manufacturing company in oakland last week to expose them to what it looks like to work with the manufacturing sector right now how can we go ahead exist and see that right now these are jobs that involve technology their creativity and can build things with their hand and how can we can build the gives me economy we're talking about. >> thank you, kate great to be here and real estate on amazing site with mayor ed lee and supervisor cowen really their leadership in making this happen i know there are big plans ahead but in the meanwhile great place to hang and meet and offers a low cost option for the manufactured working with free air conditioning we had a strong position manufacturing stand today and really around initiative products a century ago it was
10:25 am
around food and sfo's invented the ego waffle if you didn't think san jose was cool but ask your kids we are, of course, much more focused on vance manufacturing we'll hear from companies like western residual around the haven't technologies they're doing a lot of prototypes and eventual at some point that process will be offshore we know that a significant amount can be made here and benefit enormously from obviously all that is happening in the valley 5 thousand people in the city of san jose that are engaged in manufacturing today and a great
10:26 am
resource of highway jobs out on the average and a great pathway for middle-income so we'll bullish on our tech great and a pleasure to be up here and mayor ed lee that looks like the beginning of every one of my sons video games it is existing i'm waiting for the killer to come out of one of the walls keeping an eye on on this i think the thing that makes me proud of our fremont with the manufacturing road is not where we are right now but where we were a few years ago just a few years ago 4 seven hundred people lost their jobs businesses closed their doors it is growing and producing those autos you may have heard of testing last and 6 thousand people working in that manufacturing this shows
10:27 am
where the manufacturing is strong. >> (clapping.) >> my friend daniel from tesla we're very proud is to be the home of tesla those numbers make that the largest manufacturers in the state of california but not just that the companies that are around that exciting into the tesla phenomena we have golden gate you've met them this is the companies that are feeding into the tesla and produce the jobs of future talked about numbers in fremont one out of every four jobs in fremont is connected to manufacturing this is huge that is good paying and middle-class jobs income grow we're excited about one of the things that makes us unique is that that ability to grow we done a pretty
10:28 am
good job of preserving going forward pressure on that i know my colleagues did the same one of the things going forward we cherish and have that room to grow to make sure you can solve tomorrow problems with stricken out ways to so jobs. >> great to follow bill i was told in i came here each of us mayors and x mayors will get a tesla (laughter) daniel has the max ma kate thank you for being part of this i want to add my thanks to the sponsors that are here putting this together and acknowledge supervisor malia cowen is malia still here all right. >> (clapping.) >> how. >> now she's the mayor of district 10 i can say that has a
10:29 am
second term mayor change the title i want to say thank you to every single mayor this is the first time we've literally broken bread together. >> but anyway, and for good reason when i been these mayors i think about urban savings account i will say that we're all going both struggling and vanls the cities when it comes to job creation and manufacturing in particular i think we're not building citizens and villages it is job creation it is about people and i look around this room we've got the people in finance, city, foundations that are trying to help us with our vision and you've got people who are trying out things and companies that are but making
10:30 am
things as the maker movement but to put them in the context of more than manufacturing how to support each other and more and more us mayors in the entire bay area will be working closely together we have to understand the skies of supply change of manufacturing not do everything in one city anymore but require a bay area approach what we recognize i can't manufacturer cars i have no room unless a really, really small car. (laughter) but we're going to be proud of our breweries and our chocolates and proud of our tie i'm wearing in particular because blue is mustered and designed and made here in san francisco and we could be selling products as i
10:31 am
said in the video that the people around the world would love to have when we put our city label that are on things made here an international constituency i think some of the other brands out find europe 19 are meeting their course and people buy something here that has san francisco made label on it they'll feel proud of that is high quality whether the fashion industry that we are trying to resurrect we used to have a lot of fashion here it didn't disappear but gone on hiatus we're doing not mass manufacturing but designs with fashion like the accessories movement sincerely erratics and world-class stuff made very we have over 6 hundred
10:32 am
manufacturing companies in san francisco they're looking for the talent that can coming out come out not net of the university but talent from the college and city college where we're making tremendous invests of people that don't have to have 4 year degrees job creation is about a village coming together to make sure it happens land use issues we have to deal with we're going to go into more detail >> that's a great cigarette way at the end of the day my whole staff and most of my partners thinking about manufacturers are the opportunity for people it really comes down to the people the people that work in those companies it is the possibility of shared ownership and diverse ownership of those companies one of my farther i love sharing when i travel east for the belt
10:33 am
where i'm from more than 50 percent of the manufactured in san francisco are owned by women and i think outside the box as a bellwether. >> (clapping.) >> that's a well weather inform what we're capable of in the bay area one program i heard about i'm excited to learn more as we talk about sharing mayor is the san francisco works one of the real opportunity and challenges in the data we collected ask that we both struggle with legacy manufacturers whether environment or food having amazing workforce and not net the next generation coming up behind them and manufacturing with a skill so tells you more about what you guys are trying to do to address that. >> actually certainly i think we recognize the economic issue how we address the growing gap
10:34 am
between rich and poor not more acute with the cost of living here in san francisco for the opportunities to provide a path with jobs and manufacturing we launched an effort with la jolla partners and with the future being a key participate and, of course, your manufactured our employers and seeing how we can focus on both retraining adults and getting to our - for them not cool to be a manufacturer and we need to demonstrate to them there are great opportunities and great careers not just about amy there is cool stuff out there and so far we've had great success like some have participated in hiring over the summer and ultimately offering some of the young adults permanent jobs that is great for them for the future work program
10:35 am
one hundred folks trained and employed in advanced manufacturing and really know that requires great and greater skills not the manufacturing line they need to have advanced skills around understanding computer and using advanced technologies and their skills are demanded at the assembly level so we wanted to partner with a community private sector to get folks on the assembly line or folks into the assembly line the skills for the advanced manufacturers there is significant growth one of the things we also learned even if we talk about the work of assembly line it is different than it used to be and working on an assembly line is working with 20 people not necessarily 2 hundred people one thing that is similar across the city a broad range for the two
10:36 am
and three person shop and old oakland is a better example of having that in the same city i know that you have done and personally as the leadership in kind of external lists the food manufacturing and connect it back to the community as we think about how to make it easier for folks to understand what's that journey been like. >> in oakland the food and beverages industry has allowed us to what i think we all need to do is make this an enticing field for everyone to understand how different the industry is now so we've used it as a creativity marking tool to fill the notch around the food and beverages in oakland and created a food trail along the waterfront to have a mc-2 over 50 sites that people can come and ride their bikes -
10:37 am
>> how many people have done that. >> by the next time next year. >> we're on it. >> (laughter). >> you can bike along the food trail 50 sites and see food and visit our urban wineries a trail as well and it allows us to market oakland in this very specialized way and also talk about what a restauranteur industry we have in oakland been a creative way i think to talk about the manufacturing sector in a different way. >> this whole initiate wouldn't have been possible self-we hadn't had the blessing of our own mayor sfmade is progressively in san francisco and a leader that hadn't only spider us but gourjd us to see what we can do collectively
10:38 am
across the region why would you do that (laughter). >> first of all, i grew up in a family were any mom was a seamstresses used to someone as a head of the 40ur8d making things seeing the delight in her eyes she used to do sky jackets with the do you think she was proud of stitch if you got the right stitches that don't cough the details like that effect our whole life i paid attention to a lot of the details because you train hand to use coordination with the speed and when they're sold their seed well, you take pride in the brand that's what the workforce in the manufacturing industry feel they feel they own the product where
10:39 am
it is sold and resold they get this product so a personal aspect of that kind of drove me to pay attention particularly when it came to fashioned so many other things are happen that cause our space to be reused in a productive way when you think of obesity when you think that i know restaurant - they're doing skateboards now the overlay of technology cat boards are not made with just a material but an overlay of electronics like at circa in the film you look at that assembly line and the neat part of it they have new types of machineryy that guide provision of cutting, that provision helps because when you have a whole
10:40 am
piece of laefrp and you're making a belt there is a lot of center unused leather with the machinery they can position that belt design into the leather to get twice as much out of one piece an overlay computerized accuracy of that belt so switching 19 stitching it is still part of manufacturing of that apparel but overlayed by great level of technology that helps with quality with the design, with the environment for the use of those materials there are incredible tributes of state of mind we have to wrap up i'd like to hang out but how often do we get four cities together it is looking at we need to
10:41 am
connect each other capabilities together we have garment manufactured in oakland and san francisco but not the electronics manufacturing and scale for example, you might have in san jose that's one opportunity so the workforce which resides all over the bay area and we are excited about the bart station in fremont i think is one of the countries first transit oriented industrial elephant taking the development to a whole new level and, yes we can clap for that. >> (clapping.) >> so let me ask in conclusion, this may be one the harder requests of the recognized people in 3 words - >> not possible. >> each something that you would most be existed about as we looked at a few years together.
10:42 am
>> in manufacturing. >> 3 words mr. mayor. >> build be talent, pipeline. >> internet of things. >> (laughter). >> wow. it's about the young people for me >> support support more people. >> thank you good morning
10:43 am
my name is allen i'm the competitive for the probation department honor and privilege to welcome you to the jungle hall that facility was opened in 2007 we moved from an 88 bed worn down delipidated facility to this one and 50 bed facility we occupy at a point the city and county struggled with overcrowding in the facility by april of 2008 the newly opted out facility exceeded the one and 50 bid capacity that same year the average daily population in juvenile hall was one and 23 we knew we could do better and the interventions were more effective than keeping kids it custody as a result the
10:44 am
city embarked on a aggressive journey for the program see to serve as alternates to santa fe tension at the same time our juvenile justice shareholders 1r69d in collaborative partnership and strategic focus on the needs of youth and the families we serve depiction programs and evening reporting centers and electronic referrals to community agencies all coupled with evidence based supervision resulted in the drama reduction in the number of youths referred to the juvenile system and those detained in juvenile hall last year our average daily population in juvenile halting hall was 56 now 45 youths in the facility and half of the units are unoccupied with the sequence reduce to
10:45 am
all-time lows we want to repurpose the facility to address the root causes that bring youth into the jewel just system among them the many adverse childhood experiences that shaped their values and dudes and beliefs and circumstances ultimately market-rateism in criminal conduct in the community the merit center the first of those initiative opportunity we're excited to showcase today if we provide our youth with the matter of fact and support to change their barf and teach them the skills to steady in school at home and in the workplace we won't see them reenter the center and recuse recidivism further this merit center within jewel hall provides the youth with recreational opportunities
10:46 am
to which we earn access by their completion of school work, active participation in unit programs and positive social conduct with peers and adults we like to thank the unified school district the department of health the public library our jewel probation commission the bus project sunset youth services city youth now and all the stakeholder persons for their generous support of the new center i also want to especially acknowledge director louis and the staff of the jewel hall for their hard work to open the center in addition to mayor lee's remarks this morning you'll hear from judge supervisor judge of the superficial and mr. joe president of the jewel probation and following the remarks of
10:47 am
speakers we'll show one of the vacate unit before we procedure down the hall to the marries center for a ribbon cutting ceremony i'm pleased and hoirnd to introduce the may mayor of that great city wholesale ununderstanding work shaped the program and encouraged our creative ideas to further expand our services without further delay the honorable mayor ed lee please. >> (clapping.) >> thank you allen for that introduction your hour and commissioner and thank you to the staff you know, i guess my first impression we come a long ways it used to be certainly
10:48 am
when i came to the city it was all about confinement and isolation over many years and now as allen counterfeited the part and parcel we've had to create we really understand how much of a vinyl we had to create you know that goes back to the saying takes a village it takes a village to change kind of the behavioral in the way we feel proud of each other and more so than any other period of time that is when investing in our kids rather than the old-fashioned punishment and hopefully, they'll learn punishment confinement, isolation, have never been great teachers of changing that barf it is the village of support the
10:49 am
merit stwrm, the attempt to identify what motivates the human barf in a different way to reimagine this center our juvenile justice center no longer do you are refer to as a jewel detention but the jewel center but more importantly to have the money for people that are concerned about the change of barf and what cased people to come here to suggest we can have the best minds and practices right here to help people and motivate them into a different direction that works it is not just that we have less youth although i think that is as an incredibly piece of data but also how we measure how people are changing less violation a greater
10:50 am
collaboration, and i also will never forgot the father and mother fact we have great partnerships leak hustling berry youth in the community to you make sure we are doing our best we can't just put it on folks he on detention facilities and put if on programs we have to intervene and understand the circumstances symptom their historic and sometimes years of abuse sometimes their reflection of what we can do to reinforce you are care for many of the youth that may come from very, very deft backgrounds i'm sure the commission understands going case by case sometimes pain staing to understand what families are going through and lack of a family is a truer circumstance we learn from each
10:51 am
other not to be solely don't think but a holistic approach to what we want to have happen and as a result and then hold ourselves accountable we need our young people belief they're in a society to be more successful and get them out of the danger and harming themselves and each other they get into a system where that barf can be reinforced for what we want to see happen that takes a lot of effort by a lot of people at different stages of people's lives judicial based obviously enforced by our jewel law enforcement that joins this i come not to only cut a ribbon
10:52 am
but reflective on a better understanding of the city what it takes to change people's lives for the better and reinforce is a structure that perhaps if we had properly invested in many of the parts of society we might be better off we didn't we allowed lots of families to get to poverty holes in the city i'm trying to do in other areas rebuilding public housing and commissioner norton we know is evidence of violation getting kids jobs and careers giving a path forward and helping families reunite and helping the kids off the streets and into a better situation are part of elements of a great city but today, we focus on what happens here when the kids are brought here and how we can not
10:53 am
just use confinement and punishment and isolationism and think that will help but that we actually use the best of your yadz and try to motivate people to a better direction and give life reinforcing skill sets to invest in themselves at the same time i want to applaud all the elements we put together into the staff at allen leads and i know a lot of you know we always give credit but allen you're the leader i appreciate the work with staff you kept me informed and any staff informed i want to say thank you to the commission that hears those cases appeal and otherwise and some of the horrible stories of the people and the judicial
10:54 am
system more and more it is not about just dismissing citations not but how we use the ability to capture someone's attention but not capture them physically but give them an opportunity to move forward we believe in san francisco and in the values that we uphold it gets tested here we have less but also upon release people getting back to their families and communities and places where we want to be and having that reinforced in our onion communicated society we have back up programs so that what has learned can't think unlearned that's positive replacement this is what happens at the juvenile justice center i'm happy it on up not merit
10:55 am
based program that can work but that we're also not foolish enough to think - i have to fund the people and keep them motivates because people that do this day to day a base have a reason tobacco depressed you see that over and over and over again, that's is life and in a great city of san francisco we motivate everyone to a higher level to make sure that the positive things we do truly want to believe this city is for and we can be a beacon to many other areas of our country perhaps that have not learned what that is to motivate people have is learn and until that we'll teach anothers this is what this merit system will allow us to learn
10:56 am
from it and do better and the best example is kids and the quality of life 31 they will lead and be part of a great society so all of i want to say thank you very much for your intervention, your participation, your leadership and reminding me as the mayor and the board that we have obligations well beyond the budget, well beyond the immediate things that come before us we have to be holistic to what happens 2509 skids and families congratulation and allen to the entire staff for creating and now we get to sustain a great example thank you. >> (clapping.) >> good morning. my name is joe joe the supervisor judge of the family court an honor to be here
10:57 am

10:58 am
compassion i want to thank everyone and mayor for your support ♪ cleaver and keep any remarks under a minute there we go thank you >> (clapping.) >> thank you. i won't take long either i want to first time start off by threatening mayor ed lee and chief and the others folks we've its been a long time coming i was a member of the city family when we had you know over one hundred youths in the facility and thanks to the contribution over the years through the budget process by the mayor and the board of supervisors consistently funding the department making sure it has the resources here we go i want to put this in perspective a city of nine hundred thousand with 45 facilities is striking
10:59 am
and as you know, representing the commission i want to say that we don't want to rest on that laurels those 4 are here we need to address do root causes why they're herethorax he applaud the department for thinking outside the box thinking of ways to connect with the youth whether taking them sailing or camp mather bringing in folks for expression of poetry and things we're trying to do to correct connect the youth so they don't ends up here again and those thefdz of thinking outside the box are helpful as we you know move forward today with the ribbon cutting of merit center the commission strongly supports the efforts of the department and will doing everything we can to make sure that we continue to drive down
11:00 am
