Laney College Oakland Mayor's Race Debate April 30th Has Issues

The Laney College Oakland Mayor's Race Debate that's currently set for April 30th, has some issues. Sources tell this blogger that the effort was originally to be ran by Laney College students, but there's tension between those persons and Elñora Tena Webb, the school's president.

That's all I know now, other than that an Oakland Mayor's Race new-comer and unknown Charles Williams has said he will attend the debate. Joining him, so far, are Libby Schaaf, Bryan Parker and Courtney Ruby.

If the Laney College Oakland Mayor's Race Debate can't get it's act together, the date should be pushed back.

Elñora Tena Webb Needs Support From Abel Guillen

It's also reported that Elñora Tena Webb is the focus of an effort to oust her, and that some Peralta College Board Members (like  Abel Guillen according to my source) are turning their backs on retaining her.

Abel?  My friends are calling you out, my friend....

Still getting more info on this. I wonder if her pursue of a new job last May was a sign that a problem's upon us? See:
Stay tuned.

Oakland Mayor's Race: LWV Forum Draws Oakland's Older Folks

Oakland Mayor's Race Forum first take. (Which means, there's going to be more of these posts on last night, because a lot was happening.) This just in: The Oakland Tribune's out of touch with Oakland. A number of attendees of the 450 estimated said they learned of the Oakland League Of Women Voters via "the newspaper." All of the people who made that statement were over 50 years old. Still, the forum, which attracted every candidate except Dr. Terrance Candell, was a success. The auditorium at 300 Lakeside Drive seats 380 people, so if you do the math, it was about 70 over capacity.

The one complaint they had was there wasn't enough time to hear what the candidates were about. That wasn't because there were too many candidates, but due to the format. Either Oakland Tribune Editor Martin Reynolds or the League of Women Voter
