technology, we have really retrogressed as it relates to food. i believe that the industry will take note of this. i don't care how much they say it is san francisco, they are crazy, it is doesn't matter. they are going to take notice of this. there will be elected officials who will be taking action based upon to this legislation and they will step forward and say that they will take a stand. that is the biggest issue. i want to encourage these major stakeholders to act now. i don't want to wait for the first lady and some efforts that are being fought bitterly by the industry trying to hedge and limit what may happen, i think that we can take a bold move here and say, you know what, you

[speaking foreign language] ladies and gentlemen, thank you, got -- god. i have 12 newspapers that cash -- that shows that they're the world champions. how come they are the world champions? because the obama family supports us. george bush used to support texas and he took the team down with him.
2:53 pm
i would like to show you some of the newspapers that i have. one went away. they do that and they did whatever they can. mr. president, i'm going to be the first one asking face-to- face to make it now, a significant of honor to give the manager of the giants. i want to see you tomorrow with us to give this lovely team congratulations from all of us. mr. president, it is the time to prove yourself by sharing with us and sharing with the city. i am very glad to see dufty with his daughter sharing with us yesterday outside of city hall.

2:55 pm
reputation as the most egregious sunshine violator in the city of san francisco. last year, the day tonight free- speech so egregiously that this was given to that at this commission for enforcement. the ethics commission says "the conduct of the library commission falls below the standard of decency, good faith, right action and quietly required of all city officials. there was a time when this would have been considered an outrage, not just a violation of democracy but a violation of the social values of the community that allows us to survive. this is not an anomaly. this is all too typical of the library commission. you know very well the abuses that are unleashed when you allow private forces to raise private money with no accountability.
2:56 pm
you pretend you don't buy edu. the library has become a private income stream. privacy is what to the donors expect for their money. you are part of the rip-off. the at this commission will take up the violations for enforcement -- the ethics commission will take up the violations. anyone who cares about democracy and community values means to be there. also, the other part of democracy is voting. today is election day. i want your vote. in fact, voting is making sure that democracy survives, the allies cost more than them -- the lies cost more than the money. >> this is a willie mays card

2:58 pm
let's dance, let's shout, shake your body down to the ground. night and day, they will party this is the only way we are going to celebrate we are the champions and we will keep on fighting today we are the champions new -- no time for losers, we are the city world champions of the world' [applause]

>> hard to follow that. i am charlie walker. i am here to talk to about the problem on selected then the mission. these contractors and the human rights commission have created an atmosphere that these the contras come to san francisco and they only pay truckdrivers $65 an hour. that is for tractor and trailer. the truckers would like to go on strike after a meeting last week because of the human rights commission. these are all african-american truckers by and large. i have had this trouble over the years. something needs to be done
