Re: “Vote With Us! The East Bay Express' Endorsements for Election Day 2016.

I would like to thank the Eastbay Express for bringing AC Transit issues to the forefront. As a retired bus driver running for the board of directors with 23 years of
experience I've seen AC Transit at it best and it's worse now than ever before, so for many reasons you've already stated I'm running. Also I will not support buying a house, AC Transit is not in the real estate business. Thank you to those who have supported me in the past and
read this paper!!! Dollene C. Jones

Re: “Expert: You Don't Have to Be a State Resident to Get Medical Marijuana In California Right Now

Not only do I have a doctors recommendation with an out of state ID, but am now a business owner for the legal and taxable sale of medical marijuana in the state of California and legally provide patients with mmj.
It's so funny, yet sad (therein lies the tragedy) to go into a dispensary and be turned away because of my out of state ID only to turn around set up an appt with the owner to become a VENDOR for them...
The irony is so thick I couldn't even vape it

Re: “How to Happy Hour Like a Tech Bro on an 'I Only Live in Oakland Because My Apartment is Rent Controlled' Budget

I think we could all learn to enjoy earning money like a "tech bro"....just saying....and the title seems like a horrible attempt at being "tongue in cheek" if in fact that was the intention of the author. Otherwise the title just makes that writer sound like a class bigot who is envious long time residents who signed leases before she did...I'm not sure which it is...

Re: “How to Happy Hour Like a Tech Bro on an 'I Only Live in Oakland Because My Apartment is Rent Controlled' Budget

While I understand the title was meant to be a joke. It almost twists the knife in the back of all the longtime residents who have been here for decades/generations. Working as a community ally in Oakland is tireless work. With the rapid influx of newcomers...its extremely difficult to try to keep, promote, and educate in a community based fashion, who the residents are, and how to preserve what this city represents historically.

I have seen no ads about prop 64 in California - why has this been kept so quiet?

Re: “Low-Income Tenants to be Directly Displaced by Development in El Cerrito

I know the people in the photo, and it breaks my heart to hear of this. I pray they all have found safe and affordable housing. I too find myself now in search of affordable housing. There is no way I can return to the Bay Area or other desirable places, but there are lots of good agencies out there who are being more compassionate and helpful than before, understanding how many people are losing their homes.

Re: “Housing Groups Slam Proposal to Redefine Affordable Housing in Oakland

Hi everybody, I am Mrs Leiter Roberson ,currently living in canada. I am married at the moment with two kids and i was struck in a financial situation and i needed to refinance and pay for my son medical bill. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success,and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, i was introduced to a private loan lender Mr Tony Seth by a friend and i got a loan sum of 65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment. So dear,if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan with low interest rate of 2.5% and better repayment plans and schedule,please contact Mr Tony Seth he doesnt know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let the world know more about him, he offers all kinds of loans to both individuals and company and also i want God to bless him more.

I can't believe this is in the EAST Bay Express. What a rude title. If this is how you feel, please move to SF, we don't want you. Consider a revision.

Re: “OUSD Aims to Put Its Money Where Its Values Are

Looking at the picture accompaning this article. Food is all one bland color, everything looks fried, no salad. Is this what they are serving at Oakland High?? Who plans the menus? What is their background?? That is the person we should know about. Sounds like too many government, business and union folks involved.…

Re: “How a Handful of Pro-Charter Billionaires Flooded Oakland's School Board Elections With Cash

Will hundreds of thousands buy a better Oakland School system or an Oakland School Board that supports Republican ex New York Mayor Bloomberg's stop and frisk education policy of growing unregulated charter schools?

A way for Oakland voters to disrespect the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party is by electing bought Oakland School Board majority that will grow more charter schools. Some of existing Oakland charters refuse to provide the Feds free breakfast program likely for fear hungry students might lower their test scores.

Re: “Town Business: Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center to Become Private Offices

There are so many excellent deficiencies for which to criticize me, certainly, but there's not much I can do about my age, Max! (I'll try not to taunt you as you gain in years yourself. May your hair never grey, your paunch never paunch, your steps never slow, your youngers never rag on you.) Had it not been for some of us stupid aged ones, a cathedral would loom in front of the auditorium today.

Re: “Oakland Police Union Spending Thousands on Effort to Unseat Councilmembers Kalb and Gallo

The problem of understaffing of police officers in Oakland has been a decades long problem. And so has the problem of accountability. The recent scandal in OPD and it's depth have proven once again the department is incapable of holding its own officers accountable. And in an era of growing militarization of police departments, it is more incumbent than ever to retain civilian control and monitoring of our nation's police forces. Oakland with all its problems is no exception. Police now have growing tools to surveil all residents and politicians. IMO OPD has always had too much sway over Oakland's politicians and residents. It is incumbent for the preservation of our democracy and republic that police departments be held accountable by civilian police review boards and commissions. Dan Kalb has shown great courage and integrity in bringing this measure along with Noel Gallo. He deserves the full support of his district and the entire city's residents.

Re: “Hayward, the City that Banned Happy Hour

Happy hour is still illegal in Hayward for bars unless they serve food. The ban was lifted only for restaurants. Any bars caught serving a happy hour is fined by the HPD.
