San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors is weighing Supervisor David Campos’ proposal for a luxury housing moratorium today, and residents from around the city are there to witness and comment on the process. City Hall is full of drama today and continues into tonight:

At 11:45, the Clerk calls the roll and the measure for a moratorium on Mission housing fails with a 7 to 4 vote in favor of the moratorium because nine votes were needed to pass the measure.
Jane Kim: Aye
Eric Mar: Aye
Katy Tang: No
Scott Wiener: No
Norman Yee: Aye
John Avalos: Aye
London Breed Aye
David Campos: Aye
Julie Christensen: No
Malia Cohen: Aye
Mark Farrell:l No

11:38 p.m. Campos argues that with a 45-day pause there is no impact and that the city’s economist will answer the questions about an impact if the board wants to extend the moratorium for a longer period.

11:36 p.m. The crowd is losing patience with Supervisor Malia Cohen’s questions.

11:30 p.m.Go to streaming for the full effect of all of this.

11:19 p.m. A partial vote and then the vote rescinded for more discussion and questions.

11:09 p.m. Campos says that he has never seen happen what happened today. “It’s these 13 sites, that’s why these folks came out,” says Campos calling for his fellow supervisors to vote in favor of the moratorium.

11:07 p.m. It’s over and Supervisor Campos asks his aide to put up a map of the 13 sites in the Mission that could be purchased for affordable housing.

It’s not over. A gentleman who says that he just ran over from Berkeley tells the board he stands with this group.

At 11:04 p.m. public comment is over and Hernandez goes on, “Do the right thing.” The crowd erupts in cheers and clapping.

Roberto Hernandez from Our Mission No Eviction ends the public comment by reminding the Supervisors of the Mayor’s failure to recognize a state of emergency in San Francisco housing.

Curry-like daughter:

Next up a guy with a not half-bad voice signing, “take those monsters away, all night long, all night long.” 10:51 p.m.
