  • I had an extra hour in my day and decided to stop by Mr. Olmstead's class (yes he's still teaching) at South San HS. I was thrilled to get their realtime feedback on what's happening in their community, and explain how things work at city hall.

  • When my lil brother comes in from Army station, my mom calls in taquito reinforcements.
  • Emergencies remind us of our humanity and interdependence. Standing behind the Governor, I was pleased to hear that no one seeking shelter or safety should fear being turned away. I pray our leaders keep such convictions and compassion when the clouds clear.‬ No one should fear coming forward when they need help.
  • SAPD Officer Mikes and I checking in on homeless; especially those in drainage ditches. I'm glad we did, many didn't know what was coming and assumed they would ride it out like always. They'll be finding shelter and help for the next few days. #HurricaneHarvey
  • Multiple Agencies (SAPD, SAFD, State Officials, Military, County), Hospitals and Shelters all under one roof at Emergency Operations Center bracing for #HurricaneHarvey. This will be a scale we haven't seen.
  • As I walk to the front to address neighborhood crowd: "Before we start tonights meeting, lets discuss the elephant in the room....It's #UglyTieDay at City Hall. Okay, now let's talk about your traffic."
