Re: “Landlord Being Sued for Allegedly Pushing Out SRO Tenants

Ahasuerus Christian, what makes you so certain I'm lying? Just curious. We posted notices in English AND Chinese that we would be remodeling common areas, and when our general contractor suggested all kitchens had to be done at the same time, we refused, instead insisting that they completely remodel one kitchen, and only start on the 2nd kitchen once the first one had been completed and put back in service. I get it, "bad landlord" articles are great click-bait, and a great way to further one's career in some cases. Consider that there are honest business people, unless and until there is actually evidence against them. In this case, there is no evidence because we have no desire to ever constructively evict anyone, and 100% respect Just Cause and all other laws. Does anyone else find it odd that we took a Death-trap building with exactly zero smoke detectors and zero carbon monoxide detectors and with raw sewage leaking into the basement (literally) and cured all those items, plus the leaky roof, plus are painting it, and I've said that to every reporter that has contacted me, but none have printed it? I continue to respond to all questions and inquiries and have offered to meet with the city or anyone else with a stake in the situation. They haven't--maybe because they're mistaken and embarrassed, maybe they're too busy writing their next piece of inaccurate click-bait. Oh well. We'll just keep improving Oakland, respecting tenants, and taking punishment while doing it. No love lost Oakland.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

Can't someone look for the mailer ID from the mailing barcode to determine who the sender is? who is MID 901486?

Re: “After Fifty Years, Nellie's Soulfood Restaurant Says Goodbye

Great food, truly awful, terrible, no good, very bad service. It was time for them to move on - their hearts weren't in it anymore.

Re: “California Set for Historic Vote on Cannabis Legalization

Everyone country wide should chip in a few bucks to AUMA. I did. It's easy and quick. You don't even need to punch in a credit card number, just use PayPal. Visit their website. I'm not affiliated with the group and I don't even live in California.

Re: “California Set for Historic Vote on Cannabis Legalization

"They have the money and we have the facts" states the anti legalization coalition. They forgot to add "they have the will of the people in a free democracy".

Re: “Mid-Week Menu: A Coffee Box, a Sicilian Spinoff, and ‘Broffee’

"“Craft coffee drinks” — whatever that means" Luke, you might want to sit down, because this bit of truth I'm about to tell you is clearly going to rock your world: Luke, you're a food critic.

Re: “Town Business: Housing ‘State of Emergency’

I'm a victim of this bubble, pushing me out of Oakland. If I hadn't fallen in love, it would have pushed me completely out of the bay area.

Fuck the rich who have no conscious and push out so many. And fuck the city council. Wholey ineffective with no respect for their constituents. Oakland is now just a lighter version of San Francisco. Just not much lighter.

Re: “Black Oakland Police Officers Slam Schaaf over OPD Texting, Human Trafficking Scandals

Why does the Mayor continue to spend and give away tax payers money like bottled water at a family bbq? Example, paying a private investigator to find out what city employees are talking, really?
She didn't, nor a guy that the city was paying $330.000 a year in salary apply for a $2 million grant that would help get many youth off the streets, including hanging out in Dt Oakland with nothing to do but shot and kill innocent people, unacceptable!!😠

Re: “New Oakland-Made Saurkraut Takes Shots at Uber, Mayor

Ahh Luke. We send you so many positive press releases about our youth programs, our work to distribute food grown at Castlemont High School, our Double EBT work and you just love to write about controversial things. Did you highlight our kraut that pays for fruit trees to planted in Southern Madagascar by a sister collective? Or that the products contain produce grown by youth and small farmers of color? How about posting a link to our sites to buy our youth products to help us employee youth. Nope, how sad :(

Re: “Daily Planet Stung By Alleged Fraud

Mr. Norgren, the wanted tax fraud scoundrel, has been arrested by the US Attorneys office in the PI and has been extradited to the US. He now awaits a court hearing in Federal Court under Judge Ryo on July 5, 2016 in Oakland, CA . For more information contact Special Agent Andres Gonzales at the IRS. Finally he's been nabbed and awaits justice.

Re: “Major Pot Company Hit With Six Counts of Securities Fraud

@fuvkyou, Also illegal because without proper accounting they could be diluting value out of the company for themselves and essentially stealing from investors.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

Unless they have removed the information since Monday's City Council action, information about who is behind the deceptive mailer and the group that calls itself Jobs4Oakland may still be found in a recent press release at… and

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

I think they may be in violation of the City's lobbyist ordinance. If not we need to revise it, this large of a mailer represents significant money. We should know who funded it.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

I got this mailer too, and I find this summary of its inaccuracies, omissions, and outright lies - as well as the apparently phantom nature of "Jobs 4 Oakland" - to be quite newsworthy. Please continue reporting it.
