Re: “The Clock is Ticking at Point Molate

Excellent article!

Besides the "old white people" who spoke to the council (btw, five people spoke at the 3:00 council meeting before closed session), there were at least a dozen people holding signs stating "save our Point Molate", and "keep public land in public hands", etc.

There are youth groups of color who are against this plan, They could not make it to the council meeting to speak out. Tom Butt has to stop being a bully. After all, he is an old white person himself, and he is bringing old white men from outside of Richmond to profit off of our public land.

Nat Bates should learn more about sustainable jobs. Construction jobs are not sustainable, and most of those jobs go to people living outside of Richmond. We need a plan for Point Molate that incorporates sustainable jobs for people that live in Richmond. By stating that the" speakers were not from Richmond, didn't care about Richmond, and didn't pay taxes in Richmond", was a low blow which started the "riot" as Tom Butt called it. The Base Realignment and Closure Act of 1990 didn't include housing as economic development.

Re: “While Oakland Is Worried About Getting Coal, Richmond Is Covered in It

Figures Richard Mitchell did not return your calls and emails. He never returns them. He is just as guilty about the hazards of this as are the trains and Levine Terminal. I absolutely do not trust Me. Mitchell.

Re: “The Firing of Captain Mark Gagan

I am afraid Tom Butt got a free ride in this article. No criticism of him getting money for his election from the Police Officers Union. Mr. Butt as much stated when speaking publicly to the press in Point Richmond about the Guap debacle, what do you want us to do, take them out and shoot them (meaning the police involved in the Guap affair)? Mr. Butt also jumped on the Alameda County D.A. for criticizing Richmonds PD for wanting to send Guap to Florida. Butt told the Alameda D.A. to get out of Richmonds business.

Re: “Oakland, Richmond, Berkeley Leaders Vow to Protect Immigrants Against Trump Administration

Our infrastructure is already crumbling due to lack of funds by the Feds. I don't think it's going to make that much of a difference. I'm all for sanctuary cities. It's the only way to fight back against the horror that the Trump administration is.

Re: “Vote McLaughlin, Beckles, Myrick, and Eduardo Martinez for Richmond City Council

Jim Rogers is bad news. He was going to be disbarred by the California Bar for unscrupulous law practices, but quit before he was disbarred. See your own EBX article here:…
How the hell did he get on the Richmond City Council? Who would hire him knowing was going to be disbarred? Why should the voters of Richmond hire him? BTW, he is not an independent. He is now on the Chevron bandwagon, and is also being supported by the National Realtors Association. He also voted for the casino at Pt. Molate, voting "yes" with Nat Bates after the voters of Richmond sent out a resounding "no". Do not vote for Jim Rogers!

Re: “Chevron Bids to Retake Richmond

Ramsey fails to mention that the budget deficit is due to Chevron's fire and explosion of August 2012, lowering their property value and therefore less tax money for Richmond and the county.

Re: “Richmond Mayor to Tour Ecuadorian Region Devastated by Chevron

This is fantastic. Please stand corrected regarding Chevron as Richmond's biggest employer. That part is true, but also verify by stating that only six to ten percent of Chevron's employees at the Richmond refinery live in Richmond. Out of 1200 employees that's only 72 to 120 that are Richmond residents.
