6:09 pm
you're voting in favor to override the veto. a no vote is you are voting in opposition to the veto override, the ordinance would not be approved over the mayor's veto. this item has an a hold threshold. >> thank you so much. >> clerk: and mr. president, this ordinance would finally be passed with one reading. >> thank you, madam clerk. supervisor madam? >> thank you supervisor walton and colleagues, after working two years on this legislation, i was hoping that last week would be the last we would have to talk about this. and i was hoping you would think about that. the mayor had different ideas and so here we are. some have faulted me for describing this legislation as modest and incremental and the reality is, that it is. our response to california's housing crisis and mandates
6:10 pm
coming from sacramento will need to be bolder and go further. but i still believe that this legislation does important things and i want to express my deep gratitude to my colleagues who helped me get to the finish line or what we thought was the finish line. or allowing for us to try things that were aggressive and risked more speculation than people were comfortable with and i'm grateful that folks were willing through the legislative process get me a piece of legislation that i was proud of. as i have said, i did not support every amendment that this board made but that is the legislative process. and even with your amendments, this legislation does still does important pro housing, pro market rate housing things. first, it ends single family zoning in san francisco.
6:11 pm
rh1 goes away if this becomes law. rh1 stays if this does not pass. there has been some confusion on this point, i think and we can talk more about that in a minute. two, the legislation creates a path to small multi family apartments in san francisco in every neighborhood in san francisco that have not been allowed since the late 970s. 3, it allows for new units created the program to be hold as condos, that is important because one of the challenges with the adu is that property owners who choose to add an adu have no short-term prospect of recap touring the hundreds of thousands that they have spent to create the units. fourplex, this board's version of fourplex let's property owner sell the additional units. sd four the most important
6:12 pm
thing about this legislation for me, is that it shows that we, can actually advance important policy at city hall. i would have liked this legislation to go further and move faster. some of you feels that it goes too far too fast. but as a body we manage to tackle the challenge of fourplex and half zone halfway up the city. make no mistake, we have lots more to do. i have made clear that we need to do work on streamlining not just affordable units but market rate units that meet clear criteria set out in our zoning code. i have been clear that i believe we need to challenge, we need to tackle the challenge of demolition control and figure out what set of protections for tenants for vulnerable communities and neighborhood character, need to be written into our laws for us to be able to equitably build
6:13 pm
the more than 80,000 new units the state requires of us. but legislation like fourplex is important, incremental though it may be, in that it shows that we can do this and as a foundation that we can build on. in that context, mayor breed's veto does not make sense to me, except as politics. in her veto message she suggested that if the board could not pass a better fourplex bill we should rely on the state to get it done for us. in this case through sb9. now, sb9 may make sense for some suburban communities but sb9 ain't all that for san francisco. for one thing, and contrary to a lot of chatter, it does not end single family zoning. what it does is create a relatively tortured path to duplexes and lot splits for
6:14 pm
people who can meet its requirement excluding any developers from using it. two, it will also not create the housing that san francisco needs. of the 18 eligible application that have come into the san francisco planning department since january 14th, 14 have been for lot splits or duplexes, only four have been for a lot split and a duplex. streamlining single family homes, and duplexes is not the solution to our house hading crisis. not even close. streamlining monster homes is not my idea of good housing policy but in san francisco, that's exactly what sb9 could become if it becomes anything at all. three, sb9 is not good planning for san francisco. sb9 cancels our local open space environmental review and
6:15 pm
historic design review for new construction project and home expansions. but for what? for single family homes and duplexes, not for small apartments, not for large apartments, not again for the housing san francisco needs. that is why the mayor's own planning department and her own planning commissioners recommended the very provision of my fourplex legislation to which the mayor seems to take the greatest exception. i am puzzled, i am dismayed, i believe there are more than 8 votes at this board to do what supervisor pesquinn suggested we do. i resisted that proposal at the time because i thought we could do more and thought we should do more. i still think we should and i'll look for opportunities to allow small and condo buildings in all of san francisco
6:16 pm
neighborhoods. but i strongly resist the suggested embedded in the mayor's veto message that we should rely on the state to do this work for us. that friends, is add vokation to all of those future san franciscoians who need us to do a work of planning for sensor san francisco, now today here. if sb9 is any indication to rely on the state will look like, it will not be good and i don't imagine that the votes are going to change but i would love for us to be able to override this veto. thank you. >> thank you supervisor. supervisor milgaard. >> thank you, you actually took all of my technical talking points and i could not say it better so thank you very much for that precise overview. i would just like to add two more points. one there is a lot of
6:17 pm
misinformation about what this legislation does and does not do. one of the things that has been out there is that the planning department considered this not feasible. and that is just not true. folks are getting it mixed up with a couple of other legislation that the planning department analyzed. the other one is that it just will not be doable for folks. it will not produce any housing. our committee went through a lot of conversation and deliberations into what we eventually ended up with.
6:18 pm
when you access for construction and you have to pay it back, you're looking at a return for your investment. we very deliberately crafted this who are cash poor or who want to keep the assets in the family to sub divide to make sure that you know, extended families can live in the family compound to open up the possibilities for folks in our neighborhoods. that is not making it in feasible, that is cutting down on the speck la tory aspect that sometimes, you know, colors development in our city. do i wish that we could have gotten the perfect legislation? yes. but i think that this is a good proposal that is modest, yes. but it does make progress and i
6:19 pm
do not want to be put in a position as a board where our only option where we're polarized on issues if they go to the ballot to break the tie, that is expensive and it can have a lot of unintended consequences without the analysis of staff and all kinds of things that can happen. so i would, you know, respectfully beg my colleagues to over vieed this detail in support this legislation, thank you. >> thank you, president. as i said hats off to chair milgaard who did really good work bringing three pieces of legislation together and ultimately choosing the one that started out with the least
6:20 pm
barriers to entry. we did not go with versions that had higher levels of affordability. and the vas majority of the amendment that's were made, were made without any objection from the mayor or her staff. some of them actually as supervisor madam said, were made at the be hest of the mayor and her staff. it is the height of ludicrousy and when the staff that was hand selected by the mayor makes a recommendation that we adopt only to be vetoed by the mayor. that is nuts. that is exactly here is in her veto letter, relative to sb9. those were the amendmented that the committee adopted at the
6:21 pm
suggestion of the author who took that suggestion from the planning commission who in turn took that suggestion from the planning department staff run by the mayor's appointee. i've been here for a minute or two, and i've never seen political behavior like this. this is not about public policy, this is about raw politics and it's totally messed up and i be seige one or more of you, not to let this behavior run rampant at city hall. let's overturn this absurd veto. and when you veto something, tell the board that you're going to veto it and tell us why. are you dwg to veto because you don't like rent control? because the look back, that's the rumor in your street. be clear with this board. >> thank you supervisor pesquinn. supervisor mar. >> thank you, president and i
6:22 pm
want to express my strong disappointment that the mayor vetoed this legislation after the land use committee and really this board. deliberated for months and as others have said start withed three different fourplex proposal. my proposal was trying to ensure that the new housing that is being created through the density bonus is the housing that we need and that is the middle housing and family house hading. but i do appreciate all the many hours and months of hearings that happened around this in the land use committee. and this is a very important step for for us to take as a city to support small scale development in our low density neighborhood to help us meet our large goals. so and also to point out, that the last major density bonus
6:23 pm
legislation that the board adopted was home and had to go through many months or even two years of debate and required 2.0 amendments to be made. so again, and just one final point, i appreciate that the committee committee and adopted an amendments that i had suggested requiring an annual report on the number of units created and also the affordability of the units and also the equity impacts so that we can look at really what the legislation whether or not the legislation is really creating the housing that we need and want and if needed make amendments and do fourplex 2.0. i would urge my colleagues to support, support us on this and override the veto, thank you. >> thank you, supervisor mar.
6:24 pm
supervisor dorsee. >> thank you, i'm going to be voting to sustain the mayor's veto but i would like to commend the original proposal. and as i mentioned when we first came into this, i know, i'm coming into this debate late, still in good conscience i want to give credit to everyone who worked on this. and if there is some cause for optimism we seem to be on the same page. minds can disagreement and i don't think this is an incremental step in the right direction. i believe that they can up stale the development that we need in san francisco and i want to make sure that it has an opportunity to work by reviewing processes. we have to produes under our 8
6:25 pm
2000 units of housing in the next two years and failing to do this, risk the funding for housinging and loss of control and all of those nightmares will disproportionately affect my district. i agree with the legislation that even incrementally, i don't think this is taking us in the right direction and for that reason i'll vote to sustain the veto. >> thank you supervisor dosery. >> supervisor ahai. >> i appreciate moving this debate and this conversation forward. there are a few things for me that just didn't allow me to support this one of which is sb9.
6:26 pm
i think that going the way of many communities. you have to leave options on the table. there are people that are not going want to build. they want to build at a smaller scale. the other thing too and i want to be clear, this for me has nothing to do with rent control. in fact, my version got sent back, the version that we were talking about got sent back to the planning commission. we had the conversation of the planning commission. the other thing too i had this conversation with supervisor milgaard yesterday, having affordable measures whether it's in lieu or onsite. the analysis came back and
6:27 pm
showed it might work for some but it does not work across the board and we're not able to build on that scale. so i will be amending that out of that version. and i think that for me, one of the biggest impediments was the five-year holding period. although and this is just the truth, a lot of people are house rich and cash poor but because their cash poor, they will not be able to access the capitol, the resources actually even build on this scale. and you have to be able to let some of the market meet the demand that is out there and produce the production that we need to do to meet some of our long term goals. so i know, we have something coming up at 2:30, i'm not going to be able to support this today. but i do look forward to continuing the conversation and as supervisor marsaid, it took us two years to get home sef right, we still have time to
6:28 pm
get it right. thank you milgaard and marand others for all of your hard work and i look forward to continuing the conversation. >> thank you, i was not smiling at you, i was smiling at the young people entering the chamber. supervisor preston. >> thank you, president walton. i want to echo some of the comments that were made. i want to thank supervisor for their hard work on this and also our land use chair, milgaard for her work on this measure as well as the other ones and a lot of time inland use, getting this right. you know, i will just call this like i see it. this is, this is a very strange veto. i agree with supervisor pesquinn, it has nothing to do with housing whatsoever. and the fact that no explanation for the veto is really given as to whether it
6:29 pm
was the rent control provisions, the anti speculater. make it a little bit difficult to take seriously. what is the position of the mayor's, i would love to know? is it an object jebsing to rent control protection when we up zone? is that a policy position? that that the mayor's office is going to take? it's a strange position, we're not going to accept any kind of up zoning that does not allow landlord to impose any limited rent increases. is it that we're only going to allow up zoning if it results in incentivizing speculater to buy up neighborhood and demolish all the single family homes and displace all class residents. is that what the mayor's office was looking for? and i ask those questions with
6:30 pm
the knowledge. i don't think it would have made a dam bit of difference, there is no engagement from the mayor's office from land use committee or supervisors what they were looking for. what this is is, this is theater. that's what this is. this is thaoet o. the veto is designed to get forward. this is picking unnecessary fights with the board of supervisors rather than directly engaging in discussing constructive way. instead we get a destruction.
6:31 pm
talk about the ability and i think the resume, transparent candid about taking about it. and doesn't do, about the fact to have one. i think we also need. social housing some of the things that we all came together and i appreciate the collaboration with the mayor
6:32 pm
and the certification of the bigger steps that we can take. and the fact that we are here debating the veto of an incremental move from single family to fourplex on a lot is just, such a waste of time, i think, such so disrespectful of and his team and land use committee's time and for what? there is does it grab a headliner or two yes? it's, it's at best distraction. sxil say, i say this somebody who supported this legislation who this has no direct impact. i have no single family home zoning in my district. this has no direct impact in my district.
6:33 pm
i'll be supporting it again today. but looking at real solutions if the affordability crisis instead of. the >> some of the black community has been able to and owning the single family home and the fact that a good chunk of have been pushed out due to. this is a policy equitable that will guarantee, and we'll start , couple of conversations.
6:34 pm
this is a policy that will harm the districts. rather than speculate, we have a representative from the mayor's office. why don't we ask mr. pelino if he can respond to the question if we were to come back with some version of this, what would, draw another veto and what wouldn't? is it the look back vision? is it the rent control? is it the combination of the two? is it the sb9? is there any magic sauce that you want to share with us? or should we pass legislation and guess? >> mr. polino? >> thank you, for the question. supervisor passquinn.
6:35 pm
as far as any specific policies i don't have any on hand. but as the mayor says, she welcomes any opportunity to work with any to solve the housing crisis in the city. >> that was really response, are you going to send a smoke signal? how about a veto letter that says, apparently the mayor,; wants this but it's not good enough? so what portion of it isn't good enough? what thing should we change, because i mean we're going to get supervisor mant is going to bring his back and bring his back. i sit on land use. we'll see if there is objectionable or, i'm not clear of where.
6:36 pm
>> any response? >> as far as to answer your questions, i'm unable to right now as far as continuing the conversation. i'm certain that the supervisor will contain in other use and chair milgaard on this matter for sure. >> that's about as much engagement i've had over the many months that we've deliberated it and i'll say this for the record and i'm not trying to be provocative. i've been getting along with the mayor's office lately, this is embarrassing. >> thank you, supervisor pesquin, thank you madam clerk. >> clerk: item 13, shall the be over tuner. sdef knee no. walton no. supervisor chan. >> aye. chan aye. dor zee.

6:38 pm
>> today we have two special commondation. supervisor milgaard. >> thank you, president walton. today, i am thrilled to welcome the oropesa family to the chambers. on the occasion of their retirement. and to bring us decades of joyful memories. the board today will later vote on commendatory resolutions that i'm honored to present to them today. in 1963, ramon and his wife native of mexico began their journey in the great and diversity in san francisco where they raised 7 children, that all grew up to receive education here in our city and went on to earn higher degrees and trade education.

6:45 pm
experience, this partnership continues to give san franciscoians kids, the commitment necessary to experience competitive and fun youth baseball with unique opportunity of forming their own team, and its done at a price of affordable to all working families. i want to emphasize that, if you look at the travel baseball leagues or any of the travel sports, you're talking about thousands of dollars. and this was excessable to working families for less than $200, around $100 plus included the uniform and coaching and access to all of the things and i just want to over emphasize that that is something that is unique to san francisco and that's how we put our money where our mouth is when it comes to sports in the city. this summer, san francisco was able to return after a two-year hiatus given covid to all-star
6:46 pm
play fielding three teams. all competed in the coast region tournament in 2022 nor cal super region tournament. the city of san francisco is proud of all of our players and young people. bounded as friends and prepared for competition from all over northern california in the coastal region. they represented our city with great integrity, determination and love for the game of baseball. i would like to highlight the team for bringing the silver
6:47 pm
medal from the nor cal, they were one game away from going down to orange county. it was an amazing tournament, it was 103 degree. let me emphasize, we leaving our city and the difference in temperature was almost 50. they had to stop sometimes and take water breaks. and some families were like hey, if you can't take the heat, go back to san francisco. it was amazing for the families that came out. i want to recognize all the parents, it was a tremendous opportunity and a show of leadership for the younger teams. we have two of the teams here with their families and their coaches and managers.
6:48 pm
i'm going to read off smft names and ask the managers of 10 and 14u to come up after i'm done recognizing the names so say a few short words. we had manager, jeff please stand up and come here and be recognized. we had coach alex abo, i don't know if he's here today. >> can we save our applause because he's going to announce a lot of names. you coaches come up, so the players of 10u, we had dj, we had quinn, we had hay swanson, theo sink, we had lay hin thnd dress, pierce, wes saobo,
6:49 pm
isaiah sueda, ki, roomy safi, and bodi ferraro. thank you for your work and championship. all the players, please stand up. [applause] it's got to be my son. settle down. we had manager james burke, thanks jaim. come on up. we had coach and we had coach alejandro hernandez.
6:50 pm
so players were l & l, elliot beach, nicholas chew, robert and enriques, reggie fong, jerry hal, ewamewa, trevor, milo, outsideen slava. if u14 can stand up. [applause] and i want to particularly thank them, they came and gave a lot of encouragement to our u10 team when they were playing. we had an instant fan base and that gave them a good fan base and i want to thank them for
6:51 pm
being a good role models for the team. [applause] so if we can hear from manager, if you want to come up and say a few words and then we'll ask manager james to say a couple of words. >> well first, thank you supervisor and entire board of supervisors for taking time to honor our city's all-stars. is that okay? this is a group of young kids that showed to be champions on and off the field. as coaches it's our job to put you in a best position. in just about five weeks, you
6:52 pm
went from players to runners up in the super regional, really close to representing northern california. i want to bring attention to success of your true character. it's not how you respond to win rather than when you lose. and you were champions in that too. after a heart breaking loss to rockland you could have hung your heads and gone home. but you didn't do that, you did the opposite. you came back to win the next two games in 105 degree heat and went home for a little bit of sleep and beat the team we had just lost to. that gave us another team in the heat. at one point when it was clear that the end was clear, i gave you guys a challenge.
6:53 pm
and at that moment, our victory became not winning the baseball game but continuing to compete to not quit, to play six inings and that's what happened. and i'm so proud of you guys, not only for your victory on the baseball field but overcoming adversity throughout the tournament. you should be proud too. [applause] this was a magical ride that i'm happy to have done with you. for me, thank you for what we did on the field and supporting the team off the field as well. and to those who took an extra step in practice, you know who you are.
6:54 pm

7:17 pm
more, is really community stabilization. and it has allowed our neighborhoods to be the neighborhoods that we love. not only for their business but because of the beauty of the people that age in place and that are our neighbors and characters that otherwise, in many instances would have to be and story of san francisco rent control ordinance, dating back to 1979, has really been remarkably successful. and it is something that has been expanded even though powerful state wide real estate interest have done everything they can as we saw in the
7:18 pm
earlier items, to predem many local government. but san francisco has done it. the cost of talk. we have done it on accessory dwelling aoun, something that was able not because of the rent control but in those days over a decade and a half ago, interestingly enough the west side were opposed to it and aef side were but the matly was you brought back by none other than my former colleague scott wiener and has been championed by boards ever since. it was when the mart happened. maybe i should not be saying
7:19 pm
this. it was an ekted and supervisor milgaard's district. and in deed was a part of the ill faded handle ma*p measure that the mayor vetos that this board did not see fit to over side, a few minutes ago. but the truth is, i don't think that mayor vaoeted that because of rent control, rent control has been good for calf calf. and and i believe that this is something that we should do as a matter of and this charter amendment would do just that. it to say that whf the city of county by and through the board
7:20 pm
of supervisors grabs an up zoning or additional density that can be a waiver can allow chapter 37 of the add i have code to code. i. i want to thank cosponsors who did this early on. i want to thank my colleague on the rules committee. who and i want to thank supervisor ro that means that there are six members of this board of supervisors who are willing to put this item before the voters. this entire experience has been, very interesting and
7:21 pm
enlightening to see that thed support from housing heights committee and rene from the clinic, thought that this this brain child from my former lee was worth supporting. acknowledging that today's market rents in a city that has no vacancy control cannot have vacancy control are not inexpensive. but also in acknowledge that today's market rents, become tomorrow's affordable rents. and that's why it's a community stabilizer. it was also interesting to hear from the opponents. wasn't the apartment association, and i say that as an apartment owner, apartment
7:22 pm
owners can do just fine with rent control. they can make a reasonable return. it was interesting not just because it was opposed by the largest landlord on courtium, coalition for better housing and brooke turner and these are the largest landlords, trinity, they didn't oppose it. it was fascinating because the true colors of certain organizations appeared, the housing acting coalition, actually oppose an expansion of rent control, i find that to be fascinating. those neo conservative use were closely guarded until this came to committee and that's the way they see it.
7:23 pm
it's interesting to me, because the argument that rent stabilization will diminish the development of new housing, is a crock of bologna, why? because it's predicated on the initial market rents that are protected. predicated on the initial sale prices. not on rent stabilization and future increases in price. that is what construction financing is predicated on. and which way, those people who do this for a living, will tell you that that is true. they will also tell you that capitol is finicky.
7:24 pm
and to that end, we added a provision that would allow for a grace period, a phase ing period before rent control would apply. let me tell you why i'm going to take a motion to table it, and i'm going to make that motion based on a simple analysis of the following fact. the supporters of rent control don't have the hundreds of thousands of dollars that this campaign will need to go up against the millions and millions that will come in from you name t the state realtors,
7:25 pm
the developers, et cetera et cetera. nr so far, i say it's time for us to do that right now. to make that a policy of the board. to enact it where we can enact it. that is a threshold matter and i've talked to competing authorizes, they all agree on that. and then there are places wherewith we already give waivers where we can enact it right now. and let's do that.
7:26 pm
and there will come a day, are going to reach deep into their pockets and we'll have a source of funds, not to meet the massive millions of dollars that are going to come out out of the real estate but nef to get the message out and win it. so to that end, thank you very much to the cosponsors and supporters. thank you to the community that has fought to preserve and expand rent control. and i will be making a motion to table this matter for the time being. and thank you to my former staffer, hefner and many folks in the city attorney's office who we drove crazy to come up with something that would survive legal challenge.
7:27 pm
thank you to them as well and i make a motion to table item number 30. >> thank you. supervisor dorsey. >> thank you president walton and colleagues. i wrestled on how i was going to vote on this charter amendment while it was still pending. to the extend i was uncomfortable with the charter amendment it was largely because it was a charter amendment and logitic al problem when we need to fix laws that we take to voters. however, i do rent my colleagues support for rent control. sxwh furlt i share his view that in doing so, we're laying the groundwork. i'm a rentercious but more than
7:28 pm
that, as supervisor mentioned, i oppose rent control by agreement. i'm a resident of trinity place like park merced that's a high density development where the developers agreed back in 2007 to did he --designate units. during era, during that time, the rental market, i was in an apartment where the rent up 6 or 800. in san francisco, it's better than that. so that is why, as supervisor
7:29 pm
mentioned, peskin mentioned, we're working together to co-author legislation that would add rent stabilization as an ability option to home sf developments. for me this legislative approach solves for my larger control generally that we can endo or fix them while taking an important step forward. i'm grateful to my colleagues. when when we get back in september, thank you. >> thank you, supervisor dore see. >>ed thank you, i just wanted to thank supervisor, not just for being the most pro landlord i've ever met but to making the
7:30 pm
right decision to pull this off the ballot even though it hurts. and making sure that we're continuing. i have to add my personal story control is so important and has been so important in my life since the day i was born. i was born and brought home to a rent controlled unit in los angeles california where my parents, my mom because my dad recently passed, still lives in the rent controlled unit. sometimes i think how many times she's paid for that tiny apartment ten times over which sucks but my family never had the money to pay for a property.
7:31 pm
we were never homeless, we were never forced to move against our will. and i had a stable place to grow up my entire life. thank goodness for my mother's teacher pension, she was the bread winer, it was that teacher's pension from lausd and rent control unit that meant my parents had a place to live. with my father's social security check alone they would be on the street or with me, which would be hard in san francisco. i came from a working middle class upbringing and rent controlled has played a such an important stabilizing force in my life.
7:32 pm
so i wanted to give a personal space to what rent control means to many of us. and how important it is for this board to act. >> thank you supervisor ronen. >> thank you supervisor walton, i want to thank supervisor peskin for and his staff and former staff.
7:33 pm
and maybe elaborate on what stands in our way here? that has a certain appealing sound especially foeser those pushing for market house. new don't have the representative control there is no way that it's going to be the affordable house hading. so the real estate industry. but before that was the contra casta act.
7:34 pm
so we talked about trinity and part of us were part of the fight to threaten to go to the ballot to ban the demolition if that developer did not agree where they specifically agreed to rent control. there was no other way to force that. it was lost that one of the way standing in the way around the approach of development, is our inability to apply new control to new construction. so the state law, very profitable, industry costa hawkins, which precludes the city from applying rent control.
7:35 pm
is part of why they see the new construction. so i think what peskin was trying to do here and constantly done in adu is to try where ever we can to require rent control. on rent control. i hope we don't lose that advocates have been calling for years for the repeal of costa hopkins. and that will do more than anything else than not to have all of us focus on the little way to chip away and lay the groundwork for more unity in a real approach to development.
7:36 pm
i concur every opportunity, i share the concern that to the extent to veto was based on rent control that would be pretty alarming, hopefully we can get more clarity on the mayor for that. thank you very much. >> thank you supervisor preston. >> clerk: on the motion to table item 30, supervisor stefani, stefani aye, walton aye, supervisor chan, chan, aye. supervisor doresey, dorsey, aye, mannedleman, aye. supervisor mar, aye. mar aye. milgaard aye, peskin aye,
7:37 pm
supervisor preston, preston aye, ro anyone, ronen aye. and safai, aye. safai aye, 11 ayes. >> madam clerk, please call item number 31. charter amendment third draft to amend the charter of san francisco to establish the student success fund under which the department of children youth and their families will provide grant to the san francisco school district and schools in the district. to be held on election. >> thank you colleagues, very
7:38 pm
excited to be here. and to ask you to vote yes on the november ballot. almost every district if not every district where under 50% of the student in the school in the richest county of the world for values and innovation. it is this reality that is making people and i hope you don't mind speaking for mu, supervisor peskin but it's making people like supervisor
7:39 pm
peskin who famously or infamously depending on your perspective is against set aside that don't come with a source. he won't stand in the way for the status quo. we're excite today say that we have a charter amendment that is part of the answer to this longstanding problem. it is a measure that has the wide support of all the key sectors that work with schools, including broad coalition of parents, educators, sfud leadership, the department of children use and their family.
7:40 pm
i want to extend a very very thank you to my initial drafting partner, supervisor milgaard, to president walton and supervisor safai who helped improve the language and favorable agreement with sfiu, i want to thank supervisor preston for his steadfast support during the most difficult part of the legislative process, we would not be here today without all of you. thank you for your incredible unwaivering support. together we agreed that the charter amendment will make a real difference for children and their families by providing 60 million dollars a year when it's fully implemented in long term stable funding to our public schools.
7:41 pm
for two too long chronic under funding have failed our students. we know that there are many times of interventions that can be placed to reach the two goals. what we have been lacking is sufficient and stable and the keyword here is stable funding to put and keep these programs in place and in practice. we are finally in lock step with the district at about how to make sure we achieve success. we are working hand and hand to address the need of all students, every single one of our students.
7:42 pm
we are leaving no one behind. finally, i want to thank the original drafting committee that designed this ballot measure. maria sue, our ucsf president and secretary leslie hao, coordinator michele, full executive director vanessa morero, the community coordinator nick.
7:43 pm
and for holding us together, the can't thank you enough team. and last but not least i want to thank john for all of his support from the city attorney's office. i don't know about you but when i get a sign john i literally jump for my joy in my office. you're always right there, always working to get things done on time. thank you so much. i'm crossing my finger for unanimous support from the board and i really appreciate all the board. >> thank you ronen. supervisor milgaard. >> thank you, i just wanted to say thanks supervisor for your leadership on this and for taking this on with your usual tenacity.
7:44 pm
i appreciate you and your wonderful energy. earlier today, supervisor sahai, showed us the magic when young people learn and engaged with something. it is this kind of activity that this will support. whether it's sports or math tutor or arts. regardless of who can raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to make those things available.
7:45 pm
who have spent the last couple of years on zoom, not being able to participate in soccer or whatever it is that moves their imagination and their learning young developing minds. so i'm proud that we're doing this. san francisco had been at the more front of the movement and this is taking us so we can be that city that provides opportunity for all young people to be engaged and learn to recover from this pandemic and to be successful. i invite my colleagues to work so we can get it over the finish line in november. thank you.
7:46 pm
>> thank you, supervisor dorsey. >> thank you president. i want to be transparent, that over many years of working in this building. i also thank in general budgeting can be over scriptive and how dollars are spent in years. that's the skepticism that i bring. i'll tell you how this applies to this charter amendment. first, i was not only satisfied but impressed that this charter amendment thoughtful lea dressed scenarios that city could face. second i thought this was a crafted policy that was needed for policy and how dollars will be spent before community schools including the car mikele school in my district.
7:47 pm
and third i spoke with a number of activist including some who share my skepticism about charter amendments like this who were very complimentary. so i was prepared to vote, but i'll tell you if there was a moment that took me from being a supporter to enthusiastic supporter, it was two weeks ago, that supervisor ronen chairs. the department of children presented the 2022 needs assessment report. and i will tell you, it was sobering. we have a lot of work in san francisco to better support our public school students and fulfill the promise of community schools. so i agree that this is a priority that should be
7:48 pm
enshrined. i ask that i'm added as a cosponsor and i thank you supervisor ronen for her leadership together with all of my colleagues who worked on this policy. thank you. >> thank you supervisor dorsey. >> thank you, president walton. i think we're going to look back on this vote and remember the historic movement that we made sheer to be at the board of supervisors. i baunt to frame this, i played a small part in hefpg the they goeshing. i want to give these two women the credit that they deserve for leading this and being
7:49 pm
tenacious and not backing down. i want to reframe something, when we got on the board of supervisors, all of a sudden, our controller and our city realized that we were the beneficiaries, five other counties where we had what was access eraf funding. because of the money that we sent to sacramento, this was set up to avoid really having the chair in the full burden of education funding. supervisor walton knows that
7:50 pm
being a school board member intimately. so we find out that we have this additional money and formula for which this calculation has been done has not been adjusted ever in a really long time. so we fill that bucket and that bucket gets filled down with the city. and we say, we have money to spread around. that money has risen to over 350 million dollars. without that funding, we would be any crisis. and to be on record about making resolutions and stating the will of this body, we did that.
7:51 pm
we made a resolution, to put 50% of funding. we have not achieved that. so in my mind, this is not a budget set aside, it's the adjustment that needs to be made over decades. at the height, we'll be putting aside up to 60 million dollars. schools that can go raise a million dollars to fund mental health and fund educational support in math and literacy. all of the things in the enrichment.
7:52 pm
each school will be able to apply up to a million dollars that will be dramatic, that will be a game changer for the schools in the city that don't have access to those funds. and i over say this a lot and i'm going to say this again, guadalupe has less than 10,000 in their pta account, they could not finish a mural on their building because they didn't have the money. that have developed community schools but they're funded for a few years. and sometimes pulgt rug out is
7:53 pm
even worse because you raise hopes and expectations and raisin vestment and in the worse case as you've seen in some of the middle schools, i'm going to call them out, their support system was taken away overnight. we need to ensure that there would be? some basis in funding. this is a game changer folks.
7:54 pm
we are a tail of two cities. thank you for your tenacity. i know this will be 11-0 i know the voters will embrace this and we'll remember the day when we voted for the student success. thank you. >> thank you, safai. supervisor stefani. >> i too want to thank supervisor ronen for her work and i'm always skeptical for set a sides but for me this is a no-brainer. this is something that we must absolutely invest in.
7:55 pm
if we're not addressing what is happening with the next generation in terms of learning loss, mental health issues what are we doing here? as a mother of two children, i cannot even fan tem where we are right now in in terms of gun rights. my daughter has less rights than i did. our planet is on fire. if we're not sitting here asking ourselves what we can do for the next generation and the children that have suffered so much in our school district and during the pandemic, i have to ask myself what are we doing? sometimes it's our friends who can really push us to limits at the time i admire your tenacity.
7:56 pm
especially on our children. i want to add my name as a cosponsor, i cannot believe i'm not on there yet. thank you. >> thank you, president walton. i'll keep it short because everybody has talked about the reason why this is so important. i want to go on the roster to thank you for your leadership for your tenacity. and also for doing this, i don't know if you have slept in the last month or so but i hope in the recess you get an opportunity to rest.
7:57 pm
itching this is a huge step. i want to say that one of our schools was a md he will and really recognize some of the progress at john muir elementary. how things were piloted there. i think this is the best step forward for realizing our steps. very proud to be a cosponsor and i want to thank you for your tenacity and vision and leadership. thank you and the other
7:58 pm

sb5 19 is scheduled to be heard in committee on august third. that will decriminalize their possession to them. in in support of psychedelics decriminalization antigens. many countries and cities have done this already, this is not san francisco leading the way. i think we should join other jurisdictions including seattle, oakland, sant cruz, denver ar arbor michigan, washington dc and also the state of oregon have decriminalized some or all antigens.
8:50 pm
so portugal, brazil, jamaica other countries have done this as well. these plant base substances have proven benefits for depression, anxiety, ptsd, addiction, grief and end of life anxiety. there is an unmet need in san francisco communities for the compassion at and affective care that these medicinal plants can provide. currently it's a little unclear what the city's policies are. therefore individuals who cultivate and transport them for use in religious, spiritual, healing, or personal growth practices either for individual use or for shared
8:51 pm
use, with themselves and other practitioners, they're currently not protected from arrest and prosecution. sxwh folks are also not protect from arrest or prosecution when their cultivation becomes evident to police officer during an encounter for a reason other than the possession of these substances. decriminalization have wide support from users from health professionals, as i mentioned, there is immense healing potential that they have to offer. sdaoe criminalization has the potential to offer transparency for safe qualified and ethical psychedelic practitioners. historically, cannabis was championed in san francisco, by
8:52 pm
so many advocates dennis, mary jane, and also known as brownie marie and so many others that lead to the movement to legal lies cannabis in states across the nation. san francisco has developed a deep presence regarding education and tro if hesing al certification. the university of california, has created a multi disciplinary research center focused on psychedelics. ucsf brings together scientist and care providers to understand antigens and other related compounded and how they impact the brain and other organize nann systems. our city is also home to the
8:53 pm
california institute of integral studies. and offers program. i want to thank decriminal nature. and time on educating the office and working with us to put forward this resolution and just to name a few. jenny, carlos plasola, nicki summers, dr. general christian and as i mendsing a broad range of folks involved in decriminalization movement.
8:54 pm

8:55 pm
agrecious examples came into attention. they permitted a ten-unit building. the project began construction based on those approval and in two years later in 2019, we learned from the planning force enforcement team that 30 units were constructed illegally. from i can nothinger to changing the design and altering scare cases and fire egress, converting garages into other illegal uses and required exterior and open space into parking. but most urgently, the majority
8:56 pm
which are occupied to this day. this means dozens of families have been unknowingly living in these units with roundabout, protections imposed after the fact. which are still inadequate. only a fraction of the profit made. they do not increase the penalty so long the develop cer moving actively towards compliance. the problem is that there is no timeline so long as any symbolic gesture is made in an order to abate. this has dragged on for three years. the developers did this intentionally and with the act
8:57 pm
of complexity. violations will be treated as multiple violations to discourage we saw in the port la.
8:58 pm

10:19 pm
end up on the street or in a county far far away, that is absolutely at the doorstep at the california of public health. and cms and that is something that our state and national government and elected officials going right up to the biden administration can change. they need to stop these pore i believe things from happening to real life san franciscoians. we're trying to get too many care in a system that does not provide enough care.

10:33 pm
laguna is claimless. beener blameless, the most vulnerable people should not have to suffer. when there is a reasonable shortage of nursing home beds. and the best thing to do is for laguna honda to fix, its policy and its practice while the patients are there without transferring them and putting them at risk of desk. i really appreciate everyone's support, laguna honda to do. making calls to nursing homes to try to transfer people is not something that people
