Re: “Twenty Restaurants to Consider When Eating 'Ethnic' in the East Bay

Only EBX and Luke Tsai could frame eating out into a race/class/colonization polemic. Perhaps just focus on the thing you want to promote because it earned it, and forget about the BS that is most media. I knew about most of the spots in this post -and some are quite well praised in the press... Grocery Cafe is not a secret and has not been discounted by reporters over a more posh eatery serving the same fare.

Re: “County Health Director: Oakland's Housing Crisis Is a Prescription for Sicker, Shorter Lives

There's not a single elected official in Oakland who has the slightest notion of what it's like not to be secure in one's home.

This lack of understanding and compassion is emblematic of a host of problems which Oakland's citizens have long been struggling with.

According to the US census between 2000 and 2010 Latinos were the fastest growing population in Oakland.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

Supporters of the current mayor, who represent big corporate development money are obviously trying to get the people who are more progressive out of the running, out of elected seats and away from appointed positions. Their pockets for funds are almost bottomless when compared to grassroots community. This is happening in District 5 too with the council and school board candidates. Oakland 's soul is being sold, but many voters in the hills , who are starry-eyed over this mayor, don't realize what is going on here and will vote our interests away this election .

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

I worked with Peggy Moore during the 2012 OFA campaign. I had a personal experience that caused me to be very suspicious of her moral compass. Everyone should be questioning Peggy Moore's ethics and intent. The corruption in Oakland is horrible and Peggy Moore will just make the problem worse.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

So claiming Lee and Thurmond endorsed Moore is just 'a hypothetical' according to the political consultants. Some might call it an obvious con job to link Moore to two local Black elected officials; most people would call it a lie. It certainly calls into question Ms Moore's ethics and intent. No candidate supported by the incompetent Mayor Schaff should be allowed anywhere near City Hall.

I took this poll last week and was never followed up with that the endorsements were false. Disappointed but not surprised.

This clearly shows that we should not vote for Peggy Moore!

I filled out the "poll" as well and never got a follow-up message.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

I guess the Mayor wants a rubber stamp (Moore) and not someone on the council that actually fights for tenants rights (Measure JJ) , environmental justice (No Coal Trains in Oakland) or a police Commision accountable to the citizens. Vote Kaplan

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

The bigger question here are the ethics of EMC. EMC generally does legitimate polling for groups or candidate interested in how voters perceive candidates and issues. My wife received this email poll, and it was clearly an attempt to advocate for Moore. The poll never disclosed who was behind it, but it was quite clear that it was put out to support Moore. Time for EMC to step up and provide full disclosure with their polls. Otherwise, any results they produce should be viewed with great skepticism.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

I participated in that poll! Last week. It didn't seem very "partial" to me at the time. It felt skewed toward Peggy Moore the more I think about it. No pun intended. I received no "follow-up" either.

Re: “Oakland Police Union Writes $1,400 Check to Unseat Councilmember Noel Gallo

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.

Re: “Oakland Police Union Writes $1,400 Check to Unseat Councilmember Noel Gallo

How about reaching Gonzalez and asking her position on the ballot measure?

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

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!

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

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.
