on the adoption without reference to committee calendar. please note that public comment is not allowed on items already subject to public comment by a board committee. please direct your remarks to the board as a whole, not to individual supervisors, nor to the audience. speakers using translation assistance will be allow twice the amount of time. and if you would like a document to be displayed on the overhead projector, please clearly state such to sfgov-tv and remove the document when the screen should return to live coverage of the meeting. >> let's hear from our first speaker. you have two minutes. yes, i'll be making a display. my name is peter war field. i'm executive direct r of library users association and i want to talk a little about the history of library secrecy and its ongoing bad effect. in 1988, san francisco voters approved a $109 million bond program whose ultimate cost was 188 million.
and to build a state-of-the-art main library, new main library that would have room for decades of growth in the book collection, what they unfortunately got was a new main library that was too small for the books that were already owned and the dumping of hundreds of thousands of more books. what happened is described in a book "patience and fortitude" also in nichols and bakers famous article in new york of october of '96. in the final paragraph of a 39-page chapter on once a future library in san francisco, kevin starr, the former city librarian of san francisco, wrote, "these people disestablished a distinguished collection. to say that the san francisco public library, the largest public library at the center of ground zero of the fourth
largest urban population mass in the nation, should divest itself of a collection that is moving toward 100 years old, to disestablish that collection without any mandate or public discussion is shocking." and he talks about in the previous pages about why and how that process worked and he he talks about the secrecy that made it possible. the library has talked about a new project which will affect negatively the public access to magazines and has absolutely kept secret the negative impact. thank you. >> next speaker. i'm mark trout and it's sometimes said that jesus never spoke out against homosexuality. and since there is so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us, it bee
monthsv all of us not to judge any of us. but that's actually not a sip turrell statement. ~ behooves ~ you need to part thence [speaker not understood]. verily i say to you it shall be more tolerable for sodom and gomorrah than [speaker not understood]. he spoke out about homosexuality by example in adhering to all the lives of moses, second by his actual words that i read to you, and thirdly by inspiring the apostle paul. now, first in adherence to all the laws of moses and leviticus, don't commit adultery, don't burn your children in fire to molech which reminds me of bohemian grove up there, a franklin cover up written by senator
john de camp, it's as true as the bible is. it's all true. it has to do with satanism and child sacrifice and pedophilia. it's an incredible book. but god, after saying that, said, and don't be a homosexual. and don't do it with animals. so, jesus by his example in keeping all the laws of moses did preach against it. thirdly, when he inspired paul to write romans, timothy and corinthians, he he he said here, for this cause god gave them up unto vitaminvialaffections for even women changed the natural use into that which is against nature. likewise also the men leaving the natural use of the woman burned in their lust one toward another, men with men. ~ >> next speaker.
12, 69, 12, 67, [speaker not understood], 26 in wisconsin. one is a vacant apartment, the other one has no phone. 1267 has no phone. 17 last year, it was out 30 days to do a 30-minute job. i did a verbal and written request with the housing authority to come get it fixed. now, it's gone on the third week. this is deja vu. imagine you without a house, don't bring up cell phone. i'm talking about my house phone. 911, call police, fire, it's impossible. like the picture i've fallen down and i can't get up, that's a possibility. i asked them and can't understand why it takes so long. i want them to move at the same speed as if i did not pay the rent that they would send me an eviction notice, five working days approximately. by the way, vice president pa
trayer he owe terrace tenant association, so you can imagine if i'm having this problem, somebody ~ somebody who is straight tenant paying, people get frustrated. they don't want to do nothing. keeping that vacant apartment made a lot of enemies, telling people they can't vacate there. so, all i ask is have my phone. they got their own private contract. it don't take three weeks, three weeks. california bred, born and raised here in san francisco. thank you, everybody. >> next speaker. good evening, supervisors. i first line of chronicle read, navy to test treasure island holds for radiation. in my opinion, the mayor's office and board of supervisors have inadequately handled the
affairs at treasure island. three people need to discuss this matter publicly, preferably under oath, under threat of subpoena. first person, gavin newsom. second person, sean elsbernd. third person, tony hall. let's get down to the fact whether it's safe to live there or not. i think the only way to test whether it's really safe there is to have the mayor and the board of supervisors live in those contested properties where radiation is suspect, and i want to see who stays there and who leaves because, in my opinion, that's when i can tell whether it's safe or not safe. second headline says [speaker not understood] computers engaging stat of roughly 56,000 department of public health patients.
once again for the record, in my opinion, the mayor's office and the board of supervisors have actively prevented a full audit of the department of public health. one lady has died, and then now we have this, and hopefully people will sue the city of san francisco for negligence in regards to the department of public health. the giants are supposed to win the world series this year after 10 12. so, let's not let the curse occur and have the team get hit by injuries. just like the 49ers lost three times because of bad luck. hopefully the curse doesn't end the giants 14th season. thank you. >> final speaker. [speaker not understood]. good evening, president chiu, and to all the supervisors that are here. my name is [speaker not understood] and i am vice
president of hunters view resident council which i was just honored by president torres of the commission of the housing authority. yesterday we received this flyer, i'll leave it here for you guys. and it don't say where they're going. it says 131 family center, which the city has the ymca and that is where that is. but my point is that they are picking out who they want to go to these meetings. so, they took the youth there. i'm coming to you guys because you guys [speaker not understood]. anybody come up there in hunters view to talk with the board, [speaker not understood] president chiu, i'm sure ain't nobody in your house going to do something you don't know. and this don't make no sense. recognize who we are. they can't [speaker not understood] partnership and take these kids places we don't know nothing about it. and also we've been working with the youth. they took them to go fight for the superintendent [speaker not understood]. john stewart hasn't built
anything up there for those kids. just like the flyer does, apri, [speaker not understood], director and james ryan and jbr. this saturday they have [speaker not understood] welcome all of you. also april 26 we have [speaker not understood] and pollution walk from martin luther king park to [speaker not understood] street. [speaker not understood] green action by l angel and maery harris and along about my mother's and father's committee. we want to welcome all of you. we would like you to look at the list going on with the fliers going on. and we work very closely with ed because barbara smith and george who is over all the tenant [speaker not understood] in the city. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. that mic is fine, yes, thank you. good evening, board members. my name is he will vin james brown and i'm a ten-year
resident of san francisco. i reside at the all-star hotel which is an s-r-o hotel managed by the largest housing services contractor in the city, the tenderloin housing clinic and randy shaw. i'd like to bring to the board's attention a matter which i consider to be fraudulent, collusion between the san francisco human services commission and tenderloin housing clinic. tenderloin housing clinic is in violation of its contract with the city and it has been since october 12th of 2012. there is an order of abatement on my hotel, the all-star hotel located at 16th and folsom. and that has been in effect since 2012 -- since october 2012, excuse me. i went to the human services commission meeting before they approved the grant approval, grant modification approval a
month after this order of abatement was issued. the human services agency granted tenderloin housing clinic $260,000 in a grant modification despite this order of abatement being in effect. to me that just smacks of the city wasting public funds and giving favoritism to the largest city contractor there is for public -- for housing services. i have a blog which you can look at all of these documents and further read about it. all star activist.com as well as slum hotel.com. it is also a san francisco article, san francisco gate article written on this by carol williams. thank you. >> are there any other members of the public that wish to speak?
