Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

Jamaal,
Please read the City Charter banning the Clerk from closed session is illegal and the Clerk does not under the City Administrator aurhority. The Clerk works for the Council. Council is the only body that can legally hire/fire the City Clerk. The meeting at the City open/closed are Council meetings not administration meeting. The Administrator is simply staff in those meetings. Lastly, just because someone has a degree doesn't make them smart or correct. It appears there is something personal going on between the City Administrator and the City Clerk. It should not however have an impact on the Clerk performing the duties outlined in the Charter.

It's obvious you don't know the City Clerk she is one of the most respected Clerks in her profession. Jamaal, we're you working @ the City and have direct knowledge of why the prior Clerk left. If not don't spend rumors.

Re: “Survivor, Oakland City Hall: Power Struggle Led to Expulsion of City Clerk from Closed Session

I don't understand how the City Attorney could come up with another conclusion. Read the Charter. East Bay express read the Charter. The problem with the City is that no one wants to follow the rules. I have no idea what issues the City Administrator had with the Clerk,it should not however prevent the Clerk from the performance of there official duties.

According to the City Charter the City Clerk is the Clerk of the Council and the keeper of all official City records. The Clerk does not report to the City Administrator. The Council doesn't need a resolution to include the City Clerk because the City Administrator had no authority to exclude the Clerk.
