City attorney candidates Barbara Parker and Jane Brunner have responded to MOBN!’s questionnaire, answering critical questions for our city involving the Negotiated Settlement Agreement, functioning and funding of the city attorneys’ office, ethics, public records, non-interference and lobbying regulation. All of the questions and answers are posted at the MOBN! web site. We urge Oaklanders to take the time to:
- Read the candidate responses; and
- Give us your views no later than Saturday, July 21.
On July 24, the MOBN! board will consider whether to make an endorsement for this race, so please give us your thoughts by commenting on this post or on our page on facebook or by sending us an e-mail, Oaklanders@makeoaklandbetternow.org. MOBN! will announce the board’s decision no later than Friday, July 27.
Nothing empowers Oakland voters more than information—we hope Oaklanders will find these questions and answers a good first step toward empowerment.
