Jennifer Horn Weighs in on LA's Sanctuary City Status
"Your LA city council out there is talking about becoming a sanctuary city again. Are they really going to go with this? Is that a thing again? Well, you know what's so funny is I read the same story this morning and I thought, wait a second, is it Los Angeles? Already a sanctuary city. I mean, we've been doing any time you go to jail, the jails are not allowed to work with ice. They're not cooperating. So essentially why do we even have to make it official again? Because we've already been acting in this same vein. It's absolutely insane. I think that they run out of things to do. And now that they're going to end the COVID emergency finally at the end of March so they think what other thing can we get into? Maybe we need to revisit sanctuary fun again. I mean, you have so much craziness. You have the LA fire department and the LAPD, all coming out in the LA fire just recently just today actually LAPD last month, saying that they want to they want to reduce the test and the testing and the standard for hiring because they want to get they want to achieve equity instead of equality. And so they want to lower the standards so they can bring in more women. They can bring in more minorities. Here's the thing. I don't care what color you are. I don't care what gender you are, but I want you to be able to pass the test. Show up. That's too much to ask. I don't think that's unreasonable.

Yes, oh, by the way, as we mentioned, we know the identity of the ex Trump White House staffer turned Mar-a-Lago staffer Walt nada is his name was caught on camera moving boxes at Mar-a-Lago before and after the Justice Department demanded the return of documents that were eventually seized to use the one that is now implicated Trump and saying he he ordered the code radar. Yes. Over the boxes. What is Glen kirshner call it? Beyond a reasonable doubt Correct. That he will be not just indicted, but convicted. What was that term that we heard from it from Glenn that we'd never heard before? In vegetable. That's it. Yes. So is it a big one? Is it vague almost? No, it's kidnapping people. Lying to them.

I don't know this woman have no idea she is other than she got a picture of me many years ago with her husband shaking my hand on a reception line of a celebrity charity event. She's completely made up story that I met her at the doors of the grant in New York City to department store and within minutes wound her. Swooned her, she didn't say wound. What? It's a hooked. I'm sorry. It's a hoax and a lie. Just like many other hoaxes that have been played on me for the past 7 years and while I'm not supposed to say it, I will. This is not my type. She has no idea what day what week one month wait, or one decade, the so called events. It was really a good place. The reason she doesn't know is because it never happened, and it doesn't mean she doesn't want to get caught up with the details of the fact that they can be proven wrong. If you watch the Cooper's interview with her. When she was promoting a really crummy book, you'll see that it's a complete scam. She sees her story from beginning to end after the commercial break the suit the purposes of seeing that it is a group of our justice system is broken along with almost everything else in our country. Her lawyer is a political operative in Cuomo crony. Who goes around to other people. The only way to be Trump is assume all over the place. He's doing me on numerous verbal cases. Just like this one in the court system does nothing to stop it. And nothing to do with don't know would have no interest in knowing her. If I ever had the chance, now all I know is to go through more years of legal, not just urgent care, my name. I've heard your lawyers from the attacks. I mean, this would only happen to Trump. I

"To max politics. This is Ben max from Gotham gazette, a publication of citizens union foundation. Thanks so much for tuning in here for this episode of the show. A really good conversation ahead this week on the podcast today. We're talking about charter schools in New York City. The growing and complicated and controversial and fascinating and in many ways successful sector of privately run public schools that now accounts for well over 10% nearing 15% of New York City public school enrollment New York City school enrollment has dipped a bit over the last few years. There may be some pandemic adjustments to school enrollment that have affected things that we might see a correction to in the next year or two, but the growth in charter schools has continued and we are going to talk today with James Merriman, the longtime CEO of the New York City charter school center and we have a lot to get to with James. New York City charter school is now educate more than 140,000 students in the city in more than 270 schools. So a lot to dig into with James Merriman in just a second. If you've missed any recent episodes of the show, you can find them all at max politics wherever you get podcasts or at the Gotham gazette website. We have them all there. Recent guests have included New York City controller Brad lander. We caught up with him about his first 6 or so weeks on the job and his reaction to mayor Eric Adams initial preliminary budget and much more really interesting conversation with controller Brad lander recently. Also recently a conversation with a couple of stakeholders in the growing cryptocurrency industry talking about what is cryptocurrency, why mayor Adams wants New York City to be a center for the industry, some of the New York regulations at play and some of the questions around cryptocurrency in New York and beyond. Also recently on the show I've had some very interesting conversations with new city council members here in New York City who chair important committees. I gathered the three new chairs of the city council's committees on health, mental health and hospitals for a discussion about their priorities taking over those committees. Obviously, they're important issues and committees any time, but of course, particularly as we are still amid the COVID pandemic and trying to get through it. So that was a very interesting conversation with city council members, Lynn schulman, Mercedes and Linda Lee. And at the state level, we've also had interesting conversations recently with state senators Liz Krueger and Jessica Ramos. We've been dealing with other issues on the show, not just cryptocurrency and not just charter schools like today, but we've also talked with experts and stakeholders and policymakers about New York shift to clean.

New York City controller, Brad lander, thank you for joining me. And it's a wonderful to be back with you. I went back and listened to a couple of those shows in preparation and I definitely urge your listeners to as well. All right, good. When I spoke a few weeks ago now with former deputy mayor and city housing commissioner Vicki bean, I thought that one might be a particular interest to you on housing policy, which I know is an issue close to your heart. You're going to catch that one. It really is, although the one I learned the most from was from the doctor that you had on to talk about how to understand the mental health crisis and what kinds of interventions we really need. And I've just been thinking about that a lot because of course people ask me, are you auditing thrive, what happened to the money? And at the same time, we really need to know what evidence shows about what programs work. I think everyone understands that what we want for folks who are homeless and in some cases mentally ill on the subways are on the streets. Our programs that work to help them get into stable housing to get the mental healthcare that they need that that's best for them. And of course, also makes people feel more comfortable to ride the subway. And you know, we just spend a lot more on policing than we do on mental healthcare and supportive housing, but we also want to know that we're investing in things that are really going to work. So anyway, I enjoyed that and actually one of the things I'm going to be digging in on on the budget that we're going to talk about. Good, good. Yes, that was Harvey Rosenthal of the New York association of psychiatric rehabilitation services, my first time speaking with him and he was very interesting. Okay, great. So mayor Eric Adams has released today his preliminary budget for the next fiscal year. This sets off a lengthy process. Your evaluation, negotiations, the executive budget, all the way leading up to the adopted budget due by July 1st for the city's next fiscal year. Also in that mix, of course, will be the state budget that is supposed to come in by April 1st, the start of the state's new fiscal year. So initial sort of top line reactions from you to the mayor's preliminary budget and what you'll be doing next. As you say, this really is a very first step. There are some things reflected in this budget, like the federal resources that we're getting. Like the fact that the economy is doing better than we had projected property values are actually much higher than they had been projected to be. And so there's over this year and next, $2.3 billion more in revenue than we had expected. But there's a long way to go. There's some things reflected in this budget a lot, not yet reflected in it. So I'll give you some top lines. First, there are some things I really like. I will say seeing a 100,000 summer youth jobs, that's a great investment. We know that kids need something like that always, but especially coming out of the pandemic, the numbers never been that high before one other good thing about that is it doesn't create a long-term obligation. That's a good use of federal funding to spend on a massive program this summer. I hope we can do it again the following summer, but you don't hire someone up and create a long-term recurring obligation. So that's a good investment and fiscally prudent as well. I like baseline funding for the fair fares program to help low income New Yorkers afford to ride the subways and buses. And there's some other good things as well. There are some things we really need to see. I will say that the current plan. It does not include a credible effort to build up long-term fiscal reserves. It was one good step, which is that he stopped showing this illusory $500 million in labor savings that mayor de Blasio showed every year without ever actually achieving it. And so mayor Adams is just taking that out of the budget and said we're not going to pretend anymore. But there really is not, meaningful depositing into the rainy day fund. And that's in a significant contrast to governor hochul's budget last week. I mean, she had even a lot more revenue to work with. But that budget is balanced in every year of the four year plan and keeps investing in the rainy day fund to get up to 15% of revenues. This just doesn't come anywhere close on that. So a long way to go on fiscal reserves and resilience. I do want to see more evidence based investment in support of housing and mental health outreach that we were just talking about, given the public safety challenges. We really need more information about the one time federal spending. We can talk a little more about that, but there just is not enough clarity. And then I also really dig in and focus on the capital budget because the way we get ready for the future storms that are coming and over 6 months past Ida and now coming up on ten years past superstorm sandy and it's not at all clear to me that we're making the resilience investments that we need for the next crisis. So those are all things that I'll be digging in on in the weeks and months to come. As I go testify to the council and that's a good and helpful list. Let's stick with a couple of those things. One, the federal funding. I believe how to Bill when you were in the city council last year that would have mandated track public tracking of how federal relief funds are being spent. What's the status of that? Are you going to stand up your own tracker as controller, any conversations with the atoms administration about how they can do that proactively? What's the status of giving a lot more.
"la city council" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"To see themselves and try to remove it or act on it, then that's recognized in as themselves. Not another elephant. I don't even think I'm a person. I look in the mirror and I'm like, oh, who is that? I know, right? What happened? I mean, human infants can't pass that test, right? I don't know what point of development. Yeah. I mean, that's just sort of goes to the point you were making previously in terms of the argument from marginal cases. Yeah, and that's also our ability to test their awareness and I'm always when I go back to say chimpanzees and some of the great apes. I just like to remind people they can communicate in our language. We've been able to teach chimpanzees and gradients like sign language. So they're basically speaking in some form of English with us. And, you know, at least in human and we can't speak energy and good all, I think we had a really fun event with the LA city council back and I think it was 2019. And Jane Goodall taught the members of the city council some chimpanzee language for Jane good all day that we had there. And it was just really fun to hear her kind of like hooting in the halls of LA county city council. Because we will get the emails I do want to flag that there's an excellent episode of you're wrong about that it does throw a little bit of cold water on the teaching chimpanzees sign language stuff. It might be more akin to allegedly Mark into teaching a dog at a kind of a trick and associating it with. So there's a little bit of controversy there. But the point still stands that animals do have amazing abilities that it's hard for us to recognize often. Yes, and I think once you read when you read, I'm kind of using a very bait. And this would be like maybe the elevator speech. I'm not a primatologist, but we have experts that have detailed all of these kind of examples where we know the chimpanzees, like they'll plan for the visitors coming to a zoo and they stash up piles of poo and throw them at the visitors because they're like angry that they have to be. You know, they do things that are intentional and attention and future planning are decidedly high order intelligence, like tomorrow, the visitors are coming. There's a segment in our documentary unlocking the cage where my boss Steve is going to see this. I think it was a bonobo. And the bonobo was using it was one of those computers that translates, but it was visitor has ball and Steve was holding my boss was holding an orange or an apple, like a piece of fruit. And it was like, I want the ball, but the visitor has. To recognize that my boss was a visitor and not like, you know, I don't know, just it's very interesting when you look at the science. And I think there probably are parts of science that you can critique those tests. But there's other tests out there that are not mainstream that. Absolutely worth looking at. Yeah. No, the stockpiling poo. I think it's a really good argument about future planning. Yeah. I want to keep continuing sort of to intertwine because I think this is both a legal and a philosophical question. Sure it is. Obviously, some of the law stuff kind of came up for me. There's a citation in your brief where you are discussing that domestic and pet animals have trust beneficiary rates under New York law. Can you kind of explain that argument to me and sort of pull out the implications? Yes, yes, I'd love to, especially because I deep doubt and did a lot of this petrus research. Oh yeah. When I was in law school, yeah. So this was one of those arguments that really kind of evolved in some judges. I think judge daffy our first judge actually really took to it and was like, yeah, New York law kind of already does recognize a limited personhood. And frankly, you know, when I saw the hippo press release, come out. My first thought was if we're going to say anything, the first sort of rights recognize for animals in this country. I would argue if anything they're the petrus, because the petras, in some states, not others. Most states have some version of an ability to allow you to leave something for your pet if you die. But they don't all recognize those as enforceable trust some of them are considered honorary. But several states like New York decided to be really explicit in saying that in enacting their statute that allows for pets to be taken care of after the death of the owner, that the animal is the beneficiary. And it's not an honorary trust. It is an animal as a beneficiary. You want to get into the role of perpetuities. They're using the animal as the living, the life in being. And I know, and it's funny because I saw a meme about against perpetuities and how these bar student. People that passed the bar recently were like, I still don't understand the rule against perpetuities. But the bottom line is that the law in New York and several other states is very explicit that an animal can be the beneficiary and only persons, legal persons can be beneficiaries of the trust, and be entitled to the claims of the money under the trust and have an enforcer and a guardian and other statutory accoutrements. We're doing like an impromptu are you a cop segment right here on the show? Because this is the kind of thing that I would have thought, you know, eventually I would have had to have researched and exploded as a myth. But you're saying that the sitcom idea of I can in my will like leave my house to my dog that New York and other states recognize that as a valid conveyance to a legal interest? Yeah. I mean, I'm not disagree with that. And there was actually a bit there was a big case about a million. So some of these petras have been mocked for that reason because there's been like $1 million grants to like a fluffy dot like a million, I think I forget it wasn't about Bardot try and leave like the Cincinnati reds to her dog. There was some cases that were pretty outlandish and they might have been overturned just on cognitive work. Was the donor cognizant of what they were doing. But those were big legal battles, but there's some legitimate. There's plenty of legitimate reasons for these statues, practical reasons, a lot of old people to have cats and dogs and who takes care of them and how do we make sure they're taking care of. And so creating a little fun and designated designating a caretaker has a practical reason. And then some legislators went further to make it really just clear that the animals are the beneficiaries. And if you look at, for instance, Connecticut, in New York to the legislative history of their statutes in the amendments that were added to them to make the animal the life and being and to make sure they're actually enforceable and not honorary. They are recognizing that animals, pets are specifically like parts of people's families and a lot of people consider their dogs like children. And if you accept our argument that those create a limited form of personhood, then it's really not a leap at all to say the elephants should have a limited right to not be in captivity if fluffy the dog is able to receive a $1 million inheritance, just sort of joking there, but really, there's already efforts made to recognize the personhood in animals even pets. This shows brought to you by raycon folks, you know what time of the year it is, it's almost holiday time. And it's never too early to start gift shopping for the holidays, especially because those supply chain issues. So you've got to get on it right now. And if you want a great idea for a gift that you can save big on.

"The economy The LA city council then voted to make that transition by 2035 a decade earlier than originally planned Jason plows a freelance reporter who covers politics and the environment says the strategies outlined in the report include shutting down gas generating plants deploying more solar wind and battery storage and piloting green hydrogen Beyond the generating side they're looking at adding solar panels to single-family and multi-family homes that would be rooftop solar that can supply some of the power They're looking at electrifying buildings electrifying transportation In fact they're looking at so much electrification of buildings and transportation that LADWP the Los Angeles department of water and power says they're going to double the amount of electricity that they produce by 2035 just to meet that expected demand The city's strategy also includes an equitable hiring plan What that means is communities in Los Angeles that have previously been affected by coal and gas fired power generation are going to be sort of front of the line when it comes to hiring for these renewable energy jobs clean energy jobs installing solar panels making this transition Cloud says that commitment to addressing environmental injustice will mean closing down gas plants inside city limits that disproportionately pollute certain neighborhoods and making sure no community is left out of the transition That could include incentives that help lower the cost of electrification or installing renewable energy on homes in some of these neighborhoods that could include direct outreach from the city to hear what these communities want to see LA's goal of all clean energy by 2035 is more ambitious than most of its peers But plaud says many utilities across the country have made carbon free or net zero commitments by mid century Arizona public service says a 100% in carbon free by 2050 A vista corp which is based in Washington state says a 100% by 2045 Dominion Energy which is based in Virginia and serves some states in the southeast They're saying net zero emissions by 2050 do energy a 100% by 2050 Idaho power a 100% clean energy by 2045 Those are mostly just voluntary pledges however without binding requirements Still plowed says there are several factors driving these shifts State renewable energy standards pressure from cities that buy power from utilities and are making their own carbon commitments and the fact that prices of renewable energy continue to drop So certainly these goals have pushed utilities have showed them where the market is heading is showing what their customers want to do But yes on the other hand the market's moving in this direction And if you're an investor owned utility you're looking at the bottom line Los Angeles is far from the only city setting emissions reductions goals As nations gear up to meet at the cop 26 climate summit plaud says these moves on the local level can carry real weight The commitments we're seeing from cities and states and utilities really work as a bottom up approach to reach those goals It's not just about what the Biden administration or what the federal government says A lot of it has to do with what cities states counties and utilities and even private businesses are doing which can add up to reach those emissions goals Cloud sites a recent report from Bloomberg philanthropies which found that cutting emissions from the power sector 83% below 2005 levels can make up more than half of the total reductions the U.S. needs to meet its Paris climate goals For climate one I'm Ariana brocious Listening to a conversation looking ahead to what's in store at the climate.

I can tell you not only hollywood but venice has been a disaster. I tell you you know. Homeless has been attacks on our our business. It's been attacked on our tourism. I'm one of fifteen council members and my my my colleagues. Don't agree with me that we need to have consequences when people on the streets are offered shelter and they refused to go in. Okay that's called enabling. Sure as called ebeling allowed people to destroy themselves. The mental health laws in california are failing. Those folks who are not in the mind frame to say yes to help dr passion. I i spoke to drew and he told me. Don't ever disagree with adam curle before you but drew and i were talking the same language here. We need to redefine gravely disabled. But at the same time. If we don't have by the way we have over a thousand beds available last night in. La a thousand beds available. Okay you had this governance structure that's called l. A. homeless services authority. That is a failure. I'm calling to To end it because they're not giving us real time data on who says yes to help. Who says no to help. And we need that data information or no. Who were helping. Were not helping well. Is there a tell me if this is. The phenomenon are the new world order. Were living in and if this is what's happening because it feels. I feel this way so i'll set. I'll set you an example. We have five bloviating knicks. That are trying to push the term latina ax. You ask all latins. Would you wanna be called the go now. But there's five wight karen's that one latina so now. We have to discuss this. You know what i mean. It's gotta be thing and we gotta argue over it and it's got to be official. Nobody latino people don't give two shits about latinos they don't like latina but yet it's sort of forced on us and i feel like the homeless. It's like a couple of city council members feckless worthless city council members and then a small group of homeless advocates. Whatever the fuck that means idiots who anointed themselves experts in homelessness and then there's tire rest of society and the entire society wants these people move. They want them to get help. They went the same thing. You want to shelter if you can't get a shelter then we've got to put you somewhere else. We gotta get you cleaned up. We gotta get you help and mental services. That's what everyone wants. And there's like five people that are saying no you gotta say latino and then the rest of us going oh wherever they know something or something. How do we get these people out of here. It's not the homeless people. Everyone's guys how do we get the homeless people. How do we get there. Five assholes are the advocates in the la city council. That are ruining this whole thing for everyone. The homeless just homeless. They're going to do what we let them.

"Say oh we. We can't have these encampments anymore. Okay where are you going to put people. These are people. These are humans. Where are you going to put them. And so they've been offered temporary housing. We have over one hundred thousand vacant apartment. Units and houses in los angeles county few years ago the la city council in an effort to urge landlords to rent them out was threatening to implement additional taxes if they refuse to do it. I don't know what happened. But the city council drop that so is there a shortage of affordable housing. Yes there should definitely be more construction for affordable housing but there are also other opportunities vacant units. That should be utilized right now. People are being pushed into shelters or permanent housing. Is that a long term solution. It is not. It is not a long term solution. But let's also be clear because this is the other issue. I have allowing homeless people to just waste away and misery and die on the streets in these encampments. That's also not the humane answer and for the activists and also corporate democrats who were like. No no no. We're the good guys. We are supporting homeless people who get to live on giant piles of garbage on the streets. No that's not activism. that's not admirable. We need to be fighting aggressively for permanent housing for these people telling us that you're good guy because you're allowing them to keep whatever they wanna keep around them. It's just it's nothing. That's nothing compared to what you actually need to do in providing housing and in addition to that social services so they can get their feedback on the ground and get their lives together that includes mental health care that includes job training that includes drug rehabilitation because some of these people are unfortunately addicted to drugs. Obviously not all of them not generalizing here but to treat homeless people in california. Some sort of monolith is stupid. Because they're not a monolith they have their different groups that are dealing with different struggles and need a different approach. But what we're seeing from the city right now is just this superficial baseline will put you in project room key. We'll put you in some temporary housing. We're gonna push you into some shelters. It's just not a long term solution. It's not sustainable. So what what else does this. Ordinance indicate well tents or other objects that are found to be within two feet of a fire hydrant. That's not allowed so these are all the restrictions. Thanks to this new ordinance. People are found to be sitting sleeping or storing property within five feet of a building usable entrance or within ten feet of a driveway. That's not allowed tents or other objects are obstructing the street or bicycle path. Look some of this stuff makes sense. You don't want tents in the street it's dangerous for everyone involved dangerous for the people living in those tents it's dangerous for people on the road also You're not allowed to have encampments or tents that are blocking sidewalks in ways that prevent wheelchair users from traveling on then in violation of the federal americans with disabilities. Act the landmark civil rights law. And i also want to just know that the way that this ordinance has written the city can't come in and just displace encampments on day. One they show up and they have to give a fourteen day notice once. An area is approved for enforcement by the city council. Signs would need to be installed followed by a fourteen day. Public notice period enforcement would be accompanied by a street engagement strategy with social workers and others Reaching out to a particular encampment over a period that could last up to four months once areas. Cleared outreach workers would return over a period of three months to see if a homeless people return if they come back. Additional outreach could be conducted to promote voluntary compliance but again we need permanent solutions not temporary housing. Where in a month or two. These people are homeless again. That is not a sustainable solution. And when you step back and you look at the bigger picture on a federal level. Certain things need to be outlawed. Private equity firms should not be allowed to buy up single family residences to then turn them into rental so they can monopolize the slum lord industry we should also minimize or highly regulate foreign investment in residential properties in the united states if we have a housing crisis if we have a shortage of homes. Why are we allowing foreigners who have no interest actually living in the united states. Purchase up homes in the. Us makes no sense. There are so many potential solutions and we need to focus on robust measures for public housing. I think australia's model for social. Housing is a good example of that. And i hope to give you guys more details about it in a future episode. But don't fall for misinformation online but more importantly don't buy this notion that normal people are being helped out there being placed in housing. Everything's good everything's great. No solutions right. Now are not sustainable. They're not realistic. And we need to make difficult decisions that require quite a bit of resources in order to get this issue resolved. We need to address the underlying economic conditions that lead to the homelessness that we're seeing not just in los angeles not just in california but across the country. We gotta take a break. We'll be right back. Dj bark kyle on the ones and twos with that deep house. I hope you guys are enjoying it. Ice cream all right. Thank you bar. I love that. He plays his music for me on wednesdays.

Jay this week has been replaced, Replace, but certainly in her stead. Nobody could replace Jennifer. But the other J is J. So we have Jake Kushner and Victoria Keelan on the air with me to talk about. That's happening. What is going on there? A lot of that Z. The world turns and things are working. Once we get out of retrograde still work a lot better than they have the last couple of weeks. It's until the 20th Mercury is in retrograde. So astrologers everywhere, having a field day trying to calm people down, Get him off the ledge because it's a tough retrograde. The things that are going, I guess maybe an example. Of this, although it didn't take place during mercury. The information now is out there about the the way people are believing or not believing. What the officials and government are saying. What is the public believe when it gets who receives information from officials? There is in very interesting study by the rave mobile safety Group of Communication. Platform. They do a lot of research on the public Public safety public Trust. So one of the conclusions here ladies is that public safety is taken sort of a new meaning as we go into the new year. Local officials. First responders who are supposed to be informing and protecting. Isn't that really? What? When you look at Fauci even looking at the natural of the national picture? You want to think that what he's telling you is correct. And what you are hearing from him, and as it trickles down member, the old trickle down theory that Ronald Reagan created or came up with her thought over somebody did in his administration. The old trickle down philosophy. It starts at the top, but it comes down to the state. Then it goes to the locals well, residents are not happy with the issues that have been related to fixing the problems. Everyday emergencies is a matter of fact, are being handled badly. They think police are not doing the job the way that the public and I'm talking about serious numbers you down 22% of the respondents. Said that they completely trust the information they get from officials 22% First responders are more trusted than local officials. 62% of respondents complained. Sorry. Completely trust information. From firefighters 59% trust the information again about the pandemic from paramedics, so the level of trust then drops for police to 33%. Responding, saying they completely trust information they received from police but still higher trust in higher than the local officials. I'm talking about the mayor's a city councils. That sort of thing on Lee 37% of respondents say they're completely confident or very confident. There's state's ability. To successfully distribute the vaccine. Texted. Phone alerts from local officials are among the most trusted sources of info 77% of respondents completely trust or somewhere trust. The director alerts overwhelming willingness To provide personal data. That would aid the responders like 85% of respondents said they're likely somewhat willing to provide background in for Mary Info about themselves their family's medical history, that sort of thing. Theo first responders. S o. The now it goes onto overview, the trust in guidelines and the guidance coming. One third of respondents say there They completely trust updates from officials. But the virus multiple factors contribute to that lack of trust respondents most likely to say it's because they don't trust the facts. Local officials used to make their recommendations. That's 50% percent. Recommendations and guidance changes too frequently. That's what they say. 55% said that local officials exaggerate the severity of the situation. 40%. I bet that's all tied in with schools. Yeah, that chunk of data that you just shared. I bet that as ah lot to do, if not all to do with schools, because the school thing I mean, I don't have kids, but my friends who have kids in different states. They say the same thing that the school the rules keep changing really quickly and that it's kind of like this constant shifting of the ground underneath them, And it's hard to plan for your job all in. Yeah, it's hard to plan for. You know your job. And you know if you don't even know if your kids are gonna be in school or not in a week or two observation there, the state of Rhode Island is in the focus here. There was a lot of success there. And that's one of the reasons the governor General Mondo got picked for a Cabinet position. But now when examining eggs, the people that I don't if she'd been approved yet has she been confirmed in the middle? I think of In that confirmation hearing. I don't She's given a few statements, but I don't think she's been approved yet or confirmed. I should say, Well, One of the reasons that they're struggling is because the situation in the state Has fallen apart. Um a lot of people have, um a lot of people have jumped the line, if you will has become obvious the staff Have the black volunteers vaccination staffs and that sort of thing have jumped the line so that the elderly were pushed out of the line. You know, the elderly have been left waiting for their shots and Rhode Island, and so that is not, you know, the The idea is to protect the people who are most vulnerable and that apparently falling apart. Yeah, and that's happening happening in a lot of states to in Florida's well, it's part of the problem. According to a friend of ours. Who was Ah, vet veterinarian. Um so in certain states and counties, veterinarians are kind of considered backup. First Responders s O s O a friend of ours, who's Ah veterinary Cardiology. He's has a mobile clinic, so he's seeing dogs and cats like through his van, But he has also been notified that if they need help with, you know, in giving injections, veterinarians air on the list to give injections to humans. So he's considered kind of on that front line. And when he went to one of those mega sites here in New Jersey to get his first shot, the person who gave him the shot said that part of the problem is that people are are just not showing up for their appointments. And so a lot of the first responders who are on the list have confirmed appointments and then they don't show up. For whatever reason, they either don't trust the vaccine, or they don't think they need it. And then it's kind of a free for all. No one wants to waste the vaccine, so people are sort of core to go jumping the line. They're showing up and saying, Hey, do you have any vaccines left older people are not doing that. So what's part of the problem? Part of the problem in Rhode Island is that two of the biggest contributors to her campaign They're big hospital groups, Life span and Karen, New England. They took the vaccine and vaccinated all the members of the staff. Everybody Even low risk. Nonmedical staff were getting vaccinated at least a month before the people. Little administrators are on that list, though, even if you don't interact per se, if you're not a doctor hospital administrators because they made you came up with that list instead of I don't know every hospitals doing that, because every the doctor friends that we have who are working in hospitals, whether you're in the covert unit or not, if you are, if you're hospital administrator. There's a lot of paperwork right now. And they can't afford to lose those people because of the virus or to have them not be at work, so everyone in the hospital who makes the hospital run has to be covered. It makes sense that Z. Why only protect the doctors who are in the room when the hospital administrators still have to go in the room and fill out paperwork with the patients, they're still exposed. I think there's a lot of we lot of not thinking that or not The survey that I'm citing suggests that there's not a lot of common sense involved. Well, let's give her two smokers. Why don't we push them that way? Yeah, that's ridiculous. That's a choice. That sure is and they're all in and eating yourself to death. It is also a choice being way overweight. Yeah. That's a choice. Okay, 15 past the hour. Some things to think about about your nose and your body and keeping it clean. And this has become a daily message here on the D. J.

We want to make sure that nothing slows down the administration of vaccine other than the pace in which vaccine arrives in the state. Until now, vaccine data has been scattered over 58 counties, Most on the ground distribution so far has been left up to local health departments.

The My turn system is already up and running in L, A and San Diego, which were part of the pilot program on the initial rollout. Only City Council today past two motions on equitable vaccine distribution. The first aims to identify city facilities in higher risk and low income communities of color that could be used to distribute the vaccine. Second intends to find strategies for the equitable equitable distribution of vaccines to those communities.
