over of san francisco by silicon valley is ridiculous there is global buses everywhere there is anywhere from 10 to 16 to 20 thousand tmcs it is a race to the bottom for those people to make a living the cab industry paid san francisco $30 million every year the tmcs give nothing to san francisco it is amazing to me that i and the city farthest the city fathers are allowing this to happen i'll say that the amount of people when the tmcs the first part when they're number one when their this is the most dangerous part of driving their uninsured many
5:05 pm
cases like you don't pay the insurance you can call any insurance company they don't insure the tmcs and it is incredible the mayor knew that was no insurance the mayor said they allowed this we're going to be people killed and injured in san francisco on the overflow of the drivers trying to make aing i believe the blood is on the hands of the mayor and the city father you have to control the amount of tmcs and cabs in the city this is insage i is an what's golden in san francisco. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon. my name is is marseille i've lived in san francisco for 31 years and i've been drying a taxi with yellow
5:06 pm

i can't tell you how aware i am of the audience. not only what i hear but their vibes, so strong. i have been doing this for a long time. i kind of make them feel what i want them to feel. there is nobody in that audience or anywhere that is not going to know that particular song by the fourth note. and that is our encore on tour. by the way. i am proud to play it we are from san francisco. we are going to play that piece no matter where we are.
