Re: “Oakland's Street-Repair Deficit is Deep. The Mayor Says a $600 Million Bond Needed to Address the Problem.

Right now, I do not trust any proposal originating from the Mayor's Office. Any property owner, who is not residing or registered to vote in Oakland will not be able to vote for or against this proposal. Further, I have little or no confidence in any internal City of Oakland accounting practices or capabilities. And to make matters even worse, there is no input from the City of Oakland City Auditors Office. Essentially, renters who are registered to vote can vote but property owners cannot. This is the worst proposal I have seen in years. I would urge a NO vote on this or any other tax proposal bearing the support and approval of the Oakland City Council.

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

As this sordid affair plays out, there are many other equally important issues languishing in Oakland.

One such issue is the ever increasing incidents of illegal dumping. On many occasions I have contacted the Mayor's Office to give greater attention to this issue. To this day, I have received no response from Mayor Libby Schaaf. Various individuals I have spoken with inform me that Mayor Schaaf has actually thwarted community efforts to deal with this pandemic issue.

If Mayor Schaaf cannot or will not address this issue, perhaps Oaklanders need a mayor who will. Citizens of Oakland have suffered too long from mayors who get elected and proceed to do
nothing to improve the quality of life. We deserve and should demand better.

Re: “#LibbyLeaks: Oakland Mayor Launches Investigation Against City and Police Whistleblowers

While this is going on, the efforts to combat illegal dumping in Oakland languishes while Mayor Schaaf basically ignores this pandemic problem.

Perhaps the duties of this office are beyond Mayor Schaaf's willingness and capabilities to fulfill the needs of the good people of Oakland.

Re: “Rent Hike May Force Oakland's Genova Delicatessen to Close

Yes, this would be a definite loss to Oakland. I hope that some compromise can be arrived at for the good of the community.
