Oakland Mayor Jean Quan Blows It At 100-Blocks Press Conference



Oakland Mayor Jean Quan returned from a trip to Brazil and in general a number of travel obligations that kept her out of Oakland far more than she was in it over the last five months, and to a swarm of controversy about her 100-blocks initiative that, on Wednesday June 27th at 2 PM, degenerated into the most disastrous press conference this blogger has ever seen in Oakland's mayoral history.

I've been involved in Oakland politics in depth and either as columnist, Mayor's Aide, consultant, or video-blogger, since 1990, and through Mayor Lionel Wilson, Elihu Harris, Jerry Brown, Ron Dellums, and Jean Quan, and this presser - which included City of Oakland Chief Administrative Officer Deanna Santana, Assistant Chief Of Police Anthony Toribio, Mayor Quan's Senior Public Safety Advisor Megan Harmon, and Robert Batty of the consulting firm Forensic Logic (who's website is in "stealth mode" as of this writing) - by Quan was the worst I've ever seen - nothing comes a close second.
