ONN – Rebecca Kaplan Oakland Councilmember Presents Ideas To Generate Budget Revenue – On Twitter – vlog by Zennie62 YouTube
Oakland City Council President Rebecca Kaplan presented this text on Twitter about 35 minutes ago to this point:
Closing the budget gap requires admitting the biggest cause of it: un-budgeted police over-spending. And pushing implementation of solutions, including ones Council has already passed; requirements to track and control over-spending; move special events etc out of police dept.
And we do need revenue. Some fought putting on ballot our proposal to have billionaire corporations like Uber and Lyft remit taxes. Yet TNC tax passed in Berkeley, & big corp$ failed in local races. We must close tax loopholes. And to revise TOT tax, deal with medium-term uses.
Make it easier to add uses like housing/ADUs, & to open local businesses. Revise zoning to expand use for vacant spaces, and expansion of housing and more on transit corridors. Streamline permitting, add hours of operation, add pre-approved templates for ADUs and small projects.
Oakland Councilmember Kaplan Must Explain Economic Impact Of Ideas
The problem here is that there’s zero staff analysis called for to determine how many businesses will leave Oakland or small businesses closed with these tax loopholes. This is really just sloppy thinking that is not sensitive to the times we live in. Rebecca, do better. Oakland do better.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: 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.
