seeing none, public comment is closed. i - there's lots of applicants here and lots of seats for the 3 boards. and in anticipation of all those candidates and seats i wanted to see if we can move those items quickly. i looked at the seats and individual. i know at least for the people i've met and the people who have come to speak i feel their qualified people. so for the person the one person that we try to make contact with and there was no response we'll not support her at this point for any of the seats not knowing
appeal board staff. it helps us to move the process along quicker. you'll all bag logged and need such a help as possible. i was wonder is this someone you've be able to rely on. and help you to get the job done and that this person is reliable >> yes. mr. collin is reliable. we've not had any problems as far as not appearing awhile he's scheduled. he's ggd at lettuce know he's made himself available as needed
when we can at last minute notice to cover for other members >> i only ask because i was concerned the fact he doesn't remember how long he's been on the committee. those are really on paper he looks great presentation wise he looks great but that was an alarm for me only because i know the details of with the board. so i want to make sure we have the kind of recommendations from the staff of those who either served on the committee or have a deserve to serve on the committee and are able to understand and make good decisions >> yes. he worked well, with the other board members.
as i've mentioned there's no attendance issue. he's great with the documents we need on a timely basis >> and mr. chair before you make our other recommendations i do think we should move to reappoint the two members that were here today to they're specific seats. >> i'll do that. >> i'll let you do that. >> thank you for that question. and if i didn't do it right just correct me. so here's how you would like to move this item. we're to have jean to seat one -
youssef to seat 3 and if it's possible to have angela to be seated for number 4. i don't know what the procure is for that. she in her application mentioned 6, 7 and 8 >> the city attorney can appoint her to any item so seat 4. >> it's a permanent seat rather than an alternative. so that's my recommendation. anybody wants to make comments about that >> second. with no objection
let me catch up with my notes. colleague as a sponsor of this resolution i wanted to say a few words. i've made that one of my main focuses and wanted to work with interested parties in my district with rec and park department. and i believe in the inclusive district want to expand the list for this board. so this is the purchase of this resolution. colleagues, i hope you'll support this today. let's see. and as a this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. . any questions or concerns?
supervisor breed >> i wanted to make sure i was clear on the purchase of the resolution. so based on proposition c one of the requirements in proportion c was to put together this - those particular spelled out groups on the open space advisory committee there's a lot. you know, i guess i'm just wondering how is anything going to get done those are organized groups in various capacity so i'm trying to understand with so many groups requiring involvement on the open space advisory committee how is anything effectively going to
get done >> so the membership itself the purchase of this is to not necessarily have more members. this is - this legislation was done a long time ago so different members have been involved with those issues. so you want to make sure there's an opportunity for people involved in those organizations have a possibility to be on proz prozac. what did you mean? >> i'm confused sorry. >> jump in. >> proposition c required the city to create the commission and after the ballot measure passes the board adopted an ordinance this created an
membership. it's slipping my mind how many members are a certain amount which them are appoint by the board. they created the committee the rec and park has to nominate the members. and the administration code requires the rec and park commission to occasionally up to date the list >> thank you. so if it's helpful i could name some of them >> i totally understand it was confusing and implies we're adding membership. and with that i'm happy to move
the items >> i believe that supervisor yee you have some amendments we've been working on with the city clerk's office. >> there's a few minutes i believe i have them and you don't. sorry about that >> thank you. >> this would be helpful. and nothing i think its mostly language to clarify what the purpose of thisries what it's about. >> would you like us to adopt the amended. i'm happy to move forward with the amended resolution. >> thank you before we do that is there any public comment on
the amendments. seeing none, public comment is closed there's a motion >> to amend the current motion to exclude our updated version for us and a without objection that motion passes. so we're >> time to finish up. >> there's two more items one for closz closed session and one for item 7. and i don't know if item no. 7 is ready if not we can do the closed session and if no one is out there after closed session we might continue the item >> mr. chair. >> yes.
>> i know the goal is to wait for supervisor campos to present by out of respect of the folks here i want to hear from them so we don't have them waiting any longer. >> after we hear from them we can continue the item. let's go back to item 7 just to see if the speakers are here and - >> consider appointing two members for the airport there are 4 seats and 4 applicants. >> alice. >> average supervisors alex
walker. thank you for having me here >> i currently work as a consultant pouring for nonprofit and political nonprofit and political fundraising. i work with san francisco beautiful and phil king. i'm the vice president political alternative pack chair of the harvey milk club. i worked with catching possess on the campaign and whatever this committee was created i want to take the opportunity. i have appreciated all the

why i want to be part of this important committee. i was a state of sub u public policy and i believe it's important that citizens step up when they can add value and i hope as a past city commissioner can provide value to this committee. i want to use what i leonard in the airport committee to help inform the group. secondly as a gay latino harvey milk's has been a hero not only to the lgbt community but ass an inspiration to all folks. there's a special interest i know we all have in understanding the way to honor
the past specify. and as a former airport employee at the sf 0 you can't have a great city without a great airport. we have a great city that what protect the reputation but to enhance our cities standing and a recognition as a leader internationally when it comes to human rights if you have any questions, i'll be happy to answer them >> any questions? seeing none. thank you very much. next speaker >> hello supervisors and good afternoon. i'm maggie. thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to present to
you this afternoon in consideration of having me on this committee. i'm you currently an employee i work in the film office. any time folks come to town to get permits thaim i'm their person. i'm enrolled here in class and people are always talking about you in class. i worked in the mayor's office as a schedule and worked in the outreach program. i did environmental outreach throughout san francisco in our diverse community. prior to working in the film office i volunteered for the harvey milk foundation. i was a lead so i've put on some events in san francisco including our candle light
project. i worked with lgbt organizations in san francisco and their leaders in the discussion of renaming san francisco airport. i feel passionate my mom what harvey milk's campaign manager and legislative aid over 35 years. i want to help contribute towards bringing about some awareness of harvey's legacy. i know that still his message is not clear and there's 77 countries globally that still prosecutor people for being gay. not only that but i realize that are many diverse communities
here in san francisco not only in renaming the terminal harvey but in renaming other terminals >> any questions? seeing none. next speaker >> good afternoon supervisors. thank you for inviting me and giving me the opportunity to be on this committee. i'm gay, of course. so in that sense harvey is a figure that's really loomed large in my thinking about san francisco history and the civil rights. i'm excited about this up to this point. one of my family ties goes back to my grandmother with the
golden gate bridge. i travel a lot for work i'm an engineer so i'm in and out of the san francisco airport and in those other airports that are named after historical figures. i followed supervisor campos original legislation with a bit of excitement and i'm glad we have the opportunity to name other features of the terminals after harvey milk's. on a personal note a friend i met in japan was excited that he wrote me a letter he lives in a closet.
and doesn't realize the opportunity we have to be out in the world and our leadership here. so people like him internationally it's something that resonates. in terms of the legislation i'm excited there's an opportunity we have so many opportunities like for chinese and latinos and other groups there's multiple features at the airport we can reach out to all groups not only in organizing but hopefully recognize heroes that inspire them today and all the features that are deep in the legislation. thank you very much >> any questions? seeing none.
thank you very much. supervisor campos >> do you want to do public comment first. >> thank you very much. first of all, thank you very much colleagues for allowing me to sit in on this committee. happy halloween. i'll let you fidget what my costume is. but first of all, i want to say i'm grateful to the 4 individuals that have applied for the four seats that are currently open. as you may recall the compromise it was struck and approved by the board of supervisors was a compromise that understood when it comes to doing anything around my name is anything at the airport it's really important for city government
both for the board of supervisors and meyer's to work together. the idea that that was finalized was that we would have a committee a group that would be composed of folks that wish approved by the mayor and board of supervisors. 5 individuals appointed by mayor and a by the board of supervisors that's consistent. we've actually detailed bringing this item its important to make sure that we have as board a recommendations on this committee as possible. and we have been doing outreach for the last few months to make sure we get us as diverse set of applicants as we could. and i appreciate the various community groups to make that
happen. it's been a challenge to because i think there's a lot of things happening in the city right now and the reason we decided to move forward is because at some point the work has to begin. and i am grateful to the applicants that are here because i do think they're committed to make sure we've heard from all of san francisco as this process go forwards. i know from working with the mayor's office they're committed to make sure the whole diversity of the city is represent so there's an interest in the 5 seats to make sure that diversity is taken into account.
i would urge anyone interested to suggest names to the mayor's office to make sure there's a diverse group of people represented. i will say that we have tripod in the last few months to get as many diverse people as possible to be interested. our success has been, you know, limited. i think that we have an opportunity through the mayor's office to add to the diversity. that said i think that the individuals you have here before you are individuals who each bring something unique to the table. and one of the things that we have asked first and foremost is the ability and willingness the commitment to reach out to other
communicates to make sure other people are engaged. you've heard from alex walker about emphasis background and i think it's well suited to the commission. of course, maggie and the work she's dip and mr. gillian's thank you very much. i understand the excitement that hvp has for the lt. and even aboard. the key thing is we'll have a working relationship to come up with some general principles and general recommendations and i think that it's important for us to have the
