their support. every one of our colleagues lended perspective to help make this deal better. thank you to katie tang who are here and eric mar. of course the three a ~ amigos, david and mark. we come from slightly different places but each of us like everyone here in the room, we wanted to make sure that thai 21st century health care system is created here in the city and this balances out what we need to make san francisco great. so, with that it's my honor to introduce the second of the three amigos, supervisor mark farrell. thank you for being here. (applause) >> thank you, david. it's really great to be here today. we are so fortunate as we come before you, signing legislation to build two brand-new hospitals here in the city of san francisco, to upgrade two other hospitals in our city, and that being the cpmc campuses at davies and

10:02 pm
way that makes sense for our neighborhoods. but in particular, in a way that we can deliver that health care into the next century for san francisco and really make sure that we continue to be at the forefront of health care delivery, not only here in our city, but across the country. we're extremely lucky in the city. we are the envy of other cities and states in our country. we add two new hospitals. we're product to be here today. i want to introduce one of my colleagues that played such an integral role in the process where one of the brand-new hospitals are going to be built square in his district. he was the biggest advocate for t. he needs to be congratulated for all of his work, supervisor david campos. (applause) >> thank you. thank you, santa ferv. thank you, mr. mayor, to you and your amazing staff, and ken rich who has done an incredible job navigating this complicated process. i don't want it repeat some of the things that have been said, but i do need to thank the
10:03 pm
people who have made this possible, beginning with the coalition that has included a very broad and diverse group of folks from the community, from labor. they have truly been the backbone of this effort. ~ supervisor farrell and they are the ones that deserve the largest credit for this history. i also want to thank cpmc and stutter. ~ sutter. it's been a difficult process. i'm very appreciative to dr. bronner, to mike cohill that you kept an open mind and that you were willing to sit at the table with the three amigos and lou girardo and the mayor's office. it was not an easy thing to do. let me say that for me this is a very personal thing because one of the things that will happen because of this deal is that we will have a new, larger, viable world class st. luke's hospital. it's a very personal thing. i talked about how, you know, my mom was rushed to the er at
10:04 pm
st. luke's, and, so, i know that this means a lot for so many different families. i also want to thank my colleagues on the board of supervisors and i want to thank supervisor wiener, supervisor tang, supervisor wiener for being here. they put a lot of trust in us and in this process. i know that they have their own issues and their own constituents. so it meant a great deal to me that you would put that kind of trust in us so it is greatly appreciated. and now it is my honor to introduce someone who, you know, one of the most rewarding things about this experience is that i had the opportunity to get to know one of the most remarkable people that i've had the opportunity to meet in government. there is something about bakers. my grandmother was a baker and she's one of the most amazing people that i have ever met. and lou girardo, i have yet to meet a finer individual, a finer public servant, someone
10:05 pm
who not only has the skills to mediate something like this, but who is brilliant, who has a great deal of integrity and, of above all, who has a big heart, a real hero of mine, lou girardo. (applause) >> thank you. thank you very much, david. i simply want to say that it was a privilege and an honor to have been asked and to have been able to serve in this capacity. i want to thank warren bronner and mike cohill for turning this into a transparent process and allowing all of us to be educated. they are both very good professors. i want to thank ken rich for the job he did for the mayor's office. ken kept us all alive and moving throughout the process and was the man who was better detailed than the rest of us. the three supervisors, i've said before and i'll say again, i've read about in the newspaper. i hadn't known them very well. i've not been involved in politics much in the last few years.
10:06 pm
and came in somewhat skeptical about who they were, what they were, and what they could achieve. but i would like to say that san francisco is very fortunate to have the 11 members of the board of supervisors that we have. they are all wonderful people. and i came away knowing that they believed in common good and that they were able to drop their political narcissism if they have such a thing, they de politicized and they put their ambitions aside to make this work. and at the same time, i think that the coalition of coalitions ~ needs a big thank you because they were a great educator as well. they kept us all informed as to what their issues were. but they weren't just giving us opinion, they were giving us fact. so,s we learned a lot from them as well. so, here's to san francisco. we're lucky we've got such a great government. we've got a wonderful mayor, a great board of supervisors and now we're going to have two wonderful hospitals to take care of everyone. so, thank you all very much for the opportunity. (applause)
10:07 pm

[ applause ] some people think the highlights were of van a white. i kind of thought it was jocelyn king in her hat. it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you now the president of the board of supervisors, david chiu. [ applause ]
10:20 pm
>> thank you, audrey, i'm sorry to have missed that 90s party. i wanted to come to say a brief few words to say what a wonderful job you are doing with city hall and work to go create a vibrant and safe nightlife. when i came to office in my first year there was a shooting that involved eight victims on van ness off polk street quarter. there was a horrible set of shootings that happened around club suede and fisherman's . that started some conversations that initiate neighborhoods and law enforcement on the nightlife
10:21 pm
and entertainment. because of some of the work that you have done here, we have moved some conversations politically in which we have much more collaboration, much more cooperation and much more creativity when it comes to brainstorming. i want to thank your office to help us enforce the rules and i want to thank those in this room as well as those in c mac that gave my office ideas to make sure our party planning world would make sure it's successful that folks that operate parking lots are also responsible partners. all of these could not come from the work that all of you are doing with our entertainment commission staff to make sure that we are working together and moving in the right direction to ensure that we have the most successful and the best an most exciting nightlife in the country. i'm
10:22 pm
really excited about the fact that within a few short months we are going to be kicking off the america's cup in my district and hopefully we'll have the most amazing parties to entertain millions of folks around the globe. as we proceed, we have to make sure that we are taking everyone's interest into account and i also want to say a thank you to those who have been working with my office to address the situation on broadway. just last week i introduced legislation supported by many folks in this room for the creation of a community benefits system along broadway hopefully for the first time again, bringing our nightlife operators and restaurant folks sitting with our neighborhood friends to ensure that we have
10:23 pm
a nightlife that is vibrant and healthy and what is second 5-9 economy stands for. i wanted to come and cheer you on and say thank you for that and i know my colleagues and i look forward to working with all of you for a great future. have a great afternoon. >> [ applause ] >> thank you, supervisor chiu. there has been some changes. our staff is on maternity leave. the person in her place is nag ar. we also have as you may know, i think he's disappeared. there he is. our inspector and sound technician. show your phase. of there you
10:24 pm
are in the back of the room. >> nicholas king is deputy director and instead we now have the fabulous, the wonderful miss cammy blackstone. c'mon up. so this year at this summit we've introduced something new and different for all of you to participate in. cammy is going to explain it and introduce it to you. >> all right we are trying to keep everybody engaged and involved. my new job is question queen. you may have gotten a yellow card when you came in. those are trivia question cards. i'm going to ask a trivia of questions. it's not a pop quiz. as we go through answers you can win prices. the first question, out of all the places that sell
10:25 pm
draft beer in san francisco. the number one seller is at&t park. who comes in at no. 2. don't shout it out. at the episode -- end of the program you can win prices. okay. we are doing trivia questions all through the program. okay. i would like to now bring to the stage supervisor scott wiener. [ applause ] >> good afternoon, everyone. thanks for having me today. i'm glad we are able to do these summits and bring everyone together to discuss our best practices and really embrace and move forward this critical part of our city. one of the first things i did when i took office in 2011 was to request our city economist to do an
10:26 pm
impact study on nightlife and shows how it contributes $2.4 billion to our economy. and we at city hall making policy to treat nightlife as a nuisance to be managed and the purpose of that study among other thing was to make clear this is an important economic benefit and for jobs and for so many other economic purposes and something that should not bow -- be treated at all as a nuisance but something to key and address. it's not just an economic and strong driver in our city, it's really part of the cultural part of our city. and i will be honest that i have some concerns about where we are going in terms of our
10:27 pm
approach towards nightlife and what it means for the cultural essence of this city. we are seeing nightlife more and more under pressure for a variety of reasons and city hall in my view and my city government still takes an over reactive view towards nightlife instead of a more balanced view. we know historically what it's meant for our community for young people, four music lovers, for people in the lgbt community. we are at a crossroads and we have to make a choice whether we want to be a city that continues to attract young people here, whether we want to be a city that wants to continue to attract the creative class here, creative whether they are
10:28 pm
raiders or tech folks. the reason why so many people come is because we have those cultural resources including nightlife. if we continue on the path where we are which is to put continuing pressure on that and making it more harder and more complicated and more expensive for anyone to offer nightlife to our city, we are going to suffer in the long run and we'll become a beautiful and very quiet city and very peaceful for everyone but it won't be the interesting place that it is today. on the san francisco political spectrum of either liberal or more liberal or really liberal on one of those scales, by the san francisco standards i'm probably considered a fairly law & order kind of guy. i'm probably not by natural
10:29 pm
standards but by city standards. i think when it comes to nightlife, we view it too much from a law enforcement perspective. although law enforcement is a critical stakeholder in nightlife policy, i think law enforcement is playing too dominant a role and anytime we are doing anything the first question is about law enforcement. as opposed to law enforcement plus these other four things. i think we need to take a much more balanced approach in that respect. we also need to empower our entered at -- entertainment commission to do it's job and i will hear the board tomorrow to extend live performance to dj's and creating more outdoor music
10:30 pm
and granting and effectively manage issues when they come up and by having a more effective entertainment commission which has made great strides, we are going to be that much the better for it. i look forward to working with everyone and again thank you for having me today. [ applause ] >> thank you, supervisor wiener. well, it's that time again, where are you, cammy? by the way, audrey joseph, everyone. we just heard from two of our board of supervisors. as you
