ONN – Oakland Measure AA Should Be Redone Not Forced On Taxpayers
The City Of Oakland, lead by the 50th Mayor of Oakland Libby Schaaf, advanced a 2018 Election ballot measure called Measure AA that, if passed, would have put a $198 tax on property owners. It needed 66.67 percent of the vote by California State Law.
It got 62 percent of the Oakland vote.
Then on December 11th 2018, the Oakland City Council that was outgoing – some were not returning either via election loss or not running again – voted to enforce the tax anyway. Well, that is wrong. It’s not what past City leaders have done in Oakland.
They would admit defeat and go back to the drawing board.
That is what this Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf should do.
If the tax were to end homelessness – as discussed in the upcoming documentary Sheltered Mercy – the tax would have gotten 80 percent of the vote.
Maybe that’s what the Mayor of Oakland should try?
