Re: “Gentrification Station: Why Oakland Still Says NO to Uber

Well, a quick google on Mr Aguilar shows he is yet another out of state, out of bay area academic carpet bagger come to waggle their fingers in our faces and attempt to shame those they don't approve of or pay them off in some way and no real experience in much of anything.

In short, no story here. Ignore him and move along.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Discovers Extra $7.13 Million Hidden in Police Department's Proposed Budget

The soda tax was INTENDED to make soda more expensive and less attractive to consume. Every where such are enacted, use drops. THAT was the intent.

The additional funds generated are, for all intents and purposes, a side effect used to sell the idea of the tax.

Re: “Gentrification Station: Why Oakland Still Says NO to Uber

Who the hell is Orson Aguilar and what office was he elected? Companies, corporations, and small businesses purchase real estate for their own reasons with the ultimate goal to earn a profit or create a return on investment. Zoning is the municipal process in which industries can distinguish where they are welcome and where they are a burden. Zoning is the process, not some community "activism" or whatever that nonsense is called. People are investing,with real money, into Oakland. That's a good thing. As they do, prices will likely rise as demand soars. If you can't afford it-leave or get a higher paying or second job. I fled the suburbs, Antioch, a few years ago, to move to Oakland. Love it. Orson- did you take Economics in high school or college? Nothing personal here, but the demands your group is making on a property owner are wrong.

Shouldn't a city of this size have enough talent and cross-checking in their accounting team not to make a rookie mistake like "whoops, that's a one-time expense"?

Re: “Oakland A's Minority Owners Purchase Downtown SRO After Previous Landlord Evicted Low-Income Tenants

Good article highlighting a problem in SRO housing units.
If the City passed a moratorium on SRO conversions until December 2018, then I assume the investor is betting on the longer term and won't attempt to convert before then?
Also I'm curious why the city only passed a moratorium for such a short time period? Seems like this is a textbook example why the moratorium is needed for a longer period.

Re: “Oakland City Council Fights Over How to Reduce Homicides, Violence

I find it ironic that Desley Brooks is opposing creating a new department to deal with a very troubling and persistent problem when she was so gung ho a couple years ago to create a new department of Race and Equity that so few people supported. I'm not even sure I support creating a new department. Just wanted to point out how the erratic behavior by our District 6 council person continues to affect the council and the city.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Discovers Extra $7.13 Million Hidden in Police Department's Proposed Budget

"she projected a small deficit and relied on dipping into soda tax money as a balancing measure." Really I taught that money was supposed to go somewhere else not fill wasteful gaps created by the Mayor and City of Oakland. Once again tax payers have been duped.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Discovers Extra $7.13 Million Hidden in Police Department's Proposed Budget

"The Public Bank of Oakland that the City Council so far has refused to sign off on...

"Based on the performance of the public bank in North Dakota, Oakland's bank should be able to generate...additional funds for the City of Oakland and its people."

The public bank idea may be a good one. Not for a city like Oakland I'm afraid.

A state like North Dakota has legal standing and other resources that a city like Oakland does not possess. Oakland has had a well-documented history of financial irresponsibility. A local public bank might work in another California city. Here it could be nothing other than another disaster.

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Discovers Extra $7.13 Million Hidden in Police Department's Proposed Budget

Use of the word "Hidden" in the title, to imply that someone was trying to hide this. But - nobody was trying to hide this, and the error was found by the City of Oakland and disclosed to the public.

Another day at EBX, turning news into propaganda whenever possible.
