Re: “A Look at Who is Financing Oakland City Council Candidates

I've lived in Oakland for 30 years and seen its ebb and flow.

Re: “A Look at Who is Financing Oakland City Council Candidates

Delsey Brooks certainly fits the model of the "good old boys" network that undermines the honest work of people like former mayor, Jean Quan whose quiet determination supported the revitalize areas like the Laurel and Dimond districts. Libby Schaaf now wants to take credit while insinuating herself into the GOBN.

Re: “A Look at Who is Financing Oakland City Council Candidates

A look at Larry Reid's donors explains who he is really representing-- developers, contractors, and other business interests. As an unfortunate long time constituent, I've seen little support or interest in us. He fails to respond to requests for traffic calming measures, crime and safety issues, and addressing urban blight caused by illegal dumping. Calls to his office are ignored or dismissed. People in our district must vote this career politician out of office!

Re: “When Meaningful Work Means Healthy Food

I hired Planting Justice to repair my irrigation system last summer and was pleased with the quality of work an the demeanor of the workers. We need more organizations like this to fight the tide of poverty!
