Re: “Crucial Legislation for New Oakland Police Commission Stalls in Committee as Activists and Councilmembers Fight Over Rules

Thanks, Darwin, for this 'fair and balanced' presentation of what happened Tuesday night and why. We are going to request a meeting with Dan Kalb in hopes that we can agree on some of the outstanding issues that divide us and move the process forward expeditiously. But it is critical to equip the Commission with a structure and process that will engender community trust and transparency.

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

As to Uber gate... While the wheels of justice turn slowly, they do turn surely. The near criminal CEO, Travis Kalanick has been ousted as has the board member trying to walk in his shoes.

While some may be salivating for blood on the walls, I view this as a positive step.

Guilt by association must NOT be allowed. The approximately 12,000 employees shouldn't be penalized because the boss is a jerk.

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.
