Re: “Opinion: We Must Stand for Choice

Jovanka Beckles is a mean spirited, holier than thou far left person, who has accomplished nothing but divisiveness on the Richmond City Council. She is so far inferior a candidate that it is remarkable anyone would support her. See this piece in Berkeleyside, just to get a flavor of Beckles and her way of dealing with people.

Re: “Richmond Mayor and Sons Profiting from Cannabis Compliance Push

Mr. Smith,

I completely support the right of the citizens of unincorporated North Richmond to stay out of the City if that is,what they want. Even though Richmonds taxes are among the highest in the Bay, annexing North Richmond would almost certainly be a net drain on the citys coffers for years to come. As a resident of incorporated Richmond, I cant say I would be unhappy if the voters in North Richmond vote no. That said, the history of annexation or lack thereof in North Richmond is one of racial and economic segregation, which is unfortunate.

Re: “Richmond Mayor and Sons Profiting from Cannabis Compliance Push

This is hack journalism. The writer should know the mayor has no power over the actions of city building officials, and there is zero evidence that he or his sons attempted to intervene in that process. Occasionally, the East Bay Express does decent work, but this is an article that should have been better investigated, and the editorial board should have exercised more restraint in publishing something like this without corroboration right before an election. But then again, the EBE lways been all infor the RPA and its brand of far left, largely incompetent management of the city. Read the EBE for news about upcoming concerts and events, but their hard news capabilities are severely lacking.

Re: “Big Money Stole Richmond’s Renter Protections, and Allegedly Lied While Doing It

This is a salacious and one sided article, exactly what one would expect from the East Bay Express. The fact is that the RPA is the entity here that is funded by big money -- money from the public employee unions that keep it power in exchange for having their way come contract time. It should not be a surprise that interests representing providers of rental housing and real estate agents supported the petition. After all, they were all branded as "evil" "dirty dogs" by the RPA, even though most of the landlords in Richmond are small mom and pop owners of plexes. The fact is that rent control was extremely controversial and passed by a bare minimum vote of the council. There are very good reasons to oppose it and the RPA seems terrified of putting it to a vote of the people, which is all this petition does. I am not a landlord or a tenant, but I did study economics and understand how destructive and counterproductive this,ordinance will be if it ends up being upheld.
