Re: “Jean Quan Should Fire Deanna Santana

When Oaklanders elected Jean Quan, they got what they deserved. And as far as I'm aware, Oakland still has a strong Mayor government. Any executive decisions ultimately rest with the Mayor. Such as the decision to allow the Occupy camp to come back after it was first shut down by the police and cleared.

Oakland's politicians always look for and find scapegoats. They don't need the help of the East Bay media. Jean Quan has been on the council a long time, Her financial priorities, her Measure Y, her broken promises to the community, her political pandering to the African American community while on the school board (ebonics) and then in her campaign rap video utube, all speak for themselves.

Oakland is running on the financial fumes once again of a temporary real estate market boon thanks to the monthly transfusion of $80 billion into the banking world by the Bush Republican Bernanke. But under Quan's rule and that of her equally complicit Council, Oakland indebted itself to big Wall Street banks once again. And when the Piper comes calling, Oakland will pay. Oakland will crash financially once again--it's inevitable. The liberal politicians just want to ride it out as long as they came for their own political power and pensions in my opinion.

So glad I moved away from this miserably run city with citizens who don't care enough about sound financial management or have much political sense.
