Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf Institutes Ban On Nighttime Street Protests

Last time I checked, protesting peacefully whether in the daylight or at nighttime is a constitutional right. I question the legality of such a curfew.

Re: “Oakland Apartment Tower Deal May Be Illegal

Amazing that the City's backroom deal with a developer who's already in hot water with the city of San Francisco for failing to pay back the city not only goes against Oakland's "stated' affordable housing aims but may be against the law.
It may be hella time for leadership in Oakland but it sounds like business as usual at city hall.

Re: “Asian Seniors Misled About Lake Merritt Luxury Tower

Misleading tactics by those invested in processes where a lot of money is at stake, is not surprising. The fact that the city does not (or did not in this case) provide translators at public meetings where development of a public parcel impacts a community that is largely Asian and monolingual is either tone deaf or a sly oversight. With city coffers standing to gain more than 5 million dollars in the sale (which some believe is too little a price for this land) and some members of the planning commission with stakes in the matter, I wonder. Having lived in San Francisco for 10 years and being forced out by high rents, gentrification and the dot com bubble, this all sounds mighty familiar.

Re: “Replacing Pat Kernighan

Both Guillen and King are recent transplants to District 2. Park's connections to the community are longstanding and so he more closely understands neighborhood needs and concerns. Many people already see Park as a leader and representative of the community. They trust him.
