don't believe that. liz: a volunteer with the san francisco cool -- school board recall campaign says their effort was not part of a bigger trend. >> we did something rare and important because the school board was so incompetent. liz: he said it's that is true. tuesday night was the 50 -- fifth recall in the city's history and the first successful one in 100 years, but after nearly 40 years without a recall election in san francisco, and it's notable this year, there are two, in june a recall for the district attorney will also be on the ballot. >> that says something. >> it says recalls are possibly easier to get on the ballot. social media, internet, emails, spreadsheets make it easier to get people excited. liz: as recalls become more common, there are growing efforts to reform the process. san francisco voters will decide
6:09 pm
brother to --whether to approve a measure that could limit the window when elected officials could be recalled. steve glaser is among the lawmakers working to reform the statewide process. he says the bar for recall should be higher. >> i want to make sure the standards are high enough to make a serious effort, not just harassment. alma: he says he believes last night's school board recall was a sign of a recall process working as it was intended. joshua said in past recalls, if there any indication, recalls, in ways. let's talk about recall reform. where do things stand as far as changing a process? liz: statewide, there have been meetings along -- among lawmakers but nothing has been formally introduced. state senator glaser wants to change the ballot so voters do not replace when they vote to

special election further. it resulted in the recall of three school board members. the mayor was asked this morning about shifting politics in the city. mayor breed: it is not about politics or having a progressive or moderate or liberal idea. it is about my kid it used to be a kid that was social and fun and is now quiet inside and does not smile. dan: let's bring in phil matier into the conversation. regarding what the mayor said, what is your take on this? was the recall about progressive politics, competence, emotion, or something else? phil: all of the above. it started out, you might recall, with the school board deciding of the removal of murals depicting the life of george washington, saying slavery and indians enslaved with harmful. and not something to look at. when they said names needed to
6:14 pm
come off 42 schools, whether it was abraham lincoln, because he was not politically correct anymore, people went, what is going on? that drove the attention to this board. what really happened here, dan, is they were dear -- very deep steeped in the woke idea, but completely asleep at the switch when it came to handling the pandemic. the schools stayed closed for a long time. parents felt their kids were getting a storch trip and the priorities were not in the right place. that is what we saw here. dan: this will be a wake-up call to everyone on the school boards around the bay area. san francisco is not done with recalls. another election coming up in june with voters deciding whether to recall the district attorney. he has been controversial recently. do you think that will help or hurt building a better bay area? phil: that depends on which side of the recall you're on. a lot of people right now would
6:15 pm
say san francisco cowtown and went with the sort of bil lionaire republicans out to change the school system and fed into that. they are saying this is about competence and despite politics and ideology, it's getting the j ob done. i think they have a point there. although these are uncomfortable, they are necessary and when you see 70 to 80% of the voters saying yes, that's a statement, and probably a healthy statement because it means ever take their place will be watched as closely. dan: no question about that. these recall votes were not close. talk more about tracy putin. he has to see these results and wonder what will happen in june. phil: any time somebody recalls, they have to pay attention. he came in on a judicial reform platform. he wants to hold the police accountable. he is getting heat for
6:16 pm
allegations that he is releasing people without properly seeing them through the judicial system and is easy on crime and letting people out. dan, i will tell you i have seen new poles out of uc berkeley. he is like a lot of politicians in the state. crime and homelessness are rising issues. people are starting to cite -- say one thing to be a does philosophical about this but you have to get the job done. if i were him, i would think, what do you do to keep your job? do your job. dan: phil matier. alma: a status emily member looking to get one of california's pesky asked pedestrian laws off the books. he took his pitch to the streets. >> the cost of citations people got for crossing the street when they go to work or the store or restaurant, this has led to a disincentive to work. alma: san francisco representative phil taine he used the streets to make his
