Is it necessary to RSVP? There is probably more than one person in Oakland who is interested in the problems who does not do facebook.
Yes, there is more than one person who does not “like” Facebook but who will attend the meeting. Since Oakland has this “multiple choice” (read Musical Chairs) system of voting (the worst idea ever!) and since about 8 people always run for the mayor’s office, it is a foregone conclusion that not one of them will EVER get 51% of the votes! This ballot system is how we got our current incompetent mayor. How about restricting the number of candidates to 2 or at most 3 (the first three to qualify to register)? Or changing the ballot back to something more rational and predictable?
There’s a “great” idea ” the first two or three to qualify to register”
The co-sponsor of this “debate” by the way is MGO, Oakland’s “Democratic Club,” whose main claim-to-political action in recent years was the musical chairs voting system.
Apparently one does need to RSVP to get a ticket to go to the “debate.” You can avoid Facebook by going to the MGO website which has a link to an online reservation site which will grant you your ticket to an enlightening evening moderated by those hard-nosed critical thinkers Gob Bammon and Jip Chonson.

Any chance the debate will be televised on public access channel?
Two comments: RSVP’s are much appreciated because it helps us plan. They are not required. Second, the only public access channel is KTOP, and the advise they an only broadcast from City Hall. We’re trying to make arrangements to live stream on line, however, and will announce if we are successful. If we can’t do that, at a minimum we plan to post video of the event.
Rather, because THEY help us plan.
