a) The Southeast Community Facility Commission presented a Certificate of Appreciation and Excellence to the immediate past Captain of the Bayview Police Station, Patricia "PJ" Jackson upon her re-assignment to the Asst. Police Chief's office. Capt. Jackson stated that although her tenure was brief one (under 2 yrs) the residents of the Southeast Sector has "raised the bar" as to what is required/ necessary of the local station to work with the Community. In her new position, Capt. Jackson will maintain the open door policy established while at Bayview as she see this as a continuation of her personal policy to serve - "the Bayview-Hunter’s Point/Southeast Sector isn't losing a Captain, there gaining a voice at 850 Bryant".
b) San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera then gave a brief overview of his "first 100 days in office". Some initial and immediate changes have been to:
establish a Neighborhood Services Division - Five to six teams pulled to work public relations, the school district, environmental enforcement, code enforcement and residential protection:
- Environmental Division, to effect clean up in the City;
- Public Integrity, crisis in the integrity of local government (investigates abuse by City officials);
- Broadened administrative issues: more efficient billing procedures by inducing accountability to prioritize; lowering billing rates to other City agencies/depts. etc.
- Adopted the spirit of Public's Right to Know - published on-line all written opinions not bound by confidentiality;
- Litigate affirmatively especially in health matters.
Feels the 1st 100 days have been successful in achieving a 95% satisfaction rate for a better and more responsive law office.
c) Mr. Cornelius Wise of Providence Foundation of San Francisco requested an updated, duplicate letter of support of the Foundation's bid for HUD 202 grant monies to fund a 52-unit senior housing project in the Community.
