Re: “Oakland Firefighters Say Their Department Is So Badly Managed, Ghost Ship Warehouse Wasn't Even In Its Inspection Database

Mr Eroster I assume your economic calculation is correct but remember due to Prop 13 that is irrelevant . Just determine the assessed
value when acquired and the most it can be increased is 2% a year. This under assessment of commercial property is the cause of many of our City's financial problems.

Re: “Coastal Peril

It is too bad that you did not take the time to develop the other argument that may favor change. Historically the commission staff has tried very hard to lead the commission not just advise it.A perfect example of that was the approval of the desalinization plant in San Diego County. Staff .The staff fought it at every step and the commission nevertheless narrowly approved it. Now that plant is part of the solution to our drought problem . We need a commission staff that has a broad view of California's needs not just zealously opposing every proposal to do something in the coastal zone.
The commission members should be able to make policy not the staff. That is the real issue.
P.s. Yes there is a real issue with the lack of diversity in the commission staff.
Oh yes how about commission staff fighting with the State Department of parks over attempts to manage parking.

Keeping in mind that California is a large complex state which needs solutions for all of its people I am completely confident that the keeping in mind that California is a large complex state which needs solutions for all of its people I am completely confident that she will find a middle ground and if her judgment requires dams then I will support that. California is one state.
