Re: “Cops Charging Overtime to Clubs

Dear Mr. Gammon,

First, thank you for your attempts to report fairly on this important issue. I would like to respond to some of the nonsensical assertions in the letters of response: 1) One unsigned person maintains that Geoffrey received "special treatment" from then-Mayor Dellums. Perhaps that individual could explain what kind of "favor" Mr. Pete was receiving when his club was forced our of business by OPD while Dellums was in office The fact is that Mr. Pete, an honorable and thoughtful person, did not ask for assistance from the mayor on this matter, although the whole ordeal clearly cost him greatly, both financially and personally 2. The same individual uses the term "pompous" in relation to Mr. Pete, causing me to wonder what distant suburb the writer lives in. Geoffrey is a hero to many in this community. He organizes to feed the hungry people in Oakland almost EVERY holiday of the year. And he speaks up on issues like on-going discrimination in hiring and contracting which most people are afraid to touch.

Thank you, Mr. Pete and Mr. Gammon, for shedding light on some non-progressive realities in this progressive city.
