Re: “Rebecca Kaplan Wins Mayoral Debate

So how many of you have been to other forums where the "star" Rebecca Kaplan spoke? I have and others I work with have been to more than I have. Rebecca has memorized her lines well and delivers them exactly the same each time. A really good trait in actors, not so much as policy makers and executives.
Got to say I have some bias. Jean Quan has been my council member for the last 8 years. I've lived in Oakland (Montclair, a part of the city) since 1993 and in the Bay Area since 1982. The Montclair Village commercial district has seemed to steadily improve, and even now, when every part of the city has been hammered by the collapse of Wall Street and the housing bubble, there are only a few gaps in the Montclair Village shopscape. But, what’s even more remarkable has been the transformation of the Dimond and Laurel districts in the last few years. They are part of Jean’s district also. When I moved here, they were pretty grim places. Places to avoid or get through as quickly as possible. Not anymore. Jean had a lot to do with it. She has represented ALL of her district, not just the hills neighborhoods. Think about that when you fill out your ballot.
