Re: “Why Aren't There More Latinx Nights in Oakland?

To me, Oakland has always been about Safety. Especially with the Ladies!

If you notice, the only Latino parties that get packed are the venues [shows and concerts]. It's crowded, well lit, parking available and plenty of security. I believe Ladies feel safe there!

The last time I went to Oakland's bars, the ratio of guys to ladies was about 3 to 1. And ... the front doors of a bar I was at .... had to be closed temporarily, due to a shooting across the street.

Oakland still has that reputation!

Re: “Study: Higher Minimum Wage and Other Progressive Policies Have Not Hurt Economic Growth in California

Well "a study" is just that. While the study might have some merit the author seems to have an agenda in conducting this study so why not publish it in a peer reviewed economics journal? Let other determine if the basis of the claims made has any statistical or useful merit? Then make fuss about it!

Re: “New Oakland Fire Chief: City Needs to Hire More Firefighters and Inspectors

I'm trying to come up with a clever phrase for Mayor Schaaf to use regarding public safety, especially fire safety (the other kind--having to dodge flying lead--is probably not worth the bother).

How about "Oakland loves to shout 'fire' everywhere because we really care."

A clever phrase can work much more effectively than actually solving a problem. Especially in Oakland.
