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

When we go to bed with Republican ex NY Mayor Bloomberg because we like his massive financial support of our HH soda tax and his support of gun control, he's bought our silence over his financial domination of our school board elections. That's why NYC voters got sick of his after 3 terms. They were tired of him of his elitist bs. Maybe it take a wealthy elitist to counter big money food and gun lobbies. But maybe it's not worth the Faustian price.

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

Naomi says "probably not tech offices". What garbage.

Orton is proposing market rate office space in what will be the single most prestigious and ostentatious office address in the City of Oakland, if not the entire East Bay.

Who, besides tech companies, has the excess capital to throw at that kind of office space? Maybe Naomi is telling the truth, maybe it will be hedge funds instead of tech offices. Oh great, as if that makes the destruction of the most historic venue in Oakland any less atrocious.

Watch in the coming weeks and months as Naomi and the other aging members of the Me Generation in her clique try to spin this disaster as something good for Oakland.

Their idea of history is to polish up old buildings so that grey haired folks in straw hats can go on walking tours and talk about architectural details. Real historic preservation would be preserving this building as public venue that it was intended to be when Oakland taxpayers approved a bond to build it over 100 years ago.

Re: “Proposition 64 Leads in the Polls. But Insiders Say Weed Prohibition's End is No Sure Thing.

You are wrong Blake. Truth of the matter is that real liberals are about as bad as real republicans.


I'm sorry you are not getting the Holy Grail but in reality it doesn't exist. 64 is better than the current social situation and has built in structures to improve as others are convinced legal cannabis will not destroy the fabric of society.

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

The deal is a ground lease. The money Oakland will receive for the lease is a public good which will pay for social programs, schools, public safety, infrastructure, etc. I think the redevelopment plan is amazing. It leaves most of the building as it is and brings the property back to a remarkable community asset. Take a look: Cheer-up.

Re: “Five Memorable Rants from Kanye West's Concert Last Night In Oakland

For the same amount of money, you could see three underground shows where the artists give it 100% because they have something to prove, rather than one mainstream show where some overstuffed ego phones it in and coasts on their fame. Plus you'll actually be able to see and hear the artists doing their thing on stage, rather than being lost in an endless sea of phone screens.

Skip Kanye. Skip Beyonce. Skip all that Top 40 shit. You've heard it all already! You can do better in the Bay Area.

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

My names are Flora Mills and i am a single parent from Washington Dc USA; When i was seeking for a loan, i was scammed several times before i met a friend who directed me to Global Loan Firm . Initially i was afraid to go into the operation but my friend advised me to apply that she also obtained her loan from the company when she needed an urgent loan for business and clearing of debts. Then i took the challenge which actually worked out for me without any form of credit check, no cosigner, no collateral and for just 3% interest rate i got a loan of $80,000 after paying the fee they asked for. Since then i have decided to publish them all over for those who need a loan. I have been scammed of $5,450 till i met this company that is also located in USA who saved me out of debt and my story has changed today. You can contact them via Email: and i assure you that you will testify just as i am doing now

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

Orten is developing it, but who will own it? Will the city still own all or part of it, and be collecting the income it eventually generates? If not, why not? If it's being leased to the developer, it should be a limited number of years before the city controls it again.

Would've been a great place to put the main branch of the library, or expand the museum, or make it part of Laney College, or Oakland sports and rec dept facility or.... But, alas, no money for better uses...

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

Such a sad place to arrive at, just selling any soul left to new office uses, so sad to see this just turn into class a drivel.

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

I can't believe Oakland will loose this wonderful resource. Over the I years I've seen concerts, High School basketball and roller derby games and quarter midge auto races (my oldest sister was queen of the race in 1959). I love many of the change Oakland is currently experiencing. However, we need to preserve our history not throw it away.

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

"The other two-thirds of new office space built in the converted Kaiser Center auditorium side of the building will be rented at market rates as general commercial office space. Likely tenants include tech companies, attorneys, and similar professional firms." was the plan from the start. When no (local) arts organizations come forward to rent the class A office space, as it was advertised, it will be 100% market rate and another public asset will be privatized. The function, legacy and soul will be lost was the plan from the start.

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

View-corridor obsessives like OHA, Naomi and James Vann lobbied against the alternate, convention preservation, new hotel tower option and this is what we're left with.
