excellence in innovation has been acknowledge and sharing of 25 patents and human interface did it acquisition and predicted system. each patent present product built and executed. her passion was found in a lesson of her parent on fairness. she said, i learned early on that you must find a way to participate, to be a catalyst for change on fairness and inclusion. at the time of her passing she was pursuing executive fellowship on research and development projects completed over the last five years of her work. she's survived by her sister angela r. jenkins and active resident leader and 20-year resident of district 6. i ask that we end in her memory and thank her for her work.
12:08 pm
>> thank you. supervisor mandelman. >> supervisor mandelman: i'm joined mayor breed that will allow san francisco to pilot a conservativeship program. by implementing this new law we'll have to ensure services for mentally ill and drug addicted individuals. introduction of this ordinance allows to start a conversation a will take some time. i believe it is imperative that we move the ball forward today. everyday the san franciscan suffer in our streets and jails for untreated mental illness is one day too many. we cannot continue to allow our
12:09 pm
neighborhoods to serve as open mental institutions and shelters as jails. sb1045 is not a cure all. it does offer a new tool to help people suffering from severe mental illness and addiction. it give us an opportunity to take a hard look to bill on what's working and fix what's broken. we haven opportunity and obligation to disrupt the status quo. it's my hope include process over the weeks and months, we will not add this new tool but treat it as an opportunity to evaluate and strengthen in programs we use and drug addicted homeless people. the reality is that we have many innovative program and dedicated nonprofit providers working everyday to address this crisis. these programs are not at the
12:10 pm
scale they need to be. we don't allocate resources with the problem. we have not given this issue the consistent and unrelenting focus it requires. the fact that sb1045 are not ace woes of our mental health and drug treatment system is not excuse for inaction. we must seize every opportunity to improve conditions of those suffering mental illness. i look forward working with you to make this program a successful and effective as possible. second, as the city moves forward implementation of s sb1045, the process of conserving individual begins
12:11 pm
involuntary hold. i want to thank supervisor stephanie for calling for a hearing on coordination of services for individuals suffering from substance abuse and mental health disorders. we need to know whether we currently use l.p.s. as efficiently and effectively. we need to understand why not. data shows last year they received 253 fewer referrals than in 2011. that is in 2011-2012 -- why are fewer individuals recommended for con -- i believe answering questions like these will improve our current importance to substance abuse.
12:12 pm
after the bla work is complete, we will be making are the full report available to members of the board and public. i will be requesting a hearing on the final report at that time and the rest i submit. >> thank you. supervisor peskin. >> supervisor peskin: thank you madam clerk. it is with a very heavy heart that i would like to adjourn this board meeting in the memory of the 11 people who were murdered in pittsburgh together with my colleague supervisor ronen and supervisor mandelman maybe from the entire board in a anti--filled anti-semitic gun-toting rampage.
12:13 pm
they were all murdered on saturday morning by a neonazi in pittsburgh. it is unimaginable to me. it is the largest mass killing of jewish people in the united states of america. i want to associate myself with the resolution that supervisor stephanie will be introducing and as rabbi said, it's about love first. i held a hearing last week and thank the oversight committee for hearing the san francisco housing authority matter. they spent $29.5 million that
12:14 pm
they did not have. that's the bad news. compounded that audits in 2013 and 2017 showed that their fiscal house was in disorder. the good news is that it appears that the city will take over the housing authority. not just by appointing the members of its board but by actually taking over its day-to-day functions. i'm asking for a budget and legislative analyst report and will be introducing a motion to look at the structure of the city and corporation of san francisco housing authority and rest i will submit. >> thank you supervisor ronen. >> supervisor ronen: thank you. i wanted to make a few remarks with the horrific killings at the tree of life, which was without a doubt, a heinous act
12:15 pm
of anti-semitism. it was clear he was targeting that synagogue because of the work they were doing to refugee. the killer posted in the immigrant aid society accusing them of bringing in invaders and worse. the extreme right has been obsessing about them and the work they've done to protect and assist refugees seeking asylum. the hatred inflamed by the current administration in washington are directed at all of us. i send my deepest sympathies to who's who loves ones. we are all in this together and we must fight back together.
12:16 pm
i find myself more and more speechless that after every horrific tragic mass killing that nothing seems to wake up this administration and congress to do something about the ability of assault rifles to people. i don't know what we need to wake us up. after every tragedy that is so hard to even understand, that is is heinous, nothing changes.+ i don't know what we're all supposed to do. what i do know is that we have to vote. we have to vote for representatives that don't do nothing after every single
12:17 pm
heinous mass murder in this country. please vote. thank you. >> thank you. supervisor safai. >> supervisor safai: thank you fofor those words. i like to associate myself with the resolution she has
