She was asked at the Democratic Forum Thursday and she kind've seemed to support it but now that I think about it, did not actually say that. Also said she wasn't supporting Measure JJ, renters' protections.
Great idea! I would like to know her position, as well.
How about reaching Gonzalez and asking her position on the ballot measure?
Monies going into the "general" fund and who is going to oversee this? Just as the monies from "parking tickets go into its OWN fund. Transparency show us the records!
Ryan Oakland is not broke and Vegas certainly is not a better city for the Raiders.The Oakland East Bay is a far wealthier region that Las Vegas. I strongly encourage you to get off of the strip and look around. The schools rank second to lowest in the nation and twenty-five percent of the homes are underwater. I do not want to bore you with further economic comparisons between the the two region but just be aware that In reality Vegas is an isolated mono economy solely dependent upon the Casino industry while the Oakland East Bay is a dynamic diversified economy that is doing just fine.
LOL the reason why it sounds like he "hates other cities that want the Raiders" is because the LV proposed site is in direct protest of the FAA. #Oakland4Ever
The shrewd and late Al Davis came back to Oakland for a reason. Although football passed him by, he had the presence of mind to realize the extreme value of the bay area market. It would be foolish for his very unstable son to flirt with moving the franchise. So far he has dealt with Oakland very disrespectfully, Sit down and be still Mark. Oakland will get this done.
Zienie is a joke he only spits out misinformation other bloggers have confronted him about what he is saying and he shows no proof and spits out hatred for any other cities that want the Raiders watch all of his vids on vegas you will see the misinformation
Raider did not file trademarks for San Antonio or Carson Jody Payton... Lane Blue filed for the trademark San Antonio Raiders, which cornered Mark Davis to change the Raiders name or it would force Mark to pay a hefty fee to buy Blues Patent Trademark... Carson Raiders never happened... Los Angeles Raiders I believe, still belongs to the Raiders from when they patent it back in early 80's
When the government disturbs prices and wages, a black market is created, because humans are always financially motivated. Renters sell the opportunity to live in their rent-controlled apartments. Workers sell employment opportunities. Physicians sell disability certifications. I'm not arguing that the disturbance of prices and wages is bad policy. I'm arguing only that these effects should be considered, not ignored.
The Raiders will stay in Oakland bc they will get the new stadium they want. Davis is just using the move to las vegas to scare the city of Oakland to agree to the new stadium! Vegas is a tourist city keyword tourist. vegas will never have a pro football team they just got a hockey team i give that 5 years tops before that folds and proves to all major sports leagues that vegas is just a tourist city!
The company is paying absolutely NO price for this crime!!! They are putting all of the blame and fines on the employees of the company who were caught on camera!!! The management of this branch and the lack of proper training and safety practices are to blame!
Bill Drawdy- Vegas is a much better city than in many ways for the Raiders. Oakland is a broke city right now and that is why they are having so many stadium issues, while Vegas is doing much better and major league franchises in all sports are dying to get into the Vegas market because there are over 2.2 million people in the greater Las Vegas area. We know what Oakland can bring to the table, NOTHING. While Las Vegas is an untapped market with endless possibility. Also, the stadium in Vegas will be used for UNLV Football, and a possible MLS expansion franchise.
Anyone who really believes the Raiders are moving to LV are only fooling themselves. The Raiders also filed a trademark for San Antonio and Carson.....how'd that work out? Lol
"..this came out today,...you dont file trademarks for nothing!...its all a process already rolling!....Las Vegas Raiders coming soon!
and the house or cards came tumbling
down, and p.t. barnum smiled
What's happening to Oakland's Chinatown? I was there about 2 months ago and it looked shabby, rundown and on its way to oblivion....Why?
"Renderings" means pretty pictures designed to fool people into thinking there's a real plan.
When lose or tie Raider till I die! It doesn't matter where they go, they can go to Pluto, and I'm still a diehard Raider fan!
"But don't count Oakland out just yet."
As usual, the rhetoric assumes that the city needs to play the game as defined by the Raiders. Reality is the other way around. If the Raiders leave, the city is fine. Oakland doesn't need to negotiate, and we don't need to offer any public money to support the team. Mark Davis is like a tenant who doesn't pay rent and then threatens to move out. The city doesn't net anything from the team being here, but for some reason we always talk about ponying up big bucks to keep them from leaving.
McKibben says Oakland might not materialize. He means that an Oakland subsidy might not materialize. That's as it should be.
