Re: “Vote With Us! The East Bay Express' Endorsements for Election Day 2016

I'm voting no on G1, another $120 OUSD parcel tax. Yes, another, the last one just went into effect last year. OUSD doesn't seem to be able to budget for more than a few months at a time. And the processing of exemptions to the last parcel tax for seniors and low-income people was so badly bungled
they're still working on it. OUSD did not provide adequate notification to eligible homeowners of the application process for exemptions. Finally,
Oakland's parcel taxes are flat, regressive taxes--only city in the area to fail to try to base them on size/value of property.

Re: “Arrests Are Down, and Crime Is Up

Thanks for this article on rising crime in Oakland. If the chief of police and his top assistants refuse to take responsibility and insist that they can't "arrest our way out of
the problem" of murderers and other criminals patrolling our streets, clearly no amount of additional officers on the force will make the slightest difference. The dense
thinking and lack of acountability at the top has to go before officers on the street get the kind of management and direction that will make a difference. Sounds like
Chief Word has to acknowledge the false premise in this dismal excuse and change directions, or Mayor Dellums should replace him.
