People & Diversity

People say you're the Brooklyn of the Bay Area, but when I look around I don't see nearly as many ironic handlebar mustaches, and for that I am grateful.

Arts & Culture

Dear Oakland,

There is so many hidden gems in Oakland, that I did not realize were hear. I have been living here for a year and since the first week I have been in love with this city, and the Culture surrounding it. People's self expression when going around Lake Merrit, great pieces of architecture. The melting pot of different cultures in the city make for great dining experiences.

Public Safety

Dear Oakland,

I've only lived here for a month, but I'm in love with your quirky and overlooked self. I look forward to the day when I can feel safe walking around at night.

Public Safety

Politics

I want more transparency from local officials on how are dollars are spent, allocated and projected to be spent.

Transportation
