Some Oakland related items today.

Prayers for a just resolution to the current OUSD teacher’s strike. The work of  teachers is very hard. Let us trust that a contract commensurate with their skill and caring will be reached.

Debra Israel, Councilmember Nikki Furtunato Bas’ community aide, sent me this invite to the District 2 Budget Town Hall asking if there will be some LABC members in attendance. If you can represent us please sign-up and please let me know that you have done so.


I am supportive of the efforts of No Coal in Oakland which is working to prevent the development of a coal shipping facility at the Port of Oakland.  Such a facility would be very detrimental to the quality of the air we breath, particularly the air those near the rail lines and the proposed terminal would breath. The linked letter is a need response to the efforts of the financial interests that are not giving up even though the community has been clear that a coal facility is not wanted in Oakland
