Re: “Oakland Council Is Making a Mistake

This hotel-room tax bill is good for Oakland !

Oakland hotels are already the most affordable in the Bay Area. This is a small increase and will not hurt business, in fact it will help. The revenues from this tax bill will be given to the organizations that can in fact generate more visitors, more jobs,and supports Oakland's cultural institutions. This is a new source of revenue that will not cost the residents or the city and will enhance the overall quality of life for everyone living in Oakland. Oakland needs to market itself like other cities in order to attract more visitors, more business opportunities and more investment. This bill has the opportunity to stimulate the economy at a time when we need it the most.

This is a win-win for everyone - good for the arts, good for business, good for the cultural institutions, good for the residence, good for the 10,000 hospitality employees living and working in Oakland.
