4:00 pm
i love my work. it has been incredibly fulfilling and it has been such a privilege to serve my constituents in san mateo and san francisco. it is tough. i will say that. larry: as mentioned, a lot of people were caught off guard by this announcement today. kristen: reporter leslie brinkley talk to her constituents and other leaders for their reaction to the announcement. >> after 30 date years, it is probably time for the torch to be passed. another generation. leslie: for congresswoman jackie speier, the voice for the peninsula, the accolades for her years of public service world in. >> satch a chronic figure. when you think of san mateo county, you have to think about congresswoman speier. when you think about it what she has done around consumer protection, around women's rights.
4:01 pm
she is truly beloved by her constituents. >> i have always thought highly of her. >> i was rather impressed that she on veterans day came here. i thought that was really nice. reporter: she said what she was most proud of was changing child support enforcement laws. >> also the baby bullet which we got from san francisco to san jose which cut the commute in half. and then hearing congress, it has been a labor of love around issues around sexual assault in the military, on college campuses. >> checking gave -- jackie gave voice to survivors who had been voiceless. people could understand the pain and the retaliation they were facing while serving our country. jackie is one in a million. she is a shero to many of us. a true epitome of a leader, what
4:02 pm
we all hope for when we elect someone to go to congress and speak for us. >> hard shoes to fill. leslie: i am leslie brinkley, abc 7 news. kristen: spear bang is a bay area native born in san francisco in 1950, graduating from mercy high school in burlingame. she studied political science at uc davis and received a law degree from hastings in 1976, and from there, it was washington. her life and politics began as an aide to congressman ryan. in november of 1978, 43 years ago this week, spear bang traveled with him to jonestown, guyana on a mission to rescue numbers from a cold run by jim jones. as ryan's delegation was about to leave, they came under fire on an airport tarmac ryan and four others were killed, spear bang badly wounded -- spear pop
4:03 pm
wounded. >> i pretended to be dead. for congressman was shot over 40 times. and i was shot five times. kristen: she vowed her life to public service if she survived. she ran for a seat on the san mateo county board of supervisors in 1980 and won. six years later she headed to sacramento for the first of her terms in the state assembly. in 1988, she founded the professional is nuts women of california. what started as a group of women gathered around the coffee table, it grew to the largest conference of its kind in the u.s.. abc 7 is a proud sponsor. spear memo served two terms in the state senate. a highlight included securing funding for the baby bullet train. she was elected to the first of seven terms in the house of representatives.
4:04 pm
her accomplishments are long and a. joining me now is abc 7 news insider phil matier with more on what this means. good to see you. everyone is in shock, even those who knew her very well. how seismic is disallowed and? phil: it is big. she was a voice not only on national issues and women's rights, but also very effective constituents in local politics and bringing projects like bullet trains and such to her district. she was also a presence and still continues to be. i am not sure she is ready to just stay home and watch tv. she is a very accomplished person and i think she has a future still ahead of her. kristen: definitely. what does this mean for bay area politics? phil: it will be interesting. what we will see is a question of who succeeds her. you don't replace jackie spear. you just hope to a good enough job to somewhat fill the shoes.
4:05 pm
there are some contenders. probably one of the leading contenders is that state assemblyman kevin mullin. he would have a lot of democratic support. josh bakker, a state senator who just got not to sacramento, replaced jerry hill who told me today he is not running for congress. then we have joseph median who has done time in sacramento and also in the peninsula. that would depend on how the district is redrawn. if it goes south enough, it could include his area. in one person i would not rule out is former san mateo police chief susan manheim i. she is very well known in the district and very well-liked liked and she has her thoughts about how she could have a voice in national politics as well. and there is david canopia of daly city. but i have to tell you, it is questionable who is going to run. it is a very tough job and a very grueling job.
4:06 pm
jackie speier, for example, she worked monday through friday in washington and then she would get on a plane and fly back to california, and then sunday, fly back. when you are there, usually are bunking with other congresspeople because you don't have necessarily the money for a house in washington, it is really expensive. it is a tough job. behind a lot of it is also the question of next year, if the democrats lose control of the house, then you are to the back, no longer in the front. kristen: that is what i wanted to ask you about. no doubt, she wants to spend time with family. it is a grueling life, but she is the 14th democrat to announce she will not seek congressional reelection next year. what does this suggest about what may happen in the midterms? phil: between that and the gerrymandering going on in republican-dominated states, it does not look good for democrats. . one of the big questions is, jackie speier today, is it going to be nancy pelosi tomorrow or down the line, who announces
4:07 pm
this will be her last full term? that is the issue everyone is waiting to see if it will be dropped. kristen:. kristen: all right, she will be on with us again on abc 7 news at 6:00. thank you for your insights, and the political game of watching to see who will emerge. thanks, phil. larry: now to the latest covid-19 headlines. pfizer has filed for emergency use authorization of appeal it says shows -- of a po it says it shows 90% reduction of the risk of covid hospitalization or deaths. new year's eve revelers will be able to return to times square this year, but you must show proof of vaccination. here in california, our test positivity rate is going down again. we are at 2% compared to 2.2% a couple of weeks ago. california health officials recently said that anybody 18 or older who was fully vaccinated six months ago qualifies to get

4:09 pm
today they announced booster shot appointment through their site will be available starting thursday. >> this was a decision without much notice, and, there were, the wonderful people that helped maintain these websites are not able to quickly pivot as quick as we would want. luz: another setback -- to get a booster shot, the cdc says some needs to check one of these criteria is: to be 65 or older, have an underlying medical condition, in a long-term care facility or be at high risk at work. pharmacies like cvs and walgreens are following what the cdc recommends, creating a disconnect for californians. . which means counties across the bay area are now having to explain where they stand. marin county says -- >> we are acknowledging this wider eligibility. luz: san francisco department of public health said, no one should be turned away if they feel they are at risk of covid-19. contra costa county's health officer said, the cdc's
