Re: “Pro-Tenant and Pro-Housing

The suggestion that Buffy Wicks is pro-tenant, and the repeating of the lie about Jovanka Beckles, might be funny under different circumstances. Unfortunately, AD-15 was purchased by a feckless corporate lackey who is going to use us as her springboard to higher office. Hopefully someone is getting ready to primary her in the next electoral cycle.

Hey, Mayor Schaaf's employees like Mayor Schaaf! What a shock!

Re: “Oakland Review Agency Exonerates Police Chief Over False Statements Regarding ICE Raid

How did Anthony Finnell become the CPRA Executive Director? Was he appointed to the position by the Mayor?

Re: “Assembly District 15 Candidates to Discuss Food and Farming Issues in the East Bay

A disappointing distraction that will do little to clarify or underscore the stark differences between these candidates. I hope there will also be debates about Costa-Hawkins and universal health care.

Re: “Opinion: We Must Stand for Choice

Buffy Wicks will do anything to protect Costa-Hawkins, including writing her own puff pieces that play well in soft left, middle or upper-class neighbourhoods. Anyone who rents should vote for Jovanka Beckles.

Re: “Oakland Housing Authority Residents Sue to Overturn Anti-Loitering Ordinance

I am deeply confused by the OHA's statement. Surely their property is public, not private? And how do they define the 'general public', who are not allowed to gather at the publicly-owned 'private' housing they maintain?

Re: “City of Oakland Plans to Ban Homeless from Camping Around Lake Merritt

Our homeless residents are the casualties of increasingly out of control capitalism, which is now eating its own in order to keep feeding the corporate bottom line. Housing should be a right, not a privilege, and we need a massive public housing program to alleviate this perpetually growing problem. Unfortunately, the preponderance of comments attached to this story suggest that even the 'liberal' Bay Area isn't interested in the kind of systemic change that's needed.
