section of san francisco as well as many other sections of san francisco and you mentioned the name of the person tony salazar tony come up here you've been responsible for this my guess is working with kathy working with olsen lee and the city and michael baine you didn't do it alone. >> you're right mr. mayor. >> i wasn't going to say that i'm glad you brought it up and (laughter) and if the time to renegotiate i'll - >> please thank you - i appreciate that. >> let me say you know it takes a village to raise a child it takes a strong committed compassionate village like the
3:03 am
one that mayor ed lee is creating in the city to care for seniors and to help them grow and thrive and as seniors should continue in a very comfortable fashion someone has to build that village and plan and design and operate and maintain it and that would be me and it takes a lot of people to do that i'll introduce a lot of people in the mini want to say a couple of things about me standing here on a personal note as during the groundbreaking that many of you were with here he shared the story of meeting dr. davis him inviting me to san francisco and talking about his vision and wanting someone to take his vision and turn it into reality
3:04 am
and after multiple visits and meetings and mraifg pool and dominos and eve peach cobbler after the fourth meeting he be finally said you're my developer you'll do and i said at this point, i was questioning whether i really wanted to do this but he said you have to meet with any board he r i met with the board they said who is this guy coming up from la this mexico guy we're trying to have it an all african-americans and after three or four meetings with the board they finally said well, your close enough. (laughter) you can be our partner and i just wanted to share that with you because there was a vision created my job to translate that vision into this
3:05 am
and it is very hard when george passed because i if have anybody to ask a question is that the right is this what it is supposed to look like and feel like and kathy davis fortunately to be my partner and help turn that vision into reality but it takes a village so build a village i want to acknowledge people here that are here today, there recent a lot of people's fingertips on the building and david barker was the architect and several people here i think that kevin wilcox and the contractor was baine and a joint venture old friends lots work together this city is fortunate to have those kinds of
3:06 am
professionals here and to make sure those kinds of things happy mr. mayor couldn't have been possible your department focused and the mayor's office of housing, ocii, olsen lee and pam is here, eqt and tiffany bohe those people have raised their hands thank you for getting those kind of things and the city public health department margo, housing authority my old colleague barbara smith and nicole is very helpful always also want to notwithstanding my nonprofit the bayview hunters point multi purpose team center they're our nonprofit partners development partner they're providing the

3:09 am
>> >> (clapping.) >> and, of course, this structure and all of the efforts made by all the people that tony described and in particular, the city had to be a reach out to the private sector and reaching ousted out to the private sector is the easiest when someone who retired yesterday and moved on to a private sector but still owe you (laughter) fred blackwell owes us. (laughter) and fred blackwell stepped up when duty called had the san francisco did side needed money fred blackwell >> you didn't show up last night (laughter) thank you for that great introduction it is really a pleasure to be as mayor willie
3:10 am
brown is referred to a bunch of people you can see when you look at this kathy and the team and mccormick and salazar pay attention whether that was the paint, the design, the kitchen, the unit the courtyard it is a fabulous this but not what i want to talk about i want to talk about is what you don't see in terms of candidates that were made here because kathy davis knew a few things about, about how this project needs to move forward and one of the things she knew was that just because a building looks at good just because it is affordable just because it has great services and well-designed didn't necessarily mean it is good for the community what she knew was that when the
3:11 am
people moved in and built this that if they are that not participating in building if at the doesn't see it is theirs if the people who lived through the years of challenge in the bayview this would be a monument to look at all the good stuff not for you. >> so kathy before the financing was in place, before the first dirty was turned for the groundbreaking was working on making sure this was a building that was a project that represented what bayview wanted to see and that would be viewed as something that was theirs she did aggressive outreach and worked to fine the certificate of preference holders that was done wrong prior the project and moved from the city and didn't
3:12 am
have the opportunity to participate in. >> (clapping.) >> and benefit from projects in the western edition 9 bayview she came to us and asked for support to do legal analysis to do how far to do the outreach and make it specific without breaking the law okay. >> (clapping.) >> and she worked with the board of supervisors to even pass policies that allows for neighborhood preferences to be put in place so when the housing opened that state be reflective like i look at the community she knew would benefit. >> (clapping.) >> so it is for that i actually thank kathy and the team and everybody visions and hard working to this is something people participate and benefit from i don't quote
3:13 am
rappers but my jordan song this is how we do it and other folks that are thinking about doing these things in the future thank you . >> (clapping.) >> you know, i knew he wouldn't be able to finish his remarks without calling on-stage rappers he wanted to be a stage rapper not the executive on any of those things if you can't find him anyone someone is performing go to a web performances this is one dedicated musician (laughter) talented we really think your decency to the thrown clearly has been a great benefit 0 not to just for me but all the community you came from having
