>> hello. i'm shauna-the league of women voters could along with the league and sfgov
9:46 pm
tv i'm here to discuss opposition-about measure before the voters on tuesday, november 8. the city generally requires developers of market rate housing of tenant units or more to provide affordable housing. the developer can meet the requirements in one of three ways. one, pay and afford housing fee. two, construct off-site affordable housing. were three, construct on-site affordable housing. on-site residential unit houses affordable for low income households that it is affordable for households earning up to 55% of the area median income and on-site rental unit on zero affordable for middle income households that is affordable for households earning up to 1% of the area median income. the city uses federal income standards to determine the maximum allowable rent levels for the affordable unit. the rent is updated each year. opposition u would change the department for development
9:47 pm
on-site husband it would increase income eligibility for on-site rental units for all new and existing 41 housing units. under proposition u and the rental unit counted towards the affordable housing requirement must be available for households earning up to 110% of the area median income. opposition u would increase the gross income of households to be eligible for affordable housing. from 55% to 110% of the area median income. it would also set the vector unit at 30% of the household growth income is always that household is up to 1% and 10% of area median income. this proposal applies retroactively to rental units those under the affordable housing program. the rental price for each unit we calculated annually based on the households gross income if you vote yes you want to increase the income eligibility limit for on-site rental units for all new and existing affordable housing units to make them affordable for households earning up to 110% of the area median income. if
9:48 pm
you vote, no, you do not want to make this change. i'm here with leah-campaign manager for yes on u and opponents of the measure were also joined by peter: that oh director of the san francisco counsel community housing organizations and opponents of proposition. thank you both for being here. were there to start with opening remark some begin with you, leah >> be taken in the face of the worst housing shortage that san francisco has ever seen, the city has rightly focused on resources for low income to have affordable housing. as a result san francisco middle class and many people like myself, have been largely ignored. they're struggling with the high cost of market rate housing but currently do not qualify based upon the ami limit. if you make $60,000 or above you do not qualify. these residents are artists,
9:49 pm
construction workers, food service workers and mothers and parents that are then pushed out of the san francisco. proposition u will help families like myself and others stay in the city that they love because we all deserve to stay in san francisco and added value. >> thank you, leah. opening remarks? >> yes, i think we need to start with who actually with this measure on the bow. this measure was designed by input on about by the san francisco realtors association. the campaign for the measure is being funded by the national association of realtors and the california association of realtors. the question is, what are the realtors such a great interest in san francisco and what is essentially changing the exclusionary housing policy which was established back in 2002 by then supervisor mark leno. with this measure does effectively, we is reverse the
9:50 pm
measure that was just passed by 68% of voters in june of this year. proposition c which increased our cities requirement of private developers to provide affordable units. we increased it to 25% of the units they have to provide but also most importantly they now have to provide both low and middle income units. this measure would eliminate the low income units and make all inclusionary middle income. >> thank you, mark. the next question in creasing amount of people that would be eligible for affordable housing, how's exactly is that going to affect our housing crisis. is it going to help it or is it going to hurt it? >> is important to number doesn't increase the people who are eligible for affordable housing. there is no knew of for the housing units that are accreted by proposition u to developers have to create the exact number of units. what it means they can target the pricing for these units to a higher class of people than they currently do. as i mentioned, we currently have as of this past june's proposition c which was passed by voters,
9:51 pm
to tears. a low income portion of the increase and a middle income portion. the planning department was asked by the department of elections to opine on this measure. they called it very simply, this is a lemonade in the to tears when creating a single tear of inclusionary just for middle income. so it doesn't create any new housing opportunity. it just changes who gets them. >> same question to you, leo >> yes. this proposition would increase the income limits. those who are making $60,000-$100,000. does your middle-class people like myself. i grew up as a middle-class san franciscans. every christmas and hauling my mother worked because they were middle income. they do not qualify for anything. get to
9:52 pm
work for time in half and overtime on every holiday. my father worked at an usher at the giant game as well just to make ends meet. they do not qualify for affordable housing. discount recology were any programs for their children. they barely survived in san francisco. this will allow san francisco not to be a two-tier city where your low income and your height income. middle income individuals are working-class san franciscans that i'd love. this is taking 2% of the housing stock and adding the income limit to allow those who are able to pay a little bit more to add to the 04 the housing development to make sure they're able to survive in san francisco. many of the families that were pregnant with myself have left san francisco because their middle-class and can no longer afford to stay here. >> thank you, leo. the next question is, it proposition u form passes we increase the amount of people who are eligible for this affordable
9:53 pm
housing, how do we ensure there still enough housing for lowest income neighbors? >> yes. this proposition will increase the income limit amount on the ami limit. currently evidently a for the lowest income amount is around $54,000. many san franciscans who are in the edge would allow them to qualify but would not be taken away what taken away from the logan. is adding for middle income san franciscans so that they are able to stay in san francisco were very diverse city and it allows for that diversity and housing and resources for them as well. >> same question to you. >> sure. the way it increases housing for middle income families is by taking it away from low income families. that's inherently the cynical part of this measure is that it hits now families against each other based on the income level. the current inclusionary housing policy the city has, pale portion that is dedicated for income households for them before that about 100,000-$110,000 a year. that exist currently. with this
9:54 pm
measure would do is take the portion that's dedicated for low income service worker families in a lemonade that allow middle income families to have all of the pipe. >> thank you. closing statements. leo, we will start with you >> yes. a thriving city depends upon qualified teachers to help student. nurses to care for the sick and first responders to save our lives. but our approach to housing has caused a crisis for middle income families. they do not have resources get as a result, between 2009 and 2015 san francisco's lost over 15,000 middle income residents. from san francisco. if this continues, we will be a two-tier city the rich and the poor. what will happen to our middle income? do they not deserve to live in san francisco. i believe they do. the people like myself, my family, and many of the people that i know in san francisco. in order to preserve our middle class and also engaged with our low income we need to pass
9:55 pm
proposition u to help our middle-class stay in san francisco because our families just like me. >> thank you, leo. peter? >> aborts it with this measure also does is exacerbate the displacement crisis we been having in san francisco. that displacement crisis has been no worse than in the african-american and latino communities. 100% ami which is a proposition u will make all inclusionary housing for is above what the african-american and latino populations in san francisco make on average. middle income is not the same across all of our communities of san francisco. the terribly
9:56 pm
divisive aspect of it is the communities that need it the most to stem the tide of displacement, are being priced out by the policy under proposition u. that's why this measures opposed by the united educators are teachers, is opposed by the american federation of teachers of city college. debate was opposed by the labor council coalition of san francisco neighborhoods by the neighborhood network by the democratic party. it's opposed by spur which is a very centrist policy organization. this measure is not good policy. the realtors are not trying to do this in the best interest of either low or middle income san franciscans. he was thank you. thank you both for your comment and time. we hope that this discussion has been informative. for more information on this and other ballot measures this year's election, these visit the san francisco election remember, early voting is available at city hall monday through friday from 8 am until 5 pm. you can also vote at city hall when the two weekends before election day. if you don't vote early,
9:57 pm
>> hello. i am shauna-with the league of women voters along with a leak and sfgov tv i'm here to discuss proposition q about measure before the voters on tuesday, november 8. city law prohibits the willful obstruction of public sidewalks. city law also rises of prominent public health to remove public nuisances which include unsanitary structures. city law does not specifically granted raising tens on public sidewalks. proposition q would prohibit the contents without a city permit. the city would not be allowed to remove world order removal and authorize tenant in this the city had available shelters for all residents of the tenant under proposition q includes city operated shoulders navigation centers, and other city
9:58 pm
operated housing. before we move were ordering of diesel to remove non-authorized tent on a public sidewalk, the city would be required to offer shelter to all residents, offered to pay the cost to transport all tent residents to live with friends or family outside of san francisco and provide written notice that the city will remove the tenant in 24 hours. if residents do not accept the city's offer of housing were shelter or do not remove the unauthorized tent within 24 hours of the notice, the city may remove the 10th. after removing the tenant the city would be required of written notice near the area where the tent was look good if you vote yes, you want to prohibit the placement of tens on public sidewalks without a city permit and allow the city to remove unauthorized tent is the city provides 24 hour advance notice offer shelter for all tent residents store the personal property of 290 days. if you vote, no, you do not want make
9:59 pm
these changes. i'm here with jim lazarus senior vice president of the san francisco chamber of commerce and proponent of proposition q you were also by quentin mickey volunteer for the no on letter to on the measure could think of her being here. i like to start with opening remarks meeting with you, jim >> the homelessness has reached epidemic proportion. while total number of homeless is remained fairly stable over the last 30 years, recently the number of people living on streets and in parks and skyrocketed. were the worst symptoms is tenant encampments spread it in our neighborhoods in front of homes and businesses. it's not compassionate to allow our fellow human beings to live in tents on the street. it's dangerous and unhealthy. proposition that the housing not tents measure will make it city policy to move the homeless out of these encampments and into shelter and housing. it requires notice
10:00 pm
and storage of personal property animates it city policy to find emergency shelter for people living on the street. the policy that was discarded in the late 1980s when camp at nose appeared in civic center plaza. allowing tends to remain in place only prolongs homelessness and doesn't help people get the services they need. the board of supervisors won't pass a reasonable regulations. it's time for the voters to do it by voting yes on q >> thank you. quentin? >> yes, proposition q has a measure that as long history of previous night. there was care not cash. with the insight panhandling measure. with a set line measured. it is a misguided attempt at playing upon people's national frustrations with the poverty and homelessness that exist in san francisco. let's be clear about the title. housing not tense. there is neither any housing within the-nor is there funny for homeless service. more importantly, i think this is actually the danger of the actual measure, jeff kosinski the head of the city department
10:01 pm
of homelessness, is not asking or requiring up the québec paschal for the actual clearing out against it they're doing that right now. what prop q actually doesn't codify a process that prevents legal ramifications. right now, the cities were moving in cameras as we speak. they're not waiting for prop q did prop q means if they cannot provide shelter than they can remove this and caymans and that's the problem. >> thank you, quentin. my next question is how is proposition q different from laws that are already passed in san francisco? how will it change things spewing all-star when you become acquainted >> quite simply from our perspective, both the city and state law already cover lodging on sidewalks. there is ample room for the police to remove them. earlier this year on division street the city in coordination with the police department removed in canada
10:02 pm
long division street. just two weeks ago the removed a large and kim and long-creek. the laws are already in place in the city has every hour it needs good prop q that would take a different tack and essentially codified by mandating that the city cannot remove homeless and cameras unless shelter is provided. let's be clear. there at the last count 6500 homeless individuals in the city could not including youth and families. there's only 1200 adult shelter beds in the city. so this idea that we can suddenly offer shelter to everybody and they would be off the streets in a homeless encampment problem is going to disappear overnight it is simply not. which i think is one of the reasons why the chronicle recommended no on proposition q it is something ugly to change anything. more importantly, is going to tie the hands of the city department on homeless and the city hired, the mayor hired jeff kosinski sam dodge a talented team of people to actually really dress homes. this is a
10:03 pm
very cynical measure that is simply not adding value to its happening in the city when the city is really trying to come together around a very challenging issue. in a rather play upon people's fears for what we think is and we just political gain. >> thank you quentin same question to you, jim. >> currently doesn't cover every seconds and you have a public of issue or a [inaudible] but the board when i passed the voters had to some years ago. at the time limit is required by law. so you cannot move somebody at midnight editing cam and that's blocking a sidewalk. this legislation will give the police department and the city and our social service departments, the ability to identify those in cameras that need to be relocated, give proper notice, secure locations for personal property, and turned around a

growth in homelessness on the streets get we don't have 6000 people on the streets every night. we have 6000 identified homeless in san francisco. and we have probably 2000 that need to move into shelter. this will make it city policy approved by the voters. towing city hall create that shelter them a tip people off the streets and out of the parks. >> thank you. the second question is, how do we ensure the services are available given that right now they're weightless for shelter beds in san francisco? >> there's empty shelter beds every night in the city. there's no doubt the city has to do more good we had more shelter beds 30 years ago than we have today. under emergency base. where we have been successful as outcomes. supportive housing. cities building hundreds of units of supportive housing right now. the city is building new navigation centers right now. so there will be the means to move people off the streets and out of parks. the of vigilante justice out there. the home was killing homeless in golden gate park. we prostitution in tents. we have stolen property. it's
10:05 pm
time to really get serious about taking homeless people and treat them as human beings and get them off the streets out of the parks, into programs and this is just one more step, one more opportunity, for the voters to tell the elected officials another is enough. you can see meetings in the mission and south of market and northeast where businesses and residents are coping with really difficult circumstances in their homes, in their neighborhoods. the homeless need to be served but not in it tends and kim and. >> thank you. quicken, same question to you >> i'm very clear about this. if we wanted scuttled treat individual six parenting homelessness as humans than we would stop with the stereotypes of prostitution, rape, on homeless murdering homeless. i can flash back to 14, 15 years
10:06 pm
ago when then supervisor newsom put forth care not cash and the basis of that campaign was inciting these stereotypes about the poorest people in our city that i think shame on this campaign. shame on proposition q for even saying or implying that is the reality that's what happened on the streets right now. there's nothing right now in proposition q as jim talked about all these long tensions, that is not already happening. we just created a department of homelessness. we just hired jeff kosinski. we're trying to put funding into truly addressing homelessness in the city and yet were taking a step backward for apparently supervisor farrell on the
10:07 pm
intent. it's unclear how this adds value to this conversation at all. a time when the city is trying to come together we are once again, dividing the stereotypes that i think are very unjust and unfair to those individuals were expensing. should the people should be frustrated with what's happened with homelessness in this. people should be frustrated that this tent and chemistry let city officials do their job. they're doing it right now. they're certainly not waiting for proposition q to pass before they do it. >> thank you, quentin. are going to move into closing the market will start with you, jim. >> thank you. we need proposition q because despite without opponents a no current law truly addresses tent and cameras. the opponents argue that only housing gets people off the street and they are right. every night we have taken shelter beds and over the next two years the cities building 300 new supportive housing units and six new homeless navigation centers. but don't take it from me. kathy black, the executive director of the casa-the city's oldest organization that responds to provide help to those of victims of domestic violence the chronicle op-ed piece just a few days ago. i have it here. rate is right in

tent cities. this is not some kind of campaign rhetoric. these are not people by and large good just lost their home. the criminal activity on the streets in front of people's homes and in front of businesses. seven rapes in the first six months of 2016 although. she says tent cities are not as a place for an injured little on vulnerable women to live. nobody should have to live in fear period. pop q should make our cities say. kathy black. so we urge the voters of san francisco to support proposition q >> thank you, jim. quicken, closing remarks >> yes. i think proposition q is more of the status quo. important our city has engaged in over the years. rather than truly trying to address
10:09 pm
homelessness and poverty, we criminalize it to be stereotyped it. do so for unfortunately political purposes. i think that we have an opportunity by rejecting proposition q to send a message different message than with jim wants to send to city hall that we can do better as a city and we need to. we should be housing people. we should not people living in tent and cameras but the way of doing that is leading the city do their job at a time when they are investing in good staff. they are investing in funding supportive housing. we don't have enough shelter to meet the demands of proposition q in the city is already committed to the fact that they want to remove those tent and again it's good that is an opportunity for the city to see through what i think is a very cynical measure and hopefully address homelessness in an honest authentic weight rather than a politically. >> thank you, quentin and think you both for your common sense on. we hope this
