Re: “Friday’s Briefing: OUSD Overspent by Millions on Admin and Consultants; Half of Bay Area Renters Are ‘Economically Burdened’

There is way too many positions in the OAL athletic department. All you need is 1 good commissioner that knows what he is doing. That is how it has always been. Start cutting there first.

Before making any cuts to the already stressed local schools, the OUSD Board should order the new Supt. to send out layoff notices to every HQ employee and notify consultants/constants of an economic emergency that will require re-negotiation if they want to do business with OUSD in the future.

OUSD should hurry up and fill the CFO and Internal Auditor positions that have been vacant for over a year.

Find your board member. Call AND email them before they've decided how they will vote in two weeks.

Re: “New Ballpark Could Devastate Lake Merritt's Birds

Gosh what NIMBYS will do to prevent Oakland from rising. Instead of complaining about how it could possibly be littered in the future they should go clean it now. Go check out how dirty is is right now, and homeless encampment alongside of it as well is what's causing the littering. Also, this area is not Madagascar, nor should we pretend it is.

Re: “Oakland Looks to Close Owner Move-In and Occupancy Loopholes, Reduce Evictions and Harmful Rent Increases

I'm a landlord with just one small unit. Virtually all of my tenants have been richer than I am. The idea that I should pay the guy who makes 4x what I do every year "a substantial amount" to relocate so I can move my elderly mother in is preposterous!

The assistance should be based on need and shared equally by the whole community the way that "food stamps" are. I'm happy to pay my share but yu don't expect Safeway or the corner market to sell people food at the same price they did 20 years ago so why am I singled out?
