ONN – City Of Oakland Plans Parks & Rec Employee Cuts After Voters Approve Measure Q

Sad news: according to a well-placed news source, the City of Oakland plans to cut Parks and Recreation Department staff, after voters approved the controversial Measure Q parcel tax.

The move comes as the City of Oakland scrambles to adjust to the dramatic revenue shortfalls expected due to the Coronavirus. But the question this vlogger has is why cut staff, rather than have an across-the-board 20 percent budget cut for all salaries (including elected officials) and eliminate any non-essential reserves?

City of Oakland Budget Reserves are not pockets of money laying around, but reflect specific projects. An economic development effort involving a neighborhood business retention plan, for example. The City of Oakland should comb through the reverses and lop-off those not truly needed now.

Parks and Recreation monies and staff are needed and should be guarded, at this time. The homeless population has altered the importance of the department. Now, it maintains what have become living places in Oakland.

Stay tuned.

Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this 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. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-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. 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.
