Re: “BREAKING NEWS: City of Oakland Finally Obeys Law; Offers Publicly Owned East 12th St. Land to Affordable Housing Developers

I think this decision sets a bad image to other developers wanting to invest in Oakland. I do support developing affordable housing in Oakland. However, for the last 20 years, Oakland has developed more affordable housing than the rest of cities in Alameda County combined. Oakland has to make sure it attracts a proportionate share affluent residents. You need affluent residents to help Oakland attract new businesses and to increase its tax base. The increase in tax base would go a long way toward providing additional funding for the city's needs. You don't want Oakland to just be a haven for low income residents. You need affluent residents too.
