This photograph was taken after
Edwin Mah Lee was sworn in -
he promised us citizens much - did nothing at all -
I represent the First People of San Francisco -
in all the deliberations - not a word about the
Muwekma Ohlone - well you know what happens - Karma -
I predicted someone would fall on his face - and he did.
When Edwin Mah Lee - was sworn in as the 43rd Mayor of San Francisco.
Edwin Mah Lee - ushered in an era of chronic corruption - disgraced the good name of San Francisco - where there was some semblance there is none - today. Corruption has reached - saturation point.
We know those that purport to represent us at City Hall - today - be it the heads of Departments - the key head at City Hall - did not have the " best " interests of the citizens of San Francisco. Money was his god.
In recent times our Budget has grown to over $10 Billion - our citizens were compromised - Quality of Life issues were compromised.
Congestion on our streets, our elders thrown to the wind, very high rents and over 50, 000 families have left San Francisco - in the last 10 years.
Our Neighborhoods make San Francisco - Edwin Mah Lee and his failed policies - encouraged " GENTRIFICATIO " - destroyed the San Francisco - we knew.
This young man represent thousands of
our youth and young adults in San Francisco.
The remains of Edwin M. Lee will lie in State - at City Hall today December 15, 2017 until Sunday, December 17, 2017.
All sorts of people - from all walks of life will say things.
Few will acknowledge - the trials and tribulations of those that needed help - died in tents - on our filthy streets - facing the inclement weather.
Many advocates and more non-profits - were targeted by high rents - leaving us to fend for ourselves.
While City Department heads - make over $300, 000 plus benefits - and the Edwin Mah Lee - made over $400, 000 plus - and acquired millions in off shore accounts - time will tell.
These steps inside City Hall -
lead to the many rooms - where the wheeling and dealing
goes on - foremost among the crooks the
two House Negros Malia Cohen and London Breed.
London Breed is now anointed the Acting Mayor -
she brags " she is uniquely qualified to lead "
well, that is her subjective opinion -
she is brash, ignorant, arrogant, not educated on issues -
she projects her experience in the " hood " and brags -
that her Public Housing sordid experience will
help her in good stead - well, time will tell.
The woman above used to be on the SF Redevelopment Agency - now defunct - she not once defend our children who were harmed by the " rogue developer " - Lennar Urban.
London Breed - is a know " sellout " - a House Negro - not to be trusted.
London Breed was on the SF Fire Department Commission - and when at the Board of Supervisor - more as the President of the Board - chose to target the Fire Chief Hayes White - blaming the ambulances - who got stuck in traffic - failing to respond on time - when called.
The congestion was caused by Edwin Mah Lee and his failed policies - not the Fire Chief who did her best - and still continues to represent the citizens of San Francisco - well.
We often protested at City Hall -
here are the steps - and below more people -
all gathered to force the representatives to listen -
to our pleas on Quality of Life - issues.
London Breed is brash and truly does not have the ability to " discern ".
She lives with a white man - her significant other according to some - others say a room mate of sorts. Even a heifer sometimes need some attention.
I have nothing against living with a white man - but in this case - with the Black population - less than 2% - this fact is significant - let us see - when the White Elephant appears - and how the Black rhino - fits in the scenario of sorts.
London Breed is corrupt - met an Federal of Bureau Investigation (FBI) with Malia Cohen - a fact that reveals - how vulnerable London Breed is - surely prone to lying, taking bribes, breaking the law - the " hood" has followed her deeply to City Hall and beyond.
Again and again we met at City Hall -
went inside City Hall - and shut down City Hall -
every time we protested in the chambers at City Hall -
the cowardly London Breed - fled.
is " uniquely " poised NOT to represent decent
San Franciscans - she could have helped an elderly
African American who was over 100 years old -
who was evicted from her home - where she lived for decades
but " with intent " - and chose - to ignore Mrs Canada's pleas - leading to her death - Time will tell.
London Breed will be in office - soon to be anointed to serve until June, 2018.
That is if she get 6 votes from the other SF Board of Supervisors - 11 of them in toto - seat on the SF Board of Supervisors.
Then in June, 2018 the real elections will be held - and the many mistakes London Breed who who brashly states again and again that she is uniquely qualified - but in reality is for sure " uniquely not qualified ".
Her mistakes and brashness - will knock her out of any race for Mayor - all this will be revealed by the June, 2018 Mayoral election.
We remember how Katy Tang was knocked-out - when the elections were taking place for SF Board President - a mistake that got Katy Tang out - and London Breed in.
Katy Tang remembers well she was anointed by Edwin Mah Lee - but she forget NOT to shred documents - that had to be archived.
Well, London Breed got the seat of President of the Board - because of this fact - that many have conveniently - forgotten.
It is important to remember - that morals, ethics, standards - count - and believe you me - London Breed has none of this - she is a " thug " from the hood - the worst one from the Fillmore.
The Independents have time to organize and get an Independent candidate to run for Mayor - come June, 2018.
Anyone independent investigator can gather tons of goods on London Breed.
London Breed - she is a chronic liar, very corrupt, told her mentor Willie L. Brown Jr. to " go *uck off " - is ignorant, feisty, has all the traits that come embossed by the hood - her DNA .
It is a know fact that the " hood " - where crime and survival of the fittest still - reigns supreme - leave lasting scars - and London Breed still lives with many - her family members still incarcerated - that she feels deeply for - and affects her more - in her work - daily.
These demons haunt her daily - and reflect in her sordid behavior. Time will tell.
Recently we had the murder of two Black men - Emeere Jackson and that of Keita " Iggy " O'Neil - there were others too - but these two made headlines.
Not a whimper from Edwin Mah Lee and less from London Breed.
Yes, she is uniquely qualified - NOT - to take us to a better - place.
London Breed is an anathema.
For the last 40 years - I have been on the Front lines - and have seen - corrupt, spineless, lacking spirituality, their heart NOT in the right place.
Egoistical maniacs, not educated on issues - political whores and pimps - the likes of Landon Breed - trying to hoodwink us in broad daylight.
That simply will not work this time around.
My condolences to Anita Lee -
her two daughters Tania and Brianna Lee -
you know you father and I know your father -
if I reveal some - it is not to hurt anyone -
but to speak to the Truth -
This photograph gives us a sense -
how close Anita Lee was to her husband -
a recent photograph.
how close Anita Lee was to her husband -
a recent photograph.
San Franciscans the ones that really matter - have been pushed out by folks like London Breed - with advice given by corrupt folks who have jumped ship - Olson Lee.
I knew Edwin Mah Lee for a long time - over 35 years - once played ping-pong with him - in public.
Right on 5th and Market - at the request of Mohamed Nuru.
I met him in my office - and I met him in his office - revealed to him what I felt and stood for.
Few have had personal interactions as I have with Edwin Mah Lee.
The same as I have with the City's Controller Ben Rosenfield, the City Administrator Naomi Kelly, the Director of Public Works Mohamed Nuru, the Chief of Police William Scott and the 11 Chiefs before him, the General Manager of the SF Public Utilities Commission - in short women and men that matter.
I know who is corrupt and who is not corrupt.
You know this when those most in need - must be helped - and we know who steps up and helps them.
I will NOT go to City Hall to pay my respects to Edwin Mah Lee - I will NOT go - to remind myself of the smell of Sulphur.
I spoke the Truth - when Edwin Mah Lee was alive.
I will now that he is dead and gone - with the BLOOD of the many who died on the streets of San Francisco - because of his failed policies.
Francisco Da Costa - Edwin Mah Lee -
Mitch Salazar - from left to right -
he visited my office and those present
know what I said to Edwin Mah Lee to this face.
When he met me at my office at 5 Thomas Mellon Circle - in front of everyone I said " Mr Mayor if you help me serve the community I will respect you ". " If not that is on you " .
Edwin Mah Lee - failed to serve the community.
Edwin Mah Lee failed to serve the community - more our infants, youth, young adults, the seniors who slept on the streets of San Francisco and died.
The mentally and physically challenged - it hurts me that this man lived and enjoyed himself - acting like a hog.
Failed the decent - hard working, tax paying - San Franciscan.
Edwin Mah Lee -
1952 - 2017
So Mayor this is my farewell to you
in life you did not leave a legacy
the many poor, indigent , need not have to die
on the Streets of San Francisco.
My condolences to your decent wife - Anita Lee
to your daughters Tania and Brianna Lee -
it is sad - that you chose to serve the greedy
the many Big Developers - who bled all San Franciscans
in ten years - over 50, 000 had to flee
leaving San Francisco - never again to be seen.
Your body lies below the Rotunda
those that say they know you will pass by you
some know you in person - and more do not know you.
You knew well - in life - and even now
My sincere interactions with you
you did not meet my standards - you failed the people.
My philosophy - we are on the Earth
for two seconds
we have no option - but to do good.
Frail as human beings - as we are - we try
you promised us the world - building 30, 000 homes
on land prone to liquefaction and flooding -
you failed us all - so many cry.
Farewell - this is my ode to you
not something that I do often do
I have tried to change your ways
serve our citizens in the land of the Ohlone
they deserve the best - I represent them.
I will hear - the remarks - that many make
as I said - few know you - as some of us who dealt
with your failed polices - your love for money -
never failing to ask more - to fill your sordid coffers -
farewell - you could not take your wealth -
more, tainted money - in off shore accounts.
Each time I went to City Hall -
attending the many meetings - that you followed
on the SFGOV TV - you know what I said to your face -
you I said " are a disgrace to the human race "
I kept is real - I hope God has mercy on your soul -
Rest In Peace.
Francisco Da Costa
