Re: “Oakland Police Commission Candidates Face Questions of Experience, Bias, and Conflicts

Chavez Yoell should recuse herself from these proceedings on Tagami being considered at all!

Re: “Oakland Fire Department Hits Hills Homeowners With Erroneous Inspection Bills

These inspections where voted down by the voters a few years ago and yet the City continuous to inspect. Instead of abiding by the majority vote and halting this program which in reality serves no real purpose! The City does not maintain the City owned public lands, EBRP does not maintain theirs, CalTrans, etc etc!!!

How soon we forget who allowed the fire which started the Firestorm to get out of hand due to lack of training and expertise! Same almost happened last year off Keller till public phone calls reminded the OFD that they should get their --- back up to the site and monitor it!

This is discriminatory in nature by the City and the Fire Department. It is time that a Property Owners Association be formed, to represent the property owners throughout Oakland, with an elected board that can then represent the facts, educate and give political clout to the ones the City sees fit to gauge consistently. Because Oakland can't get it's act together and attract sales tax base businesses to fill the coffers in a cash strapped government we, the property owners, are expected to pay and pay while the different city departments do nothing and Oakland is depicted as a city from the third world!

It is also time to revisit all the Property tax assessments that Oakland property owners have been asked to pay over these many years and yet receive no services in return. The City is in a mess and the Leadership has not a clue, yet keeps coming up with "new" programs that return nothing to the City but line pockets of a few at our expense!

Oakland needs to be audited by an outside agency to find out where all our monies are going! The Oakland Fire Department has been flush with money from the many grants and millions given from monies voted on my voters, believing that things will change! The fire department does the footwork by going door to door to sell the various Measures that have been on the ballot over the years and reap in a fine share of the proceeds as their reward!!

Re: “To Stop Fake News, Liberals and Progressives Need to Kick the Fake-Talk Habit

Not only the fake news but the lack of honest coverage of all candidates running for office ...Media needs to report the facts and the truth and stop acting lime they are the only entities in the know while not disclosing the facts and individuals and letting the readers and public draw their own conclusions!

One reporters opinion does not reflect the opinions of the whole! Biased coverage at the expense of full disclosure and (my favorite word) TRANSPARENCY does not the right to choose to the public!

Re: “Vote With Us! The East Bay Express' Endorsements for Election Day 2016

This has become a biased newspaper with little or no accountability. You are supposed to report the news and not take sides! You lie and say candidates where invited and come to find out you never invited them!!!! Your credibility needs to be addressed as well as the knowledge of your reporters on the subjects they claim to cover! People can actually think for themselves but you have taken it upon yourselves to think you are "know it all's" and you have proven that you are not! You owe public apologies to candidates that you have ignored and saw fit not to give your readers the "right" to know!!! Don't go covering transparency cause you don't know the meaning of the word!!!! Your rudeness and immaturity begs the question!

Re: “Oakland Coal Vote Days Away — But City Still Hasn’t Released Crucial Study

Claudia Cappio follows Jerry's orders...He wants the coal here and Claudia was put in place as the Assist. City Admin. to run that department and make it happen....Claudia is Jerry's designated liar and will say what he wants her to say.....Bets used to be taken by staff when she was head of CEDA as to what lies she would tell at council meetings to sell what ever projects that Jerry wanted pushed....Jerry is running Oakland for his developer buddies at the expense of the citizens of Oakland. Claudia Cappio knows exactly what she is doing and I can guarantee it is not for Oakland's benefit!

Re: “The Return of Don Perata?

The fact that you have an election this year and seats that Don and his Machine Type Politics has controlled for over 20+ years makes this move a slam dunk!!! Voters should be very concerned cause Oakland is controlled by both Jerry Brown and Don Perata...Neither can rely on the voters to keep their hand picked candidates in office...If the voters who continue to complain do not wake up in this election year....Oakland will continue it's downward spiral!
