But in typical BG fashion, we have to start off the. Conversation by talking about Howard Brown rose got involved in Politics Lynn, let's start with you. What made you want to do this work I met you when you are on Standard Booker's presidential race landward with on my best friends in the booker who has the flow colder actor we immediately had energy I appreciate offer letting even on here I. Think what's so I just? WanNa start. It's it's always a struggle for us like Asian women thinking. Okay. If this is a speech for Black and Brown women do we do we belong in us as organizers in the space that we challenge ourselves on every single day? I, appreciate the all see us as part of his fight Abdu I'm no my start in politics it was in high school. I had to fulfil my community service hours as Eilly volunteer for my local mayor's race. Obviously had no idea what organizing wise what it meant to talk to voters. And it wasn't until our college when I was organizing around development movement was like Oh shit. Okay. So this is what this is but I think what's really interesting is that it's I think for me because I get asked that a lot especially with the next generation of organizers coming in and it wasn't so much like what what started this interest. But it's been in especially in the last few years it's been the women around me that have kept. You know and it's like it's it's I. Think we often you'll so burnt out in this process but it is absolutely been like this networks like very intentional network of women that have kept here. Sorry and we will go to Glenda and it's weird for me. y'All not to see Granddad two or three times a month. That's how often we would just see each other at different events conferences in even when we get on the phone I'm like it's my Glenn like I miss you so much but I'm super excited to have her here. Today Higher Heights. It's an organization that I've been involved with or a long time. Now is an organization that I give a lot of my time my coins as well because that's important the when that's how us what each of this work you know I come from a politically active family I mean I don't think they overtly would call themselves that but others did right and so I am a daughter of a Caribbean immigrant migrated here. My mother picked him up next door literally like WHO's this guy next door and David got married and? Had three children and the baby and my father was a community activist right in. Here's a man that didn't become a citizen until the later part of his life because he wanted to vote for his friend Joe Lieberman and But everybody assumed that he was like he was the political light Caribbean political maker in the community about making sure people registered to vote he was very active in and So was my mother on my eighteenth birthday I'm sure my parents gave me a jewelry because that's what they gave me at every birthday. Don't remember what was didn't don't wear it is but they registered me devote my mother put me in her car drove me down to city hall and registered to vote in until the day she died she called me and my brothers on major elections to make sure we. voted.

Stave gotta get you on the phone here. Hold on. Steve Welcome. But what do you know? Yeah. Yeah. So yesterday I had been asked by the mayor's office to be the pool reporter for an event yesterday to announce testing that was going to be tested among La Firefighters, and at the end is all waste We ask questions that are like of other stories and I was representing daily press course. What happens is I take in questions from all the reporters in town, consolidate them, and then I asked the questions to me or in person, and of course, there were a lot of questions came up about Rick Jacobs about the status of the investigation of basically what is this? For. The city. So in this first cut cut eight, I asked the mayor flat out. Can you tell us the status of the investigation I don't know that's run by the city attorney's office because the highest standard is to make sure that's independent. That's not something that I will run. That's not something that I oversee and reports to an independently elected official again to that law firm is separate from the law firm that's defending the city. So that is the highest standard to make sure that we truth that least investigation sometimes can take weeks or months, but you'd have to ask the city. Attorney. And I did ask the city attorney in the city attorney's Office Tadic cannot comment on any kind of ongoing investigation I wanted to clarify because if you listen to the mayor, he's sort of implies that there are two different law firms looking into this the one that's defending the city against the lawsuit from the LAPD officer and another that perhaps is doing an independent investigation on behalf of the city just in terms of the employment and. So, one law firm has hired to say it's not true and the other law firm has hired to see if it is true. Well but this is what I was trying to ascertain from the city attorney's office to when I reached out to them. Yesterday I should clarify if it's one or two law firms, the city attorney said there's only one law firm we know of that we've hired to defend the lawsuits and that's it. It's another investigation Times reported last week that the same law firm that going to represent the city to defend against the lawsuit by the police officer has one employee there who's going to handle quote the independent investigation into the claims so I think what you learned. Later Steve is correct or is just one law from involved here doing different things. Matt follow up question based on that and the other questions coming from other other station yesterday I simply put it this way. This'll be be I said, we'll mayor was all the corruption going on within the city council and these allegations against Rick, checkups how can you assure Andrew Lean? Lena's That everything is well and everything is fine at city. Hall. You know the system has to work and I think the highest standard is about making sure when those incidents that they are investigated and that both parties accused accusers are able to have that due process. That's what's been followed. That's what will be followed and you know dumb people will do dumb things and I'm not commenting on what happened here that has to be investigated. But obviously, with the corruption we said is you have to strengthen the rules. I've been a longtime proponent of no donations from anybody who has any business before the city where You have to recuse yourself from a vote, but people always find a way around those and that's why we're pleased to see law enforcement do its job and to let people know very strong message corruption will not be.

It's really the volume of absentee ballots. Well, we don't know how many people actually applied for one because the city Board of Elections stop making that data public. What we do know is that more than 778,000 ballots got mailed out and more than 408,000 got return. We're not really sure what happened to the remaining 370,000 ballots. Still taking into account the number of people who voted in person. This means nearly 50% of the votes cast in this primary were through absentee ballots and just by comparison for the presidential primary in 2016 which, as you remember, was much more competitive. Absentee ballots accounted for 2% of the votes in that race, so unprecedented volume is definitely one reason for delay. Another reason is that these absentee ballots are going through a pretty rigorous review. And so some of the ones that were returned still won't end up counting. I'm talking about that review. How does the board of elections determine which votes do and don't count? So staff from the buoy reviews the ballots. When they come in. They sort through which ones arrived on time and are postmarked correctly. Then they open batches of envelopes and determine if there any other reasons to disqualify them. Once that process is completely actually run the ballots through the scanners, it's really akin to what they do during a recount. And also you've got observers from the press in good government groups and campaigns at all of these sites where they're watching this count, and let's not forget this is all happening during a pandemic. So there's another layer of safety protocols. On top of all of this. What kind of progress is being made? So the counting is complete in Staten Island, which, of course, had the fewest number of ballots. But in the other four boroughs where we see some more close contests, the county continued through the weekend, and we'll keep on going throughout this week. You reported last week that some ballots may be disqualified for missing postmarks. Has that happened. Yes, but we don't know how many because the BOT has not made that information public, and I really want to stress that ballots are invalidated for a host of reasons. I spoke with Ali Nagy. Me. He's a lawyer well versed in election law. He is representing clients who are running for office across the city and was also on the ballot himself for a party position in Queens. That's where he's been watching the count. And he says. The biggest issue he has been seeing in terms of why envelopes are invalidated is missing signatures, and he also says, practically speaking, this is something to be a weak and easily remedy in the future with better design. I often parts put a giant yellow sticker on the document before e mail to my client, so they don't forget to sign and I don't see any reason why we can't do that, with the ballot envelope going forward. No. Najimy also saw ballots thrown out because people didn't get the actual ballot inserted correctly into the ballot envelope. It was pretty tight or they didn't seal it properly. There's a political club in Queens called the new reformers who were running a slate of candidates for district leader which is a party position, and they did manage to get some information about invalidation rates from the board of Elections. So, according to those numbers for Queens, the borough wide average from validation is about 24%. So that's roughly one out of every four ballots. Now, I should be clear that the bill, we will not confirm those numbers yet those air unofficial numbers Bridget. This is the first primary election in recent history when absentee ballots made up such a large percentage of the vote, and in some cases it actually exceeded in person voting. So this count is really important. What races are still outstanding. You know, David, really most contests are outstanding, You know, talking about Queens were still waiting for a final winner in that Queens borough president primary up in New York 16 which is a congressional primary and Bronx and Westchester. Jamal Bowman already declared victory over incumbent Elliott Angle, but we're going to have deceived the court proceeding. Slow things down there. Same thing in New York 15 Richie Tours Heldon early lead, but again lots of counting happening there. One of the most closely watched congressional primaries is New York 12 where incumbent Carolyn Maloney faced the stiffest competition from attorneys Suraj Hotel. It was his second time running against her. As a primary day. Maloney was in the lead by just over 600 votes. But about 60% of the total vote in that race is from absentee ballots, and they are just beginning to count ballots from those district's today. Are there any proposals to make our elections run better, especially before the presidential election in November. Yes, there are. There are several proposals in state lawmakers are expected back in session the week of July 20th Now, whether they will actually take any of them up is another story. But in terms of what they could do, some changes are really straight forward. Even though we've talked about all the challenges with voting by absentee ballot, it did mean fewer people gathering a pole sites, which was really the gold during the pandemic, so one of the proposals would allow voters to vote this way again November citing the public health emergency. Keep in mind Governor. Cuomo's executive orders only applied to this primary. But Senator Allesandro Biaggi of the Bronx and Westchester has been carrying a bill since March. That would make this change by statute. We've got to make sure that you workers and the board of elections Especially have clarity now on how voters will be able to safely cast their ballots in November that the B A. We can start preparing as soon as possible. They're several other proposals that would improve the absentee ballot system and make it harder for those ballots to be tossed out. Another change would make sure that ballots weren't eliminated for things like stray marks if the intent of the voter is clear. Another would create a system that would allow voters to fix an error like if they didn't sign their ballot before it's eliminated. And, of course, an issue we've been watching Senator Zellner Murray has a bill that would presume any ballot that arrives at the board of Elections within seven days of the election was mailed on time. Even if it doesn't have a postmark. And what if the Legislature doesn't act Is there any other way changes can be made ahead of November. So if the Legislature refuses Jack there could be action in the court system. Last week, the League of Women voters filed a federal lawsuit against the New York State Board of Elections, arguing that too many absentee ballots get thrown out. There's no hearing set for that case. But if there is action ahead of November that could definitely lead to some changes. Also, the governor could issue more executive orders, although as I reported last week, several elected officials and candidates sent a letter to the governor urging him to address this postmark Disqualification issue. And his spokesman basically dismissed it. All right, Bridget. Thank you. For all of these updates. Bridget Bergen is W when we seize City hall and politics Reporter Thanks, David.

"Our first question comes from a listener in San Francisco's South Beach neighborhood. I'm Kevin I was born and raised originally in Texas but I've lived on on the west coast since two thousand and two day. Kevin was walking around San Francisco checking out a display of historical flags outside City Hall. I noticed you all the other flags sort of made sense. Yeah Down with the shift. You had the flag of Mexico things like that. But then I saw Texas the Texas state flag flying outside San Francisco City Hall. The Texas flag is made out of three bars and start. There's one vertical bar on the left. That blue with a white five pointed pointed star in the center and then there are two horizontal bars and the rest of it White are above red wine here to answer why there's a Texas flag in front of City Hall is reporter Ana Decline Hanukah. I love you so first off. Walk me through what these flags outside City Hall even are okay. So if you walk up to City Hall in San Francisco you'll walk through two rows of nine flags each they all represent these different points in American history. It's kind of like walking through a time line of these important moments like you have betsy. Betsy Ross's thirteen stars in a circle that original American flag. Or you've got the classic. Don't tread on me flag with rattlesnake which would become the navy's first flag there's also a republic of California flag which kind of looks like our current state flag. But a little bit more of a I would say like a kid druick Shen rudimentary. Bear looks a little bit more like a pig to me just to me. You know maybe other people disagree But the state did upgrade so when California became a state and joined join the Union in eighteen fifty Later on the flag would change. Now we have the ferocious grizzly right but as our question Asker Kevin Notes. There's a Texas Texas flag Among these flags outside City Hall so why Texas that flag is technically the Republic of Texas flag so also in the mid eighteen hundreds the republic of Texas existed for about ten years. It was its own independent republic recognized by the United States. At the end of that run it became the twenty eighth state but that flag stayed the same. So it's kind of hard to differentiate between the Republic of Texas flag and the State of Texas flag but I'm told by our city's parks and Rec Department that it's the Republic of Texas flag. It just looks exactly the same basic. Aren't you access flick. Okay cool so. The inclusion of you know flags like like the Republic of California and the Republic of Texas. They were kind of odd choices at the time But the people who curated flags for inclusion in the eighteen flags felt they represented important if not sometimes tumultuous points in our country's history flags you know certainly throughout history. There's many examples of when they've been pretty controversial. Are there any other other interesting examples of ones that have been outside our city hall well since you mentioned it. The confederate flag actually flew for a short time outside of San Francisco City Hall. Oh but it was removed shortly after it went up because people protested it was originally part of those eighteen flags that went up in nineteen sixty four and then civil rights groups and others said hey you know we don't want that representing our city. Wow well there's a story that you will not find that Civic Center Plaza these days but you can find details about all the rest of the flags on these little plaque set center at the bottom of each flagpoles can check that out If you can't make it out to Civic Center Plaza you can also head online to bake curious dot org where we will have information about all the eighteen flags that are out there in front of City Hall all right. Well thanks for finding the answer and you're welcome. Our next question comes from a listener. Who didn't want to be recorded? But I can tell you. She's a big history buff during the early days of European settlement in the bay area public. Life centered around the town square. But these days there are dozens and dozens of square scattered all around in San Francisco. Our listener wants to know which was the first public square in the city. And what happened. There we sent reporter Mari Soul Medina Katina to hunt down the answer today. I'm at Portsmouth. Square in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown around here are a lot of GRANDMAS and grandpas playing playing cards. I've heard this is the city's first square which makes sense because it's in the center of everything and the TRANSAMERICA building funding. If literally right across from the park there are some rich. History here at Portsmouth Square but is this the first square for San Francisco to find out. I met historian Christopher pollock before this became the city of San Francisco known as your but Plano and It was occupied first by Spanish and then later by Mexicans pollock told me the plaza was the center of government affairs for the Spanish and Mexican settlers. flers so Portsmouth Square is the first square. It was around before San Francisco became San Francisco and before it even had the name Portsmouth Square. The name would come when the Americans arrived during the Mexican American war that broke out in eighteen. Forty six. It's the two year war that resulted in the US. Acquiring half of Mexico's territory to fulfill. What many Americans believed was there manifest destiny any captain John?

The he she's gotten a stiff arm from everybody at city hall, and we're going to have her explain their behavior. Because now she's filed a five million dollar legal claim saying that Garcetti city attorney, Mike Fuhr whole city council allowed the garbage in the feces to accumulate which led to the rats and the fleas and her typhus. So let's get let's get lozad here. Liz, welcome to John and Ken show. Again. How are you? I'm doing better. Thank you very much for asking. Yeah. How is your health? First of all. I I was finally able to a doctor on Thursday. And I got the Okita by the all clear to go back to work. Oh, so that's why you had much better. Good. All right. So now, there's there's a story here that you've you're not being allowed to return to work. What's that about? The I was cleared to return to well since I was sick since I got sick and the doctor wouldn't allow me to drive on December twentieth. Twenty eighteen I have been trying to work from either an office in San Pedro where I live or from home just doing one motion work, and they for months have refused that accommodation. So when I got the awkward to drive and go back to work on Thursday. I went back toward on Friday. And my office had been the my computer my desk, Mike share had been removed. And when I went to HR to give them my return to work letter day and ask when the stuff was going to come back. They put me on ministry to fleas, and that we'll let you know when to come back to work and where to show up. What's that about he being? Punished. I don't know they haven't they haven't expounded upon that. So they just I assume I'm being punished, but because I filed a grievance since they weren't accommodating the medical restriction. So I filed that on Wednesday. And then on Friday me home on on paid administrative leave. So now, I'm healthy fully capable of working than they won't allow me to. So people understand case they missed the story of the first time around. Describe your symptoms. Why were you unable to work for so many months? I had I basically had bacterial meningitis. It was typhus that was causing with the bacteria that caused the minutes Itis, but I had the worst headache. I ever had. I lost my equilibrium. I couldn't eat. I had one hundred degree fever, and it almost killed me that and it took months to recover from the the one of the things that I walked because typhus affected by spinal column, and my brain one of the things that I lost my equilibrium. And so it took a long time. Even once the type is was cured. Bacteria was killed. It's still a long time for my sense of balance to come back, and I had vertigo. And so the the doctors wouldn't let me drive because three or four. Times a week the world would just spin. And it's not safe to drive a car when that happens. Our euro. So you're taking months off to recover from this terrible illness, which was caused by their neglect legally, what are your protections to hold onto your job. I mean, could they just fire you could they permanently walk you from working and pay you for years on end? I mean, what what can they do to you in theory? They can do that. I don't I don't understand why they're doing what they're doing in in. I had run out of six times. So they cut off my health insurance. And I was seeing the industrial Dr through the workers compensation program off your health insurance. Yes. They did. They ran out of that. And that that's a legal Hoover. Did they have to hide? I know they don't have to do that. I can't believe that. Wait a second. We've got typhus from from them allowing all the feces and garbage to build up around the homeless, and then they cut off your medical insurance. Seriously. Seriously. What the hell's going out of his mind? Well, this is this is the city attorney's office. It's they they and then the city attorney's office had that my typhus was not industrially related. So I didn't I no longer have access to the industrial Dr to the infectious disease control, doctor what does that mean industrial related in? It means it's not work related. I'm sorry. Hey, it's it they closed the workers comp case saying that I didn't get the typhus at work. Even though I have five medical personnel. That say that I contracted typhus at city hall east to almost to a ninety nine percent certainty that I contracted it there because they had tons of as and in fact, her western hiawatha carpeting removed from his office because of all the fleas. Yes. At the same time that I was infected right now, I saw this coming because Liz, I think the last time we had you on they Trump it into report that they sent in the extermination people. They couldn't find any fleas in city hall. I think they were trying to set you up for exactly what you're talking about that you could not have gotten this type as at work. Right. The the problem with that report is that when I was in fact, did it was mid October. And it was eighty degrees outside please survive and thrive heat, they are little per insect. So. From stepping aids fifteenth during that week, it was sixty degrees outside and fleas are dormant in the winter. So of course, they wouldn't find any fleas because it wasn't hot. Liz, can you hold on? We're going to talk. Yeah. This is Liz Greenwood we're trying to get the phone a little bit improved. The signal. She is a deputy city attorney for the city of LA we've been talking to on and off now for months last October. She got sick eventually was diagnosed with typhus, which here's the key to the story. She knows came from city hall east and her workplace, but the city has done since then you heard about our insurance and worker's comp claim is closed and not wanting to return to work. They're trying to shut her out here because they don't want this story to be perpetuated that she got typhus at work. They're trying to make it look like there's no fleas here. Whenever happened to her happens somewhere else a bunch of raw when we know some of the vagrants downtown had typhus, and there's a lot of trash around city hall. It was typhus, and it was because of the homeless, and because of the rats and the fleas that's really what happened and there are a bunch of scumbags if they're trying to so Ryan a claim. Anything else just Garcetti and fewer and the rest of meant any conscience at all. We'll talk about her claim five million dollars, which she can understand. Now why she's doing this? But we'll get more details when we come back. John and Ken show.
