Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I have read the comments over the last two days with great interest and want to clear up two of Mr. Gannon's comments about me. Both incorrect assumptions and just outright misrepresentation.
First, I was in no way part of the 1986 charter amendment efforts which, by the way were strongly supported by our city's African American community so I guess this means that you are accusing that community of gerrymandering tactics. As concrete evidence of that fact, I did not move to Berkeley until 1996.
Secondly, I am running an independent campaign as are all the other candidates. The following is an excerpt from Berkeleyside http://www.berkeleyside.com/2012/08/13/ros…
“I am not part of a coalition,” said McCormick. “All of us are running our campaigns independently. I am working to ensure that Tom Bates doesn’t get reelected. So is Kriss. So is Khalil.”
“We are displaying the kind of cooperation that Berkeley voters deserve,” said Worthington. “The three of us clearly have very different perspectives and experience and priorities but all of us — and many more — are ready to have a new mayor.”
I am glad to have had the opportunity to clear up these questions and invite all to the website for my campaign: www.mccormick4mayor.com

MIchael Salkin, my husband, works for Morgan Stanley in their financial services group. Bond underwritings are handled by the institutional desk. Michael would not have known about this transaction and the reference noted in these comments has been communicated with Morgan Stanley management. Additionally, as to stocks listed on Form 700, the only one in my portfolio is Citi. All the others reside in Michael's holdings. If married, state law requires the disclosure of all stock ownership even if they are separate property. Perhaps, archaic in this day and age but also understandable and we complied. -- Jacquelyn McCormick
