hospital, she was saying don't take me. i don't have the money. she went into the hospital, and they released she had diabetes. it had been undiagnosed for
4:08 pm
years, had been -- had it so long that -- undiagnosed that her organs had been shutting down, and what had happened as she was laying in bed in pain, her colon burst, and so she was in the hospital for about a month, and then, she got gangrene in her abdomen, and that was probably -- she lasted another two weeks. and at that time, when my mother passed away at 40 years old, that changed my life forever and made me -- i made decisions good and bad because of the issues and effects of losing my mother in such a traumatic way. so my mother passed away -- when she passed away at 40, i feel that if my advocacy today
4:09 pm
can save one friend, one sister, one daughter, one mother, it's been worth reliving my painful experience as a child. yesterday, california and 20 other states sued the federal government, seeking an injunction. i would like to thank all my colleagues here today for signing onto this resolution. the rest i submission. >> clerk: thank you, supervisor brown. tender comments to beloved individuals will always be remembered. supervisor fewer? >> supervisor fewer: thank you very much, madam clerk. colleagues, today i'm introducing a hearing on the practice of classifying employees as exempt, excluding a number of city workers from the civil service system. i am concerned about the increasing use and misuse of civil service exclusions among city departments and the impact this has on both our civil service system as well as on
4:10 pm
the exempt and permanent civil service city workers. employees in exempt positions do not have the same protections as other stye workers. exempt employees are at will, meaning they can be terminated at any time for any reason or no reason. this may increase the potential for gender and race discrimination in city government creating environments where employees are fearful to speak out. i am worried that the misuse of exempt employees under mines the integrity of the civil service system. managers can hire people into exempt positions with little oversight and accountability. exempt positions with excluded from the order of layoffs in civil service. job announcements for exempt positions contain language speaking to the limited nature of the employment which can limit the number of applicants.
4:11 pm
civil service jobs in san francisco provide a real pathway for economic stability for thousands of people and their families, and it is critical we protect the integrity of the system. it has been and should continue to be a pathway to the middle class. both my mother and father were civil service employees and that was because the system was blind to race, allowing a truly equal opportunity for them. this hearing should include a report on the numbers of permanent exempt and temporary exempt positions by city departments in comparison to the last five years as well as classifications of these positions and the race and gender demographics of exempt employees. thank you. the rest i submit. >> clerk: thank you, supervisor fewer. supervisor haney? >> supervisor haney: thank you, madam clerk. i have a resolution and a call for hearing.
4:12 pm
first is i'm calling for a hearing on the central market tax exclusion, also known as the twitter tax break. in the wake of the 2008 recession, san francisco passed a central market tax inclusion in 2011 in an attempt to ensure continued job growth in the tech sector and as an essential piece of a broader strategy to revital eyes midmarket. the tax break allowed a temporary tax break on the city's 1.5% payroll tax at the time for companies moving into buildings in midmarket. the hope was this would lead to well paying jobs for residents and spur a vacahave a -- spur vacant storefronts in the neighborhood. the midmarket tax break or twitter tax break is nearing its sunset which will occur on
4:13 pm
may 20 20r, 2019. i personally don't know if the tax break has met all of its goals, and you have a lot of question bz that. but one thing i will say is i have yet to anyone suggest we should renew it, and i haven't even heard for it to be renewed from the company itself. and based on what i know, i'm not advocating for it to be renewed. what i do know is today in san francisco, according to h.u.d., a family of four making $117,000 is considered low-income, and that the area's median income for a single adult is over $100,000. for comparison, in 2012, the median income in san francisco was just $73,000. 20% of san franciscans currently make more than $200,000 a year, and these facts make us among the wealthiest per cappita and the
4:14 pm
most expensive in the nation. we still have a neighborhood that was rife with vacant storefronts and empty lots. the area also continues to struggle with rampant open air drug use and drug dealing. anecdotally few residents have had access to the jobs with these companies. with that, with the sunsetting of this tax break, we want to have a public hearing on what happened, what we learned and what we will do next. did the city actually achieve its goal of economic revitalization, how many jobs were created, who got these jobs, how was the money these companies saved from the tax break used or redistrict courted? as an important part of the --
4:15 pm
redistributed? what were the benefits that were promised and what was delivered? was the central market citizens advisory committee being able to oversee these benefits? we know that the city gave up tens of millions of dollars of revenue in response to this tax break, and what did we lose and gain from the job creation investment? and finally, what is our strategy for midmarket post tax break? cutting taxes for tech companies was not aville certify bullet, to -- was not a silver bullet, to say the least. how do we plan for this crucial and growing part of our city that continues to have needs for equitiable development. in central soma, we are about to embark in a massive increase in jobs, particularly in the
4:16 pm
tech sector. with that, i'm calling for a hearing to include the controller's office, the office of economic and workforce development, the city ad stror, and as many of the tax -- administrator, and as many of the tax break beneficiaries as we can get. additionally, i'm asking for the support of ab 392. this bill will incorporate policing best practices that authorizes police officers to use deadly force only when it is necessary to prevent imminent serious bodily injury or death and to require deescalation methods whenever possible. the most recent example of this miscarriage of justice is the
4:17 pm
case of stephen clark. the two officers involved in the fatal shooting were cleared by an independent review just days after prosecutes nounced that they -- prosecutors announced that they would not be filing charges against them. the rest i submit. >> clerk: thank you, supervisor haney. supervisor mandelman? >> supervisor mandelman: thank you, madam clerk. today, i'm druzing ordinance to amend the planning code in which makes arts districts, fill on tlopic principally permitted in market which runs from castro to church on market street and will make conforming changes to nct-3 zoning
4:18 pm
district. the legislation will not be a silver bullet for all of upper market's vacancy concerns. it won't stop landlords from charging extravagant rents or keeping storefronts empty, whether by rents or intent, although i do want to thank you, supervisor fewer for your legislation today and thank you, supervisor peskin for your work on vacancy tax, but this is an attempt to help small business succeed in an area where we desperately need them to succeed. i've heard from many current or aspiring small business owners w whose aspirations were nearly
4:19 pm
dashed by a number of regulatory hurdles. one such business on church and market was finally able to open up after a 16-month permitting process. too many others have given up during the process or decided never to try at all leaving storefronts unfilled and exacerbating our issues. while the situation has grown worse in recent years, it's not a new problem. new senator, then supervisor wiener worked on a castro project in 2013. and my office continued to work on this report with the b.l.a. that report was released earlier today and clearly shows what many business owners and residents in the neighborhood have long known, that business vacancies a problem in the neighborhood. according to the report,
4:20 pm
between 2015 and 2017, vacancies increased in 8.9 to 12.5%. in the time since the data was collected, the problem was worsened significantly. in upper market, it took an average of 332 days from submission for an applicant to secure a conditional use authorization. when combined with other permitting processes, the process can take years. for many applicants, that means 18 months to two years of paying rent on a storefront that hasn't even opened yet, which is ludicrous. i've worked with neighborhood
4:21 pm
stakeholders including the castro merchants association, the community benefits district, and duboce triangle merchant association to help fight this. this legislation envisions an upper market where new and delicious restaurants can serve local residents and drew visitors from around the city and around the world, and where local artists will fill gallerys with their paintings, photographs and ceramics. i want to thank liveable city for helping us with this, as well as planning, the city attorney's office, and tom tempranno in my office. the rest i submit. >> clerk: thank you,
4:22 pm
supervisor. supervisor mar? >> supervisor mar: thank you, colleagues. today i'm calling for a hearing to request sfmta to property on their progress for meeting their quarterly goals in meeting service reliability. last year, sfmta began setting 90 day benchmarks for increasing service delivery, improving on time performance and reducing collisions. i think it's in the interest of the public to hearing from the agency in meeting its performance goals. i've heard from constituents every single day about train and bus reliability and service
4:23 pm
disruptions. thank you, and the rest i submit. >> clerk: thank you, supervisor mar. supervisor peskin? >> supervisor peskin: other than this, i submit the rest. i just wanted to express my sadness at the passing of a ferocious neighborhood advocate, mary ann miller. a couple of weeks ago, she had a fall, and she was transferred to hospital and then to hospice. she leaves behind loved ones, several of whom are here today. she was known -- i had the pleasure of knowing her for over 20 years and listened to her comments, constructive, sometimes complains, and
4:24 pm
recommendations to policy makers and fellow neighborhood leaders. mary ann could be controversial at times, but she always stimulated very good debate and ultimately spurred action. she serves as the secretary for the coalition for san francisco neighbored, where she championed community planning and neighborhood voices in all sorts of municipal affairs. we worked closely last year in the fight of senate bills 827 and 828, and she understood the value of neighborhoods having their own voice and shaping their destiny. she served as a long time board member and was a former president of an organization that supervisor mar knows very
4:25 pm
well, speak, sunset park side education and action committee. she also served on the presidio and coalition for action for golden gate park. ask the community has lost one of its strongest voices. she joined the board in 1991, and in 2015 received the jack morrison lifetime achievement board. local environmental activist pinky kushner characterized mary ann as a fierce advocate.
4:26 pm
she was fierce in getting the young artists building to have copper on the side of the building that would oxidize and blend in with the surrounding neighborhood at the time. she joined our planning department which is what made her so smart in the late 1970's, but resigned when she decided she could do more as a citizen activist. she enjoyed the various san francisco arts and culture. she would want us to support those same local grassroots arts events, so i would like to adjourn today's board meeting on behalf of myself and supervisor mar in her memory, and i know that supervisor mar has some words to add, and the
4:27 pm
rest i will submit. >> clerk: thank you, supervisor peskin. supervisor mar? >> supervisor mar: thank you, supervisor peskin for taking this moment in memory of mary ann miller, and i'm honored in joining the call to adjourn the meeting in her memory. she was a tireless advocate for land use and preservation issues in the tenderloin. i just wants toic at thed to t to read a comment that i received. i was saddened to hear of mary ann's passing. how great that she will be remembered at the board of
4:28 pm
supervisors, one of her many arenas. she was knowledgeable and championed who was right and beautiful of san francisco. always ready to be a part of the discussion regarding developments, of course. in speak, we shared many successes and disappointments with our land use and preservation issues. her immense energy kept her involved in so many areas of art and culture. her intense sincerity was undeniable. i'm grateful to have known her. thank you. >> clerk: thank you, supervisor mar. >> president yee: thank you, colleagues. i think that concludes our roll call. madam clerk, let's go to our next item. >> clerk: at this time, the public may address the entire board of supervisors for up to two minutes on items in the subject matter jurisdiction of the board to include the january 29, 2019 board meeting minutes, item 58, the closed session regarding e goes with the labor unions representing city employees, whether or not
4:29 pm
to enter into closed session or on the possibility that the president will entertain a motion to continue this item to march 12, and items 59 through 64 on the adoption without committee reference pursuant to the board's rules, direct your remarks to the board as a whole, not to individual members. if you would like to display a document on the projector, please just remove the document when you'd like the screen to return to live coverage of the meeting. >> president yee: thank you, madam clerk. come on up to the podium and make your comments. >> richard hack. two things to rethink. automatic use of the term housing crisis, and the approval of another new building that was three dimensional but only exhibits two architectural elements. it's a completely smooth and giant rectangular mass.
4:30 pm
people have been streaming here from everywhere for 171 years, and we have always built new housing. we are now the second densest city in the country. 30 years ago, we were fourth. i've never found any of these housing crisis advocates been able to give me a number of the people at the gates streaming to get in. i was directed to a report by a city economyist who said if we bui built 2500 homes, our rent will fall by 25%. rent control extension is there for an order from 1979 to some indeterminate future right now.
4:31 pm
given its record breaking density, san francisco should be exempt from any new building quotas. i would gladly give to a public defense fund for that public. >> president yee: next. >> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is greg miller. i was a neighbor and friend of mary mary ann miller and her husband, jim. she was an intelligent, creative and generous person. she loved art, music, history, poetry, and architecture. she devoted much of her time and personal savings to community projects. she helped many friends, neighbors, and homeless people that she encountered in the park. she was one of those people that formed the connective tissue of our city. thank you for your time.
4:32 pm
>> president yee: thank you. next? >> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is sylvia castillo, and i'm here representing essential access health. we administer the title ten federal family planning program here in california, and i'd just like to thank supervisor brown and the entire board for championing access to sexually reproductive health care and taking action of this very critical issue. thank you for standing strong for this resolution to defend california and san francisco values. title ten has -- the title ten program has been a critical part of our public health system since service established. title ten supports the funding of quality family planning care like birth control, cancer screenings and other preventative health services. the trump administration's final regulations for the title ten program could did he have
4:33 pm
state california's title ten provider network and delay access to essential health services for patients served by the program across the state. the harmful regulations support some of the most extreme measures and policy changes proposed since the program was created. most significantly, the regulations would deny patients the quality care that they rely on and conflict with clinical best practices, violate medical ethics and current law and threaten decades of public health advancements. this is not only wrong and harmful, it's unhe had cath, harmful and unconstitutional, and that's why we're so thankful that you took a stand t today. >> president yee: thank you. next. >> we're just here to thank supervisor brown and her colleagues for taking a stand
4:34 pm
on this critical issue, and we want to emphasize that our clinicians do not want to be told whether or not they can give appropriate medical advice to their patients. just in response to supervisor brown's moving story, our clinics as well as the department of public health community clinics exist just so no one will have to go without needed health care. we have health care available to anyone regardless of ability to pay, and we encourage you to ask all of your constituents to take need of our services if they need it. several of our clinics have language and culturally appropriate diabetes prevention program, and they are here to serve. thank you very much. >> president yee: thank you. next? >> good afternoon, supervisors. kathrin showered. i'd like to talk about mary ann miller. i met her when the underground parking garage was proposed for the music concourse in golden gate park. one of the options promoted by
4:35 pm
the department of recreation and park was to cut down all of the over 100-year-old historic trees in front of the band shell in the music concourse. mary ann was with the neighborhood organization speak at that time. she attended many meetings in which we discussed many variouseous options to the propose -- various options to the proposed garage. we were able to save those trees and even landmark the music concourse. i would like to add that then board president aaron peskin was very instrumental in helping preserve those trees in the park.
4:36 pm
in the middle of all this, my husband and i moved next door to mary ann and jim, they were good neighbors. i remember waking up early one sunday morning during the first year of our new neighborhood and heard a lot of noise. they were holding a japanese mochi pounding party. it was one of many yearly customs that they started and maintained. we will miss them and having them as neighbors. >> president yee: thank you. any other public comments? come on up. if there are others that want to make public comments, please
4:37 pm
lineup. >> well, aaron peskin, i'm in agreement with him. i want to remind you of the history regarding jeff kozinski. remember the incident where him and his friends were in the back of the lyft, saying derogatory things? remember jeff regarding the policy shelter policies at the navigation centers? i remember. do you remember jeff cozkozins calling for an emergency at the homeless shelter? i remember. i tell you there's another thing, is the shelter
4:38 pm
monitoring -- i'm trying to figure out right now who is monitoring the standards of care at the homeless shelters? i've asked several times. i guess no answers. the -- get no answers. the city and county of san francisco under jeff kozinski's watch is violating san francisco code 200-2400. in addition, i am saying according to my records, the shelter monitoring committee has violated three meetings. they have missed three meetings in a row. right now, i'm wondering who is monitoring the sme monitoring shelters? you know, you have front line people at the shelters who have been incarcerated, who have
4:39 pm
drug usage. so you stereotype the homeless, but these front line workers are no better than the homeless themselves, and right now, we have no oversight. i mean, you know, oversight is very weak. >> president yee: thank you very much. thank you. okay. any other speakers? public comment is now -- >> stop, stop, stop. >> president yee: come on up. >> i'm from san francisco; a voice. i can't even talk. listen to me. never in my life -- i'm embarrassed, i let the city down, i let the kids down, everyone. all i care about is the churches and the people, nothing else, nothing else. nothing else. how did i let them down?
4:40 pm
i was out the other night, i only got 12 saves. jesus was only able to save 12 people, 12 people in the city that he was born in. we made it -- we made a mockery out of the system, and for that, we got kids out here that are disappointing their mothers and their families for ages. everyone's leaving jesus christ, and i was screaming here. there's nothing to pay me. i did it for you, my family did it for you, and then, you
4:41 pm
blasphemous. it's blind faith rkts blind faith, and you guys embarrassed them, embarrassed them. your parents, your grandmothers. think about it, they all believed in jesus, and he only got 12 saves working all night in the rain? i failed the people 'cause i failed the youth. it's not about us. when i can't get a kid to say he believes in jesus? listen, i'll get 20 billion saves in a night. my company -- you ask london. they do it professionally -- >> president yee: thank you. seeing no other speakers, public comment is now closed. madam clerk, please call item 58, which is scheduled pursuant to motion numbm-19-015 and appd
