Ignacio De La Fuente Former Oakland Councilmember On Oakland A’s Howard Terminal, Blasts Mayor Libby Schaaf,

In a long and comprehensive interview with me, Zennie Abraham of Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now, Ignacio De La Fuente, once the Oakland City Council President and Boss of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, blasted her over how she has handled the matter of the Howard Terminal Ballpark Project.

“I am disappointed in Libby”, former District Five Rep De La Fuente said, and regarding the events that have led to the team seeking a new ballpark home in Las Vegas. “She didn’t call me. She did not listen to me, ” he said. “I don;t know if she listens to anybody.”

The process has been marked with errors from the start, and going back to a dead zone of contact after the series of bills to build the ballpark passed the California Legislature in 2019. There was nothing done regarding negotiations or preparation to use tax increment financing, yet that intent was the reason SB 293 Skinner was passed.

Rather, when Major League Baseball expressed concern about the lack of overall progress back in late March of 2021, the City then started talks with Alameda County.

Overall, Ignacio De La Fuente remarked that Oakland was a mess, and is considering running for Mayor of Oakland himself for 2022.

Stay tuned.
