Re: “Oakland Must Re-Imagine Code Enforcement As Advocate For Community Health and Safety

No re-imagination of code enforcement is necessary for rental properties.

A person renting out a property isn't a low income individual. Certainly a company isn't. If either category can't or won't maintain the property so as to make it habitable by the code, they need to divest, either voluntarily or be forced.

Cases like Ghostship and the halfway "halfway house" cannot be tolerated.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Fire Department Still Seriously Under-Staffed

Ya know, ya gotta wonder why he couldn't get the arithmetic correct... And if something THAT simple is wrong, what else is?

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Fire Department Still Seriously Under-Staffed

Here he goes again... Half written, half done work by the carpet bagger. Here's a real article on the problem:…

See how it should be done?

Re: “City of Livermore Continues To Hide Records Related To Former Police Officer Accused Of Sex Crimes In 'Celeste Guap' Case

I'm no fan of cops. I am a fan or process.

Were the accused in this anyone BUT, law enforcement Burris would be screaming at the top of his lungs to close off an investigation conducted in this manner.

Please note, I said accused. Innocent until proven guilty? And you don't get to go fishing to prove guilt; else the riders would still be in operation.

Re: “Oakland's Poorest Neighborhoods Will Be The Most Susceptible to Flooding Due To Climate Change And Sea-Level Rise

Yes, the Oakland low lands are screwed... So are Long Island, Martinez, Concord and Miami Beach (all of Florida for that matter, but is THAT a loss, really?).

Rising sea level WILL effect everyone not just "the most vulnerable" (jeeze! what an emotionally manipulative string to pull). It won't matter if you have money or privilege or not. Everyone get's screwed. Blatantly manipulative attempts like this cost credibility. They don't motivate anyone.

And please do notice, I say will, not if.

Re: “Community and Labor Groups Say Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf Has Stacked the Planning Commission with Real Estate Industry Reps

I'm not too sure where else developers or architects (landscape included) tend to work BUT in the that industry.

Again, a half written, innuendo laden partisan smear; without even a pretense of solutions. Just "you did it wrong!!!!!"

Re: “Oakland Officials Want to Ban Flavored Blunt Wrappers, Two-Pack Cigars, And Vape Juice

It seems Oakland city government isn't the only ones with a case of the spring time stupids:…

Maybe it's too much 420?
