Re: “Oakland's Street-Repair Deficit is Deep. The Mayor Says a $600 Million Bond Needed to Address the Problem.

I oppose the City of Oakland’s $600 million ‘Bond Measure KK’ because the property tax that pays for it will be twice the stated cost of the bond. The bond is for $600 million but the property tax is $1,179,640,700 [approximately $1.2 billion]. [See Measure KK ‘TAX RATE STATEMENT’ ¶4] This doubling of the cost is due to the fact the bond omits the financing costs. Oakland’s presentation of Measure KK is deceptive because the only mention of the true property tax cost [$1,179,640,700] of the $600 million bond is buried on the last page of the measure hidden among many other numbers such as parcel property tax rates. Nowhere in Measure KK does Oakland state the finance cost of the bond, as law requires.
I oppose this $600 million ‘Bond Measure KK’ because Oakland is not capable of administering a contract wisely. The Alameda County Grand Jury found that Oakland totally mismanaged the recent $50 million garbage contract resulting in a 50% increase of our monthly garbage bill. [See 2015-2016 Grand Jury Report @ on p.39] Now Oakland wants $600 million of taxpayer money to dole out and manage in contracts. Oakland has proven that it cannot manage money wisely and should not be trusted with large budget until it has proven ability to manage small budgets.
I oppose this $600 million ‘Bond Measure KK’ because the taxpayers were not consulted either as to the importance of the projects or the costs of them. The Bond Measure and the supporting documents refer to budget items such as ‘Streets and Roads Projects, in the amount of $350 million’ for repaving repairs. Oakland refuses to release documents that show the existing repaving budget, the existing funds for the repaving or the why more funds are needed.
Congress Representative Barbara Lee has done a fantastic job of bringing home Federal funds to repave Oakland streets. City Administration Office has made no attempt to inform the property owners why Oakland needs more money for paving than the Federal funds and the Oakland ongoing paving budget already provides. Oakland has failed to explain the $350 million shortfall in the paving budget. The Bond documents merely states the problem without informing the taxpayers the existing resources that solve the problem.
Oakland’s infrastructure improvements need to be done incrementally. The taxpayer must evaluate the value received before additional tax money is supplied. All new property taxes should be spent on Oakland’s infrastructure; not 50% given to Wall Street financiers.
Vote ‘NO” on Oakland’s waste of our tax dollars! Vote ‘NO’ on Measure KK!

Re: “Oakland Struggles to Hold Banks Accountable

Once again council has failed in its' fiduciary responsibilities to Oakland's residents. Why isn't our Ethic Commission investigating this obvious failure to perform there sworn duties?

Its' a good that there are a lot of engaged, well wishing Oaklanders pushing our city sure ain't the council.
