Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Too many excuses by too many people for too many years. Yes on Measure LL. Oakland deserves better. www.yesonll.com
OMGGGG I sure hope this happens. I miss Nellie's. Those oxtails and the dressing..muahh. Please keep us all updated. What a gift to start the holidays with.!!!!
Actually the charge to censure is being led by private citizens, many from McElhaney's own District.
Well bless the Lord. 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Crooked Desley Brooks is leading the charge to censure McElhhaney?? Really? Brooks is hypocrisy personified. OMG, it's impossible to make this stuff up.
@ Peter Stokes: "OPD officers told me they live outside Oakland for the welfare of their families. I was stunned." You shouldn't be. The killers of Judy Salamon cheerfully threatened witnesses with death. Some guys are really bad characters. You don't want your spouse and children to have an "accident" on an Oakland street. * * * I've talked to officers who have rotated through many assignments, served in beats all over the city, and certainly "understand Oakland for what it is."
The Night Light event for those in Oakland
Re the garbage contracts, "cool" is the new "rigged."
Re the police (also firefighters and to an unknown extent public works personnel), it's astonishing that the widely-covered abandonment of New Orleans by police especially in the Katrina aftermath hasn't been taken as a model for what will happen in Oakland in the event of a severe Hayward fault rupture (due any time now, note). Unamazingly, under such circumstances people will prioritize the safety of their own families.
State law, passed by the Legislature in the '70s under union pressure, prohibits cities from enforcing residency requirements for employees, but one would think a simple sense of self-preservation would be enough to motivate the majority of Californians living in major earthquake hazard zones to get that changed.
A shame we can't keep good spots for long
What a blessing it would be.
I'm doing the happy dance right now!
thank lord Jesus
I sure hope this happens. Yaaay!
We should all look at all the issues and everyone involved, not just what makes our like (me, myself and I) better off? It's time we act and vote like a country, together on the important things like Justice Reform. Because "No One Belongs In Jail for Marijuana"
Noel Gallo was the only one who voted against the garbage contract BTW... I think he's a pretty straight shooter.
Mayor Schaaf and council continue bankrupting Oakland for decades to come with crappy contracts to cronies. Libby signed Police contract with over a 30% increased cost to City (raises and bennies) over 5 years. Then Council signed fat garbage deal, and now a booming bond ballot (with money for Charters Schools, Developers and the OPD). Libby, the Education Mayor and her Charter School buddy's will have teachers working for fast food wages and on MediCal: while Oakland Police earn 100K a year with fat bennies and pensions.
Libby loves her lobbyists, she plans to ride her "public safety: mass incarceration" "education reform: privatize public education" and "Oakland Renaissance : real estate rip off" right to Sacramento where she can do even more harm. Libby luvs Oakland!
If I were going to vote for Trump, I wouldn't do so because of the militant believer Pence. Hemp has been a long hard road in the US, and we don't need to sabotage our attempts now.
