Howard Terminal: Livestream On Oakland City Council Consideration Of Call For Public Vote. Will the Oakland City Council vote for this and trigger the A’s departure to Las Vegas?

The Agenda item reads:

Subject: Proposed Ballot Measure On Public Spending On Oakland A’s Project At
Howard Terminal
From: Councilmember Gallo
Recommendation: Adopt A Resolution On The City Council’s Own Motion Submitting To The Voters At The November 8, 2022, General Municipal Election An Advisory Measure On Spending Public Funds For Infrastructure And Other Costs Related To The Development Of The Oakland Athletics’ Proposed Baseball Stadium And Real Estate Project At The Howard Terminal

The attached legislation is here:

The attached legislation proves that the City of Oakland does not understand Howard Terminal. The “Cost Benefit Analysis Of Financial Issues” is slanted. It calls for the sale of City Bonds when City Bonds are not called for. It has a large set of assumptions that were advanced months ago, and never jettisoned. For example, it mentions on-site infrastructure but fails to add that EIDF law allows for TIF revenue to be used for projects of community-wide significance. Thus, each Councilmember should have a list of such projects for their district, but do not.

With all of that, and more, the City Council is still going to take up this bad idea and chase the A’s to Las Vegas if they approve it at 3 PM today. – when the City Council Meeting Starts.

Stay tuned.


Note from Oakland News Now Blog, Zennie62 YouTube, and Zennie62Media: this Oakland News Online Blog video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018, originally on Zennie62Media , Inc.’s Oakland News Now. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. This is what we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a “liked” YouTube video by a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then that YouTube video is uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Online Blog site and Zennie62Media -created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, thus less chance for Oakland News Online Blog, Zennie62 YouTube vloggers to be robbed. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners. This process is entirely within YouTube terms of service, where embedding of videos for use on websites and platforms is allowed and encouraged.
