I am an Oakland native who is absolutely incensed by the candidacy of Ron Dellums for Oakland mayor. As a politican-turned-lobbyist he has not lived in Oakland for almost thirty years and is completely out of touch with the city as it is today. From engineering the special election of his chief of staff to his old seat, to his hypocritical embrace of "change" while collecting money from Elihu Harris's cronies and the city employee unions, this man has no respect for the electorate or any grasp of the very real issues facing the great City of Oakland.
This blog will be dedicated to uncovering the real, and wrong-headed, positions behind his lofty rhetoric.
