Re: “Why the Oakland A’s Should Rethink the Laney College Site

I've rented in Eastlake for 5 years now, it was difficult to afford a place here then and continues to be difficult for new residents wanting to live or stay here. I can't imagine what it would turn into if there's a stadium literally down the street from me. I'm incredibly worried about what landlords and landowners would do. What would happen to the small businesses and families here that have invested their livelihoods in their communities - only to be outbid by billionaires and millionaires. I want to be able to buy a house here soon and we are close!!! I want to raise my kids in a place they remember from their childhood. It just doesn't make any sense to have a stadium here in a neighborhood next to schools and a freeway like that. I wasn't able to go to your one town hall at la estrellita. My daughter had her birthday there two years ago, loves the food. Can I promise her it'll still be there when the stadium opens? ***PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DONT COME TO EASTLAKE/SAN ANTONIO***
