Oakland City Council Leadership Sends Nasty Letter To MLB Commissioner On Oakland A’s Ballpark

This letter was sent to Zennie62Media by Oakland City Council At-Large Representative And Vice Mayor Rebecca Kaplan

It reads as follows:

Oakland City Council Leadership Writes to Major League Baseball;
I Submitted A Scheduling Action for Term Sheet

On Friday, May 14, 2021, the leadership of the Oakland City Council wrote to the head of Major League Baseball to seek effective communication and next steps to build a strong and healthy future with Athletics in Oakland. The letter was signed by Council President Nikki Fortunato Bas, Councilmember Carroll Fife who represents downtown and West Oakland, and I, the at-large Councilmember & Vice Mayor.

The letter to the MLB begins: “As leadership of the City Council and representatives of the West Oakland, Downtown and Chinatown neighborhoods, and the City at-large, we are ready to meet with you and with the A’s ownership — as we offered previously — and to thoughtfully move forward.

From MLB’s statement, there appears to be incorrect information being conveyed. We want to make clear that it is entirely false that the City Council is delaying or refusing to consider the A’s project proposal.”

I have also submitted a scheduling item to bring forward to the City Council, a Resolution for a Term Sheet with the Oakland Athletics. The Scheduling request can be found at:


In solidarity,

Rebecca Kaplan
Oakland Vice Mayor

Zennie Abraham’s response: the letter Rebecca presents is not one I would have sent to Commissioner Manfred. It starts out nice, but shifts midway and ends with a nasty tone. There are also grammatical errors which indicate it was not read out-loud before it was sent. And it fails to mention Mayor Schaaf. In all, an embarrassing display of bad judgment in leadership.

In solidarity,

Rebecca Kaplan
Oakland Vice Mayor


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.
