Oakland Mayor's Race: Video Interviews With All 10 Candidates
They comprise over 300 minutes of conversations and 15 videos that in total make up the most ambitious video blog effort I've ever done. The idea was to give you a view of all of the candidates, not just some of them. (That effort's the biggest example of local print and television media prejudice and attempt to control information I've ever seen. And if someone calls them by a name that brings up Nazi Germany, they'll start whining and crying, but at this stage, given their antics, I don't care what they think.)
So in honor of The San Francisco Giants as World Champions and Tim Lincecum, this blogger says FUCK YEAH! (OK. Lots of San Francisco street party hoping and killer videos in celebration last night, but I digress.)
The videos represents all of the candidates: Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Joe Tuman, Don Macleay, Don Perata, Councilmember Jean Quan, Larry Lionel Young, Arnie Fields, Marcie Hodge, Terrance Candell, and Greg Harland. Plus, there' are two forum overview videos and one commentary on the Sierra Club forum when it was messed up, trying to segregate candidates from attending. (Thank God that was corrected.)
The video playlist below has all of the candidates video interviews. The order does not indicate who this blogger endorses for Mayor of Oakland:
I will also post summaries of interviews conducted last week, and my recommendations, before 12 noon PDT.
