Re: “Oakland Develops New Approach to Fixing Dangerous Intersections Faster

Mr. Johnson -- you're right that many neighborhoods across Oakland could benefit from similar treatment. OakDOT has road safety projects in the works across the city, including the area of 8th and Fallon streets in West Oakland, Fruitvale Avenue in the Fruitvale district, the BRT project connecting East Oakland to the Lake Merritt area, and both 69th Avenue and 98th Avenue in East Oakland. We will be making additional announcements as those projects produce results in the coming weeks and months. More to come!

--Sean Maher, OakDOT

Re: “Thursday Must Reads: Oakland Budget Battles Heat Up; Mayor Quan’s Chief of Staff Appointed to School Board

For the record: it's not necessarily the budget that "will ultimately determine" whether employees get raises. Mayor Quan's proposal to the Council is that they leave some flexibility in the budget, to allow the City's negotiating team to seriously consider employee compensation issues at the bargaining table. We can have both: a big investment in public safety AND a fair contract.

If we respect the collective bargaining process, we can avoid pitting employees' compensation against public safety funding. Setting aside some funds to let the City bargain in good faith is the best way to do it.
