Re: “Will Oakland Arts Organizations Find A Home at the Rehabilitated Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center?

I'm unclear why convention use is ruled out? With tech companies coming to town, they want and need space to host user conventions. Currently I believe the only space in Oakland is the Marriott Convention center.

Re: “Inclusive Weed Entrepreneurs: Supernova Women

While I support making cannabis policy more "inclusive" and reversing damage caused by the War on Drugs, I am skeptical of efforts to promote cannabis industry as an economic solution for Oakland. Oakland's lax cannabis policy (lack of any enforcement by OPD) has resulted in a cottage grow-house industry, as I have personally witnessed in my neighborhood.

Re: “Mad Props: A Roundup of the 17 Initiatives on California's November 2016 Ballot

Proposition 53 is essentially an anti high speed rail measure, which the author failed to point out.

Re: “The High Costs of Outsourcing Police

To me the entire problem boils down to CA government code. I am convinced that the people who are the police in Oakland are no better or worse than the police in other cities. Having a local residency requirement as other cities in other states do would certainly help the local police understand their city better and empathize with the residents they are being paid to protect, serve and sometimes, discipline / arrest. So why can't the government code be changed? Isn't that what our legislators get paid to do? (fix legislation that doesn't work.)
