september. one of the key concerns was making changes within the police department. but after just a few meetings, education has grown at least 7 members, including jamaal williams, co-chair of black leadership kitchen cabinet of silicon valley left the 46 member group because of a lack of structure. the means or the the conversations have. >> felt circular. and i for 01:00am not willing to the ban. why i believe why i know policing is races. i don't i don't have the energy city officials who helped organize the committee have argued the group is still in the early stages. and there's still time to get it right. it's been a lot of pent-up. >> frustration and tension around the need for police reform and we acknowledge that deputy city manager angel rios says he's disappointed some members of decided to quit. but the goal is to continue improving public safety. all we're asking is that people will stay at the table and work through these issues. they didn't happen overnight tonight could get was old overnight. expect change within this region.
>> we're going to continue to fight for it and we're not going to put up with. being strung along because we would have that. >> well, rios says that this committee is right now in a pause. is it re evaluate us moving forward and they do expect to regroup within the next couple of weeks and as for those who have already left this group. they're expecting more people will join them reporting live in san jose. dan thorn kron 4 news. >> thank madam speaker. madam vice president. it has ever said those words from this podium. no president ever said those words. >> and it's about time. historic moment tonight president biden beginning his first joint address to congress by thanking the 2 bay area woman behind him.
>> vice president kamala harris and house speaker nancy pelosi. the president also applauded the work done so far in his first 100 days in office. but he also laid out his priorities for the next 100 days. acknowledging that in order to do that, he needs congressional help. kron four's. anna wiernicki joins us live in washington. and at a president biden says he can't get much of that done without the help of congress. >> that's absolutely right. well, tonight's address looked a little bit different from years past. not only was the chamber less packed because of the pandemic. but the vice president and the speaker of the house for the first time sitting behind the president were both women. >> it could be back in his first joint address to congress and on the eve of his one 100th day in office. president joe biden says america is on the move again, americans always get out. >> today. that's what we're doing. america's rising the
president called his administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic a success after i promised we get 100 million covid-19 vaccine shots in the people's arms and a 100 days. we will have provided over 220 million covid shots in game and laid out his priorities for the next 100 days. we have a real chance them root out systemic racism that plagues america american lives in other ways. the chance to live or real equity. good jobs, good schools, affordable housing. but in order to move his agenda forward. the president will need the support of republicans. we need more senate republicans join the overall majority. democrat close loopholes require background check purchases guns. this was the pitch you just heard it again. >> but our nation is starving. for more than him to play the 2 south carolina senator tim scott deliver the republicans rebuttal.
>> criticizing the president for not focusing enough on the issues. he says americans care about policies and progress. that brings us. >> closer together. but 3 months in. the actions of the president and his party. our pulling us further and further apart. >> and tomorrow is officially president biden's one 100th day in office. the white house says it will be spending the day in georgia with the first lady attending a drive-in rally in atlanta live in washington. i'm anna wiernicki. back to you. >> and of the president's family plan which would. include free preschool and 2 years of free community college would cost one 0.8 trillion. one of the big. criticisms republicans have you to pay for it. right. and even a democrat, senator joe manchin of west virginia said he's quote, very uncomfortable with how much it your 5050 in the senate. how likely is it that president biden not only gets some republican support
here. but even all the democrats. >> well, that's going to be a challenge for president biden when it comes to a lot of these priorities is getting republicans on board because like you said, it is split fifty-fifty in the senate. so and that means any legislation that does passing 60 votes, which means 10 republicans would have to be on board with all democrats and a lot of these issues president biden laid out as a priority are very controversial republicans say that they don't like the plan as is. so it's going to be interesting moving forward over the next few weeks. we'll have to wait and see. as this legislation is being crafted and introduced. if will be on board with that or if they won't. >> we shall see. anna wiernicki live for us tonight in washington. thank you very much. >> all eyes are on the president for his first address since taking office. kron four's ella sogomonian live with us now in studio with reaction from some. >> congressional members who called the bay area home.
>> yeah, certainly an exciting moment for the bay area. of course, seeing those 2 women behind president biden and although he kept his tone optimistic. it's plain to see that this address comes at a very politically tense moment for him. so millions of americans are amid this pandemic and economic peril. so biden trying to get blue collar republicans on board with his american jobs and families plans by sharing the average us citizen making less than $400,000 will not see their taxes go up and instead can look forward to more jobs, child care and higher education opportunities bigger a congresswoman democrat anna eshoo and barbara lee shared their thoughts with us. >> all of his policies are wraparound policies, whether it's how they the family and their income, their security, the education of their children, how we address. a universal system for health care. not raising taxes on on the middle class. he says that
there have to be others that pay their fair share. everything that he put forward was really all about fairness and how to build and rebuild. number one, our democracy. but understanding how families have to work today. understanding i mean, who can work 40 hours a week. and some little per hour when i was growing up. whatever people earned. they could raise their family on that. the president and my address. so many of those issues. >> that has a progressive and as an african american and as a woman wanted to from the president and for a while. >> and so i was to hear him talk about poverty and child poverty for him talking about climate change in the forever
wars. passing the voting rights act hr or and for the people act. hr one, you mentioned white this terrorism and talk about and of course on the economic issues, he talked about jobs in good-paying union jobs and again, reducing poverty and i had to just tell him i was so appreciative that he talk about poverty because here in washington, dc the p word. oftentimes gets lost or is investigated because we don't talk about poor people in poverty and low income people. i was really pleased about that. i'm confident that the people in the country in their districts rise up and that they both and work on these plans. the american families plan, the jobs bill also american jobs bill that that they'll come around. >> tonight at 10, we'll hear from both again regarding biden statements on race in america. justine and grant biden laid out bottom line that america is slipping its grip in the global sphere. so
it's really important that they make these investments in order to compete with super powers like china. thank you so much. l a all right. about going the president's address or political analysts spoke with kron four's catherine heenan about how they felt that the president's speech came across. here's what they had to say. >> this is incredible speech it's expansive. it's activist. it's about in some ways an old democratic party in terms of expanding lots of different ideas at the same time trying to push forward the narrative about how many issues are related to social justice like at high speed internet access like access to clean water in joining those i like what i heard in substance. but i'll be honest that we got i was little concern about the fact what he hoped to achieve in bipartisanship. i think may be overshadowed by some different elements of his party. and i didn't like what he had to say
