Mayor Jean Quan at the Oakland Running Festival earlier this year.
Back in January 2011, we asked you to share you views on what you'd like our new Mayor, Jean Quan, to focus on in the coming year.
Here we are almost 12 months later, living in an Oakland that still has high unemployment, high crime (though some are dropping) and a school system that is struggling to do better for youth. Now, in the shadow of the Occupy Oakland movement and what looks like it is turning into a turf battle for who controls public space such as Frank Ogawa Plaza, we'd like you to revisit the questions we asked you last January and have you share your views.
The survey is short, and there's a place to share your opinions. Please take a moment to fill it out - and help us see what's changed ... and what's stayed the same.
