2:45 pm
there with me so my agent roger based out of here i can say i said their names he is buzz picking up his daughter i wanted to understand what about any case is too important important i came to understand what we have in the country is stigmas that are in the workplace that push women to stay at home and men at work i came to understand you can't treat the symptoms this is the cause it is madmen so this is literally in the 1950s we were coming out of war and the economy of what it was to be americans in a successful men and women and it was so strictly gender very clear woman baby home and men at work so for
2:46 pm
example, as you may know it is a tremendous privilege to have oversight childcare you'll come back to work and pay more for oversight childcare but if it is agree financial why do zero businesses have it, it is the way our work culture was designed men at work women at home with babies we have our policies bye bye far the biggest thing that holds usz us back is stigmas men face loss of their jobs when they put family first a man has a baby gets more money only applies to those men who show their bosses that work is more important than family they stay there extra hours men to
2:47 pm
this day a raised up this ranks for sitting at the desks for more hours we're sending the merging message that work is more important men have faced accomplishment a guy in the book he was born - he only amazed missed a couple of days his boss called him into the office don't you, you know we no idea you around here that basis bos what a pregnant women not that many bosses in general are women but rare times women are willing to tap into the norms and guys are accomplished it is connected and bad for businesses i organ those events we get men to talk about the work conflicts that that in
2:48 pm
turn talks about a huge difference this is one of the biggest reasons a big incentive and u.s. men are moving to another country for more time w that was found and seen the statistics men are leaving in their jobs and not talking about why businesses are losing greatest employees that is brain drain men and women are leaving their jobs and businesses are losing phenomenal people that is hurting all of use it is expensive to replace an employee global world i'd so men in maternity leave is it is unused because of stigmas getting rid of of the stigmas until we do that we'll not have equal
2:49 pm
opportunities my children will feel into a madman work cultural 20 years ago from now and my daughter will not have the option to stay at home and one other thing it is my industry that blouse it presenting the wrong idea about dads this is a strong example another jerpd gap men spend more time in leisure activities and jumps on the lazy dads it operationally is anti dads stereotyped i know that sounds backward this is false the recorded spends more time the study says on average the dad spends more 20 minutes on leisurely sport and women spends more time on sleep and the number of hours with the day
2:50 pm
work and caregivers theirs quality but people believe that why give a man maternity leave keep the woman at home he'll drink a beer and keep him at work all the backward ideas are the same thing the flip coin of the privilege against women women shouldn't work their ways up in range and the men should not get maternity leave make them stop and this is the last thing this is a guy in any book it lives in san francisco mark and i met him evident at any table in the hotel he works 3 jobs he sees his kids when their asleep the same structures we need living wages and transportation and the ability to tackle men are suffering so
2:51 pm
we have an opportunity when we starts talking about this allows conflict the men want the opportunity to care for their children bring that out into the light we see how we really are in this and guys talk about guys are afraid to talk about that they'll unintentionally say something offense i start out with male events and they bring in a few women and men feel comfortable and end with this what was yours first dream not the first overnight but the aspiration people say we want to commend be an ass not or a firefighter they're wrong the first dream that we all had was the same one it was to be held
2:52 pm

3:10 pm
ad backs and like always, there's always going to be more needs and not enough money so it was difficult to always make that decision of what we want to support and what we don't. we want to support everything, but we have limited funding. i think the cover my second out of this was a very good compromise. we worked real hard to make sure that nobody was left behind. maybe we wanted to push certain issues but we all figured it out. so, thank you chairman farrell f working with everybody to make sure that we could have a conference of budget that could make our city better. thank you very much >> thank you supervisor yee. supervisor weiner >> thank you mr. chair and again mr. chair i want to really thank you for your

3:12 pm
to zero which is a monumental undertaking. something that was unimaginable even at few years back and once again it's what keeps san francisco not just on the cutting edge, but creating models for addressing ultimately and ending the hiv epidemic that can be exported around the country and around the world. the budget package is $3.1 million. the mayor put in $600,000. this board of supervisors has put in the other $2.5 million. that's 100% funding this plan. the plan is great but without the funding attached to it it can't do what we need it to do. i want to thank personally and publicly thank chairman farrell for his incredible support in making the getting the funding possible and for having the back of the lgbt community. so, thank you to everyone. this is a good budget.

3:37 pm
of the earthquake, we say to provide for 72 hours tha, is three days, and it helps to know that you might be without services for up to a week or more, depending on how heavy the shaking is and how many after shocks we have. >> what kind of neighborhood and community involvement might you want to have before an earthquake to make sure that you are going to able to have the support that you need. >> it is important to have a good relationship with your neighbors and your community. go to those community events, shop at local businesses, have a reciprocal relationship with them so that you know how to take care of yourself and who you can rely on and who can take care of you. it is important to have a battery-operated radio in your home so that you can keep track of what is happening in the community around and how you can communicate with other people. >> one of the things that seems important is to have access to your important documents. >> yes, it is important to have copies of those and also stored them remotely. so a title to a home, a
3:38 pm
passport, a driver's license, any type of medical records that you need need, back those up or put them on a remote drive or store them on the cloud, the same is true with any vital information on your computer. back that up and have that on a cloud in case your hard drive does not work any more. >> in your home you should be prepared as well. >> absolutely. >> let's take a look at the kinds of things that you might want to have in your home. >> we have no water, what ar we going to do about water? >> it is important for have extra water in your house, you want to have bottled water or a five gallon container of water able to use on a regular basis, both for bathing and cooking as well as for drinking. >> we have this big container and also in people's homes they have a hot water heater. >> absolutely, if you clean your hot water heater out regularly you can use that for showering, drinking and bathing

3:41 pm
and another spare flashlight. >> so, alicia what else can we do to prepare our homes for an earthquake so we don't have damage? >> one of the most important things that you can do is to secure your valuable and breakable items. make sure that your tv is strapped down to your entertainment cabinet or wall so it does not move. also important is to make sure that your book case is secure to the wall so that it does not fall over and your valuable and breakables do not break on the ground. becoming prepared is not that difficult. taking care of your home, making sure that you have a few extra every-day items on hand helps to make the difference. >> that contributes dramatically to the way that the city as a whole can recover. >> absolutely. >> if you are able to control your own environment and house and recovery and your neighbors are doing the same the city as a whole will be a more resilient city. >> we are all proud of living in san francisco and being prepared helps us stay here. >> so, thank you so much for

3:44 pm
sflafco minutes from the may 20, 2016 regular meeting. >> any comments or questions? commissioner chris >> like to move to approve them >> will do that after public comment. will open up public comment on sflafco's minutes. we will close public comment >>[gavel] >> motion from commissioner crews did seconded by commissioner mar dirt will take that without objection should be dick without objection that passes. >> great. >> the agenda item number three resolution to the board of supervisors regarding amendment to sflafco terms. >> okay, so this is a resolution that discusses moving our executive officers position, which is actually terminating i'm not sure what the date is-june 30 continued
3:45 pm
for two more years. the continuance of the position will be allowed by resolution, but also would be subject to a decision by sflafco extending funding and the fte by the board of supervisors. so, really, i want to make sure that especially moving through this fiscal year that as we are launching cca, executive officer position can continue. that's super-critical. i also feel that since we spent a great deal of our time on cca, clean power sf, there were in transition right now to look at new projects, that sflafco can pick up long-term, one that we talked about for a number of years have been the municipal fiber program, which is been off and on the topic of
3:46 pm
discussion, but not a real long-term topic. i want to make sure that we put something before us very very shortly that could address some of the long-term work that sflafco could you. i believe this other projects that we can pick up as well as an agency and i want to see if those can be explored. so, i'm willing to entertain other ideas that commissioners might have before inserting other ideas and projects that could be for sflafco seconds i support the position for two more years that will be through the fiscal-to the end of the fiscal year 2018. commissioner crews >> i think that it was a few minutes ago we talked about future agenda items and how we could use our executive
3:47 pm
director without impacting the work on cca but also making sure there something in the pipeline. i think that possibly at the next meeting i like to bring some ideas forward for other projects. i just want to give myself some to think about it and maybe look at work that other sflafco that are similar to us have done. and you sort of thinking about how we can best utilize the agency. i certainly support expanding mr. breed's context. i'm sorry. it's the position not a contact. and then making sure that we have projects and budget approved through that time if that's appropriate. >> great. i am wondering if there's a little bit of what you might be able to do before
3:48 pm
this resolution comes before the board of supervisors. that could be may be sharing just maybe through e-mail with us that would be helpful. because i think we are going to be a lot of questions will be asked about future work that sflafco could do. i think the municipal fiber one that the board will be readily ready to discuss but other things we could throw in the mix as potential work for sflafco in the future but other ideas that come up, i heard, would be preparing the city with long-term plans for sea level rise and some of the infrastructure will have to develop around that. i think that could be a great project. i think other jurisdictions might be looking at similar type of issues and might want to explore what they find perhaps in california. >> what i was thinking was
3:49 pm
cal-but he recently and perhaps there was some workshops that were relevant to our sflafco but other sflafco in california were-how they are staff hours and projects and everything are directed to my maybe that would give us some insight into ways we can expand. >> okay. will open the site up for public comment. any member of the public who would like to comment, please come forward. see no one come forward will close public comment. >> >>[gavel] >> will move this recommendation. moved and seconded. will take that without objection. >>[gavel] >>
3:50 pm
>> motion to refer without passes without objection with commissioner campos being excused. >> great. let's go on to item number four case >> item number four executive officers report. >> jason breed executive officer. the things i want point out since were meeting today of the leaders chairs provocative not them have our meeting on june 24 did so when next meeting will not be until july 22. i want make sure folks were aware that we don't have a cca update on this agenda because we want to [inaudible] i wanted to a couple quick update on stuff going on. there's a bill called ab- 1530, which doesn't directly impact cca itself but it does the with electricity generation and pass-throughs that occurred. it would impact both pg any and-customers equally. but it does have some issues with it of how setting sometimes they don't like that potentially impact related cca matters. we
3:51 pm
are monitoring that i'm and there's also a second oh, and four, ab--11 which would basically limited the cpuc independence from state legislature. right now, there's a firewall put in place and still learning about this just came out. last couple days for me so i'm still learning to try to get my head around it but from what i understand would basically say the cpuc would it potentially stokes this but the state legislature could change our functions and how it works and actually be more treated more like a department that an independent agency. so, there could be some good. but also be very bad that occurs with that. i know there's some advocacy groups out there that are
3:52 pm
advocating against it. the constitutional amendment it is already past two thirds by the assembly. it still needs a two thirds vote in the state senate and then would go to the november ballot and when he two thirds of the general public support as well. if not can happen immediately but something that might be worthwhile to pay attention to potentially and come out opposed to if we so desire. ashley came on my later after after we did this i judge it out what the judges determine if there's any action we need to take before the next meeting as far as sending opposed letters to the state senate or anything like that to try and stop it it makes sense for us to use out >> what are the initiatives to do this come from? >> i apologize. i don't have that information with me. i know that some in the audience is a lot more detail on this bill than i do. i would yield to public comment to answer that question. >> okay. commissioner crews. >> not that i haven't spent a lot of time on the california secretary of state website, but when do you know when the filing deadline is for this in terms when it needs to be put on-to go on the november ballot? window would be
3:53 pm
finalized? >> i'm assuming in the next month or two women 20 to finalize anything to: about. since it's a state legislator posits it's a slightly different process and i don't know the state processes then i know the signature gathering one. >> thanks. >> okay, thank you. when we hear from the public. public comment. >> good afternoon, commissioners that eric brooks, today on speak on behalf of both energy folks like california for energy choice and public next along around public broadband and internet access because it was the to the bill that your staff just raised. it's actually technical corrections aca-11 because it's for ballot measure. basically, with this bill came from is that it sponsor a summary member mike gâteau, had attempted to put through a measure and failed that would've allowed at&t to
3:54 pm
completely dump it where mine service which would have been very bad for a lot of low income people that need their phones. he had previous legislation that actually have divided the cpuc into up into five entities. this legislation will create a ballot measure that we completely open-ended and will allow the legislature, if it wishes, to completely get rid of the california public utilities commission. absolutely. create new agencies to put their responsible is another existing agencies. it would get caught lunch to the legislature to do whatever it wants. in light of the fact that the legislature is heavily influenced by fossil fuel interests and communications interest, for example, in the sp-350, oil limits were completely gutted from the appeal because of money pressure from oil companies, so, were facing a situation where this gets to the ballot and it passes, we will have to engage in a gargantuan effort to make sure we don't end up going out of the fine hand which is the cpuc witches
3:55 pm
admittedly be terrible and into the fire of the legislature hacking us to bits. so, i really encourage you to staff follow this carefully. quickly, it won't be too late by next months meeting to deal with this, but you may want to consider special meeting if it looks like this is moving forward me to weigh in on it. thanks. >> i decided i should also mention like i said, this impacts not just clean energy and committee choice. this impacts the public bobbin system. the legislature several years ago also got rid of the ability of local municipalities like ourselves, to form our own franchise agreements and the hard-line on our franchise agreement with communications providers like comcast. now those are state franchises. so on communications as well, we will be throwing control of
3:56 pm
these utilities these two communication utilities to the legislature and that to me is a scary prospect at this potential major benefits on both energy and efficient but also as potential disastrous consequences. so, thanks. >> thank you. any of the members of the public would like to comment? seeing none, will close public comment is closed. >>[gavel] >> this is just an information item so we are onto our next item >> item number five, public, members of the public may address the sflafco on matters that are within their jurisdiction and not on today's agenda >> good afternoon commissioners. the mass population, of the giant, upon [inaudible] of active missionary forces leading to total ms. of well-being of having extreme fine way of changing [inaudible] definitely witty expectation for mankind

3:59 pm
looking at sea level rise,, open source voting which is one we taken up as well. i think working with commissioner crews to see if other sflafco's are working on projects that might be appropriate here for san francisco might be worthwhile as well. okay, this item is now open up for public comment. future agenda items. see no member of the public, and will close public comments. >>[gavel] >> will go on tour last item >> item number seven, adjournment >> we are adjourned. thank you. >>[gavel] >>[adjournment] >>
