4:03 pm
woman should take her seat in the interim, but chan's family advocated for chan's longtime aide and chief of staff, dave brown. her son spoke to the board this afternoon before the vote. i'm not the first person to point out to you that dave brown is a caucasian male. but looking past his race and gende, he is the most qualified person to fill the vacancy left by my mom's passing. he has the experience and knowledge to represent the district and understanding and compassion to continue the work seamlessly until next year's election. brown can't run for the seat since he doesn't live and vote in the district. so darren chan said this appointment will be free of any political agenda. a long time peninsula. congresswoman democrat jackie speier announced today that she will not seek re election. in a video message, speer said that it is time to come home and time to be more than a weekend wife, mother and friend. minutes after that announcement, we spoke with a seven term congresswoman during mornings on to here, says
4:04 pm
she's thought about retirement now for a while, and that she plans to say, active and involved in politics and her community. you give it. it's also time to pass the torch to another generation, so i am looking forward to coming home to being there for my husband and children and friends and also to find new ways to contribute to the community. so. there are more chapters in my life book, and i plan on writing those chapters with all the people who i know and love. now prior to being elected to the house in 2000 and eight here was a long time member of the california state legislature and a congressional aide. she says that she decided 43 years ago to dedicate her life to public service. that's when she was shot in guyana while working as a staff assistant for the late representative leo ryan. they were there investigating the jonestown cult community for more on spears retirement decision. let's talk now with david mcewen, political science professor at sonoma steak, david. thank you so much for being here. spear obviously has
4:05 pm
a very long political career serving at the county state and the national level. and never takes her seat. we'll have some big shoes to fill. heather no doubt. i mean, look, this is a political career that really spans from jonestown to january. 6th jackie has been someone who's been front and center on so many important issues for liberal groups, progressive groups for women. she was at the forefront of the me too. movement before the me too. movement was going, but even beyond that she's been if you look at the tragedy of her personal life, those five gunshots that she suffered on the airstrip there in guyana, you know she's on the tarmac there for 22 hours and swears to herself that if she survives that she's going to give her life. the public service. she does that she loses that first election goes onto the board of supervisors in san mateo county ultimately rises and obviously in congress. she's part of that kitchen cabinet inside group for nancy pelosi, and she's been there in that in that regard for the speaker, whipping up votes as democrats retook the house
4:06 pm
from 2018. it's very interestin, though, because what we're seeing here is a wave of strategic retirements by democrats. in lieu over and wake of what is likely to be a republican takeover next year. you have to place all of that, in the context of what's been a spectacular political career. yes, so let's talk more broadly about spears departure. she is the 14th house democrat to indicate that they will not seek re election. what does this pile up of retirement signal for democrats? right. we saw a pile up like this in 2018 by republicans before democrats nancy pelosi come back in to take the campaigns there and the midterms in 2018. we expect 2022 election to be contentious one but if you're kevin mccarthy, and if you're republican leaders and strategists throughout the country, while california delivered nancy pelosi back to the house with people like jackie speier raising money across the country, you're really seeing a red wave build and you're going to see more
4:07 pm
strategic retirements by democrats, perhaps not in california as we draw those lines but across the country. so pay attention to that in those swing districts that emboldens someone like obviously former president donald trump, but it really emboldened someone like kevin mccarthy and his leadership team, and republicans are positioning themselves to sweep back into the house next year, a long time between now and then, but that's what they're looking forward to. you mentioned this idea of redistricting here in californi, so i want to talk a little bit about a possible replacement for jackie speier. as you mentioned, the landscape will be very different in the next election. i'll do to that redistricting. i want to pull up now what the 14th congressional district looks like right now, david, but obviously the lines are being redrawn. yeah and if you look at the 14th now what you see is this kind of, you know, part of daily city, south san francisco down if you will into that san matteo region and parts of east palo alto. it's going to change a lot. it's going to be more compact in the new maps and in those new maps, it's also going to present some dilemmas. what
4:08 pm
do you do with the north and south end of that district? what happens for example to someone in the assembly like a mark berman or state senator like josh becker? what is scott wiener of san francisco? do he'll have part of that district? what does the county supervisor in san mateo county several of them will have a free ride? three of them don't run for reelection till 2024 so it's going to be in some ways a big shakeup, but this is really a bigger issue going on at this. jackie talked about this today kind of this generational change and divide that's going on with the democratic party. you're going to see this with speaker pelosi. you're going to see this with other democrats in the leadership. and that's what republicans are sensing as they move past the events of 2021 into the 2022 election period. okay so, david, we're just about out of time, but i don't want to let this moment get away from jackie spear. how do you believe that history will judge her time in office? look, she is a leader of progressive women on progressive issues and has been there at the forefront of those
4:09 pm
issues. whether she was with willie brown and the assembly or she was in the state senate, or she was with democrats in and out of the majority in congress, and that means she's not going away. she's going to be front and center. she's going to be out there talking about the vice president and kamala harris across the country. she has a role as a leader for progressives for women and for democrats that will certainly make her front and center on television early and often next year as well. i had the pleasure of working with the congresswoman on a number of causes in san mateo county and have to say everyone who was in attendance just was delighted by her also being in attendance. david mcewan really appreciate your time today. thank you. thank you very much, heather. we've now learned what investigators took from the home of former windsor mayor dominic foot poli. a search warrant was served at his home last week and, according to court documents, 10 items were remove, including two laptops. three ipads camera, a cellphone and a recorder. the investigation began back in april after several women accused police of

4:42 pm
thought of invisibility that were invisible, even though we're in plain sight, or this thought that native americans are people of the past. um because again, the clothes that we wear and the practices that we are, you know, participated on a daily basis like we're all right doing driving in cars and we're not you know, on horseback anymore, and so different things like that. i feel like the stereotypes have been perpetuated so much that if you don't fall under their those stereotypes often times you're not seen as an american indian within this community, and so our work to really validate people's existence to really validate the importance and the and the cultural connections that they have after their tribes to their languages, and to, um preserving that culture. what is you know? so important to that positive self identity and that positive self concept so that we don't have a community that, you know, just kind of lost and searching for meaningful purpose in this world in order to sort of guide your
4:43 pm
work as a nonprofit, you rely on the wisdom of native american elders, and that's that's a key component of what you do that sort of gives you a mission and a vision. absolutely a lot of our work is really, um, filtered through the voices and the experiences of our elders within our community. um the bay area has a unique history. you know, the it's the homeland of the aloni people. um. and in the night late 19 fifties early 19 sixties during the relocation area are era. excuse me. a lot of folks from different tribes came out to the bay area, and now we have 2nd and 3rd generation folks that you know, maybe from a tribe in montana or in arizona and new mexico or oklahoma, that is, you know, that are really identify with being from oakland, but then also also to identify with being a member of their tribe and really understanding like. membership of a tribe means that you're a citizen of a whole another nation and so really navigating. um those
4:44 pm
relationships between tribal folks and their tribe and then also just again finding a place where they belong. i here in the city of oakland, your organization has been around since 1974. can you talk a little bit about why? why the organization started in the first place. what was the need that was seen in the community that prompted this nonprofit to come about. our organization was founded by a group of nurses who were again you know how do support our community, and that means. i'm in overtime and move with the names of funny. community and bleeding written focused on education through thursday. the referendum. up. counseling to foster care work to do all kinds of, uh, better
4:45 pm
actually rooted at it. curriculum so that one, uh probable identity and making it like a hegemonic. platform for all folks to learn under but very really taking different components from different tribes that resonate with the youth that we serve it. you know, obviously, funding is always a challenge, right? i mean, you know, no matter what for any organization like yours, and especially during the pandemic. i imagine it's not much more difficult. how? how important and how much of an impact as community support whether it's financial or it comes in another form. how important is that to the work you do? oh, absolutely community finding community giving his is, i would say the most important stream one. it validates our importance by the community and to it allows us to have unrestricted funds that were able to use and creative ways to better serve our community. sometimes the grants that we write really are focused
4:46 pm
in on a particular strategy and in particular, uh, you know, program. and so this gives us opportunities to really be creative with that funding to see other ways and how we can grow the organization and grow the services that we provide. i'm without restrictions, so community support is very, very important to us. alright. appreciate you taking the time manny liras with the american indian child resource center. thanks for doing it. thank you, alex. and if you want to learn more about the american indian child resource center, or if you would like to donate to the group, you can scan the q r code. that's right there on your screen or head to ktvu .com/ giving day. well, why there isn't about thursday, friday last week we've been dealing with that persistent morning fo, the dense fog near zero visibility impacting the commut. tomorrow should be a little bit of a different story as we kind of scale back on the fog coverage, and eventually we're talking about this. some shower chances returning to the bay area forecast, but as you can
