December 7, 2005
A city committee today unanimously recommended to
the full Board of Supervisors appointment of David Campos and
Petra DeJesus to the San Francisco Police Commission.
Both candidates embraced current city movement toward
the concept of community
Petra DeJesus was the early unanimous choice of
the three-member Rules Committee, comprised of Chair Michela Alioto-Pier,
Ross Mirkarimi and Aaron Peskin.
Alioto-Pier initially preferred John Bittoff for
the second slot. Bittoff is is a retired naval admiral, and now
serves as executive director of the School District maintenance
and operations department.
She joined Peskin and Mirkarimi in supporting Campos,
after her motion to recommend Bittoff failed on a 1-2 vote.
Applicant h. brown, a
political satirist, briefly disrupted the meeting with complaint
that he had not been informed of today's committee hearing.
'Don't yell at me,' Mirkarimi insists to brown.
Peskin produced a letter dated December 7, 2005,
informing brown of committee hearing date.
h. brown told the committee, "The problem with
the SFPD is the citizens are not in charge of the police department,
the mayor's not in charge of the police department and the police
chief's not in charge of the police department. Gary Delagnes
is in charge. Citizens, you have no control over your police department
and that's a problem".
h. brown speaks with POA President Gary Delagnes moments before
brown testified before the committee.
