Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

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 .

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

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.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

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 filled out the "poll" as well and never got a follow-up message.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

I guess the Mayor wants a rubber stamp (Moore) and not someone on the council that actually fights for tenants rights (Measure JJ) , environmental justice (No Coal Trains in Oakland) or a police Commision accountable to the citizens. Vote Kaplan

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

The bigger question here are the ethics of EMC. EMC generally does legitimate polling for groups or candidate interested in how voters perceive candidates and issues. My wife received this email poll, and it was clearly an attempt to advocate for Moore. The poll never disclosed who was behind it, but it was quite clear that it was put out to support Moore. Time for EMC to step up and provide full disclosure with their polls. Otherwise, any results they produce should be viewed with great skepticism.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

I participated in that poll! Last week. It didn't seem very "partial" to me at the time. It felt skewed toward Peggy Moore the more I think about it. No pun intended. I received no "follow-up" either.

Re: “Oakland Police Union Writes $1,400 Check to Unseat Councilmember Noel Gallo

She was asked at the Democratic Forum Thursday and she kind've seemed to support it but now that I think about it, did not actually say that. Also said she wasn't supporting Measure JJ, renters' protections.

Re: “Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0

what is really crazy is that this post comes from 2009, that's 7 years and YELP just keeps on moving. Very SAD for the business community

Re: “Oakland Police Union Writes $1,400 Check to Unseat Councilmember Noel Gallo

Great idea! I would like to know her position, as well.

Re: “Oakland Police Union Writes $1,400 Check to Unseat Councilmember Noel Gallo

How about reaching Gonzalez and asking her position on the ballot measure?

Re: “Portal Owner Goes Pizza with Philomena in East Oakland

"yet undeveloped restaurant neighborhoods" Pretty soon that area will be so "developed" no resident who lives there now will be able to afford to eat at this pizza or (inevitable) brunch place. This is how an "affordable" (read: "less affluent") neighborhood gets colonized by white gentrifiers and turned into the next Temescal. Another restaurant for high-so's making inroads.

Re: “Cooking Other People's Food: How Chefs Appropriate Bay Area 'Ethnic' Cuisine

This is the new Oakland. They (always white, always with might) have the money and the power and the "in." Uber is leading the way. Within 5 years West Oakland will probably have a Whole Foods, wiping out local community farmers markets and these hipster high-so restaurants with their fake rustic/poverty porn ovens and grills will be everywhere. There is just no end to this parade of slick, well-heeled, heavily financed celebrity chef wannabes and their Moet swilling tech millionaire followers. When's this sh*t going to end? Looks like they've just begun.

It's fantastic to see such a useful post. I also can be helpful here :) Maybe you would be interested in an online service with a ton of Form templates (tax, real estate, legal, business, insurance forms, etc..) I used it to fill out http://goo.gl/PUaMtq
