Supervisors play politics with Sunshine appointments

The Board of Supervisors today [Tues/20] considers reappointing three Sunshine Ordinance Task Force members after the board’s Rules Committee last week blocked other qualified nominees, including those named by organizations with designated seats on the board, a move critics say undermines the independence of the body.

SOTF is responsible for holding city officials to the open government ideals of the city’s voter-approved Sunshine Ordinance. When government makes backroom deals or shields public records from disclosure, the ordinance allow citizens (and journalists) to appeal to the SOTF, which rules on whether the ordinance was violated.   

Sunshine advocates say the supervisors are stacking the task force with ineffective political appointees and barring the appointments of qualified, independent candidates. The Sunshine Ordinance, which Bay Guardian editors helped create in the ‘90s, gives New American Media, The League of Women Voters, and the Society of Professional Journalists-Northern California direct appointments to SOTF, pending supervisorial approval.

The SPJ appointed Electronic Frontier Foundation staff attorney Mark Rumold, who works on EFF’s Transparency Project and has uncovered documents exposing federal surveillance activities, and Ali Winston, a local journalist who has broken big stories for the Center for Investigative Reporting and other media outlets using public records.

Rumold is considered one of the leading Freedom of Information Act litigators in the country, but was humble in his appointment interview at the Rules Committee. “I’m hoping to apply my experience to the task force to make San Francisco an open and more efficient government,” he said.

But those appointments and others were blocked last week at the Rules Committee by Sup. Katy Tang, who told the Guardian, “Personally, I would have liked to see stronger applicants,” claiming that they didn’t seem to have a good understanding of the Sunshine Ordinance and that she wanted more ethnic diversity on the body.

Yet the backdrop of these blocked appointments is a running battle that the SOTF has had with the Board of Supervisors over the last couple years, stemming mostly from the SOTF finding that some supervisors violated the ordinance in 2011 by not making public a package of late amendments while passing the massive Parkmerced project.

The City Attorney’s Office disagreed with the SOTF interpretation, just as it did earlier that year when the SOTF voted to change its bylaws surrounding how a quorum is calculated. They were the latest battles in a longstanding battle between SOTF and the City Attorney’s Office, which sunshine advocates criticize as being too lenient on city agencies that refuse to release documents.

“I was around when the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force decided to change some of the rules against the advice of the City Attorney’s Office,” Tang told us, calling such actions improper conduct and saying she won’t support any SOTF members who took part in that vote.

Thomas Peele, who co-chairs SPJ’s Freedom of Information Committee, which made the appointments, told us that he understands Tang’s points about diversity, but he doesn’t understand why Rumold and Winston were rejected, calling them strong candidates.

“We put up excellent, well qualified candidates,” he said. “One of the country’s leading FOIA lawyers and a very good police watchdog reporter doing work with Propublica and CIR.”

While critics contend the Tang and other supervisors are trying to weaken SOTF as a watchdog agency, Tang told us it wasn’t about SPJ’s appointments, noting that she also delayed the League of Women Voters appointment of Allyson Washburn. But she said all remain under consideration and could come up for a vote next month.

“I have every intention of supporting someone put forth by those organizations,” Tang told us. “I will have a conversation with both those organizations about their nominees.”

The SOTF has long struggled to fulfill its mandate. It has little means of enforcing its rulings, which usually require further actions by the City Attorney’s Office or the San Francisco Ethics Commission to have teeth.

After the Rules Committee blocked the reappointment of Bruce Wolfe in 2012, citing his role in defying the City Attorney’s Office, it was essentially dormant for more than four months because it couldn’t meet without a seated member from the disability community, until Bruce Oka was finally appointed in November 2012.

Currently, the Sunshine Task Force has a backlog of over 62 complaints against city agencies for not adhering to the city’s sunshine records policies, dating back to 2012. The three re-appointments the Rules Committee did approve, which will go before the Board of Supervisors today, are Todd David, David Pilpel and Louise Fischer -- none of whom have much support among longtime Sunshine Ordinance advocates.

“The supervisors,” Peele told us, “appear to have an issue with having a strong Sunshine Task Force.”

Karen Clopton, past president of the League of Women Voters said she was disappointed that Washburn, a former League board member, wasn’t appointed and said the SOTF should be independent: “It’s extremely important for us to make sure we entrust such an important task to an individual who is trustworthy, nonpartisan, and devoted to nonpartisanship.”

costs a lot in time, money and hassle, while the only beneficiaries are those who like to cause trouble.

I suspect the Mayor and the Supes know this, and act accordingly, knowing that the public outrage will be trivial and confined to the usual suspects.

Nobody seems to care about the terms and conditions of using Facebook either but that doesn't mean they aren't affected. Facebook sells private info for profit and even owns each and every photo posted. How long before the NSA tries to figure out how to profit from their data collection of your info?

Many times public records conflicts involve the same people because most people rely on just a handful of individuals for their info. People don't go researching documents to check out every news story; they access news media expecting the journalists have done that for them and will distribute what they've learned. That's why many public records requests in SF and the state are from journalists.

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 9:24 pm

The city often forces people to make multiple requests because they refuse to respond, improperly withhold records on the first request, or respond with non-relevant information. They delay in the hopes the requestor will become discouraged and just go away; only the persistent will receive the information they should have been given on the first request.

Two whistleblowers and a journalist had to make multiple requests over several years before the Controller finally admitted money had been taken by the city from hospitalized elderly people; the money was returned but the Controller refused to disclose the persons involved in the theft.

One MUNI employee had to make multiple requests for an investigation report that affected his employment. MUNI said the report didn’t exist but the employee knew it did and persisted. MUNI finally produced the report to the Task Force.

Two street artists had to make multiple requests over many years to try to show that the SFAC was mishandling funds. They were vilified by SFAC for their Sunshine complaints. The Task Force asked the Board of Supes to investigate but the requests were ignored. Eventually the director of SFAC was found to have misappropriated funds and forced to resign. The Civil Grand Jury finally also did a report on it.

One woman requested basic information from the DA’s office on Kamala Harris prior to her election as AG. The DA’s office admitted the info should be produced but delayed responding, creating the need for multiple requests and hearings. They didn’t produce the info until after the election and after the woman had to file a lawsuit with the Superior Court.

One man requested information on the SF Library’s income and expenditures. The Library dodged responding, requiring multiple Sunshine requests and hearings. The Library finally revealed that it could not account for $4M.

The list goes on and on. Complaining that many requests come from just a few people is a red herring to distract from the information eventually revealed with persistence.

Jason Grant Garza here ... Dear HOPE ??? Would that be like the time Ms. Gleghorn I believe in case 11081 (2012) told the task force that I was REQUIRED to sign a HIPAA release form in order to get my own medical records? Would that also be where the LOVELY MINISTRY decided to split my case and look for a HIPAA expert that they never could find? Did not the MINISTRY close for 6 months afterward and what happened to my case and the medical records? Interestingly enough on 5/19/14 Ms. Gleghorn appeared before the MINISTRY in my case # 14005 to state that I did not need to sign. I will be posting the videos shortly. When I informed the MINISTRY that they had been lied to and deceived ... what happened? Was there a precedent set for future MINISTRY decisions ... hell no. Was Ms. Gleghorn held to account ? Hell no. Was I helped by the MINISTRY ... hell no. Now mind you this was for an IDR in Sept 2013 that only now in May 2014 was heard past the bylaws of the MINISTRY requiring 45 days. As a matter of fact Ms. Johnson ... when I wrote to you in regard to 10081 and even how the decision was incorrectly worded ... did you contact me back and correct? Did Mr. Wolfe find the HIPAA expert? Did Gleghorn or the city attorney's incorrect advise NOT harm me more? Does the ineffectual, toothless, complainant harming MINISTRY that sends ( what was that Bay Guardian article http://www.sfbg.com/2009/05/05/making-sunshine-work ) to ETHICS for enforcement and fails ... IS that helping the complainant or just as acting as the city shill to tire, vex and harass the complainant. Isn't JUSTICE DELAYED JUSTICE DENIED ....

Tang is off to a good start as a politician. She says one thing and then does another - started off her Task Force of diversity by insisting on appointing two white males. You've come a long way, baby.

You mean like David Campos co-sponsoring (along with Mirkarimi) a six-year tax break for start-up tech companies and then later deriding them for "not paying their fair share" in order to pander to SEIU when he's up for election? A tax break by the way, that actually cost the city MORE money than the Mid-Market incentive.

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 8:33 pm

The Twitter tax break cost the city like sales hurt car dealerships.

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 8:52 pm

I mean more like David Chiu claiming to be just a "different shade of blue" than David Campos even though David Chiu's company Grassroots put Randy Tate, former head of the Christian Coalition, on its Board of Directors as well as hiring Bill McIntyre, former spokesman for the N.R.A., as Executive Vice President.

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 8:56 pm

So in other words, duck the subject when a progressive bullshits. Got it.

As for Grassroots. Was Chiu the sole arbitrator over who gets put on their board? Did he vote to put them on the board? Did they ever have an anti-gay client or the NRA as a client? If not, what's your point?

And Chiu is a Democrat. He's a moderate by San Francisco standards, yes. But in 95% of this country, he would be considered a complete leftist. If you took a step outside of your insular, progressive bubble, you'd know that.

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 9:27 pm
Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 9:38 pm

And he's still a moderate Democrat. He's just not as leftist as you want. Which also means he appeals to more voters in SF than does Campos.

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 10:20 pm

Chiu likes to take credit for starting Grassroots and enjoyed the profits it made but when asked to take responsibility for the choices made by the company to generate those profits, he (and apparently his supporters) claims it’s someone else’s fault. Nothing he could do.

Posted by Hope Johnson on May. 21, 2014 @ 9:44 am

Hope, you're just not being *realistic* because you are a progressive who will never ever compromise. David Chiu knows how to compromise. Chiu is so adept at compromise because he has no reliable principles or values so there is no shame to his game. That is why David Chiu is such a "success" and we with values and principles are relegated to the gutters of local politics.

You're usually so good serving as the mouthpiece for the City Attorney's Office when he sues irresponsible SRO hotel owners placing low income people at risk of homelessness and jeopardizing their health, but on SOTF the Guardian doesn't bother to get a quote from Herrera's public information officers. What's up with that?

Posted by Guest on May. 20, 2014 @ 8:51 pm

Jason Grant Garza here ... as someone pointed out to me " I just realized that the correct interval between legal meetings should be figured from the last legal meeting of the Task Force on May 2, 2012, to the next legal meeting of November 7, 2012, six months and five days." So I guess you can also check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rradxaqGaDk and other prior MINISTRY videos. Wonder how many other videos could be correct also ... maybe some of the supervisors videos ???

"I was around when the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force decided to change some of the rules against the advice of the City Attorney’s Office,” Tang told us, calling such actions improper conduct and saying she won’t support any SOTF members who took part in that vote.

So does that mean that JUDGES are "DUTY" bound to accept what their attorneys tell them? Isn't he MINISTRY suppose to be the FACT FINDERS?

Supervisor Katy Tang deployed a litmus test against applicants to the SOTF at the 5/15/14 Rules Committee meeting, namely; submission to the advice of whatever Deputy City Attorney is assigned to the Task Force.

She, and some other Supervisors, won't be comfortable with SPJ's attorney nominee - Mark Rumold, who is independent.

Every sunshine complaint is directed against the City.
Some are even directed against the City Attorney's Office for wrongfully withholding public records.
The City is the respondent in every case brought to the SOTF.
And the City Attorney represents and defends the City.
So, the City Attorney assigned to "advise" the SOTF is inherently conflicted, despite so-called "ethical walls".

Yet, Supervisor Tang would have the applicants swear that the City Attorney is legally infallible, before granting her approval.

If the City Attorney holds legal supremacy, there is no need for the SOTF. All sunshine complaints could be adjudicated by the City Attorney. Trouble is, the voters didn't want that that kind of "efficiency".

One reason that the Ordinance requires a lawyer nominated by the Society of Professional Journalists is to counter-balance the potentially conflicted City Attorney, who may not be as well-versed in First Amendment law.

This vital SPJ seat has been kept vacant for 2 years (attorney Ben Rosenfeld was similarly disregarded in 2012) in order to keep the SOTF subservient to the City Attorney's Office (City Hall), and to prevent the SOTF from serving as a forum for informed debate of complex sunshine issues. In addition, the SOTF has been stacked with fawning candidates who answered "Yes" to Tang's test question.

Supervisor Tang's litmus test violates the spirit of the Sunshine Ordinance.

Jason Grant Garza here ... would this be the same city attorney that I disagreed with that had my case thrown out of federal court in 2003 (C02-3485PJH) that the city signed a confession with the Office of Inspection General in 2007 admitting fault and guilt yet LEAVING their innocent vindicated victim for DEAD? http://myownprivateguantanamo.com/settle1.html

Is this the same one that is suing nevada for patient dumping yet 7 years after a signed confession admitting to a CRIME (Patient Dumping) that I have an arrest record NEVER having been arrested before that I have sought explanation that has not been explained?

However this PRESUPPOSES the MYTH that the MINISTRY that can actually ENFORCE ... what was that article about 14 times ??? In the meantime ... just more HARM ..... how long now? False HOPE is worse and more INSIDIOUS than no HELP. What happened in case 12056 .... or 11048 ??? What happened at ETHICS? Toothless, false/no result is compounding harm ... is there NO SHAME? http://myownprivateguantanamo.com/ratched23.html

Attorneys advise their clients as to the range of possible options and the range of outcomes associated with those options and their clients make the calls on how to proceed.

If the new standard is that the legal advice of the City Attorney to clients carries the force of public policy and the law itself, then why not just elect a City Attorney as a technocrat, dispense with the rest of the City Family (to the bottom of the bay, anyone?) and be done with it?

Watch for chewing, especially around items such as electric cords.
Instead of courting athlete's foot, you should at least try to train your ferret to use a
litter box. It comes in two forms: juvenile (usually found
in ferrets under the age of 14 months) and classic, which is usually found in middle aged and older ferrets.

“I was around when the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force decided to change some of the rules against the advice of the City Attorney’s Office." Isn't this a normal occurrence from time to time? The task force doesn't work for the city attorney.

Sunshine is the best disinfectant for corruption at Silly Hall.

Posted by Guest on May. 21, 2014 @ 7:41 pm

Sunshine not only disinfects ... it opens up dialogue, thought process, full disclosure; however if the truth produces no results no enforcement then the serial violators win. Check out the Sunshine Task Force Website to see Orders of Determination for the last few years ... can you say serial violators ... how does this happen unless the system is RIGGED, corrupt and ineffectual .... what happens when they got sent for enforcement? Shall I start with a small list ... 12056, 11048 or http://www.sfbg.com/2009/05/05/making-sunshine-work

However as the SPIN masters can spin the "sharing economy" as being good for everyone ... so can the city ... oh we have a process for you ... SUNSHINE ... WHAT it doesn't work? How can you say that it ? IT is NOT as if we have been taken to court and lost over sunshine or public documents BUT trust us ... we (City Family) and the city attorney know what is best. http://www.sfbg.com/2007/06/27/crazy

For as in Sunshine the TRUTH will out and as with the NSA and SNOWDEN sometimes the whole truth takes a while and a lot of sunshine and attention to detail.

Full sunshine also HEALS ....

NOW ask yourself .. if the supervisors truly CARED ... why the EMPTY seats for so long ...oh, that's right ... NO DUE process ... 6 required votes ... and WHEN was the last time the MINISTRY had 11 seated members? The BOS couldn't even fill the MINISTRY after the "NUCLEAR WINTER" (but this is another interesting mystery) ended in 2012 nor NOW. What is that collective thing I hear on the second floor of city hall from the supervisors ... that THEY CARE?

Ask the RIGHT questions ... remember sunshine cleans, disinfects and HEALS.

Go back and read again the pertinent comments of Hope Johnson, an excellent former chair of the task force, and Derek Kerr. They make clear the incalculable value of the sunshine task force as a "people's court" and why the anti-sunshine gang at city hall is continuing its all out attack to wreck it and the underlying sunshine ordinance.

The sunshine ordinance is the first and still the best open government ordinance of its kind in the country.

Jason Grant Garza here ... lovely cheering bandwagon; however even in the PEOPLE'S COURT a JUDGE holds WRONG DOERS accountable. At the MINISTRY .... there is NO ENFORCEMENT. Do you sir NOT remember your own editorial written in 2009 entitled Making Sunshine Work where the byline was Fourteen times the task force has asked Ethics for action, and 14 times those cases have been dismissed - with little serious investigation at http://www.sfbg.com/2009/05/05/making-sunshine-work .

Now while I appreciate good cheerleading ... to offer a rigged, no result producing system that is by your very own admission is NOT having its decisions/rulings acted upon and shot down when pushed up for ENFORCEMENT is a false choice. It further HARMS the victim and whether by design or not results in wonderful " Risk Management" Shill Action for the CITY. Wasn't there a report asked for by a supervisor to see HOW MUCH SUNSHINE COSTS ... the report should have been ... HOW MUCH DOES THE CITY SAVE FROM LAWSUITS after people give up hope being played by this RIGGED sunshine?

I too support sunshine, accountability and consequence ... to BAD there is NONE at the MINISTRY.

In the past I offered the MINISTRY a solution .... DO NOT HOLD MEETINGS until you are granted POWER to ENFORCE. Get out and tell the PUBLIC why since you have NO ENFORCEMENT powers and EXPLAIN in full sunshine that you DO NOT want to offer false process and false hope which had been the case in the past since the MINISTRY had NO POWER. Wow, this might even clear up the serial offenders and allow the people to BELIEVE again.

As far as "The sunshine ordinance is the first and best ordinance of its kind anywhere in the country, if not the world. " What about Connecticut ... or was that a different editor? http://www.sfbg.com/2012/06/19/fixing-sfs-sunshine-problems

Again I agree with a STRONG sunshine ... something we have NOT had; however just to have an agency for the illusion of sunshine without POWER is deceitful ....

It re-harms the victim and compounds the injury.

Jason Grant Garza here ... again after YEARS vindication ... at the 5/19/14 MINISTRY Hearing for case #14005 the city (Hipaa Expert) Gleghorn testified that I DID NOT have to sign a Hipaa release to get my own medical records. On May 2, 2012 (check out audio on MINSTRY website at 4hours 12 minute where my cases begin - see agenda) Gleghorn testifies to the MINISTRY that INDEED I MUST sign a Hipaa release to get my records and that she has checked with the CITY ATTORNEY.
NOW in 2014, when I point out to the MINISTRY that they had been lied to and deceived and NATURALLY I had been further HARMED by the DELAY and LAWBREAKING activity ,,, did they (MINSTRY) hold DPH or Gleghorn or the CITY ATTORNEY accountable or responsible??? Yes here in SUNSHINE ... as TRANSPARENT as possible no ACCOUNTABILITY. Yes, failing and now I am sure that they will move on to the next victim. Oh, sure I know EXPERTS never lie, ha,ha,ha ... http://myownprivateguantanamo.com/settle1.html tell it to someone who DOES NOT have a signed confession from the city. Keep DRINKING the KOOL-AID.
