Re: “Setting the Record Straight About Oakland

Hobart,

The violence that the exists in certain Oakland neighborhoods is the same violence that is present in neighborhoods in San Francisco, New York City, Baltimore, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, etc. The point you are missing, is the nature of the crime reporting. This one dimensional media coverage is what cripples Oakland's tax base.

In recent years, Oakland has gained national and international attention as a place to visit, invest, play, work, and live. Today, Oakland can fund more police academies because of increased tax revenue generated from new businesses, new residents, and increased tourism and hotel activity.

Fear mongering Oakland only deters businesses from starting up or relocating here; families from moving here; and tourists from visiting here. That's impeding our productive tax base, which prevents us from allocating the much needed resources to libraries, schools, police academies, etc.
