17 at 10:00 a.m. on tuesday, ma. i want to thank all of you and everyone who has been part of this great responsibility and privilege i have had to serve disbe ticket 6 offer the last 3 and a half years. the people of district 6. i will be the last supervisor elected to represent district 6 in the current form. i am very proud of the work that we have done together. i am proud and honored to have given the responsibility to represent a set of neighborhoods that experienced tremendous challenges during normal times. especially over the last few years during covid. i want to just really express my
gratitude to the people of district 6 for the opportunity and the work we were able to do toke. i know that the work that we started continues. whoever comes after me in district 6 will have tremendous responsibility and challenges to continue the work. i also want to im floryou colleagues to continue this work. i think one of my biggest concerns that i have expressed here and we worked on together has been the ways in which some of the challenges and problems we face can be concentrated or the burden to take those on can be disproportionally placed on some neighborhoods. as we think about equity for neighborhoods of district 6 we tip to give them resources they need for homelessness and housing to take that responsibility across the city. all of the work we do here did
not happen alone. i want to thank my staff, current and past. abbey, courtney, cyrus and monaco for tremendous service to the people of this district. to the clerk and the clerk's office and city departments for their partnership and support. all of you have, colleagues, for everything you have done and the work together. i have had the opportunity to learn from you, to partner on legislation, to watch you work and fight for your districts. even when we have not disagreed, i have been inspired by you. i am grateful for your service to the city. as i represent at the state level the issues we grappled with here, housing, homelessness, safety, transportation, climate change, equality requires leadership at
state level and someone who can champion these issues not only for the city residents but for all of you. this touches every district except district four. i also will represent and work on behalf of your constituents and my door is open to each and every one of you. very small sliver of district one. a few dozen voters, i think. i am not going anywhere. i am going to continue to work with and for all of you and there will be more to say about the next steps around that, but thank you so much to all of you for leadership. this was a difficult couple years. to see the way this chamber stepped up and supported residents during a time of
tremendous anxiety and fear and partnership with our mayor in doing that was a very proud moment for the city and certainly for me as representative of district 6. it is a late meeting. that is all i will say. thank you so much to each of you for the opportunity to serve with you. now, i will have the opportunity to work for you all and your constituents as our representative in sacramento. >> thank you. supervisor melgar. >> assembly member elect haney i have known you since 2008. i wish you the best as you take this next step in your career. you will now be representing a big chung of district 7. i look for war ward to seeing

job for us and i look forward to continuing to work with you and holding you account ability as your constituent. seriously, i wish you well and really have enjoyed working with you during this time on some pretty heavy things. juvenile justice reform, mental health reform and public health issues and criminal justice reform and housing. we worked on a lot of great things together. i know that work will continue. thank you. >> supervisor chan. >> thank you, president wall torn and as assembly member elect haney. congratulations on your win. i will say api community i

welcome than governor newsom earlier today. >> thank you. supervisor preston. >> quite a last meeting assembly member elect haney at 11:00 p.m. i want to congratulate you and wish you the best in sacramento. it is a pleasure serving with you. when i came on the board there were a hand full of supervisors i worked very closely with on big initiatives and you and i and some of the things that come to mind i want to thank you for your partnership and work in the pandemic around the zip hotel legislation that you took the lead on and that we worked so slowly on that is an integral part of the covid response.
the free muni pilot we sponsored and passed through the board. in your position as budget chair. thank you for being one of the supervisors on the ballot and partnering to fight for the $32 million for rent relief. the last thing and there are plenty of others. the last one i want to elevate is your strong support on public banking in san francisco. i think that is the time with the state work is important and assembly member chu led at the state level and the partnership between sacramento and san francisco city hall around the really difficult project ahead of us making public banking a reality and with supervisor
chan's leadership. i think it is something that we will continue working on together. also, if you think you are not going to get calls from the staff, i got to warn you. if the redistricting task force gerrymandering holds i will represent a lot of your current constituents in the tenderloin and so we will be putting our heads together to learn from a lot of your experience in the tenderloin to meet the needs of the neighborhood. i look forward to collaborating with you and wish you the best in your political and personal work as you move forward to the next chapter. >> supervisor stefani. >> thank you, president walton.
congratulations. i am going to miss sitting next to you. i know that a lot of times we were on the opposite side of issues. you have always just been so -- you are a class act to be able to understand we all come at things differently and never made me feel bad for my positions. never taken me out on twitter or done a sub tweet about me. i have learned about that now. i just want to thank you so much for having such agreeable way about you when it comes to having different opinion was. it means a lot. the whole time you have been kind. we were sitting next to each other and home during the pandemic a couple instances during roll call where i had a few things that were hard for me or with my dad and you were always there with the text message showing your kind mess.
that means so much to me. you have always cared like that. we have never had an argument. all of the opposite side. when you were budget chair you genuinely cared about my points of view. you came and checked in with my. my office worked with your office very well. it seems like you absolutely cared what i thought. that was reflected in the budget. if he didn't he is like one of the best actors. if he doesn't want to be a politician he can be an actor. you listened to our opinions. i can't thank you enough for that. i am really looking forward to working with you on things like gun violence prevention and i can't thank you enough for helping the violence victims. because of you we will have the
first right to civil council for domestic violence victims in the country in june. that would not have been possible if you didn't help get that on the violence. i will miss you and the relationship we had here. >> thank you, supervisor stefani. supervisor ronan. >> congratulations assembly elect haney. i really appreciated the first years when you came to city hall and we worked so closely together. whole offices were integrated as one closing down for the juvenile hall or mental health sf. those were good times. i will always remember and appreciate that. as you change and grow and
evolve or whatever you want to call it around housing. i want to remind you about the mission district and the fact that the philosophy of building more luxury housing. it doesn't work to keep genty tried neighborhoods. we wouldn't. [indiscernable] we wouldn't have access site. that the community organizing to buy the city could buy for 100% affordable housing and build thousands of units to bring working class folks back. just taking all power of local bodies like ours to act and protect those communities. i know you understand that. it is not simplistic messaging
point for political fire. it is deeper than that and complex. you know that. i want you to remember that. you care deeply about our communities especially genty tried communities. i want to remind you of that as you go to sacramento p sacramento and there is a big move to keep local governments like ours. best of luck. >> thank you, supervisor mar. >> thank you. it is great to campaign with you and also president walton into our roles a new supervisors by 2019. it is great working with you. on important issues. now as colleague and
particularly around supporting our workers and working families and workers rights. we worked with the budget committee and great leadership. we have had a lot of good conversations about geographic equity. points of data in the city housing and homelessness and public safety in district 6. it is a different district. we have been able to work together in district 4 move historic affordable housing development and project forward. we are going to need your support as assemblyman. district four is the only district that doesn't touch your district. we need you to look out for the entire city. i know you will do that.
thank you for your service. i look forward to working with you in your new role. >> i would just say this is bittersweet for me. i can't think of a time in my elected life where we haven't served in the same chamber. i just want to start off by congratulating you, my friend, on, one, a well run campaign and for the work that you put in for your constituents in district 6 which ultawith you to the statesembry as my representative. your approach to issues and the way you listen. if we agree or disagree, just the way you are still able to be disagreeable and yet maintain a certain level of respect for people you work with. i think that is something that is important. i love seeing that in you. i will refrain from funny
stories and behind-the-scenes stories. i do want to apologize to you for looking like your younger colleague. as i know you can't stand the fact that i am older by a tad bit but i look extremely younger than you do. this is the board of supervisors loss and the state assembly's gain. you will be missed in the chamber. of course, i thought you were going to want last words, supervisor haney. >> i want to thank you all for the kind words. i really do want to continue to work together. this is not in any way good-bye. it is definitely a motion to partner on the same issues in a different way and please do tell me what you need. tell meal what i can fight for
on your behalf, tell me what to do better, and i understand that is what my responsibility is going to be. i also because of my staff is always watching. i forgot to mention honey in my are remarks. i want to thank honey from my staff. i hope we hear her name soon if all goes well. i appreciate you also much. you will you have my full support in making sure we continue to represent them well. thank you all. thank you, president walton. >> thank you, supervisor haney. one last picture with supervisor haney to send him off.
something that is grounding. that is usually meditation. i have a gym set up in my garage, and that is usually breathing and movement and putting my mind towards something else. surfing is my absolute favorite thing to do. it is the most cleansing thing that i'm able to do. i live near the beach, so whenever i can get out, i do. unfortunately, surfing isn't a daily practice for me, but i've been able to get out weekly, and it's something that i've been incredibly grateful for. [♪♪♪] >> i started working for the city in 2005. at the time, my kids were
pretty young but i think had started school. i was offered a temporarily position as an analyst to work on some of the programs that were funded through homeland security. i ultimately spent almost five years at the health department coordinating emergency programs. it was something that i really enjoyed and turned out i was pretty good at. thinking about glass ceiling, some of that is really related to being a mother and self-supposed in some ways that i did not feel that i could allow myself to pursue responsibility; that i accepted treading water in my career when my kids were young. and as they got older, i felt more comfortable, i suppose, moving forward. in my career, i have been asked to step forward. i wish that i had earlier stepped forward myself, and i feel really strongly, like i am
100% the right person for this job. i cannot imagine a harder time to be in this role. i'm humbled and privileged but also very confident. so here at moscone center, this is the covid command center, or the c.c.c. here is what we calledun -- call unified command. this is where we have physically been since march, and then, in july, we developed this unified structure. so it's the department of emergency management, the department of public health, and our human services hughesing partners, so primarily the department of homelessness and supportive housing and human services agency. so it's sort of a three-headed command in which we are coordinating and operating everything related to covid response. and now, of course, in this
final phase, it's mass vaccination. the first year was before the pandemic was extremely busy. the fires, obviously, that both we were able to provide mutual support but also the impact of air quality. we had, in 2018, the worst air quality ten or 11 days here in the city. i'm sure you all remember it, and then, finally, the day the sun didn't come out in san francisco, which was in october. the orange skies, it felt apocalyptic, super scary for people. you know, all of those things, people depend on government to say what's happening. are we safe? what do i do? and that's a lot of what department of emergency management's role is. public service is truly that.
it is such an incredible and effective way that we can make change for the most vulnerable. i spend a lot of my day in problem solving mode, so there's a lot of conversations with people making connections, identifying gaps in resources or whatever it might be, and trying to adjust that. the pace of the pandemic has been nonstop for 11 months. it is unrelenting, long days, more than what we're used to, most of us. honestly, i'm not sure how we're getting through it. this is beyond what any of us ever expected to experience in our lifetime. what we discover is how strong we are, and really, the depth of our resilience, and i say that for every single city employee that has been working around the clock for the last 11 months, and i also speak
about myself. every day, i have to sort of have that moment of, like, okay, i'm really tired, i'm weary, but we've got to keep going. it is, i would say, the biggest challenge that i have had personally and professionally to be the best mom that i can be but also the best public certify chant in whatever role i'm in. i just wish that i, as my younger self, could have had someone tell me you can give it and to give a little more nudge. so indirectly, people have helped me because they have seen something in me that i did not see in myself. there's clear data that women have lost their jobs and their income because they had to take care of their safety nets. all of those things that we
depend on, schools and daycare and sharing, you know, being together with other kids isn't available. i've often thought oh, if my kids were younger, i couldn't do this job, but that's unacceptable. a person that's younger than me that has three children, we want them in leadership positions, so it shouldn't be limiting. women need to assume that they're more capable than they think they are. men will go for a job whether they're qualified or not. we tend to want to be 110% qualified before we tend to step forward. i think we need to be a little more brave, a little more exploratory in stepping up for positions. the other thing is, when given an opportunity, really think twice before you put in front of you the reasons why you should not take that leadership position.
we all need to step up so that we can show the person behind us that it's doable and so that we have the power to make the changes for other women that is going to make the possibility for their paths easier than ours. other women see me in it, and i hope that they see me, and they understand, like, if i can do it, they can do it because the higher you get, the more leadership you have, and power. the more power and leadership we have that we can put out.
