Public Lands belong to the Public, this Non-Profit is not the Public.


-> Public Lands belong to the Public,

This Non Profit is not the Public… Everything said, there should not be a development

gratuity… that gratuity should also belong to the people. Oh, just don’t “Launder”(LOA*)

it in this non Profit, and it’s greedy associates. There are too many people on the Streets

of Oakland that need the services that money could provide.

A non Profit should not be able to price construction value above Market Value

in the area. It is bad practice for the people, this practice makes Regular Development

difficult… for a bona fide(profit oriented) Developer, they will incur these costs . These

poor quality, overpriced”projects”, hinder by lowering the price of a skilled quality

development in the market. You have to minimize the costs overruns to keep the

affordable housing affordable to the public. This Non Profit does nothing to protect the

public’s interest.

These massive administration costs prevent services from reaching the people those

grants were initially provided for. In this case they can’t even balance the books. It should

be as simple as we get $2.00, we spend $2.00. Overruns are non accountable waste of

Public Funds. When you have terrible accounting with such simple math… You must ask




*LOA = Lost in Administration




Reggie McKenzie… Sign Anquan Bolden

The Raiders could use his excellence and consistency to help
show the way to a Championship. It is akin to the Baltimore Ravens signing
Shannon Sharpe. He can play all WR positions when necessary. His playing
time works into a nice WR rotation for a long season.
When it’s Tough… Show ALL of Us how to be tougher than all the
Rest. I have always wanted this player on my football Team.

Davis Field @ Howard Terminal

Above… My $.02 where the Raiders Stadium is Oakland should be.

I have seen 200+ Raider Games since the beginning of Time(98% in last 21 Years)… I know Football in Oakland… I’ve lived it… I have invested fully in it. I am an original PSL holder.

I have this space…

How we can the City find money? Make recipients of Oakland Funding more self sufficient, make better Capital Investments. Like in the NFL & the Oakland Raiders.

Start by making places like this Non Profit more accountable…

Councilman Gallo on Tuesday’s Council item 15-0546, 4-05-2016



Comp FTV v CTV

Where I live is not worth 1/2 these, low-income Town houses / Apartments.


Urban Core LLc’s

$327,272.73 – If this were a 1000sq ‘ Apartment. $327 per sq ‘ is almost reasonable.

No wonder people are chaining themselves to walls & singing.

This is a bad deal for public.

>$500.00 per sq ‘ is outrageous. This applies to all mixed income projects.

I understand that there is a huge need for housing in Oakland… This is Irresponsible.

Thank You all in advance for your Time.

Councilman Gallo:

Dear Councilman Gallo,

  1. In 1979 we have acquaintance that committed one very poorly made choice… It has caused his incarceration since 1979. Since that Day whenhe was sentenced to 25~Life. He has done the 25, and is now working on his second Life Sentence. At 38(2017) Years he will complete the point in his life where he has been jailed for 2/3rd of his Life… Don’t you think this is too much. I do. You did nothing for that Kid, It was in the way of your career. I NEVER recall seeing you at all around him during that time…

At this point I do believe it is a starting to be a Violation of his Civil Rights. No one in 1979  spokeup for him. This incarceration at this point, may be Unconstitutional.

His Father was a Alcoholic, at which times he was a total A$$… Forcing that Kid on the streets at an early age(fact). By the Time He was 14 he was spending more than 1/2 of his time on the Streets. The end result was predictable. It should mitigated, the argument compelling, and it is REAL.

It is very difficult to “wrap my head around” the fact of the Crime involved… It was selfish, & stupid… One Family has a Loss that is irreplaceable. for which I hope they have found Peace. It’s overdue that he gets a chance at Freedom. Life without hope… Is worse than Dying.
