Re: “Meet Oakland's New Go-To Lobbyist

I am one of the proud members of the San Antonio Fruitvale Neighborhood Improvement Coalition. Our organization was created by a collective of activists because EBAYC, OCO, and Urban Strategies refused to even hear our viewpoint. For years these organizations held a monopoly on public discourse in our community. We have repeatedly met with these groups, in our own living rooms in an honest attempt to reach resolution. BOTH SIDES have made concessions. By attacking one of our members, David has made me seriously question his desire to work together. Surely this is not what the Planning Commission intended when they asked that we work together. Shame on you, David!

-As a person who has spent many hours coming in good faith to the table to negotiate with David, I am extremely disturbed by his decision to use a newspaper article to spread lies about a respected member of our community.

-As a Fruitvale resident, I am honored to have Carlos Plazola advocate on behalf of our community. Thank you, Carlos!
