Re: “The Old Mervyn's Headquarters in Hayward Underscores a Lack of Resources to Address the City's Homelessness Crisis

gee how the time flies, seems like just yesterday that the stores were in their heyday, but, all good things come to an end. i am sure the city will be glad to see the success of the housing project in any case. when SEARS goes, everything must follow, though.

Re: “Will Oakland Become First U.S. City To Ditch Wall Street And Establish A Public Bank?

I agree with all the commenters who have a healthy dose of skepticism. Oakland government seems financially illiterate (and also governance illiterate- like filling potholes, or inspecting buildings for fire safety, the pension crisis coming, the myriad of ways in which Oakland city government has shown its ineptitude. Then there are the ethical challenges Oakland officials have as well. I wouldn't rush in- some things just have to be sorted out prior. Why not make a requirement of Oakland city officials, at least some, to "... have strong backgrounds in finance but also be dedicated to the mission of public service. "

Re: “Berkeley's New Progressive Majority Gets Serious About Homelessness Solutions

This really does a lot to show how out of touch the city of berkeley is with their homeless community. One visit to any of these camps and you can immediatly see that any solution to this problem must first include drug and alcohol treatment. Lets make a realistic path to end homelessness, not just build nicer homeless camps.
