Dellums Watch: Keeping Tabs on Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums

Because we care deeply about Oakland, we want Mayor Dellums to succeed. However, we strongly opposed his election because he never held a municipal position in Oakland and has lived in Washington for the last thirty-five years. We are wary of some of his supporters, and wish to keep a close eye on local political machinations. This blog will be focused on politics and people, not policy perscriptions (unlike FutureOakland).

Allison Neglects City Taxes

In today's San Francisco Chronicle, Matier & Ross attempt to answer the question that's on many Oaklanders' minds: what the hell does Aimee Allison do for a living (besides run for Council, that is)? They found that she had deactivated two business permits in the last six years, and hadn't paid the city any independent-contractor taxes for four years.

Is Oakland's favorite socialist a tax evader, in addition to sending her kid to private school? Personally, I don't think so. I think she doesn't actually have a business, and lives off of her book royalties and speaking fees (she also owns a rental unit). What small business would want her consulting services? Certainly not a nail salon.

In other news, Desley Brooks came to Oakland's rescue and tricked the Brunner-Quan coalition into taking IZ off the table without a vote. Good for her! The council meeting was dramatic. More Friday at FutureOakland.

I disagree with you on the IZ question, but there's no doubt that Allison has a problem here. It's hard to cry "corporate welfare to developers" when you're not putting up your fair share.

And if you didn;t know there was a Business Tax, you're an idiot and don't know enough to have read Step 1 in the "10 Steps To Setting Up A Business in Oakland" sheet any idiot can get from the city website.

I love how she said it was a "nonissue." I'm glad she thinks so.

Again, I think that this reveals that Allison doesn't actually work, not that she neglected her taxes. She HAD two businesses filed with the city (for which she was presumably paying taxes), but deactivated the last license in 2002. I don't think she deactivated her business because she wanted to avoid taxes, I think that she starting making enough money on the peacenik lecture circuit. Also, her small-business clients probably didn't like her "all profit is evil" attitude.

Well, that's an interesting question then. so does one actively "de-activiate" a license, or did she just stop paying and the City "de-activiated" them.

This is the 2nd example of flagrant violation of City law by Allison. Three times she's signed campaign documents testifying that she understands that City law clearly forbids the posting of campaign materials on public property, but the campaign continues to do so within sight of her campaign office.

It's SF and Berkeley politics come to Oakland: anything is permitted if you're a "progressive."

It will be good to have some green in Oakland. As Oakland is in a dire need of green.

hey - you didn't note that it was $180 total over two years (that's it) and that it was one of the most convoluted items in the Oakland tax code. I'm an independent contractor too and oversights are far from rare here. Not excusable (Im a kernigan supporter...) but you're really overstating things.

Also if you looked into the rest of her records (Oakland Native OBVIOUSLY didnt) she does make a living and she works ... I know three small business owners in District Two who like her and who she's done good work for.

this isnt good ... but check your facts

Alright, I'll take your word for it that Allison does consult for businesses. Given her strident opposition to most profit (she will be at yet another International Socialist Organization rally the day before the election) and her lack of a business-oriented education makes her vague "consultant" title somewhat dubious. It is also curious that she didn't trot out any clients to praise her in the media.

Somebody running for City Council should know what taxes Oakland collects. She DID pay her taxes for a period of time, so she can't claim she didn't know about it. Additionally, the city publicizes the independent-contractor tax quite extensively. The dollar amount isn't important, but it's not like she owed $7.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
