Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
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.
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.
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 .
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.
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 look forward to joining you and participating in this service
