Re: “A Bare-Knuckle Fight for Top Cop

Issues of police brutality/accountability, mass incarceration threaded from pre-k to prison, the piling on of charges in order to get a defendant to plead to a deal, human trafficking of girls and all other issues decided by the District Attorney impact mainly brown and black residents of Alameda County. To suggest that Pamela Price is a "knee jerk liberal" because she wants to hold police accountable for their actions, maintain an independent D.A.'s office by not taking donations from police unions, support rehabilitation, restorative practices and end cash bail is to suggest that you want to see conservative, anti-justice practices continued. Prosecuting criminals is the job of the D.A., yes, but the office can be brought into the 21st century without losing its focus. Not every nail needs to be whacked into oblivion by a hammer.

Re: “BREAKING NEWS: Oakland City Attorney Said Luxury Tower Deal Is Illegal

Mr. Hobart Johnson:
In response to your comment about the Public Ethics Commission evaluating this real estate deal or anything perceived to be "ethically stinky" ... As an Ethics Commissioner, I encourage you or anyone wanting to file a complaint or anyone with questions about the purview of the Commission to contact the PEC Staff at EthicsCommission@Oaklandnet.com or call 510-238-3120 . Measure CC mandated authority to the Commission to " conduct investigations, audits and public hearings, issue subpoenas to compel the production of books, papers and documents, take testimony on any matter pending before the Commission and impose sanctions, penalties and fines as provided for by ordinance." (PEC Ordinance 11961 C.M.S. 3. a., b.,c.).
Anyone is welcome to contact the PEC involving conflict of interest, campaign financing, registration of lobbyists, supplementation of the Brown Act and the "Oakland Sunshine Ordinance" and public ethics. We're working on a more transparent and accountable Oakland and we need and appreciate community input.
Thank you.
