Re: “Kaplan, Quan, and Tuman for Oakland Mayor

Jean Quan may have done a great job in helping to clean up MacArthur, but I'd no more vote for her to be mayor than I'd hire my handyman to build a house. Rebecca Kaplan has some good ideas, but I'm concerned she'd get too sidetracked with non-essential issues (really, Rebecca? we need community gardens right now? really?). Tuman, however, is a solid candidate.....and I'm NOT implying he is merely the lesser of evils. He has articulated solid,thoughtful and innovative approaches to complex problems, and brings a fresh perspective developed over years of studying Oakland politics and governmental structures in general. I truly think he offers the best chance for a city that is clearly on the brink.
