Different Views: Oakland Mayor Jean Quan State Of The City Address



The Oakland State Of The City Address by Oakland Mayor Jean Quan was too long. Mayor Quan tried to make sure she mentioned everything - every part of Oakland from good news like the 5,000 new jobs last year, to revenue growth.

Oakland Councilmember Libby Schaaf (District Four) said that she was happy that the Mayor was more inclusive in her speech, but Quan failed to give the Council credit for it's role in many of the improvements in public safety she talked about.

New Councilmember Lynette Gibson McElhaney was more complementary of the Mayor, and said that she talked about the wineries and other businesses that made Oakland more fun to live in. Let's give Lynette a year and hear what she says in 2014; I'll bet she's more critical after a year at the helm in her district
.

Stay tuned.
