Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Kent Lewandowski, It's a good question. According to the feasibility study, an additional convention center in Oakland wouldn't bring enough revenue; almost all convention centers in the country operate at a loss, the study says. The report also says the Kaiser fails to meet true convention center criteria, since it doesn't have enough "breakout rooms" and so on.
I'm unclear why convention use is ruled out? With tech companies coming to town, they want and need space to host user conventions. Currently I believe the only space in Oakland is the Marriott Convention center.
I remember as a child and young adult attending Oakland Symphony concerts in the Calvin Simmons Theater. The acoustics and sight lines are the finest in the Bay Area. I hope other Oakland Council members will support Rebecca Kaplan and that this wonderful venue can be brought back to life.
Useful suggestions ! Just to add my thoughts , if your business is searching for a Bankruptcy B6I , my friend used a fillable document here http://pdf.ac/6QK200.
Kevin Mulvey, Pleasanton police were present at the Oakland protest, per a mutual aid agreement, and one of their vehicles was damaged.
History repeats repeats repeats-- #1 When Occupy was shoved off the Plaza 5 years ago, a huge, huge crowd of everbody showed up to protest and march back there. Cops from 13 jurisdictions had been called to stop this community--all kind of folks--from getting there. Pleasanton then too. Then, #2 When we got to 14th and Broadway it was fenced and lined with cops in SWAT gear 20 deep. A mumble on the PA, teargas shot in every direction simultaneously. Parents with strollers and toddlers and dogs were a few feet away. Many of us ran to gather them up and pull them away--many of the people wanting to support Occupy were terrified, confused. And many were sick. Children included.
Why are you showing a busted up Pleasanton cop car with a story about Oakland? Were Oakland cop cars vandalized?
