Re: “Two Bay Area Incidents That Explain Why People Don't Trust Government

Who doesn't think the public ethics commission, or some other body, should have the power to fine or punish gov officials that break laws? (Except officials that break laws.)

Since most of us agree on that, what needs to happen to fix it? What/who is preventing it?

That'd be a good follow up to this article.

Re: “Hacking Oakland's Budget

Thanks Leonard. Though we'd love to, there's no rushing any data that's confined to a PDF, which is where it is for now.

Also, creating a tool to consider different budget scenarios would require vastly more technical and research capacity than we now have as an all-volunteer group. We'd be happy to collaborate with folks that want to support that work though -- we meet every Tuesday at City Hall.

And to the city's credit, they have visualized the 5-year projection -- http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca1/groups/c… -- what is lacking are opportunities to have a public dialogue about it, and ways to capture the best ideas that surface as a result. That's what we're working on.
