Re: “Kaplan, Bates, deHaan, and Roy, Plus No on 8

The East Bay Express must be abusing someone's access to Oaksterdam medicine. There is no other way to explain your endorsement of incumbent Peralta Trustee Marcie Hodge (Area 2) over challenger Marlon McWilson.
You cite his felony convictions as the sole reason for the endorsement, yet you obviously asked no further questions nor did any further research.
In her four years on the Board--besides her questioning of the International Student program--Hodge has done nothing for Peralta Colleges students.
I never saw her at any committee meetings for the Board, and was only using the Peralta Board as a stepping stone for the Oakland City Council.
McWilson on the other hand, has worked with youth, is working with ex-offenders, and will not only bring some new energy to the Board, but can tip the scales of the current Board majority on some issues.
It is easy to focus on the alleged criminal past of a Black man but you dismiss her criminal neglect of her constituents. (You forgot to mention that her brother Jason Hodge tried to punk McWilson out of running.)
I would've supported Johnny Lorigo (as I did in 2004) or Darleen Brooks (who opted not to run) opposed to Hodge. But we got McWilson (who both Lorigo and Brooks support) and I'm with him.
Y'all slipped on this one.

Re: “An Unresolved Death

I lived on Grand Street for a year and had more than one visitor tell me that they almost drove "into the water." I'm glad that the detour got put up, but it is unfortunate that this sister had to lose her life. RIP.
