Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Meeting – 09/01/2020

FINANCIAL WELL-BEING OF OUR RESIDENTS AND THIS PANDEMIC IS DYNAMIC, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT AND HAS PUSHED US TO BE DYNAMIC IN OUR RESPONSE NOTHING ELSE IS ACCEPTABLE THAN IS THE CASE WHEN IT COMES TO SUPPORTING OUR WORKFORCE, MANY OF WHOM ARE PROVIDING ESSENTIAL SERVICES AND KEEPING OUR ECONOMY AFLOAT WE KNOW THAT AND WE’RE STEPPING UP WHILE THE SITUATION CONTINUES TO EVOLVE, WE KNOW A FEW SECTORS HAVE EXPERIENCED A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF THE DISEASE BURDEN, ROUGHLY THREE FOURTHS OF THE CASES HAVE COME FROM EIGHT INDUSTRIES, JUST EIGHT OUT OF ALL THE INDUSTRIES OUT THERE, 75 PERCENT ARE BORNE BY THESE EIGHT AND WE HAVE TO DO MORE TO ADDRESS THIS AND WE SHOULD DO IT WITH GOOD FAITH AND GOOD INTENTION AND WITHOUT APOLOGY FIRST, I BELIEVE, MADAME CHAIR AND COLLEAGUES, WE MUST MAKE IT EASY FOR OUR WORKFORCE TO FILE ANONYMOUS COMPLAINTS VIA PHONE OR ONLINE AND MORE BROADLY SPEAKING, THANKS TO SUPERVISOR KUEHL’S LEADERSHIP, THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PUBLIC HELLS COUNCILS WILL ARE — PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS WILL PROVIDE ANOTHER TOOL IN THE TOOLKIT TO BETTER MONITOR, DOCUMENT AND REPORT PUBLIC HEALTH VIOLATION ALL OF THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT IF WE WANT TO SLOW THE SPREAD, WE NEED TO DO IT IN THE CONTEXT OF A JUST ECONOMY AND THIS IS AN OPTIONAL PROGRAM IT SHOULD BE CLEAR SUCH IS THE CASE THE FOCUS WILL BE ON SECTORS THAT HAVE HIGH RATES OF PUBLIC HEALTH VIOLATIONS AND OF OUTBREAKS BUT THIS CRISIS HAS ALSO FORCED US TO CONTEND WITH THE LARGER SYSTEM-RELATED CHALLENGES IMPACTING OUR LABOR FORCE AND ITEM 18 PROPOSES THAT WE RETHINK OUR GOVERNANCE MODEL THROUGH THE POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF AN OFFICE OF LABOR EQUITY THIS CAN BE A WIN/WIN AND WE SHOULD SEE IT AS SUCH, FOR BUSINESSES, FOR EMPLOYEES, AND FOR THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE IT’S A WIN/WIN/WIN, A TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE IN THAT SENSE STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT STRONG WORKER PROTECTIONS DRIVE DOWN JOB VULNERABILITY AND OFFER STABILITY TO OUR WORKFORCE AND, BY EXTENSION, TO THE ECONOMY AS A WHOLE TO OUR COMMUNITIES, WE WANT STRONGER AND BETTER COMMUNITIES ADDITIONALLY, INVESTMENTS IN TRAINING AND BENEFITS FOR WORKERS HAVE SHOWN TO DECREASE TURNOVER AND INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY WHAT’S BAD ABOUT THAT? NOTHING WE PRESERVE EMPLOYER/EMPLOYEE RELATIONS AND ATTRACT ECONOMICALLY COMPLEX INDUSTRIES AND ACCELERATE OUR REGIONAL ECONOMIC GROWTH SO ENSURING THAT THE COUNTY IS SET UP TO ENGAGE IN THESE POLICY DISCUSSIONS IS IMPERATIVE TO OUR WORK ON THE ISSUE OF EQUITY AND I’VE ASKED RAFAEL CAR BA HAL, OUR ACTING DIRECTOR OF CONSUMER AND BUSINESS AFFAIRS, TO SPEAK ON THE OPPORTUNITIES PRESENTED BY THIS MOTION AND MADAME CHAIR, BRIEFLY, TO DISCUSS HOW THIS CAN BETTER IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF OUR WORKFORCE AND BEFORE I INVITE HIM TO SPEAK WITH YOUR CONSENT, I’D LIKE TO ASK SUPERVISOR KUEHL FOR HER COLLABORATION ON THESE ISSUES TO MAKE HER REMARKS AND THUS I TURN THE MATTER TO HER WITH YOUR CONSENT, MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. HILDA SOLIS: SUPERVISOR KUEHL, GO RIGHT AHEAD >> SUP. SHEILA KUEHL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR I SPEAK FIRST TO ITEM 18, WHICH I AM VERY PLEASED TO COAUTHOR AND THANK SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS FOR BRINGING IT VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE OFFICE OF LABOR EQUITY, WHICH IS BROADER THAN JUST THE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCIL’S PROGRAM IN MY MOTION, ITEM 24 I THINK IT’S VERY IMPORTANT AT THIS TIME WHEN WORKERS ARE ON THE FRONT LINES OF THIS PANDEMIC BUT IT’S IMPORTANT INTO THE FUTURE, AS WELL, BECAUSE THIS NOTION OF CARING ABOUT THE WORKERS IN L.A. COUNTY, MAKING CERTAIN THAT THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO KEEP THEIR WORKPLACES SAFE AND TO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR OWN HEALTH MATTERS I THINK IS VERY IMPORTANT AS ITEM 24, WE’RE FEELING CONSCIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC THESE DAYS ABOUT THE NUMBERS GOING

DOWN AND WE KNOW IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF WORK ON ALL OF OUR PART TO KEEP DOWN THE NUMBERS OF CASES OF COVID-19 WE’RE DEVELOPING EACH DAY AND I THINK THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT WE FOUND TO HELP KEEP THE NUMBERS DOWN IS WHEN WE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE THAT THE HEALTH OFFICER ORDERS ARE ACTUALLY FOLLOWED AT THE FACILITIES AND ESTABLISHMENTS THAT AREN’T CURRENTLY OPEN IT HELPS US TO MOVE TO OPEN OTHERS BUT ALSO TO KEEP OUR WORKERS SAFE AND IT’S STILL THE CASE IN SOME BUSINESSES SIMPLY HAVE NOT PUT THE NECESSARY PROTOCOLS IN PLACE AND THERE HAVE BEEN ACCOUNTS OF OUTBREAKS AND PLACES WHERE BUSINESSES ARE NOT IN COMPLIANCE AND SO WHAT WE HOPE TO DO IN THE MOTION IN NUMBER 24 IS TO DIRECT THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH TO DEVELOP AN IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR A PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCIL PROGRAM AND IT WOULD PROVIDE WORKERS WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THE HEALTH OFFICER ORDERS SO THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT IS REQUIRED OF THEIR WORKPLACES, PROTOCOLS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN PLACE FOR THEIR INDUSTRIES, AND ENCOURAGES THEM TO REPORT SUSPECTED CASES OF NONCOMPLIANCE TO PUBLIC HEALTH DIRECTLY, WHICH LESS INS THEIR FEAR OF RETAILIATION THEY WERE ASSURED TO HAVE RESOURCES AVAILABLE SO THEY ARE WELL-EDUCATED IN A LANGUAGE THAT HAD THEY UNDERSTAND AND ALSO IT HELPS BUSINESSES, I THINK, BECAUSE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH CAN CALL AND SAY “YOU KNOW, WE NOTICE THAT YOU DON’T HAVE FACE SHIELDS AND WE KNOW YOU WANT TO FOR ALL YOUR EMPLOYEES PERHAPS IT WOULD BE A REALLY GOOD IDEA” AND WE DON’T HAVE TO KNOW HOW WE KNOW THEY DON’T HAVE FACE SHIELDS SO WE WANT TO PARTNER WITH ALL STAKEHOLDERS TO CONTAIN THE VIRUS I KNOW MANY BUSINESSES HAVE EXPRESSED OPPOSITION BUT I HONESTLY THINK THEY DON’T NEED TO BE AS FRIGHTENED ABOUT IT AS THEY SEEM TO BE BECAUSE THIS IS SIMPLY A WAY TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT EVERYBODY COMPLIES THEY CAN STAY OPEN THEIR WORKERS AND THEIR CUSTOMERS CAN STAY HEALTHY AND WE’VE ALSO ASKED DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH TO CONDUCT LISTENING SESSIONS WITH BUSINESSES TO GET THEIR FEEDBACK SO ALL IN ALL I THINK THIS WOULD BE A VERY POSITIVE MOVE FOR THE COUNTY AND HELP KEEP OUR CASE NUMBERS DOWN THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR KUEHL RAFAEL CAR BA HALL WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS >> GOOD AFTERNOON, MADAME CHAIR AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD MY NAME IS RAFAEL, THE NEWLY MINTED ACTING DIRECTOR OF THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AND BUSINESS AFFAIRS THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR MARK RIDLEY-THOMAS AND SUPERVISOR SHEILA KUEHL FOR AUTHORING THIS VERY TIMELY AND IMPORTANT MOTION THANK YOU FOR INCLUDING THE C.B.A. AND FOR AN OPPORTUNITY OF PLAYING A KEY ROLE IN THIS THE PANDEMIC IS OF HE NOR MUZ AND HAD ASPECTS ON OF OUR LIVES ONE THING COVID IS HOW MANY WE DEPEND ON ESSENTIAL WORKERS AND VIVIDLY HIGHLIGHTED THE RISK THEY HAVE EVERY DAY ALTHOUGH MILLIONS OF JOBS DO JOBS THAT CANNOT BE WORKPLACE TRANSMISSIONS ACCOUNT FOR ALMOST HALF OF CASES AND THESE IMPACTS ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY FELT BY BLACK AND LATIN EX WORKERS, WORKERS OF COLOR, WOMEN AND LGBTQ ARE GENERALLY BY THE ECONOMIC JUNIOR TUN BROUGHT ON THIS PANDEMIC THIS INCLUDES IMMIGRANT NONENGLISH SPEAKING WORKERS FOOD PRODUCTION DOMESTIC SERVICES JANITORIAL GARMENT AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRIES THEY ARE PARTICULARLY VULNERABLE DUE TO INCREASING SCARCITY OF STABLE JOBS YOUR BOARD HAS CONSISTENTLY RECOGNIZED A NEED PROTECT AND SUPPORT ESSENTIAL WORKERS AND TODAY’S AGENDA IS AN EXAMPLE OF YOUR BOARD PROTECTING OUR WORKERS NOT ONLY DOES THIS INCLUDE THE ITEM BUT 24 WHICH ESTABLISHES THE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNSELCIES WHICH DCBA HAS BEEN PUBLICLY SUPPORTING OUR PUBLIC HEALTH PARTNERS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO YOUR BOARD HAS ALSO IMPLEMENTED A PAID SICK LEAVE ORDINANCE THAT BECAME EFFECTIVE IN APRIL WHICH PROVIDES UP TO 80 HOURS OF LEAVE FOR FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES THAT ARE UNABLE TO WORK OR TELEWORK DUE TO COVID-19 AS YOU KNOW, DCBA ALREADY HAS THE MINIMUM WAGE ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM THAT INVESTIGATES AND ENFORCES VIOLATIONS IN UNINCORPORATED JUST YESTERDAY TWO LARGE FOOD CHAINS THAT PUT 350,000 OF WAGES IN THE POCKETS OF LOCAL ESSENTIAL WORKERS HOWEVER, THE DEPARTMENT IS LIMITED IN ITS ABILITY TO INVESTIGATE OUR TYPES OF WORKER ABUSE

THIS IS THE LIMITED AUTHORITY UNDER EXISTING ORDINANCES DCBA HELPS MEDIATE DISPUTES BETWEEN BUSINESS OWNERS AND THEIR EMPLOYEES THROUGH OUR DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROGRAM AND WE ARE PREPARING TO LAUNCH AN IMMIGRANT ESSENTIAL WORKERS INITIATIVE THANK YOU OUR OFFICE OF IMMIGRANT AFFAIRS DCBA WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORTS THIS MOTION AND IS READY TO WORK WITH OUR PARTNERS TO ADVANCE AND SUPPORT THIS EFFORT THANK YOU >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU, RAFAEL DR. FERRER, CAN YOU SAY SOMETHING? WE’LL GIVE YOU TWO MINUTES? >> DR. BARBARA FERRAR: THANK YOU SO MUCH, SUPERVISOR KUEHL AND SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS, AND ALL OF THE BOARD MEMBERS FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP ON THIS OPPORTUNITY AND I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK ON THESE MOTIONS BOTH OF WHICH ARE EFFORTS TO PROMOTE WORKER PROTECTIONS BY CREATING THE OFFICE OF LABOR EQUITY AND WORKER PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS ALTHOUGH WE’RE CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC THAT WE’RE MAKING SOME PROGRESS AND SLOWING THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, OUR POSITIVITY RATE IS DOWN, WE’RE REDUCING HOSPITALIZATIONS, AND WE’VE ALL BEEN WORKING WITH OUR BOARD TO MAKE FURTHER GAINS WE ARE VERY MUCH AWARE THAT THIS PANDEMIC HAS DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED MANY OF OUR WORKERS, PARTICULARLY THOSE WORKERS WHO ARE DEEMED ESSENTIAL AT THE BEGINNING OF THE VIRUS AND WHO ARE NOW UNABLE TO TELEWORK AND NEED TO ACTUALLY GO INTO THEIR WORK SITES EVERY DAY BUT WE’VE LEARNED A LOT SINCE FEBRUARY AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE’VE LEARNED IS THAT PUBLIC HEALTH DIRECTIVES CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE AT PREVENTING THE TRANSMISSION OF THE VIRUS BUT ONLY WHEN THEY’RE IMPLEMENTED SOCIAL DISTANCING, WEARING FACE COVERINGS, DISINFECTING WORK SITES AND WORKSTATIONS, REGULAR HAND WASHING, AND THE AVAILABILITY OF GOOD INFECTION CONTROL OUR PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES THAT ARE NOT EQUALLY FOLLOWED AT EVERYBODY’S WORKPLACES AND THIS DOES, IN FACT, CONTRIBUTE GREATLY NOT ONLY TO OUTBREAKS THAT ARE VERY VISIBLE BUT ALSO TO THE TRANSMISSION THAT HAPPENS IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND IN OUR HOMES AND THIS TRANSMISSION INCREASES THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ILL, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO NEED TO BE HOSPITALIZED, AND, UNFORTUNATELY, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE DIED OUR OUTBREAK DATA TELLS US THAT THIS HAS BEEN PARTICULARLY PROBLEMATIC IN SECTORS LIKE MANUFACTURING, WAREHOUSING, AND GROCERY STORES TO HELP ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM, YOUR BOARD DIRECTED US TO EXPLORE A NEW INITIATIVE THAT COULD INCREASE COMPLIANCE WITH OUR PUBLIC HEALTH DIRECTORS AND SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 IN THE WORKPLACE THIS INITIATIVE WOULD CREATE UBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS AND THEY’RE COMPRISED OF EMPLOYEES AT THEIR WORK SITES THAT CAN HELP MONITOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR DIRECTORS AND ALSO HELP PROVIDE APPROPRIATE TRAINING TO WORKERS SO THAT WORKERS ARE IN THE BEST POSITION TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEIR WORKPLACES ARE AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE IN MANY WORKPLACES, THERE COULD BE SIGNIFICANT BARRIERS FOR EMPLOYEES WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN THESE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS AND WE SUPPORT THE IDEA THAT THESE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS CAN, IN FACT, GAIN TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT FROM TRUSTED THIRD-PARTY ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS WORKER CENTERS AND COMMUNITY-BASED GROUPS THAT WOULD GO THROUGH A RIGOROUS TRAINING PROGRAM WITH US AND THEN BE CERTIFIED BY US SO THAT THEY CAN EDUCATE AND SUPPORT THE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS ON HOW TO MONITOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR DIRECTIVES THIRD-PARTY COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS COULD PROVIDE THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO EMPLOYERS WHO HAVE DESPERATELY REQUESTED ASSISTANCE IN MAKING SURE THAT THEY HAVE STRATEGIES TO KEEP THEIR WORKPLACES AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE WE UNDERSTAND THAT SOME BUSINESS OWNERS ARE CONCERNED THAT THIS MOTION COULD NEGATIVELY IMPACT THEIR BUSINESSES AT A TIME WHEN THEY’RE ALREADY STRUGGLING TO GET BACK ON THEIR FEETED IN MIST OF THIS PANDEMIC AND WE EMPATHIZE WITH THESE CONCERNS BUT WE ALSO ARE VERY CLEAR THAT PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS ARE INTENDED TO HELP BUSINESSES STAY OPEN, KEEP COVID-19 OUT OF WORKPLACES, AND KEEP EMPLOYEES AND THE COMMUNITY SAFE AND WE NEED EVERY BUSINESS IN THE COUNTY TO BE PART OF A BATTLE WHERE WE’RE WINNING AGAINST THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 THIS IS THE ONLY WAY WE KEEP OUR ECONOMY OPEN AND WE PUT PEOPLE BACK TO WORK, PARTICULARLY AS WE MOVE INTO THE FALL AND FLU SEASON PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS WILL HELP BUSINESSES DO JUST THAT WE THINK THEY’LL HELP CREATE A CULTURE WHERE IT’S THE NORM TO SPEAK UP AND CAN ENCOURAGE EMPLOYEES, PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS TO WORK WITH MANAGERS AND WITH OPERATORS TO FIND APPROPRIATE SOLUTIONS AND WE DO WANT TO HEAR FROM BUSINESSES ABOUT THEIR CONCERNS AS WELL AS FROM LABOR AND WORKER

ADVOCATE PARTNERS SO TODAY’S MOTION DOES CALL FOR LISTENING SESSIONS SO THAT WE CAN HEAR HOW TO BEST SUCCESSFULLY IMPLEMENT THIS PROGRAM WE HAVE NOTED THAT WE NEED ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO MAKE THIS WORK POSSIBLE WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THE BOARD AND WITH THE C.E.O. SO THAT WE CAN COLLECTIVELY CONTINUE TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 THANK YOU VERY MUCH >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THAT YOU SUPERVISOR HAHN? >> SUP. JANICE HAHN: OH, THANKS I WAS GOING TO SPEAK ON 24 AND I WANT TO THANK SUPERVISOR KUEHL AND RIDLEY-THOMAS FOR THIS MOTION AND I THINK IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE I THINK COMPLIANCE WITH OUR PUBLIC HEALTH PROTOCOLS HAS BEEN A CHALLENGE FOR EACH SECTOR THAT HAS OPENED SOME HAVE STRUGGLES MORE THAN OTHERS AND SOME HAVE CHOSEN O, FRANKLY, IGNORE OR DOWNPLAY THEM AND IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE CONTINUE TO HAVE MONITORING OF THESE SECTORS BUT AS WE KNOW, PUBLIC HEALTH CAN’T MONITOR EVERY SINGLE WORKPLACE SO FORMING THESE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS I THINK OFFERS A GOOD SOLUTION THAT WILL KEEP OUR WORKERS CONNECTED TO OUR DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH FOR THE DURATION OF THIS PANDEMIC AND I THINK THAT WILL GIVE US AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE MORE PROACTIVE RATHER THAN TO REACTING TO THESE OUTBREAKS WHICH WE HAVE SEEN AND I KNOW THAT EMPOWERING OUR WORKERS TO KNOW THEIR RIGHTS DURING ALL THIS IS IMPORTANT I DO KNOW THAT I HAVE BEEN INUNDATED WITH EMAILS AND CALLS FROM THE BUSINESS SECTOR WHO ARE A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THESE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS I WAS REALLY SURPRISED AT THE NUMBER OF EMAILS I GOT IN OPPOSITION TO THIS BUT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING BACK ON THE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN AND I’M ASSUMING THAT WE WILL BE DOING SOME OUTREACH TO OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY AS WE MOVE FORWARD TO PUT THE FINAL TOUCHES ON WHAT THESE PUBLIC HEALTH COUNCILS WILL ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE OKAY THANK YOU >> SUP.

RIDLEY-THOMAS: YES, THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR, COLLEAGUES AS THE ULTIMATE STEWARD OF MEASURE H FUNDS, THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES TAKES VERY SERIOUSLY THE CHANGE AND THE CHARGE OF ACCOUNTABILITY OVERSIGHT AND ACCOUNTABILITY ARE EMBEDDED INTO THE LAW THAT CREATED MEASURE H AND THE PUBLIC SHOULD HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE SYSTEMS DESIGNED TO TRACK PERFORMANCE AFTER THE VOTE IS PASSED, MEASURE H, THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES TOOK IMMEDIATE STEPS TO ENSURE THAT THOSE ENTRUSTED TO ADMINISTER THOSE DOLLARS WOULD DO SO IN A TRANSPARENT MANNER AND THAT PERFORMANCE WOULD BE CLOSELY TRACKED THAT’S WHY EVEN BEFORE MEASURE H REVENUES STARTED FLOWING IN, THE COUNTY AUDITOR-CONTROLLER REVIEWED THE FINANCIAL OPERATIONS OF THE LOS ANGELES HOMELESS SERVICE AUTHORITY AND FOLLOWING THAT INITIAL REVIEW, I AUTHORED A MOTION IN APRIL OF 2018, WITH SUPERVISOR HAHN, ASKING THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER TO EVALUATE WHAT MORE NEEDED TO BE DONE NOW, WE KNOW OR GH OR WE KNEW TT THIS BILL WAS A BIG LIFT IN THAT LAHSA WAS NEVER RESOURCED OR DESIGNED TO CARRY THE LOAD THAT WE NOW HAVE COME TO EXPECT, BUT LAST WEEK THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER RELEASED HIS MOST RECENT REVIEW OF LAHSA’S DATA MANAGEMENT FOR FISCAL YEAR ’18/’19 AND SEVERAL DEFICIENCIES WERE IDENTIFIED AND LAHSA HAS TAKEN CORRECTIVE ACTIONS TO REMEDY THE CONCERNS IDENTIFIED AND TODAY’S MOTION WILL ASK FOR A WRITTEN REPORT BACK IN 30 DAYS DETAILING ALL THE EFFORTS TO STRENGTHEN LAHSA’S SYSTEMS BUT THIS JOB IS ONLY GETTING BIGGER, ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE NEED TO EXPAND RESOURCES ACROSS THE COUNTY TO MITIGATE THE DUAL PANDEMICS OF HOMELESSNESS AND COVID-19 ACCURATE AND RELIABLE DATA ARE ESSENTIAL TO MAKING SURE WE ARE MAKING THE MOST OF OUR RESOURCES GIVEN THE SCALE OF THE HOMELESS CRISIS AND LAHSA HAS WORKED TO DO OBVIOUSLY AND IT WAS CREATED BEFORE HOMELESSNESS REACHED CRISIS PROPORTIONS

AND WHILE IT HAS BULKED UP PERSONNEL AND SCALED UP OPERATIONS IN RECENT YEARS, ITS GOVERNANCE MODEL HAS REMAINED STAGNANT SO I THINK IT’S TIMELY TO EXPLORE NEW GOVERNANCE MODEL, MADAME CHAIR AND COLLEAGUES AND IN ARE EASTERNEST IS WHY I HAD DO THAT WITH THE — QUALITATIVELY BETTER OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS AND I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE DO SO AND WITH YOUR PERMISSION, MADAME CHAIR, I’LL TURN IT OVER TO OUR COAUTHOR AND IF THERE’S COMMENTS YOU WISH TO HEAR FROM THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER APPARENTLY THEY’RE STANDING BY, THE CHIEF DEPUTY NAMELY OSCAR VALDEZ BUT I THINK THE POINT IS BEING MADE HERE PRETTY CLEARLY AND, MADAME CHAIR, AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD ON THIS ITEM AND I’LL TURN IT OVER TO MY COAUTHOR WITH YOUR CONSENT >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: YES, SUPERVISOR HAHN AND THEN SUPERVISOR KUEHL >> SUP. JANICE HAHN: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR AND THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS AS YOU KNOW, I HAVE REALLY HAVE NOT BEEN SHY ABOUT MY CRITICISM OF LAHSA AND ITS CURRENT STRUCTURE AND I JUST FEEL LIKE IT’S NOT WORKING AS WELL AS NEED IT TO IT’S MY OPINION THAT SOMETIMES IT IS TOO BUREAUCRATIC, IT’S TOO SLOW, IT’S TOO RESISTANT TO CHANGE AND IT’S NOT JUST ME, IT’S MANY OF MY COMMUNITIES AND CITIES HAVE COMPLAINED THAT LAHSA’S NOT RESPONSIVE TO THEM THERE’S ALWAYS THAT SENSE THAT THEY’RE MORE RESPONSIVE TO THE NEEDS OF THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES SO I LIKE IT THAT THIS MOTION WILL ASK OUR STAFF, OUR COUNTY STAFF TO COME BACK TO US WITH RECOMMENDATIONS ON ALTERNATIVE MODELS OR STRUCTURES THAT COULD ADMINISTER OUR HOMELESS FUNDS IN A MORE EFFICIENT WAY AND I BELIEVE THAT WE NOT ONLY OWE THAT TO OUR TAXPAYERS WHO HAVE GRACIOUSLY BEEN GIVING US THEIR MONEY, THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY TO HELP SOLVE THIS PROBLEM, BUT ALSO TO THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE STILL SLEEPING ON OUR STREETS WE HAVE TO PROVIDE EFFECTIVE AND RAPID SERVICES TO GET PEOPLE OFF THE STREETS AND I KNOW EVERYONE WORKS HARD I KNOW WE PROBABLY EVERY YEAR WE TALK ABOUT HOUSING MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER BEFORE BUT WHEN WE GET THAT ANNUAL COUNT AND IT HAS GONE UP, IT IS JUST — IT HURTS MY HEART AND SO I’M HOPING THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO CONSIDER SOME THINGS IN THIS REPORT BACK ONE WOULD BE MAYBE BREAKING UP LAHSA AND FORMING TWO ENTITIES, ONE THAT SERVES THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES ALONE AND THEN ONE THAT SERVED THE REST OF THE COUNTY OR I’D LIKE TO LOOK AT MAYBE A SUBREGIONAL SYSTEM WITH SEPARATE HOMELESS SERVICE AGENCIES CREATED FOR THE CITY OF L.A., FOR THE SOUTH BAY, FOR SAN GABRIEL VALLEY TGATEWAY AREA, THE WEST SIDE AND THE ANTELOPE VALLEY AND IF WE ALL DECIDE THAT WE LIKE KEEPING LAHSA IN PLACE, WE COULD STRUCTURE THE CURRENT COMMISSION TO LOOK MORE LIKE OUR METRO BOARD WHERE THERE IS MORE REGIONAL REPRESENTATION THAT COULD BE ADDED AS WELL AS OUR DIRECTORS OF PUBLIC HEALTH, MENTAL HEALTH AND HEALTH SERVICES AND I KNOW, WE ALL KNOW THAT I ANY TIME WE’RE LOOKING AT CHANGING THE STRUCTURE OF LAHSA, THAT’S GOING TO BE SUBJECT TO THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES AGREEING SINCE LAHSA IS A RESULT OF A SETTLEMENT OF A LAWSUIT AND OF BOTH THE CITY AND THE COUNTY AS WELL AS H.U.D. HAVE TO BE INVOLVED IN ANY CHANGES WE MAKE SO, BUT I STILL THINK IT’S A GOOD TIME TO PUT EVERYTHING ON THE TABLE FOR CONSIDERATION BECAUSE I DON’T THINK WHAT WE HAVE NOW IS WORKING, AGAIN, AS WELL AS IT NEEDS TO WE’RE LIVING IN A CRISIS THAT, AGAIN, UNFORTUNATELY, HAS BEEN ACCELERATED BY THE PANDEMIC AND THIS PANDEMIC HAS BEEN HORRIBLE IN ITSELF BUT SOME OF THE CONSEQUENCES HAVE ALSO BEEN — IT’S SHOWN A LIGHT ON SOME OTHER INADEQUACIES, INEQUITIES, AND WEAKNESSES THAT WE HAVE IN OUR COUNTY’S SAFETY NET THAT HAS ONLY BEEN ACCELERATED BY THIS PANDEMIC SO THIS IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS THAT I BELIEVE WE HAVE TO MEET AND WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR DOLLARS THAT WE’RE INVESTING ACTUALLY IT’S INVESTED IN AN AGENCY OR A MODEL THAT GETS THE JOB DONE SO THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR AND THANK YOU, MR. RIDLEY-THOMAS >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU

SUPERVISOR KUEHL? KUEHL THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR I WANT TO SAY AT THE OUTSIDE I WILL SUPPORT THE MOTION BUT I HAVE A NUMBER OF COMMENTS ABOUT IT BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT I AN FREE WITH ALL OF THE STATEMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE ABOUT LAHSA TODAY IT’S FINE TO HAVE A REPORT BACK, I THINK, ABOUT THE GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE BUT I NOTICE THAT LAHSA WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE DEPARTMENT’S REPORTING BACK AND I THINK THAT TAKEN A GOOD DEAL OF THEY HAVE- RESPONSIBILITY I SHARED ORIGINALLY SOME OF MY COLLEAGUE’S CONCERNS ABOUT THE FINDINGS IN THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER REPORT BUT I AM VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THE CORRECTION PLAN THAT LAHSA PUT IN PLACE VERY QUICKLY TAUDITED REVIEWED OUTCOMES ONLY DURING THE PERIOD THAT LAHSA WAS TRANSITIONING THEIR DATA SYSTEM IN FISCAL YEAR ’18/’19 AND MY UNDERSTANDING IS THE DATA SYSTEM THEY’RE NOW USING IS A SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT THEY HAVE MUCH STRONGER SYSTEMS IN PLACE TODAY AND THEY’RE ALSO WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER TO IMPLEMENT ALL OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS SO, GIVEN THE FACT THAT THE AUDIT RESULTED IN THE OUTCOME WE WANTED, WHICH IS TO HAVE THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE PROCEDURES TO RECORD OUTCOMES, I’M NOT SURE THAT WE NEED TO ASSUME THAT THERE SHOULD BE CHANGES IN LAHSA GOVERNANCE SO I WOULD ASK THAT ONE OF THE CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT LAHSA GOVERNANCE BE COMPARING IT TO WHAT WE HAVE NOW IN TERMS OF WHETHER THERE ACTUALLY ARE ANY CONCERNS OR PROBLEMS I THINK THAT WOULD BE AN HONEST REFLECTION BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, HELPING PEOPLE PREVENT AND EXIT HOMELESSNESS IS A COMPLICATED AND MESSY BUSINESS PEOPLE’S LIVES ARE MESSY A COUNTY WITH 88 CITIES INCLUDING THE CITY OF L.A. THAT ALL NEED TO WORK TOGETHER IS MESSY A PRIVATE HOUSING MARKET, WHICH IS BOTTOM-LINE-DRIVEN THAT DOESN’T PROVIDE HOUSING FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WHO CAN’T AFFORD WHAT’S OUT THERE IS MORE THAN MESSY IT’S A MESS AND DESPITE HOW INCREDIBLY COMPLICATED THE WORK IS, WE’RE SIX MONTHS INTO A GLOBAL PANDEMIC WHICH BY ALL ACCOUNTS LAHSA HAS ACTUALLY PERFORMED BETTER THAN ANY OF US WOULD HAVE IMAGINED I KNOW THAT MY COLLEAGUES ARE SHARING MY PRIDE OSM THE SUCCESS OF PROJECT ROOM KEY AND THE LOW RATES OF VIRUS TRANSMISSION AMONG PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS THAN SUCCESS IS IN PART LAHSA’S SUCCESS SO I APPRECIATE THE A.C.’S REPORT I APPRECIATE LAHSA’S IMPLEMENTATION OF THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS I WANT TO ASSURE MY COLLEAGUES I KNOW WE’RE ALL ON THE SAME SIDE, WANTING THE BEST OUTCOMES POSSIBLE FOR THOSE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS SO I’LL SUPPORT THE CONSIDERATIONS BUT I WANTED TO STRONGLY STATE MY FAITH IN LAHSA AND ITS LEADERSHIP AND A GOOD JOB THEY’VE DONE IN THESE VERY DIFFICULT AND UNPRECEDENTED CIRCUMSTANCES AND HOPE THAT THE CURRENT TWOANCE STRUCTURE WILL BE WILL BE CONSIDERED AS ONE OF THE ALTERNATIVES SO THAT WE GET A FULL PICTURE THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU SUPERVISOR SOLIS? >> SUP. HILDA SOLIS: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR SO MUCH HAS ALREADY BEEN SAID BUT I’D LIKE TO THANK SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS AND HAHN FOR BRINGING THE MOTION BEFORE US TO ONCE AGAIN HIGHLIGHT THE NEED TO REVIEW AND MAYBE REIMAGINE THE GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE OF LAHSA IN ORDER TO IMPROVE UPON ITS ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY IN RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR OUR HOMELESS SERVICES AND OUR DELIVERY SYSTEM AND MUCH HAS ALREADY BEEN SAID BUT I, TOO, BELIEVE THAT THERE IS SOME IMPORTANCE IN LOOKING AT WHAT THAT GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE LOOKS LIKE IT IS, AFTER ALL, OVER 30 YEARS OLD AND WE HAVE CHANGED DRAMATICALLY WE HAVE MANY SMALL CITIES THAT ARE NOT AT THIS TIME PARTICIPATING IN THE MANNER THAT THEY SHOULD AND THANK GOODNESS THAT THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF CHANGE ALREADY BUT MORE IS NEEDED THROUGH LAHSA SO I LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING BACK THE REPORT SO THAT WE CAN LOOK AT THE — LOOK AT HOW THE GOVERNANCE MODEL MIGHT BE VIEWED AND I KNOW THAT LAHSA, THEIR AD HOC COMMITTEE ON GOVERNANCE HAS SECURED A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AND WELL-RESPECTED CONSULTANT AND A HOMELESS EXPERT TO HELP CONDUCT A SIMILAR INTERNAL REVIEW WHICH I SUPPORT SO I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING BACK ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS AND FROM THE INPUT FROM OUR VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS, AS WELL THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU AND I ALSO WANT TO THANK SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS AND SUPERVISOR HAHN FOR PLACING THIS MOTION ON THE AGENDA TODAY

I ALSO WANT TO THANK OUR AUDITOR-CONTROLLER FOR THEIR ONGOING WORK TO PROVIDE OVERSIGHT AND ACCOUNTABILITY, NOT JUST FOR OUR HOMELESS SERVICES SYSTEM BUT FOR ALL SYSTEMS SUPPORTED BY THE TAXPAYER DOLLAR THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT THE FIRST CONVERSATION THAT WE’VE HAD ABOUT LAHSA’S GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE OR PERFORMANCE AS A PRIMARY OVERSEER OF THE FUNDS FOR OUR HOMELESS SERVICES SYSTEM AND I’M SURE IT WON’T BE A LAST I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US TO ALWAYS, ALWAYS DISCUSS WHAT WE CAN DO BETTER THE PASSAGE OF MERCK YOUR HPROVIDED A MOMENT FOR OUR EFFORTS TO COMBAT HOABLES HERE IN L.A. COUNT YOU BUT IT ALSO MARKED A MASSIVE INFLUX OF NEW RESOURCES INTO SUPPORTIVE SERVICES AND HOUSING SEEMINGLY OVERNIGHT AND WE LEARNED THAT LAHSA DIDN’T HAVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE AT THAT MOMENT BUT THEY BEGAN TO BUILD IT ON THE GROUND PROVIDERS WHO SAID INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES IN ENDING THEIR HOMELESSNESS ONCE AND FOR ALL WERE PROVIDED WITH RESOURCES THAT WERE NEEDED IN ORDER TO DO THIS TASK THE SU SUDDEN GROWTH OF CAPACITY WAS A HUGE CHALLENGE FOR LAHSA AND THERE CERTAINLY WERE GROWING PAINS AS THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER’S REPORT SHOWS, THERE WERE ONLY OWNGOING ISSUES IN DATA AND PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT FOLLOWING MEASURE H. PASSAGE BUT IT ALSO SHOWS THAT HIGHER LEVEL BRAND EFFICIENCIES HAVE BEEN RESOLVED SO I WANT TO TAKE MY HAT OFF TO LAHSA FOR MAKING THOSE CHANGES AND MAKING THOSE REFORMS I STILL SHARE CONCERNS ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT THE STRONGEST SYSTEMS ARE IN PLACE TO ENSURE THE TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE SPENT WITH FIDELITY THAT’S WHY I SUBMITTED THE MOTION WITH SUPERVISOR SOLIS IN FEBRUARY OF THIS YEAR TO INITIATE A HOLISTIC REVIEW OF LAHSA’S GOVERNANCE STRUCTURES OUR C.E.O. HAS BEEN WORKING WITH THE AUDITOR-CONTROLLER AND LAHSA ITSELF TO REVIEW EXISTING STRUCTURES AND DEVELOP RECOMMENDATIONS FOR POTENTIAL PIVOTS SHORTLY INTO THIS WORK, HOWEVER, A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS NECESSARILY BECAME THE FOCUS OF OUR TIME, EFFORTS AND RESOURCES ACROSS MOST SECTORS AND I ECHO THE COMMENTS MADE REGARDING THE WORK THAT LAHSA DID WITH THE PROJECT ROOM KEY AND JUST OVERALL AS WE WORKED THROUGH THIS PANDEMIC LAHSA QUICKLY ROSE TO THE TOP AS A LEADER OF EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR THOSE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS AND SOON AFTER THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THAT EMERGENCY RESPONSE BEGAN, HEIDI MARSTON WAS FORMALLY HIRED AS THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF LAHSA I’VE GOT TO SAY THAT UNDER HEIDI’S LEADERSHIP, I’VE BEEN EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH LAHSA’S PERFORMANCE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC SCALING UP OUR TESTING EFFORTS BOTH IN OUR SHELTERS AND OUT IN THE ENCAMPMENTS ACROSS THE COUNTY ARE A MUST BRINGING MORE THAN 3500 UNITS OF EMERGENCY HOUSING ONLINE THROUGH PROJECT ROOM KEY INITIATIVE FOR THOSE MOST VULNERABLE AMONG OUR HOMELESS POPULATION THESE HAVE BEEN HERCULEAN TASKS AND WITHOUT SOME OF THE NEW STRUCTURES THAT HEIDI HAS PUT IN PLACE, SINCE HER TENURE BEGAN, I TRULY BELIEVE THAT THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON OUR FAMILIES WITH HOMELESSNESS WOULD HAVE BEEN DEVASTATING I WANT TO THANK HEIDI PUBLICLY FOR TAKING CHARGE LEADING THIS EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND FOR SETTING UP STRUCTURES AT LAHSA THAT WILL ULTIMATELY LEAD TO LONG TERM SUCCESSES THAT BEING SAID, I’M PROUD TO SUPPORT THE SPIRIT OF THE MOTION TODAY TO BRING A FOCUS BACK TO GOVERNANCE I BELIEVE THIS MOTION MOVES IN PARALLEL TO THE WORK THAT SUPERVISOR SOLIS AND I INITIATED BACK IN FEBRUARY WE HOPE TO HEAR BACK WITH RECOMMENDATIONS IN DECEMBER OF THIS YEAR OR JANUARY OF NEXT AND I WILL SAY THAT WHEN SUPERVISOR HAHN TALKED ABOUT, YOU KNOW, THE OTHER AREAS WITHIN THE COUNTY, I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO TACKLE IS THE PERCEPTION THAT LAHSA IS CITY, L.A. CITY-CENTRIC AND NOT SENSITIVE TO ALL AREAS OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND WHETHER IT’S PERCEPTION OR FACT, I THINK WE NEED TO ENSURE THAT OUR CITIES KNOW THAT THE MONEY BEING BROUGHT IN THROUGH MEASURE H. IS GOING TO BE EQUITABLY DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY BASED ON THE HOMELESS NEEDS OF EACH OF OUR REGIONS SO WITH THAT, I AGAIN THANK SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS AND HAHN FOR BRINGING THIS MOTION FORWARD SUPERVISORS RIDLEY-THOMAS AND HAHN DO YOU HAVE ANY CLOSING STATEMENTS ON THIS? >> SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: MOVE IT AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS >> SUP.

HELD THIS ITEM >> SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: MADAME CHAIR, IT’S A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD HERE I THINK THAT THE LATEST ATTEMPT BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO COMPROMISE THE PUBLIC’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT IS GALLING AND ALL OF US WITH MERE MONTHS BEFORE A GENERAL ELECTION THE POSTMASTER GENERAL DECIDED TO IMPLEMENT CHANGES TO THE U.S POSTAL SERVICE THAT HE ACKNOWLEDGED WOULD RESULT IN SERVICE REDUCTIONS IMAGINE THAT AND THEN HE LATER CANCELED SOME OF THE CHANGES AFTER A PUBLIC OUTCRY AND THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE HAS ALREADY REMOVED MANY MAILBOXES FROM SERVICE SITES ACROSS SEVERAL STATES CALIFORNIA OBVIOUSLY IS NO EXCEPTION THERE THESE PERSISTENT ATTACKS, MADAME CHAIR, COLLEAGUES, CRIPPLING OF THE POST OFFICES A AND AN ATTACK ON ONE OF THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASPECTS OF OUR DEMOCRACY MAIL DELIVERY IS A BASIC SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AND TO SABOTAGE THIS SERVICE DYSFUNCTION IN THE HEART OF THE PANDEMIC SO THAT PEOPLE CANNOT VOTE SAFELY BY MAIL ARE PUT AT HEALTH RISK BECAUSE THEY CAN’T GET THEIR MEDS IS A FORM OF CRUELTY AND CANNOT BE TOLERATED I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT THIS WE WOULD NOT HONOR THE LEGACY AND MEMORIALIZE THE WORK OF CONGRESSMAN JOHN LEWIS AND THE REVEREND C.T. VIVIAN, REVEREND JOE LOWRRY IF WE ALLOW THE POSTMASTER AND THE ADMINISTRATION TO DESTROY THE VERY INSTITUTION FOR WHICH THEY FOUGHT ALL OF THEIR LIVES THIS WILL MEAN THAT WE MUST CONTINUE TO LIFT OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD ON THIS ISSUE AND FIGHT FOR EVERY CUT THAT IS MADE TO BE RESTORED IN ITS EASTBOUND ENTIR THIS WILL MEAN STANDING UP TOGETHER IN THE INTEREST OF JUSTICE AND DEMONSTRATE THE BEST OF WHAT AMERICAN EXPERIENCE MEANS WHEN WE DO AS DR. KING SAYS ALWAYS THE RIGHT TIME TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND AS A NATION, WE FOUGHT TOO HARD TO HAVE OUR VOICES NOT HEARD ON ELECTION DAY WE SIMPLY CANNOT ALLOW THE POSTMASTER GENERAL OR THE PRESIDENT OR ANYONE ELSE TO SUPPRESS THE RIGHT TO VOTE BY MAIL AND UNDERI MEAN SUCH A FUNDAMENTAL PILLAR OF OUR DEMOCRACY IT’S IMPERATIVE THAT WE ENSURE THAT VOTERS CAN CAST THEIR BALLOTS WITHOUT HAVING TO GO TO A POLLING STATION DURING A PANDEMIC IF THEY SO CHOOSE DEMOCRACY IS PRESCRIPTIVE IN THIS SENSE IT IS ABOUT THE PROMISE OF DEMOCRACY MADAME CHAIR, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO YOU FOR ISSUING THE EXECUTIVE ORDER TO GET THIS WORK DONE BECAUSE TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE TO THAT EXTENT, I WISH TO SAY THANK YOU THAT CONCLUDES MY REMARKS >> SUP.

RIDLEY-THOMAS: MADAME CHAIR, I WANT TO SAY THANKS TO DR. LUCAS FOR THE WORK THAT HE’S DONE FOR REVISING THE DEPARTMENT’S POLICY ON SECURITY HOLDS THE FINDING OF FACT OR OBJECTIVE INVESTIGATIONS AS WELL AS MAINTAINING THE PUBLIC’S TRUST IS A CRITICAL PART OF ENSURING THAT JUSTICE IS DONE GAINING THE PUBLIC’S CONFIDENCE REQUIRES A DEGREE OF TRANSPARENCY THAT’S NONNEGOTIABLE AND DETERMINING WHAT INVESTIGATIVE RECORDS TO DISCLOSE AND WHEN IS OFTEN A DIFFICULT DECISION SO THE DEPARTMENT OF THE MEDAL EXAMINER CORONER HAS REVISED ITS POLICIES GOVERNING THE USE OF SECURITY HOLDS IN A WAY THAT ENHANCES TRANSPARENCY, BRINGS

INTO COMPLIANCE THOSE THINGS THAT ARE COHERENT WITH STATE LAW, AND MORE INTENTIONALLY STRIKES A BALANCE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT NEEDS OF INVESTIGATIVE WORK AND I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM OUR CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER CORPS NER, DR. JONATHAN LUCAS ON THIS ISSUE THERE ARE JUST A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT SEEM TO ME TO BE IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF AN OVERVIEW OF THE REVISED POLICY AND HOW THE POLICY HOLDS ARE JUSTIFIED AND DO NOT LAST INDEFINITELY AND, FINALLY, HOW THE POLICY WILL ENSURE THE INTEGRITY OF THE INVESTIGATIONS IS PROTECTED MADAME CHAIR, THAT CONCLUDES THE QUESTIONS THAT I’D HOPE THAT DLUK AS WILL ADDRESS AND WITH YOUR PERMISSION >> SUP.

KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU, DR.

AND I WANT TO THANK YOU, DR. LUCAS, FOR ENGAGING WITH OUR SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT AND OUR POLICE CHIEFS ASSOCIATION IN THAT REGARD THESE CHANGES BRING US INTO COMPLIANCE WITH STATE LAW LEAVING DISCRETION FOR HOLDS ON AUTOPSY RESULTS RELATED TO LAW ENFORCEMENT FORCE INCIDENTS TO OUR MEDICAL EXAMINER THIS DOES NOT PROHIBIT HOLDS FOR LEGITIMATE REASONS BUT THOSE REASON MUST BE JUSTIFIED AS ENDANGERING SAFETY OR INDIVIDUALS OR SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE INVESTIGATION AND DR. LUCAS, BASED ON YOUR TRACK RECORD, I HAVE NO DOUBTS IN YOUR ABILITY TO BE JUDICIOUS IN MAKING THESE DECISIONS SO, AGAIN, THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS, FOR BRINGING THIS UP FOR DISCUSSION DO ANY OF MY COLLEAGUES, ANYONE ELSE LIKE TO SPEAK ON THIS? OKAY SEEING NONE, THIS REPORT IS A RECEIVE AND FILE SO WITH THAT, WE WILL NOW GO ON TO ITEM NUMBER 68-I SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS? >> SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: I THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR, COLLEAGUES PRISH THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE A LIGHT ON THIS CRITICAL MATTER FOR TOO LONG, WE ACCEPTED THE STATUS QUO WE HAVE NOT SUFFICIENTLY CHALLENGED INCESSANT DEMANDS THAT INVESTIGATIONS REMAIN SHROUDED IN SECRECY AND, FRANKLY, MADAME CHAIR AND COLLEAGUES, WE SIMPLY MUST DO BETTER JUST YESTERDAY THERE WAS ANOTHER FATAL DEPUTY-INVOLVED SHOOTING IN THE SECOND SUPERVISORIAL DISTRICT THIS TIME IN THE WESTMONT COMMUNITY ONCE AGAIN AT THE HANDS OF THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT THIS YOUNG MAN’S NAME, HE WAS 29 YEARS OLD THE PROTESTS THAT FOLLOWED THIS TRAGIC INCIDENT ARE SOBERING IN THEIR VERY ESSENCE THEY REMIND US THAT THE PUBLIC’S TRUST IS AT STAKE WE NEEDN’T GO TO MINNESOTA WE NEEDN’T GO TO WISCONSIN NEED TO FOCUS RIGHT HERE IN OUR OWN COMMUNITY, IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, TO RECKON WITH THE USE OF FORCE AND TO MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC UNDERSTANDS AND THAT THERE IS NO SECRECY THAT INVOLVES THE PURSUIT OR THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE THE MOTION IN FRONT OF US HAS A DEEPER MEANING TODAY AS WE DEMAND TRANSPARENCY AND TRUTHFUL ANSWERS TO SO MANY QUESTIONS AS WE GRAPPLE WITH KNOWING THAT THERE IS YET ANOTHER YOUNG MAN, A YOUNG PERSON, AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN DEAD AT THE HANDS OF A LAW ENFORCEMENT ENTITY IN THIS COUNTY DO WE RUSH TO JUDGMENT? WE DO NOT DO WE CALL FOR INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATIONS? WE DO DO WE MAKE THE ASSERTION THAT AN ENTITY THAT’S SHROUDED IN CONTROVERSY CANNOT EFFECTIVELY INVESTIGATE ITSELF AND EXPECT THE PUBLIC TO BE CONFIDENT THAT THE INVESTIGATION IS BEING DONE CONSISTENT WITH ALL THE CONSTITUTIONAL GUARANTEES AND THE LIGHT? IT IS CLEAR THAT WE HAVE SUBSTANTIAL UNREADINESS THE FACTFINDING THAT HAS TO TAKE PLACE THE THOROUGH OBJECTIVE INVESTIGATIVE WORK IS A CRITICAL PART OF ENSURING THAT JUSTICE IS DONE EQUALLY IMPORTANT IS MAINTAINING THE PUBLIC’S CONFIDENCE IN THE OUTCOME OF INVESTIGATIONS WE DON’T HAVE PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, WE’RE IN TROUBLE THE LACK OF TRUE TRANSPARENCY FROM THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT AND THE INVESTIGATION OF THE DEATH OF ANDRES GUARDADO IS PARTICULARLY, RAISING INTEGRITY OVERSIGHT OF THIS INVESTIGATION IS NOT JUST CRITICAL FOR ENSURING ACCOUNTABILITY, IT IS LEGALLY MANDATED IT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE BOARD’S MARCH TOWARD REFORM OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT ENTITY KNOWN AS THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF THIS BOARD MUST DO ITS PART TO ENSURE THAT THE OVERSIGHT BODIES CAN FULFILL THEIR CRITICAL MISSION THOSE BODIES THAT WE PUT IN PLACE THAT A RECORD OF INVESTIGATIVE STEPS IS APPROPRIATELY DESERVED ACCORDINGLY, I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE SAME IF WE WANT TO REIMAGINE LOS ANGELES, IF REALLY COMMIT

OURSELVES TO THE NOTION OF REFORM AS IT IS BEING ARTICULATED NOW BUT BEFORE THE LANGUAGE OF REIMAGINE L.A. CAME INTO EXISTENCE, BEFORE THE ASSERTION OF POETICALLY COMMUNICATED BLACK LIVES MATTER LET THE RECORD REFLECT THAT THE JAIL VIOLENCE COMMISSION AND THE RANGE OF ENTITIES THAT THIS BOARD ESTABLISHED AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF OFFICE OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL, OF THE OVERSIGHT COMMISSION, THE INDEPENDENT OVERSIGHT COMMISSION, THE UNIT THAT’S NOW IN PLACE TO DEAL WITH GRIEVING FAMILIES THAT SUFFER AS A RESULT OF OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTINGS AND FATALITIES THIS BOARD HAS EMBRACED AND ADVANCED THOSE EFFORTS AND THIS MOTION TODAY SEEKS TO MOVE IT FURTHER ALONG AND NOT ACCEPT A RECALCITRANT UNREPENTANT LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, ELECTED THOUGH HE MAY BE, THAT WILL FLOUT THE LAW AND DISREGARD OUR ATTEMPTS TO MAKE SURE THAT CIVILITY ULTIMATELY REINS AND JUSTICE IS PURSUED IN THE CONTEXT OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND SO, MADAME CHAIR, LET ME JUST SIMPLY ASK IF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL CAN EXPLAIN THE COUNTY’S RESPONSIBILITY UNDERSTATE LAW TO ENSURE OVERSIGHT OF INVESTIGATIONS INTO FATAL USES OF FORCE IT’S THE FIRST QUESTION THE SECOND QUESTION WOULD BE: WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOU FACED IN MONITORING THE INVESTIGATION OF ANDRES GUARDADO? MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS I KNOW THAT MAX IS ON I KNOW THAT YOU’RE PROBABLY GOING TO REQUEST TO SPEAK WOULD MY COLLEAGUES PREFER TO HAVE MAX SPEAK AND THEN HE YOU CAN SPEAK AFTER HE MAKES HIS COMMENTS? MR. RIDLEY-THOMAS? >> SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: I THINK THAT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL WOULD BE AFFORDED AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: ABSOLUTELY >> SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: AND THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, CONSISTENT WITH YOUR INSTRUCTION, MADAME CHAIR, WOULD EITHER COMMENT ON HIS COMMENTS AND ASK HIM MORE QUESTIONS BUT I THINK WE SHOULD GET THESE OFF THE TABLE NOW >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: MR. HUNTSMAN? >> MAX HUNTSMAN: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR AND BOARD OF SUPERVISORS THANK YOU FOREL THE WORK YOU’VE DONE GOODBYE TO SACHI I WILL MISS HER ALTHOUGH YOU SAID SHE’S NOT REALLY GONE JUST MOVING OUT OF OUR SPHERE THE FIRST QUESTION IS IS THERE A DUTY UNDER STATE LAW FOR THIS BOARD TO ACT? GOVERNMENT CODE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS SUPERVISES THE COUNTY AND SO HAS A MORAL DUTY, A LEGAL DUTY IN ORDER TO MONITOR WHAT THE SHERIFF DOES AND THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT DOES EVEN THOUGH IT CANNOT INTERFERE IN THE SHERIFF’S INVESTIGATION OF CRIME AND THAT’S APPROPRIATE, I THINK, BALANCE OF THE NEEDS BUT WHEN THERE IS A LAWSUIT, IT IS THIS BOARD’S RESPONSIBILITY, THROUGH COUNTY COUNSEL, TO DEFEND THAT LAWSUIT, TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AGGRIEVED BY GOVERNMENT ACTION ARE PROVIDED APPROPRIATE COMPENSATION AS OUR LEGAL SYSTEM INVESTS TO DO AND ALSO PROTECT THE FISCAL HEALTH OF THE COUNTY AND THAT DUTY MEANS THAT THIS BOARD HAS TO AFFIRMATIVELY DO WHAT IT CAN TO MINIMIZE THAT RISK AND IN THE HEALTH OF INVESTIGATIONS OF SHOOTINGS, IT’S NECESSARY FOR THERE TO BE SOME KIND OF EXTERNAL MONITORING OF THE INVESTIGATION AS DR. LUCAS SAID, IT’S — WHEN THERE’S A COURT PROCEEDING DOWN THE ROAD, THE JURY, THE JUDGE AND THE PUBLIC IN THE PROCESS NEED TO BE CONVINCED THAT THE ENFORCEMENT AGENCY THAT DID THE INVESTIGATING FOLLOWED ALL THE RULES AND THAT THE FIX WASN’T IN AND SO FOR THAT REASON, IT’S VERIFY AN OLD RUSSIAN PROVERB THAT BECAME POPULAR TOWARDS THE END OF THE COLD WAR THAT’S ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL TO THE DISCHARGE OF THE BOARD’S DUTIES AND FOR THE PAST YEAR AND A HALF, THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT HAS CLAIMED THAT THAT INTERFERES WITH THEIR INVESTIGATION IT DOES NOT THE MERE GATHERING OF INFORMATION IN ORDER TO VERIFY IS NOT AN INTERFERENCE SPECIFICALLY WITH RESPECT TO THE GUARDADO CASE, WE HAVE MADE REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION THAT HAVE BEEN DENIED SO THAT’S THE SORT OF OBVIOUS WAY IN WHICH WE’VE BEEN OBSTRUCTED AS YOU KNOW A YEAR AGO OUR COMPUTER ACCESS WAS SHUT OFF OUR TERMINALS AT OUR OFFICE, WHICH WOULD HAVE ALLOWED US TO MONITOR THINGS SUCH AS THE ALLEGATIONS OF EXECUTION OR INVOLVEMENT IN THIS, THAT THERE WAS SOME KIND OF ATTEMPT TO RECRUIT THE SHOOTING DEPUTY AS WELL AS THE AN ALLEGATION THAT THE WITNESS DEPUTY WAS INVOLVED IN A DEPUTY GANG THESE ARE THINGS THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK INTO MORE QUICKLY AND EASILY IF WIDAC SAYS TO THOSE COMPUTERS AND OF COURSE SOME OF THE ASPECTS OF THE INVESTIGATION THAT ARE NOW BEHIND US AND NEVER CAN BE UNDONE WOULD HAVE BENEFITED FROM THIRD-PARTY

MONITORING SUCH AS THE GATHERING OF VIDEO EVIDENCE IN A MANNER THAT LED SOME PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT VIDEO EVIDENCE WAS DESTROYED IF THE INSPECTOR’S OFFICE HAD BEEN ENGAGED IN THAT OFFICE WE COULD HAVE MONITORED IT, IF WE HAD BEEN GIVEN COPIES OF THE VIDEO AS REQUESTED, WE COULD HAVE ASSURED THE PUBLIC AND COURTS THAT THERE WAS NO ALTERING OF VIDEO LATER ON AND AS YOU ALL KNOW IN THE CASE THE DEPUTY WHO DID THE SHOOTING DIDN’T GIVE A STATEMENT FOR WEEKS AND THERE WAS NO MONITORING ON WHAT THE COMMUNICATIONS WERE OR WEREN’T BETWEEN THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT AND THAT DEPUTY’S LAWYER AND WHY IT WAS THAT ULTIMATELY A STATEMENT WAS GIVEN, WHAT PROMISES IF ANY WERE MADE, WHAT INFORMATION WAS PROVIDED ALL THAT’S GOING TO BE CRITICAL TO THE CREDIBILITY ISSUES THAT WILL HAVE TO BE DECIDED BY A COURT DOWN THE ROAD AND HAS BEEN ALLUDED TO ALREADY, THE CREDIBILITY ISSUES THAT ARE BEING DISIDDED NOW IN PUBLIC SO THERE’S BEEN A GREAT DAMAGE BY NOT HAVING THIRD-PARTY MONITORING LET ALONE INVESTIGATION AND THAT RESISTANCE AS THIS SUPERVISOR SAID I THINK IS SOMETHING THAT CAN NOT BE TOLERATED BY THE BOARD AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED IN A LEGAL WAY THANK YOU >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU SUPERVISOR KUEHL? >> SUP. SHEILA KUEHL: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR I WAS THINKING WHILE SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS WAS SPEAKING ABOUT BOB DYLAN’S LINE “HOW MANY DEATHS WILL IT TAKE TILL WE SAY THAT TOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED”? AND I THINK WE ARE FINALLY, AS A SOCIETY, GETTING TO THE PLACE WHERE WE SAY: TOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE DIED AND NOW WE HAVE TO HAVE A REAL, TRANSPARENT, AVAILABLE WAY TO UNDERSTAND HOW THEY DIED AND WHETHER THE STORIES THAT WERE TOLD ABOUT HOW THEY HAD TO DIE OR THERE WAS NO OTHER CHOICE OR ANY OF THE EXCUSES THAT ARE GIVEN ARE TRUE AND THEY’RE MADE TRUE BY INVESTIGATION OF SOMEONE WHO’S NOT THE PEOPLE THAT DID SO BOTH OF THESE MOTIONS, THE ONES THAT WE JUST PASSED AND THIS ONE RAISE THE IMPORTANCE THAT TRANSPARENCY PLAYS IN THE COMMUNITY’S TRUST AND, FRANKLY, RAISES THE ISSUE OF HOW OPPOSITE TO — STONE WALLING IS BY ANY ARM OF GOVERNMENT, ESPECIALLY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES THAT RUN AROUND SAYING THAT THEY’RE PROTECTING AND SERVING US AND UNFORTUNATELY WHAT MAKES THESE MOTIONS NECESSARY IS THE REPEATED EFFORTS BY THE CURRENT CHAIR TO FIGHT TRANSPARENCY AT EVERY TURN I DON’T BELIEVE I’VE EVER HEARD THE INSPECTOR GENERAL SO CALM BECAUSE HE’S NOT USUALLY CALM HE’S USUALLY TEARING OUT HIS HAIR AND SAYING “AGAIN I’VE BEEN STONE WALLED, AGAIN I’VE BEEN TOLD NO” AND HE KNOWS VERY WELL THE BOARD CREATED HIS OFFICE TO PROVIDE FOR INDEPENDENT OVERSIGHT AND MONITORING AND THE SHERIFF REMOVED HIS DIRECT ACCESS AS HE SAID TO DEPARTMENTAL RECORDS AND CONSISTENTLY MAKES MATTERS WORSE BY REFUSING TO PROVIDE THE INSPECTOR GENERAL WITH RECORDS AND OF COURSE AS WE’VE NOW SEEN, SHERIFF IS WITHDRAWING PARTICIPATION IN ANY OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMITTEES AND COMMISSIONS THAT WE HAVE, AT LEAST THREATENING TO AS YOU KNOW, WE CREATED THE CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT COMMISSION WE VESTED THAT BODY WITH SUBPOENA POWER A MOVE THAT WAS OVERWHELMINGLY APPROVED BY 72 PERCENT OF THE VOTERS IN THE COUNTY AND IT WAS DONE BECAUSE THE VOLUNTARY INFORMATION SHARING WHICH WE HAD BEEN ENJOYING CAME TO A SCREECHING HALT AND THE C.O.C. COULD NOT EFFECTIVELY CONDUCT THEIR OVERSIGHT BECAUSE OF ALL THE OBSTRUCTION AND, AGAIN, THE SHERIFF REFUSED TO COMPLY, EVEN WHEN HE WAS SERVED WITH A SUBPOENA DIRECTING HIM TO GIVE TESTIMONY BEFORE THE BOYD SO EVERY ACTION THE BOARD TAKES TO PROVIDE OVERSIGHT MONITORING AND TRANSPARENCY HAS BEEN UNDERCUT BY THIS SHERIFF SO WE SAY, WELL WEEKS’ JUST GOING TO KEEP ON PERSISTING WE ARE GOING TO EMPLOY EVERY METHOD POSSIBLE TO ENSURE THAT ACCOUNTABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY PREVAIL OVER SECRECY BECAUSE THIS IS LITERALLY A LIFE AND DEATH MATTER SO TODAY I STRONGLY SUPPORT THIS MOTION AS WELL AS THE ONE JUST PASSED AND I APPLAUD EFFORTS BY THE CORONER, BY OUR INSPECTOR GENERAL, BY THE CIVILIAN OVERSIGHT COMMISSION TO PROMOTE TRANSPARENCY WHEN POSSIBLE AND HOLDING THOSE WHO ARE FIGHTING IT ACCOUNTABLE THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS I AM STRONGLY IN FAVOR OF THIS MOTION THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU SUPERVISOR HAHN AND THEN SUPERVISOR SOLIS >> SUP. JANICE HAHN: WELL, THANK YOU

AGAIN THIS HAS BEEN A GOOD DISCUSSION THANK YOU TO MAX FOR ALWAYS JUST HONING IN ON WHAT THE ISSUES ARE YOU KNOW, THERE’S SO MUCH THAT WE ARE GRAPPLING WITH FIRST OF ALL, OF COURSE, IT’S FINDING OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS SHOOTING AND OF COURSE WORKING HARD, YOU KNOW, THE FAMILY DESERVES THAT THE COMMUNITY DESERVES THAT YOU KNOW, THERE’S REALLY AN ISSUE ABOUT PUBLIC TRUST RIGHT NOW AND THERE IS SO MUCH WORK THAT WE ALL HAVE TO DO TO RESTORE THE PUBLIC’S TRUST IN LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT WILL HELP THEM DO THEIR JOB BETTER AND IT WILL CREATE THE KIND OF ENVIRONMENT WHERE TO PROTECT AND TO SERVE IS REALLY A MODEL THAT CAN BE EMBRACED BY THE PUBLIC AND WE KNOW THAT THIS TRUST HAS BEEN — CAN BE ERODED WHEN — PARTICULARLY WHEN THERE’S TOO MUCH SECRECY AND THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW THE PUBLIC CERTAINLY PERCEIVES OUR SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT IN THE WAY THEY’RE HANDLING OR MISHANDLING THE INVESTIGATION OF ANDRES GUARDADO’S SHOOTING WE VOTED EARLIER TODAY TO MOVE THE MONEY FOR THE FIRST YEAR OF FUNDING FOR THE BODY-WORN CAMERAS IN THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT AND, YOU KNOW, THIS IS ONE REASON WHY WE NEED THESE CAMERAS WE HAD A YOUNG MAN WHO WAS SHOOT AND KILLED BY A DEPUTY, AND WE DO NOT KNOW THE DETAILS OF WHAT HAPPENED BECAUSE THERE WAS NO VIDEO FOOTAGE SO THE PUBLIC, THE FAMILY IS LEFT TO WAIT IN SILENCE WHILE CONDUCTS A SECRETIVEMENT- INVESTIGATION AND MANY OF OUR RESIDENTS ARE FRIGHTENED THEY’RE ANGERED BY THE LACK OF PUBLIC TRANSPARENCY IN THIS INVESTIGATION AND THE CLOUD OF SECRECY, WHICH CHIPS AWAY AT THE TRUST THE PEOPLE HAVE IN THE DEPARTMENT ITSELF AND IN US I HAD HOPED THAT OUR SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT WOULD RECOGNIZE THE ROLE THAT TRANSPARENCY PLAYS IN BUILDING TRUST AND THAT THEY WOULD FULLY COOPERATE AND COLLABORATE WITH OUR OVERSIGHT BODIES THROUGHOUT THIS INVESTIGATION IN THE SAME WAY THAT THEY COLLABORATED IN THE BODY-WORN CAMERA PROCESS BUT UNFORTUNATELY THIS HAS NOT BEEN THE CASE SO THIS MOTION, THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS, FOR BEING ON THIS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING THIS MOTION ATTEMPTS TO FIND OTHER WAYS TO ACHIEVE TRANSPARENCY IN THIS INVESTIGATION WE OWE IT TO ANDRES, WE OWE IT TO HIS FAMILY, WE OWE IT TO THAT COMMUNITY WE OWE IT TO ALL LOS ANGELES COUNTY AND ALL THOSE WATCHING US AND YOU’RE RIGHT, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS, WE CAN’T LOOK AT OTHER CITIES AND STATES IN THE COUNTRY WITHOUT COMING RIGHT BACK TO OURSELVES AND SHINING A SPOTLIGHT ON THE PLACES WHERE WE, TOO, CAN DO BETTER SO THANK YOU >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: SUPERVISOR SOLIS? >> SUP. HILDA SOLIS: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR I WANT TO THANK ALSO SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS FOR BRINGIG THIS MOTION BEFORE US TODAY THE DEATH OF A CHILD IS ONE OF THE WORST THINGS THAT CAN HAPPEN TO A PARENT AND WHEN THEIR DEATH IS AT THE HANDS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE CHILD’S DEATH IS CONCEALED IN PRIVACY AND SECRECY, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE TRAUMA FELT AND THE HURT PLACED BY THE FAMILY’S INABILITY TO HEAL OR FEEL PEACE AND I WANT TO EXTEND AGAIN MY SINCERE SYMPATHIES TO THE ANDRES GUARDADO, HIS PARENTS AND FAMILY, E SPECIAL LIZ HIS FATHER CRISTOBAL WHO HAS BEEN EXTREMELY VOCAL ABOUT HIS SON’S DEATH I LEND MY SUPPORT OF THE FAMILY AND HAVING THE CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER CONDUCT AN IMMEDIATE INQUEST INTO ANDRES’S DEATH THE BOARD HAS LONG KNOWN THAT THE LAW ENFORCEMENT IS NOT ABLE TO INVESTIGATE ITS OWN MISCONDUCT THUS CREATING THE OFFICE OF SPINECTER GENERAL AND THE OVERSIGHT COMMISSION TO CONDUCT THEIR OWN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION THE SAME CAN BE SAID WITH THE SHERIFF’S PROPOSAL TO ESTABLISH A BODY OF LAW ENFORCEMENT REPRESENTATIVES IN THIS COUNTY TO INVESTIGATE EACH OTHER’S POLICE SHOOTING CASES THOUGH THIS WAS AN ATTEMPT TO SHOW THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS NOTHING TO HIDE, THERE IS NO ABILITY TO GUARANTEE THAT SOME SEMBLANCE OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY WHEN THESE INVESTIGATIONS TAKE PLACE BEHIND THE BLUE CURTAIN WITH MEMBERS OF THE BLUE BROTHERHOOD THE ONLY WAY THAT I WOULD FEEL LIKE THIS WOULD TRULY BE A TRANSPARENT BODY IS TO HAVE A CIVILIAN PUBLIC OFFICIAL PROVIDE OVERSIGHT HAVE A SEAT AT THAT TABLE TO ENSURE THAT THIS UNIT DOES NOT BECOME ANOTHER PLACE FOR INFORMATION TO BE HID AND WAY FROM THE PUBLIC I’M SO DISAPPOINTED THAT A SHERIFF WHO TOUTS TRANSPARENCY CAN BE SO AGGRESSIVELY UNCOOPERATIVE WITH THE OFFICE OF OUR INSPECTOR GENERAL TO HINDER THEIR PURSUIT OF THE TRUTH THE DEPARTMENT WENT AS FAR AS LOOKING OUT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL AND HIS TEAMS’ ACCESS TO

THE DEPARTMENT’S COMPUTER AND DATABASES THAT SOMEHOW ALLOYING THE I.G AND HIS TEAM TO DO A WALK THROUGH IS ENOUGH IN THE NAME OF TRANSPARENCY BUT REFUSES TO PROVIDE THE ESSENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND DATA AND THE REPORTS THAT’S NOT TRANSPARENCY AND I WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORT TAKING ACTION, INCLUDING ANY LEGAL, IF FEASIBLE AND APPROPRIATE, AGAINST THE DEPARTMENT FOR ANY VIOLATION OF THE LAW THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: THANK YOU I JUST HAVE TO SAY THAT I AM SADDENED THAT THIS MOTION HAD TO BE BROUGHT BEFORE US TODAY THE GUARDARDO FAMILY DESERVES ANSWERS AND THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE IS DESERVING OF TRANSPARENCY THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS SHOWN A SIGNIFICANT LACK OF INTEREST IN THOSE REGARDS WITH SEVERAL REQUESTS FROM OUR INSPECTOR GENERAL GOING UNFULFILLED WE ALL NEED TO BE WORKING TOWARD INCREASING COMMUNITY TRUST AND THE APPARENT RESISTANCE TO OVERSIGHT IS ERODING YEARS OF WORK BY THIS BOARD AND OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT PARTNERS AND IT IS A DISSERVICE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT BECAUSE HE’S UNDERI MEANING THE GOOD WORK THAT MANY OF THEM ARE DOING IT’S AN ODD POSITION TO HAVE TO REMIND THIS SHERIFF THAT EVEN AS THE CHIEF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER OF L.A. COUNTY, HE IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW NO MATTER WHAT YOUR INTERPRETATION IS OF CASELAW, COUNTY COUNSEL AND THE STATE’S JUDICIAL >> ATTORNEY: HAVE BEEN THOROUGH FOR CRAFTING LANGUAGE SURROUNDING OVERSIGHT AND INFORMATION SHARING DESPITE EVERY EFFORT OF THE SHERIFF TO COUNTER IT ALLOWING THE INSPECTOR GENERAL TO OVERSEE THE INVESTIGATION IS LAWFUL AND CANNOT BE REFUTED SHARING THE INFORMATION TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL IS REQUIRED UNDER THE COUNTY CODE LET ME REMIND YOU THERE IS NO GRAY AREA THIS CHARADE HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE THAT WE FIND OURSELVES, YET AGAIN, HAVING TO ENGAGE THE COURTS IN ORDER TO HAVE THE SHERIFF COMPLY WITH THE LAW THIS IS SOMETHING I HAVE NOT SEEN IN MY 30 YEARS WITH THE COUNTY AND CERTAINLY NOT A PRECEDENT THAT I WANT TO SET FRANKLY, IT’S EMBARRASSING AND I HOPE WE CAN IMPROVE MOVING FORWARD SO I WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORT THIS MOTION, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS AND, AGAIN, IT’S TRULY UNFORTUNATE WE FIND OURSELVES IN A POSITION TO HAVE TO EVEN BRING IN A MOTION LIKE THIS SO WITH THAT, SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS, DID YOU HAVE ANY CLOSING COMMENTS? >> SUP.

KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: YES, GO AHEAD >> SPEAKER: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR AND HONORABLE MEMBERS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK WITH YOU BRIEFLY LACO’S WORKING WITH ALL OF OUR 80 TO SUPPORT LEARNING AND ONE THING THAT WE KNOW THAT CAME OUT OF THIS PANDEMIC IS THAT IT’S AMPLIFIED PRE-EXISTING INEQUITIES OF HISTORICALLY-CREATED BARRIERS TO STUDENTS WHILE BEING THEIR ABILITY TO LEARN AND THEIR ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IT’S HIGHLIGHTED THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING INTERNET ACCESS NOT JUST FOR EDUCATION, BUT FOR SOME OF THE OTHER CRITICAL SERVICES THAT SUPERVISOR KUEHL JUST MENTIONED INTERNET IS NO LONGER A LUXURY, IT’S A BASIC NEED FOR OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES WE’RE ASKING THAT THE COUNTY HELP OUR EFFORTS TO CLOSE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE AND ENSURE THAT ALL STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO THE SERVICES THAT THEY NEED TO THRIVE WE SURVEYED ALL 80 DISTRICTS AND ASKED EACH SUPERINTENDENT TO CERTIFY THEIR DISTRICT’S NEEDS FOR HOTSPOTS AND DEVICES 79 OF THE 80 RESPONDED, WHICH REPRESENTS TWO-THIRDS OF THE COUNTY’S PRE-K THROUGH 12 STUDENTS THESE NUMBERS DO NOT INCLUDE LAUSD WHICH HAS NOT CERTIFIED ITS NUMBERS YOU KNOW, AS SCHOOLS START THE SCHOOL YEAR IN REMOTE LEARNING, WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO ENGAGE IN THEIR INSTRUCTION AND WE ARE LOOKING AT REMOVING THE BARRIERS THAT ARE TAKING PLACE AND THE INEQUITIES THAT OUR STUDENTS FIND THEMSELVES IN WE’RE ASKING FOR APPROXIMATELY 15 MILLION TO CLOSE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE THAT’S ONLY 3 PERCENT OF THE COUNTY’S TOTAL ENROLLMENT, WHICH I SAID REPRESENTS TWO-THIRDS OF THE COUNTY’S STUDENT POPULATION THIS WOULD PROVIDE APPROXIMATELY 26,820 CHROMEBOOKS AND 21,500 HOTSPOTS WITH 12 MONTHS OF SERVICE TO ENSURE THAT EVERY SINGLE STUDENT HAS ACCESS TO THE INTERNET AND THEIR FAMILIES THIS WOULD MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS AND THAT THEY’RE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE AND I JUST WANT TO SAY IN CLOSING THAT I CAN’T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES ARE CONNECTED BECAUSE EVEN WHEN SCHOOLS DO EVENTUALLY REOPEN PHYSICALLY, THEY WILL LIKELY DO SO UNDER THE SOCIAL DISTANCE GUIDELINES WHERE THERE WILL BE HYBRID MODELS IN WHICH THERE WILL STILL BE SOME STUDENTS NEEDING TO ACCESS ONLINE INSTRUCTION AND WE ALSO KNOW THAT THIS OPPORTUNITY WILL ADDRESS SOME OF THE OTHER SERVICES THAT STUDENS AND FAMILIES NEED IN ORDER TO THRIVE SO, THAT’S IT I’M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS IF YOU HAVE THEM THANK YOU >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER: THANK YOU, DOCTOR SHEILA? >> SUP. SHEILA KUEHL: I ALSO% ASKED BILL KEHO REALLY THE KIND OF POSSIBILITIES THE SAME WITH SELL WIN THIS IS NOT UP FOR A VOTE TODAY I SIMPLY WANTED TO OPEN THIS AS A DREAM BIG ITEM FOR US AS WE MOVE FORWARD IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF MEETINGS TO THINK ABOUT HOW WE CAN MEET THE NEEDS OF THE MOMENT SO IF BILL IS THERE, MAYBE WE COULD HEAR FROM HIM >> SUP. KATHRYN BARGER, CHAIR: SURE, GREAT >> SPEAKER: THANK YOU, SUPERVISORS FOR THE RECORD, BILL KEHO, THE COUNTY CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER THE DIGITAL DIVIDE, AS DR. GER ARTIST DOUGH HAS INDICATED HAS BEEN WITH US FOR TIME IT HAS BEEN EX EXASPERATED THROUGH THIS COVID CRISIS AS WORK AND PLACES OF LEARNING AND SCHOOLS HAVE SHUT DOWN AND FORCED PEOPLE TO WORK FROM HOME

AT ITS CORE, THE DIGITAL DIVIDE IS THE DISPARITY OF HOMES THAT HAVE BROADBAND ACCESS AND COMPUTERS AT HOME AND THOSE THAT DO NOT AND WHAT WE’RE SEEING IS DR. DUARDO POINTED OUT IS THAT THERE’S SEVERAL STUDENTS THAT NEED THE DEVICES AND THE NETWORK ACCESS TO EFFECTIVELY WORK BE AND ATTEND CLASSROOMS REMOTELY SO IN SHORT-TERM A AND I’LL LET SOMEONE ADDRESS WHAT WE’RE DOING WITH DR. DUARDO BUT WE ARE WORKING WITH DR. DUARDO AND HER STAFF AND WHAT THE EXTENT OF THE PROBLEM IS WE ALSO KNOW THAT FOR THE LONG TERM, MY SUGGESTION IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WE REALLY NEED A STRATEGIC PLAN MOVING FORWARD AND NOT ONLY IN HOW WE’RE GOING TO ADDRESS THE SHORTCOMINGS THAT WE SEE WITH OUR STUDENTS, BUT HOW WE’RE GOING TO ADDRESS THE DIGITAL DIVIDE IN L.A. COUNTY AS MORE AND MORE WE ARE PUTTING SERVICES ONLINE WHETHER IT BE HEALTH-RELATED, WHETHER IT’S BE JOBS-RELATED, WHETHER IT BE CRITICAL INFORMATION THAT HOUSEHOLDS NEED MOVING FORWARD DURING COVID AND POST COVID AND THAT STRATEGIC PLAN IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT SO THAT WE WORK WITH BOTH THE STATE, OUR COMMUNITIES AND CITIES AND OUR PRIVATE WIRELESS CARRIERS, WHICH TO TACKLE THIS PROBLEM IS REALLY REQUIRED WE HAVE BEEN ADDRESSING IT IN PIECES AND I THINK THE PLAN THAT NEED IS A HOLISTIC PLAN THAT HAS SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS KNOWN NOT JUST ONE TIME SOLUTIONS, BUT SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION THAT IS WILL BRIDGE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE GAP WITH A GOAL TO PROVIDE ALL HOUSEHOLDS IN L.A. COUNTY THE SAME OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ACCESS AND RECEIVE CRUCIAL INFORMATION AND SERVICES SO THOSE ARE MY BRIEF COMMENTS, SUPERVISORS AND I THANK YOU FOR THE TIME >> SUP.
