4:23 am
us appreciate and respect the work that nonprofit efshgz do in the interference fighting some of the most vulnerable individuals we have and they're not making a lot of money. i think as we asked them to do important work we make sure we help them and their families be able to live in san francisco and the bay area so i ask for your support >> president chiu. >> i'll supported the cost of living increases and as supervisor campos just said i agree that nonprofit workers often do some of the most important work at the lowest salaries i can't prioritize the funding but acknowledge this year and prior years it's likely there will be a variety of needs
4:24 am
that could include for example, needing to fund non-violation and tenant needs for the evictions and the associate serve of non-documented youth in central america i don't think i've considered a resolution to support a appropriation by ask mr. gibner my understanding this is a non-binding resolution so if we make a decision to spend money we'll have to pass another supplemental appropriations is that right. >> john gibner, deputy city attorney. >> that's right the resolution is an expression of intent that the board will appropriate the owners and make a policy call as
4:25 am
to whether or not to adapt that ordinance. >> again colleagues this is an expression i'm going to support it with the acknowledgment there are other needs we'll need to consider i don't plan to introduce a series of resolutions like this to support of the possibility of needs of supporting violence prevention or social services for immigrant youth but want to say obviously we'll have to evaluate that given the needs given that i want to support our nonprofits organizations and the workers and i'll support this resolution. >> thank you supervisor tang. >> thank you. i do want to echo all that was said between supervisor campos and david
4:26 am
chiu i'll say in the past i've not supported measures that were taken outside the budget process again to stay consistent with milestone my own belief many our our conversations has to stay between the context. today i've not supported measures by my own colleague even though their measures and efforts i agreed with but again we are taken out of complexity i will not support in but not to say i don't agree that our workers need to be making more funds to survive in san francisco and the incredible work >> supervisor breed. >> thank you. i want to make a couple of comments when i was the director of the
4:27 am
african-american culture complex i know that supervisor kim pushed aggressively to support a cost of living increase which we received for our organization. i paid my employees very well and they had health care benefits at the time i took the increases that was provided to our organization and actually apply it towards programs i was not guaranteed to increase the salaries of my staffer this is the reason why i can't support this item the cost of cola or cost of living we don't have control over how those few minutes are specifically used number one and number 2 although it is an important thing we do throughout the process the budget process and fought how to spend money it's important to
4:28 am
support nonprofit organizations doing the important work to serve our community but not taking it out the context of the budget process especially commenting ourselves to someone we have two colleagues that are running two colleagues that won't be here next year and we as members of the board trying to meet in obligation i think we should try but this legislation not to be brought back and use asia tool to say you've made a commitment when there's other priorities i want to focus on those are the two major reasons and i think we need to figure out other ways to deal with situations number one we have a budget process and the budget process is over it's time to move on to work on some of the things we're commented to work
4:29 am
on and including nonprofits in my district are going to benefit because we've added an additional funding to their organizations but minimum wage peace and the children's fund those those initiatives are going to add value to our nonprofit organizations as he regarding to those and this is not the right way to go about it >> supervisor wiener >> thank you, mr. president. so i have supported some supplementals and others not support them case by case we're appreciable for things to go through the normal budget process but sometimes things arises in the middle of the year whether an unaccepted federal budget cut or or time sensitive
4:30 am
situation we can't wait so it's a case by case. in terms of that specific item i'm not expressing on opinion whether it's a good or bad thing i've supported the business in the past i know we have a lot of nonprofits when and workers in the nonprofits that could benefit from a cost of doing business adjustment our nonprofit partners in an absolutely essential part of the work and the services we provide and help provide as a city. with that said, what does make me uncomfortable about the resolution it is lesbian the nicaragua substance whether to the some point in this year we should do a cost of living adjustment it's more about the fact we just adapted our
