Re: “Ferryboats and McMansions

First the school board, now the ferries! Soon the state will usurp our entire local government! Local control!

Re: “A New Look at Crime

Layna - My post about it was only like a week ago. I certainly would not call that "ages". I think Crimespotting is an amazing tool, and the more publicity it gets, the better.

Re: “A New Look at Crime

Yes, Crimespotting is great. It used to be exceedingly frustrating to have to struggle through the crime "maps" on Crimewatch.

Re: “Jerry Brown's Amazing Powers of Hindsight

I wish that the funding for Measure FF had passed. That would have added police positions that are sorely needed - it included additional forensic specialists and doubled the number of homicide investigators. Much better than Measure Y, but compromising with PUEBLO and such was apparently the only way Oaklanders were willing to vote for more police.

Re: “Jerry Brown's Amazing Powers of Hindsight

I don't really understand the point of this post. Brown is just repeating what he did (or tried to do) as Mayor. He encouraged private investment, resulting in increased development and tax revenue, and repeatedly tried to increase the size of the police department.
