Re: “Don't Be Afraid of Oakland

Wife and I bought a house in w.Oakland a few years back. I could do without the stench of the waste treatment plant (only smell it on certain days) and Alliance recycling, whom exploit homeless people that disrespect our neighborhood. Other than that Oakland is much better than SF to live in. As long as you stay the hell away from large parts of e.Oakland...

Re: “Don't Be Afraid of Oakland

After my first year (when they kick you out of the dorms) I moved into Oakland because I couldn't afford anything in Berkeley. It's 10 years later now; I've just bought my first house in the Mills College area. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.

No Oakland is terrible! It's nothing but pimps and junkies! Go to school and then head back to wherever you're from, QUICK!
Okay.... I think they're gone.

Re: “Don't Be Afraid of Oakland

Locals call it The Town? In three-plus decades of living here among quite diverse neighbors I have never heard the expression. Must be some other demographic of locals.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

I agree with your point in “UC Berkeley Student Guide: ‘Liberal’ Doesn’t Always Mean Liberal.” Your article, which described Mayor Tom Bates as a “progressive” and Jesse Arreguin as an opponent of change, is a perfect example.

I recently attended several Berkeley City Council meetings to get a sense of the quality of city government after having been away from Berkeley for decades. In that time I’ve seen the ways many city officials in different parts of the country respond to the citizens who come before them. To my dismay, in comparison to them, Mayor Bates is by far the most openly contemptuous and rude. At one meeting, for example, despite the many empty seats available in the chamber, he would not allow entry to a large number of West Berkeley residents who wanted to express their opposition to his plans for that neighborhood. Thanks to councilmember Jesse Arreguin, the police outside the chamber let the people in. The meeting then proceeded in a civil and democratic manner despite the mayor’s obvious displeasure.

Berkeley students and members of the public don’t need to take your word, or for that matter mine, for what kind of politician Mayor Bates is. They can make up their own minds by watching him in action on the archived videos of past city council meetings as well as live on Cable C-TV – Channel 33, when council meetings resume on Tuesday evenings starting September 11th. If they do so, I am confident they will see that when someone is in power too long, he acts as if he believes “l’état c’est moi.” It’s time for a change. Let's hope it comes in November.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

lauo wolf,

There is no doubt that the Great Recession delivered a devastating blow to Berkeley retailers -- just as it did to small businesses across the nation. But the problem in Berkeley of many small retailers being unable to survive over the long-term predates the recession by many years.

I'm dating myself here, but I first moved to Berkeley in 1979, and between then and 1995 (I moved to Oakland in 1989), I worked in a half-dozen retail establishments in the city, many of which were very well known at the time. All of those businesses subsequently shuttered, and five out of six closed long before the Great Recession began.

Lest you think that I'm some sort of bad luck charm, all those businesses were either replaced by one of more new businesses that also then went belly up or they occupied storefronts that remain vacant to this day. I still know the owners of those businesses, and each say that they just couldn't make it because there just were not enough shoppers in their commercial districts, and thus not enough customers.

The key to any vibrant city is people -- the more people there are, the easier it is for stores, restaurants, and bars to thrive. But many of Berkeley's commercial areas are still a long way from being vibrant -- just ask the business owners in downtown, on Telegraph, or Solano Avenue.

Yes, let's invite more students in to inflate rent and push out community residents.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

Well, gee:
"Understanding the impact that NIMBYs have on the city will also give you insight as to why downtown Berkeley, Telegraph Avenue, and other shopping districts are pocked with empty storefronts and vacant lots. There simply aren't enough people living here to make more stores, restaurants, and bars financially viable."

Let me see.
The closed storefronts are there because there isn't enough housing to support them.
Does that take into account the many empty apartments in the new construction?
And, how does that explain that these places once contained businesses, for years, supported by the local population?
Maybe those empty storefronts have to do with the economy and not any need for further speculative development.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

You all assume to much. I've lived in Berkeley longer than the times Josh and others have researched. The perspective between living that long and researching 20 miserly years is too enormous to describe here. And you'd have to pay me to do it. Cutting to the chase, Preservationists and Progressives both tend to exaggerate to the point they makes themselves archetypes, where over labeling and creating complex issues make it pointless to try for a comprise. The fact is everyone votes only their interests. Let's get this straight, reasonable persons do not pass votes for the other side. Unfortunately that leaves puffing personal interest which tend to burn the truth and that is an unfortunate casualty. Please! Don't get philosophical with the truth. To me, that's too much like arguing wrong way to a stop sign. Dylan once said it well, "You want to truth? You can't handle the truth." Of course it begs the question. What is the truth? It's simple. Berkeley is a Big Company Town where to be labelled correctly, 1) Progressive means to expand the university's interests and; 2)) to be a Preservationist means it is not happening if it costs me my interests. The result to my interests, which is neither side, is a dire need for the kind of truth to make an informed decision. The person in the middle (Moi) is foundering for who and what to vote for because picking a Preservationist over a Progressive is like choosing a mephitis over a skunk for a pet. Once you get passed the smell, it's a vote.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal

Gee, is it possible that Mr. Gammon is strongly in favor of Tom Bates' re-election? This article, putatively about Berkeley politics and this year's elections, begins with kudos for Bates and places Bates' photo at the top: it looks like a campaign ad.

Bias is real in so-called reporters/journalists, I get that. It happens.

What is much harder for me to choke down is Gammon's unfounded and repeaetdly assertion that Bates is progressive. It is not progressive to be in thrall to real estate developers, which Bates clearly is. The Daily Planet has been publishing a very detailed, fact-based -- using quotes and facts, you know, old fashioned journalism -- to demonstrate that Tom Bates is far, far, far from progressive. Bates is a cunning, calculating political animal who sees politics as all about showing off Tom Bates, buying power and influence for Tom Bates. There are quotes that would chill any liberal's soul, Tom Bates quotes, in which Bates makes it clear that playing games for power matters more to him than the wellbeing of this city.

Gammon's article reads like he is a shill for not only Bates but for the push to add more housing to downtown Berkeley. At least Gammon does not pretend this housing is really just for student housing: Bates tends to sell his kow-towing to real estate developers as bringing families and other taxpayers to downtown Berkeley.Students are temporary, they come and go. We should not transform the character of our downtown to accomodate students.

Bates can be quoted making it clear that he wants to transform downtown so his name will be indelibly imprinted on Berkeley history. It's all about Bates ego. That is not liberal or progressive.

If, as Gammon irrationally asserts, Bates is one of the most progressive mayors, the whole country is in trouble. Bates is no not liberal. Bates is all about Bates and power.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal


These are some of the votes and actions that I was referring to when I wrote that NIMBYs have been able to count on your vote:………

Nonetheless, your support for Measure R and the most recent downtown area plan are noteworthy.

Re: “"Liberal" Doesn't Always Mean Liberal


I assumed (as many voters might also do) that you were involved in the 1986 boundary drawing effort because of your signature on the official opposition to Measure R that is to appear in voter ballot pamphlets.

The argument that you co-signed states that "I and my team drew the district lines" in 1986. The argument does not clarify that you actually were not on that team and were not part of the effort.

Moreover, the argument that you co-signed is misleading in several other ways. It implies that current law does not allow the council to adjust the 1986 boundary lines, when current law does allow that to happen.

Measure R just allows the council to disregard those gerrymandered 1986 boundary lines.

The argument you signed also wrongly contends that Measure R would allow the council to change boundary lines without "input" from voters. That's untrue. The council is prohibited by both state law and local law from making such decisions without allowing the public to comment on them.
