David Silver Not Double Dipping Says Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf called to come to the defense of David Silver, her Director of Education and builder of the Oakland Promise program. Mayor Schaaf made three points. Contrary to the assertion of critics like Oakland activist Gene Hazzard, Oakland Promise wasn’t an idea that started with her run for Mayor in 2014, but it really has its origins in fundraising programs she has been involved in. Libby said that my identification of “Oakland Cares” was a perfect example of that work on her part. I called Oakland Promise the modern variant of Oakland Cares. 1. David Silver never “double-dipped” - his total annual salary in 2016 was $155K (not $292K). In 2016, his salary was originally funded entirely by philanthropy: he received $137K from Ed Fund (fiscal agent for Director of Education role) for working 10.5 months Jan-mid-Nov), and after the City Council passed a resolution to accept a grant that would allow the Director of Education to be a city employee in November 2016, he received the rest of his salary, $17,884.75, from the city for working 1.5 months (mid-Nov-Dec, which is the difference between $155K-$137K). 2. In addition, his 2018 salary was not $261K, thx for correcting that, (which was his total compensation that includes benefits at a % typical of all city employees) when the actual salary received was $161,097,96 (Note: Transparent California + W-2s from the City of Oakland Payroll confirms the corrected numbers) 3. David Silver’s actual annual salary is significantly lower than the city admin and ousd superintendent Additionally, Mayor Schaaf informed this vlogger that Oakland Promise has raised a total of $61 million to date. There are 1,400 scholarship student and they’re working to add more. For the future of Oakland Promise, Mayor Schaaf says it will last long beyond her final term as Mayor of Oakland. And also she believes the next step should be a state-wide initiative to establish “California Promise”. Stay tuned.
