Emcees

Gala 2017 Emcee: Malia Cohen

Malia Cohen

Supervisor Malia Cohen serves as Chair of the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee, which oversees appropriation ordinances, and measures concerning bond issues, taxes, fees and other revenue measures, redevelopment, and real estate. She also serves as the President of the San Francisco Employee Retirement System (SFERS), which manages a $20 billion fund. She is a member of the San Francisco Transportation Authority, which oversees a half-cent sales tax for transportation investments in the County, which generates over $100 million annually.

Since being elected Supervisor for San Francisco’s tenth district in 2010, Supervisor Cohen has prioritized developing policies and legislation that keeps the residents of San Francisco’s Southeastern neighborhoods working, healthy and safe.

Consistent with these principals Supervisor Cohen authored the Pregnancy Information Disclosure and Protection Ordinance, prohibiting limited services pregnancy centers from making false or misleading statements about their services. After passage, this measure was challenged in court and upheld in its entirety.

Supervisor Cohen was the lead author and proponent of the sugar sweetened beverage tax, which is expected to generate over $14 million annually to fund public health and physical education programs in San Francisco. The measure passed 62 percent and has paved the way for the sugary sweetened beverage tax movement across the country.

In 2014, Supervisor Cohen authored the Fair Chance Ordinance, which regulates the use of commercial background checks by employers and affordable housing providers. The Ordinance removes any inquiry into a conviction history on a job or housing application and delay any background check until the employer or housing provider has determined that the individual’s qualifications meet the requirements for the position or the housing unit. The legislation will remove unnecessary barriers to employment and housing for qualified, skilled individuals seeking jobs and stable homes and will promote public safety by reducing obstacles to stabilizing factors for the nearly 7 million adult Californians with a conviction record.

Most recently, Supervisor Cohen championed the efforts on the Neighborhood Preference legislation, which prioritizes 40 percent of all affordable housing in new development projects for those who live in the existing neighborhoods.


Gala 2017 Emcee: Fiona Ma

Fiona Ma

Board Member Fiona Ma, CPA represents 23 counties and nearly ten million Californians in her Board of Equalization District. Ms. Ma was previously elected to represent the 12th Assembly District from December 2006 to November 2012 and served as the first Asian-American woman Assembly Speaker pro Tempore in California history.

Throughout her service as an elected official, she has been an outspoken advocate for California’s women. In her time in the Assembly and Board of Supervisors, she championed a number of proposals to crack down on human trafficking, reform unjust sentencing laws that kept domestic abuse survivors from presenting expert testimony in criminal trials, and to provide support and resources for victims of domestic violence.

Ms. Ma has been committed to public service ever since she was a small business owner and was elected to serve as President of the Asian Business Association in San Francisco, where she quickly emerged as a leading voice for San Francisco’s small business community. She was an elected delegate to the White House Conference on Small Business under President Bill Clinton, which produced a report to Congress on the 60 top policy recommendations to help small businesses grow and prosper in the 21st century. She was later appointed to the Assessment Appeals Board, and joined the staff of former Senator John Burton as a constituent advocate.

She is a card carrying member of SAG-AFTRA, the labor union representing theater, television, radio and film actors, having appeared in a number of productions filmed in San Francisco, and she was appointed to serve on the California Film Commission in 2016. Additionally, Ms. Ma serves as Treasurer of California Women Lead, the only statewide, nonpartisan women’s organization that is committed to providing women the training and support they need to be successful in the political arena.

Comedian

Gala 2017 Comedian: Joey Guila

Joey Guila

If laughter is medicine, comedian Joey Guila has your prescription. This San Francisco native’s biggest joy is to bring happiness to any event. He is a complete entertainer on stage and takes you through a journey of Old School and New School, his multicultural style of comedy hits home for all audiences.

Joey has done voice overs for the Nutshack Cartoon and has been featured on VH1, G4 Tech TV, Showtime (Pacific Rim Comedy with Edwin San Juan) and on HBO with P Diddy’s comedy special. He was recently coast to coast on the Verizon APAHM Tour and the Headliner on The Filipino Kingz Tour.

In 2003 Joey won the regional “Kings Of Comedy” competition ran by Latham Entertainment who is the founder of “The Original Kings Of Comedy” which include, Bernie Mac, Cedric The Entertainer, D.L. Hughley and Steve Harvey. Joey was invited to perform with Latham Entertainment at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and the Universal Amphitheater in Hollywood.

Joey has hosted two T.V. Shows on Myx TV called “That’s My Jam” and “Myx Rated” which recently won a Telly Award. His past guests have been Justin Bieber, PitBull, Boyz II Men, Naughty By Nature, Jason Derulo and Amerie. He has also opened for Al B. Sure, Black Eyed Peas, The Jabbawockeez and Bruno Mars.

When Joey is not on tour he enjoys being at home drinking coffee while wearing thin dress socks. His biggest mission is to bring healing laughter because watching standup comedy was one of his major cures when he had cancer. Joey has overcome many obstacles and now says he wants to be the first Asian on Cribs to have a chandelier in his mobile home. Joey recently filmed an hour special in Los Angeles titled “The Ring Leader”.
