8:01 pm
being built in emoryville for $56 million, a 144 z-unit building that's better than the complex i just showed you. in fact, the 144-unit complex for $56 million, three-story building, with the $1 billion that newsom says he's giving to the homeless, you could build nine. and with the other billion, you could build a 27-story apartment unit complex right next to each other. you've got 11 districts, and if you build this type of apartment building complex in each and every one of your districts, that's a total of 22,174 units for low-income

8:03 pm
and the exile itself in babylon, it said that. as jesus spoke before the high priest, and he asked him, he said are you the son of god, he said i am. i'm christ, the son of god, the son of man. he was obviously saying to him daniel, chapter 7, where the son of god, the son of man comes in the clouds of heaven. psalm 2 was well aware of these scriptures. says yes, ye be happy, and beware of the wrath.
8:04 pm
jesus said you are going to see me coming in the clouds of heaven seated at the right hand of god. he had to see that in the sense that jerusalem was destroyed. he gave that in a parable about a king. he said the king was roth and he sent forth his army --

of your city wishes come true. believe it or not, you are walking on air. single ♪ ♪ you never thought you could feel so free. single ♪ ♪ flying away on a wing and a prayer, who could it be? >> thank you. next speaker, please. [applause] >> that was a beautiful rendition, sir, thank you. good afternoon board of supervisors. i am here to let you all know that i support supervisor waltons vision zero action plan. i know it's going to help us create the changes we need in our community. as a grandmother, as a cancer survivor, still going through chemo.
8:09 pm
i just started. i understand the importance of the entire family, and how it is important from the eldest, to the youngest, that we impact them by assisting them with whatever they need. whether it be housing. whether it be homelessness. all of these issues that will move forward with the vision zero plan, are important issues. we need to support it. while we all sit around, and we all talk about how we want to see a change. let's be the change that we want to see. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. [applause] >> good afternoon supervisors. i, too, support the zero vision plan from supervisor walton. i have been here all my life, 66 years. i grew up in the fillmore, lived
8:10 pm
in the richmond, lived in the sunset, lived off ocean avenue. and now i am a resident of bayview for the last ten years. i have seen different communities evolve. i have never seen a community without help. that is what i have seen the last ten years, in the bayview. i don't want to just speak on the bayview, but because i have been there for ten years, like i said i've seen so much of the city. the bayview has lost its toe. without some type of plan, some type of honesty -- when i first came to bayview, they were talking about rebuilding the bayview, doing this i saw the community, they wanted to believe in something. yet, without hope, you have nothing. this supervisor has come with a vision. it's not just this one district. true, we have had violence, in the asian community.
8:11 pm
it has expanded over the last few years. i don't want to get into politics. but, san francisco is a city that has heart. i grew up here, it has always had heart. at 11-point, i was homeless. at one point, i was a drug addict. i have been clean now for 21 years, because of what the city has done and gave me a shot. i just want to say, if we give someone a shot, we can change something. they have to have hope. thank you. >> hi, i am laura, one of the hair workers. a resolution was introduced last week. i just want to thank you all ahead of time, in advance for the voting. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> my name is lisa rasmussen, i am a registered vet tech. i just wanted to thank you again
8:12 pm
for introducing this resolution in support of us. hopefully, you will take us a little more seriously. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, board of supervisors. it is a joy to be here. i am a supporter of supervisor waltons vision zero plan. i do represent 1500 more voters here in san francisco. we are very happy that supervisor walton has sat down and taken out time, to be concerned about district ten. it is sad to say that i have lived in the city, for 35 years, and i have buried 126 young men that died to nonviolence, in our city. we are happy today to support the supervisor plan, because we
8:13 pm
feel it is going to work. we do need more police officers, on the streets. we do need more community ambassadors on the streets. we do need more mental health. all of these things will help our district and at san francisco. we salute the board of supervisors and supervisor walton for having concerns about the homicides that is killing us in america. i know this plan -- trying to
8:14 pm
run them -- i really do hope that when the board votes, that we get a unanimous 11% vote. so far, we have ten, and we would love 11. that makes me very happy. thank you again for supporting this, workers rights are everybody's rights. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon supervisors. i am a resident of local ten, these are a few things that i have been thinking about. a lot of our seniors in bayview feel it is unsafe on the buses a day or night. we should have more bus monitors on buses, to ensure the safety
8:15 pm
for our elders father was the community -- -- in the community. also, illegal dumping in the community. you find a lot of abandoned cars in the community, also dumping garbage and all sorts of debris. streets with no lighting are prime locations for shooting, and drug use. people are using these cars for shelter. this is dangerous for the community. dead-end streets need to have lighting. years ago i noticed a lot of hauling companies, driving through the neighborhood and dumping their garbage on dead-end streets where there are no lights. when you come out in the morning and find nothing but trash and garbage, running all up and down the middle of the streets. a lot of these streets mean more lighting and protection for the community, the residence. thank you.
8:16 pm
>> good afternoon. i am just a concerned citizen. i just wanted to share something police have identified hotspots for many years here in san francisco. and we haven't been able to address these areas. we need dedicated community's plan coordinators, or a coordinator that will bring resources together to create a plan that has been discussed here. please keep in mind that graduation rates for african-american students and latino students are in the lowest it has been in san francisco. low education attainment with future poverty, and the data suggests that students in san francisco unified school district will have difficulty improving economic for their
8:17 pm
families. bayview mission had the highest number of underperforming schools and with these suggested statistics we are feeding the pipeline of violence to an equitable education and poverty. i would like to thank supervisor walton, for his leadership, with district ten in addressing violence and encourage the entire board to support his efforts working towards making san francisco a safer place to live in. thank you for your time. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> get afternoon -- good afternoon, we support the vision for zero action plan. communities are impacted by displacement, poverty, education, performance, homelessness and pollution. they have continued to exchange these homicides. we need to bring together our elders that have changed their lives, to get to the roundtable and address the violence.
8:18 pm
we need a safety plan that will bring resources together. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon supervisors. i just want to start off by congratulating come the district and supervisor that is always present in his community. i see this man at the grocery store. i see impact dmv. i find him everywhere, always present. i did come to support him today, the reason why it is so dear to me is because i have seven kids. most of them are. [inaudible] i have my son here with me today, he's 21. believe it or not i haven't slept since 93, when my first son was born because i worry about my kids coming home at night. getting on the bus, being able
8:19 pm
to get on the bus to come home, for a very long time i had to find a part-time job due to the fact of safety issues, writing on the 23, the 54 and the 44 and bayview hunters point. the buses stop about 3:00 a.m. i had to literally take my kids to school. i literally pick them up every day. i had a job that allowed me to do so. when my son was in willie brown elementary, he witnessed a shooting on the bus. he was only in seventh grade. nobody should have to endure that. nobody should have to see that. my 26-year-old, and when i say i think god every day that my son made it to two -- 26. it is a blessing. kids in our neighborhood do not make it to 25, 21. i just want to say i am in full support of this, and please bring more services to mental health, housing, anything that
8:20 pm
can help support our young youth so they can be our next generation to help our existing grandkids and our kids. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> i jump right in, good afternoon. i'm going to try how to learn this overhead projector. i don't need to be real long-winded. i just want you all to be aware of some things that may be of importance to you. when i have been down here, i have been identifying myself as patricia farrell. that is my christian name. my legal name is.

8:21 pm
since people want to get up here and talk about their genealogy, and who they are, i am 11th generation united states citizen, on my mother side. that is one generation before the pilgrims. all i am trying to do is gain the ability to have my u.s. department of treasury federal funds returned to myself in my bank account. it took me probably over 30 years to work those 40 quarters, it is not easy to do because i have suffered from a mental illness that is now classified as ptsd. i know the reason why i have it. i just want to share this letter from dish, that is funded,
8:22 pm
because i ask people -- all i need is one sentence on one piece of paper. i need to get my u.s. department of treasury funds back, then i can decide where i want to live. i was placed in 2014 -- i don't want to be a professional hobo. i need my money. >> thank you. >> if anyone is interested in what is really going on with people making he will be paid -- >> thank you, ma'am. next speaker, please. >> i just want you all to know, i'm just putting a bug in your ear right now. >> thank you, ma'am. >> were going to see what happens on the second, if i get my money or if i have to take hundred $10 to the eviction
8:23 pm
judge. next speaker, please. -- . >> next speaker, please. >> people around here putting their hands on people need to stop it. i had brain surgery last year. three weeks in acoma. trying to get my money back. >> i want to say goodbye to tony chaplin, 25 years plus in the police department. he was the interim chief. he stopped the killing. he did a good job. thank you. on the television, i saw two lovely women walking down a corridor that did more for my spirit for the democratic party.
8:24 pm
it was nancy pelosi a -- with cortez. if they can get it together, we have a little bit more hope for the future. can the city give a 10% increase at to all of its workers? i doubt it. i don't think we should be able to allow a 10% rent increase for the people that are renting in our study. a little bit of sadness when the supreme court was asking president trump for another better, dressed way, to exercise so they could vote for the citizen box on the census. the state of our supreme court is lacking. global warming, down at the border we have these people crossing trying to come into the u.s.
8:25 pm

8:26 pm
for more foster homes, group homes, low housing, more services to support families. we have many families with children who are sleeping in the cars, campers and tents. they go to the public places to clean up, and continue with our day. they are sending their children to school, going to work. we need more affordable housing that states extremely low income on local preference. we need more services when sally or john come home from jail. sally or john needs services to stay home and stay out of jail. mama and daddy needs services to support now that their child is home and the sister and brother needs services, so the families can become a whole. one other support we need is more local foster homes, and

8:55 pm
rights in my possession right now. i exercise my right to collect my funds, and i demand my funds from a united states constitutional demand. in the amount of $8,250,000, $5 billion on the 110 trillion purchasing power scientifically. an executive branches of our government, during years tran11-2016 and with this government body on july 16, 2019. i demand that the city of san francisco provide a recent auditing report, accompanied with bank statements on account numbers being used by the city. the last time i gave a public comment, i was talking about what has happened with the federal reserve, and its dictatorial practices and how it has caused the current homelessness problem, which i see. you know, i have lived here from 1985-1996. i moved to new york city, that i
8:56 pm
move back recently in in january of 2019, i am completely shocked at how many homeless american citizens there are in your streets. it is unacceptable. expert authority, thomas jefferson wrote to albert gallatin, "if the american people ever allow central banks to control, then the inflation and deflation and manipulations will deprive the people of their property, until their children wake-up homeless, on the continent their fathers conquered". my background is american monetary history, and policy, and the constitution of light. i will be happy to help thank you very much for your attention. >> next speaker, please.

8:58 pm
more homeless people. please be kind to all of the taxi medallion buyers, and please buy those medallions back and give the money back to those medallion buyers so they can rebuild their lives. also, all of the time and money they have lost, san francisco said he basically owes them for their loss of income. i would suggest to please by all of the medallions back, and also refund the loss of income that they have incurred on them, because san francisco is supporting uber and lyft. they are driving and making money on the city of san francisco streets. please help the medallion buyers. thank you.
8:59 pm
>> i have not seen a homeless person today, for the first time in memory. regarding the need waste program. good money is chasing bad litter in the win. i'm facilitating a dirty habit. you do not hand out cigarettes, you should not have a purely toxic program. given the recent spate of public fumes that have ended in tragic fatalities, i am imagining you are, as i am, against senseless acts of violence. i believe it is worth supporting the roll of media in general which far too often repeat grotesque mischaracterization, outright melissa lies and inflammatory rhetoric. immigrant families are being kidnapped, separated and taken to concentration camps, where
9:00 pm
women are told to drink water from toilets, children are locked in cages, left to sleep on cold hard concrete and said to be dying in the immigration authorities custody with u.s. border agents being vilified as fascist and nazis. unfortunately, such slander has vulgar attempts to my emotional manipulation or the commonplace tactics of character disordered individuals and borderline personalities. it comes as no surprise, given the reckless insight to violence , with the wolf tickets sold, dog whistles blown respectively. eventually a misguided lone wolf does show up and allegedly armed in front of an emigration facility, rifle in hand, attempting to detonate a propane tank, having set nearby cars and buildings of flame. is it any wonder, when uniform mexican soldiers
