concerned about affordable housing, and there was a conditional use appeal of larkin that they voted to change as an emergency measure and they decided to -- the fact that the project for [inaudible] instead of the tndc project which we pontbacker wanted and we felt it was the best sites for senior housing which would have put in 56 units of fixed housing, which could have provided community facilities for a neighborhood that has no community center, no senior seiner, no library or police station with a public room, no place for social activities whatsoever. we used to do it in that charge. we couldn't get your attention when we were trying to file the appeal. it's a neighborhood where you would never baibltd get 20% of the neighborhoods because it is a neighborhood of chinese
4:31 pm
family properties, most of them don't live there and many of them just don't get involved and the ones that did get involved, one of them sent me a list of the supervisors she wanted me to contact to have the five sponsors, she said these would be people who westbound sympathetic to seniors and minorities and she felt campos and kim and mar and cohen and yee and she forgot avalos, and then there were the three at least who grew up here and whose wonderful schools were beaten by washington pretty often and there's supervisor wiener would's concerned about efficiency units and in this case we would have double density studios or one bedrooms and 30% of the buildings were not going to be used for cars, for 60 thousand dollars to a neighborhood association, that was the alternative.

>> thank, -- thanks, next speaker. >> good afternoon, supervisors, my name is douglas chef, for the record, do any of the supervisors remember that o.j. simpson played football at galileo, secondly, i would like to say, i have a dream, i really have a dream, i have a dream that harvey milk will come back to life and say what took so long to get justice for my fellow dead gay men, it's amazing how harvey milk is such a revered figure but yet someone just so similar to harvey is completely ignored, no justice for 13 years, so in my opinion, if you're going the say harvey milk is a great man, then you ought to follow the same example and say we're
4:33 pm
going to check out joe sevalosmen, every gay man is equal, so if you respect one, you better respect the next gay one, the gay man's curse is continued on for the warriors, three recent injuries and hopefully no more, when think hear about the curse, they're not going the want to come back to san francisco, and lastly, i would like to welcome the people sitting in the back queues, being a crime fetter, i would like to tell them the god honest truth, this building is very impressive but realistically, public corruption exists in every city, so since you are young and you have your career ahead of you, i would encourage you the fiekt public corruption and let's put it this way, many people in the fbi are getting old and we could sure use some new blood because let's put it this way, the only time we're
4:34 pm
going to end public corruption is to stamp it out one person at a time. thank you. >> next speaker. >> good afternoon. president chiu, fellow board members, madam clerk, my name is lawrence flores, the americas cup came and went, obviously we had a lot of labor issues, a lot of challenges but with that, what we need to do is move forward. we need to move forward and make the next event a positive one. and i'm speaking to the one of the super bowl, of sponsoring the super bowl here in the bay area. that's what's important, moving forward on a positive note, learning from our mistakes of
4:35 pm
what happened. and with that, i'm happy to report that last friday, the america's cup event authority issued a check to the office of labor standard enforcement of 404 thousand dollars to be paid to the workers that performed the work at phase 1 of the america's cup. that is a significant amount, that is like an early merry christmas to the workers because time and time again, it's all about the workers and even the workers behind me. that was a huge success and it finally happened. and i do want to thank the office of labor standard enforcement, donna le v*it, mary berzoto, that was information provided by carp there's local 22, but i want to
4:36 pm
thank this board for standing behind them, but also standing with san francisco residents of job opportunities here in san francisco, but most of all, i want to thank supervisor bulldog avalos who's very vocal on the workers, in support of the workers time and time again and thank you supervisor, and thank you all and i wish you all a happy thanksgiving and don't eat
4:37 pm
4:38 pm
>> i would like to ask a quick question, mr. casey, how can we
4:39 pm
support these workers? >> right now, what we're asking for is elected leaders and other civic leaders to endorse the boycott of center plate and food and beverage at the ballpark. >> i have a question. >> supervisor cohen? >> thank you. so, what i heard from a lot of the workers, boycott, to me, that means if i'm at the ballpark, don't buy food, it's as simple as that? >> it's that simple but there's a lofted of eventess, a big part of center plate's income comes from catering events, and so they have all kinds of events, you know, not just during the games but during the off season and when the games aren't being played, so we're asking people to boycott those catered events as well. >> this also includes candle stick? >> no, we're not boy contending
4:40 pm
-- boycotting the food at candle stick. >> center plate is also -- the contracts with candle stick, it would be contracted within the new stadium, so in my opinion, if we're looking at a larger issue about workers, we're talking about, yes, they may not be in the city and county of san francisco but maybe going down to santa clara county. >> they've been rewarded with that, but there is a responsibility, absolutely, for center plate to do this but we think that the responsibility goes beyond that because these are jobs that unfortunately are very low wage and it's not only center plate that is ignoring the responsibilities we're focusing on, the giants won two world series in four years and our members have not had a wage increase in four years during
4:41 pm

a r-r s, because he's a terrorist and goes about obama's book, he's going the drive a farar ri and go into mcdonalds, with we are dealing with prophesy, we're dealing with centuries before the big event of the death of christ, not 478 minutes by centuries and centuries, for instance on psalm sunday when jesus rode the donkey, 400 years before it happened, god said it had to happen in jerusalem, it had to happen in the 497th year, he said we would be yankedbacker wounded for our transgressions, the reason why he would die would be for our transgression, these are detail, where and where he would die, when he would die, where he would be born. when christ arose from the
