Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Mr. Gammon, you do not engage in "reporting," because you make absolutely no effort to discuss the concerns of the other side. The same was true of your offhand dismissal of Denisha Delane's and Adolfo Cabral's candidacies for District 2. You really should identify your writing more accurately as "opinion" or "editorial." It is not in any way "news reporting."
Clearly, according to the Express, the only criterion worth considering is whether the candidate is prodevelopment. Nothing else matters, right?
Mr. Gammon, I see a big future for you in marketing. Like the Yes on T flyer I just received. Hey, no downsides! I have to say, I am so weary of this machine, and I am a devoted contributor to the Democratic Party.
We readers expect the journalist to provide a fair evaluation of an issue. You have not represented the viewpoints of residents and businesses in West Berkeley regarding Measure T, just those of its proponents. You simply bought the line. Good luck with your career.
When I moved to Dwight Way in the early 80s, this 36-foot-wide residential street had a fair amount of traffic, and Tom Bates pledged in public to do "something" about it. Well, what we've had is thousands more cars a day, and they are increasingly backed up and my living room smells like exhaust. Studies evidence the health issues of t heavy-traffic proximity. It is an outrage that the few open east-west streets are taking so much traffic, and the West Berkeley project promises even more. We on Dwight Way are the victims of Bates, Moore, and Capitelli. The traffic on theopen east-west streets is the reason I oppose Measure T. Darryl, why don't you represent the people of your district? You don't, you haven't, and you lie about what you have supposedly done here in District 2. You consistently vote with the hills, not the flats. Your only interests are your developer friends and your bid for the Assembly. You should be ashamed of yourself.
