Or is this the Gallo / Coto Driven Political Machine(Family) v. Gonzales (Family) Mayor Backed Political Machine. I have not Voted for Noel since his 1st D5 Term on the Oakland School Board in 1992. On the other side…My only image of Ms. Gonzales, is her picture high above D5, and the City, her appearance at the League of Women’s Candidates 2016, voter sites. It makes me feel that we do not need an “Overseer”, but also, Progress.
The Councilman should be allowed another Term, as change would be counterproductive to Progress. Mr Gallo needs to realize that the Youth is well covered (By Local School Boards) as are Women(Non-Profits). It is the collapse of the middle class and the truly disenfranchised, the Homeless, that is the largest burden the United States Faces going forward. 2 Issues that don’t change regardless of how much more money we print. Building Affordable housing at 10x the rate that Market Rate housing is built. Is… NOT Affordable. Oakland also has a bombshell coming as the Grossly underfunded $2Billion City Retirement Fund is headed for disaster.
The Financial support, for both candidates had almost as many Gonzales’ as Gallo’s & Coto’s. There is just an overwhelming abundance of Gallo’s donating to the campaign. I guess when your Father is so actively concerned with their housing… I thought after Cal, and Stanford educations, They should be able to take care of themselves… Need to get those High Schools to upgrade their Quality of Education. What say Cousin Rosie Torres?
In voting for other Candidates in the modern Political era… In 2016, I, as a “Deplorable”, must vote for the one who can do the least amount of damage. It is not responsible to vote for neither candidate, None of the Above, this Year.
There is not too much different from Ms Gonzales & Mr Gallo. But if you care about Oakland, East Oakland… D5. Get the Vote out. I see this election settled by the People in the Hills(unfortunately). In the Flats, I believe Today, would bring a Dead Heat between the Registered Voters. About 5,000 votes each. In 2012, A swing of 500 Votes would have made Mario Juarez the Incumbent this Year. It will be much closer this Time… Every Vote must be counted. Granted, there is less of a Choice. Gallo’s effort for Police Reform Legislation, supports 7-17-2010 Don’t Forget… More than adequately moved the needle for me, and due to fact that OPOA supported Ms Gonzales candidacy.
The Supreme Court does not agree. For them It’s Hypothetically OK for Multi International Super Pack to donate $$$ to American Election. Or a Union Leveraging an Election. In our little Oakland, the OPOA and SEIU should not be able to leverage the Election of; the very people that decide how much of the City Budget that they receive, are elected. While Legal, the common sense reality is far from Democratic in the results.
By .0000002%. Vote for Noel Gallo D5 Oakland, California.2016
