Tweet Elihu Harris Former Mayor On Occupy Oakland Jean Quan and Oakland http://ift.tt/1h1Scqf ...

Tweet Coliseum City Oakland Gets Bay Investment Group: Rashid Al Malik, Colony Capital LLC – UPDATE The Oakland Raiders are the reported target of Ed Roski, according to another well-placed source with knowledge of the situation. That’s two sources who have confirmed that the Oakland Raiders are the focus of a buyer, and while that’s far different...

Tweet David Glover was one of the first mentors I had after I started work in the City of Oakland after grad school at Berkeley. I got the word the former Oakland Citizens Committee For Urban Renewal (OCCUR) Executive Director passed on Wednesday and at the young age of 60, after a battle with cancer he waged for quite a while. David is not someone you “remember,”...

Tweet Frankly, this should not be an issue, but Oaklanders living in District 7 should reelect Oakland’s long-time, legendary City Councilmember, and Council President Larry Reid. This blogger has known Larry since 1995, when he was then the chief-of-staff for then-Oakland Mayor Elihu Harris. Larry has always cared for those most in need in Oakland,...

Tweet Grrr. Oakland Tribune reporter Angela Woodall’s done it again: wrote another completely wrongheaded account of my Oakland. The first time it was a Twitter tweet that implied there was corruption at the Oakland Coliseum (she was correct), only to completely back away from the accusation when this blogger pointed to it. This time, the second time,...

Tweet The National Football League released the 2012 schedule, which includes that for the Oakland Raiders, on Tuesday. What’s interesting is, the Raiders Schedule doesn’t look much different than the one for 2011 or 2010 – all of them start with the Monday Night game against the San Diego Chargers at home at the Oakland Coliseum. (Just...

Tweet Magic Johnson finally did it. In 1997, while Economic Advisor To Elihu Harris when he was Mayor Of Oakland, this blogger was tasked with the work of finding a buyer for the Oakland Athletics. One of the buyer groups I put together consisted of Magic Johnson (who was represented by his then-agent Lon Rosen) and Frank Robinson. A deal that would have...

Tweet Oakland Mayor Jean Quan announced that today and next Saturday are “parking holidays” for Oakland. Personally, this is too little too late. When Elihu Harris was Oakland’s Mayor, the office had something called the “Shop Oakland” campaign, which started back in November, before Thanksgiving, and was a major, city-wide marketing...

Tweet Say what you will about Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, one thing’s for sure, she’s gone from being called ‘Mayor Quan,’ or ‘Oakland Mayor Jean Quan,’ to just ‘Jean Quan,’ and that means Quan’s become a national and international celebrity and at the same time her name’s a meme. This is one reason...

Tweet The news that Oakland Raiders Legend Chester McGlockton passed away this Wednesday morning at the age of 42 of a heart attack reached this blogger via Facebook just a moment ago. The first memory was of meeting Mr. McGlockton when he came to the Oakland Mayor’s Office in 1997, and then Oakland Mayor Elihu Harris invited me to join him in meeting...

Tweet For the many who never knew Oakland Mayor Lionel Wilson, who was Oakland’s last three-term Mayor, and its first African American Mayor, serving from 1977 to 1991, when he lost to Elihu Harris. During his time, Mayor Wilson was a tireless promoter of Oakland. The video below has Mayor Wilson making a video to announce the State Urban Economic Development...

Tweet Even though Elihu Harris hasn’t been the Mayor of Oakland since 1999 (and was Mayor between 1990 and 1999), he’s still a fixture in Oakland. Always willing to offer his points of view on various topics (even ones I elected not to include in our interview), Mayor Harris (or “Boss” as I still call him), sat down for 30 minutes on...
