Re: “Pest to the Powerful

Recently, i submitted a photograph to KTVUnews via the MyKTVU site. I gave myself the name Solace if you can't find the picture. What needs to be brought out into the light is that the city's lack of enforcement of many, many ordinances is most obvious in district #2. This area is owned by a small consortium of real FAT-cats who have been at the city spigots forEVER. Cochran, Silvera and a new face, Terra nomics continue to reap huge benefits via Rents, insurance claims to rebuild burned down property and of course, via Ray's Electric.

What one picture, as I have indicated, will illustrate is that deference is clearly being paid to a specific cliche, who have already taken over the remnants of the business corridor along International and 23rd Ave and have every intention of getting subsidized further indefinitely, while they ignore what this imported class of renters is doing to infrasructure.

What they propose is not only blantantly vicious, but ridiculously unfair to everyone in the Grand Lake area,, flies in the face of all common sense and represents a further insult to the Real people of Oakland. They are robbiing everyone and enriching an already gluttonous faction of absentee owners. District 2 is their cash-cow.

Recalling the entire city council would be a great leap forward.
