Letters for August 6 

You want us to let Jesus into our hearts, you don't trust Chevron or Children's Hospital of Oakland, and you're sick of warrantless searches, development in Alameda, diesel trucks, Oakland cops, and UC Berkeley libraries.

I propose that the citizens of Oakland ask Councilman Larry Reid, who chairs the public safety committee, to introduce legislation, which awards any applicant for a police job who is a longtime resident of Oakland a twenty point preference. Such legislation would go a long way toward employing those who have a proven interest in the well-being of Oakland. Mr. Reid can be reached at 510-238-7007.

Joe Dobro, Oakland
