Re: “After Contemplating Retirement, Oakland Councilmember Noel Gallo Says He’s Running for Reelection

You want to see the Oakland Raiders leave Oakland:
"I'm ready to kiss and say goodbye and help him pack his bags," councilman Noel Gallo told the Bay Are News Group.

Let's do this.Let's help you pack your bags and help you leave Oakland.You should be ashamed of yourself for making a comment like that.Not once has Mark Davis asked the city of Oakland for money for a new stadium and it's people like you who have ruined this city by not doing anything but collect a pay check.What have you done for this city?People like you are the real reason that people look down on Oakland cause idiots like you have no real vision or a future for what this city needs.The Raiders are a big reason why Oakland is on the map.Why don't you do the this.Why don't you leave and go to Santa Clara and become a councilman because you are a sorry excuse.

Re: “Activists Strongly Criticize Coliseum City Proposal

What this does is create jobs and it revitalizes that area.That area needs to be revitalized,period.There is a benefit to all of this for everyone and if these so called activist really cared then they should march the streets of Oakland and denounce the killings and crime activity a lot more then getting on a bull horn every now and then. I can say it cause I live here in East Oakland and that area needs a major overhaul.It would increase property value around that area for homeowners.Ask the activist this question?What vision do they have for that area?Oakland has no mall among other things.San Leandro and Alameda has a mall but not Oakland which I find very disturbing.I respect activist for their hard work and dedication but you have to draw the line and that area can't be a place for just low income people.I ran the streets of Oakland as a young man and seen many of my friends fall to violence.I was also a victim of violence so it was up to me as an individual to make a change in my life.I now have a career and a family that I love very much so I turned my life around.It was not easy so I had to work very hard to get where I am at.If I can go from hanging on street corners to having a respectable career then there is no excuse for the next person.In life we all have choices.
