Maybe that's partially what's wrong with Oakland government: They all turn a blind eye on the internal corruption that is Oakland. Maybe they can add Quan to the list.

Never, EVER let the City of Oakland use Ranked Choice Voting again to elect the Mayor. The clear number one choice for mayor last election was Don Perata, an intelligent former educator who would have made an effective mayor. Instead, we got stuck with Jean Quan as Oakland's mayor because of the Ranked Choice Voting system. She has proven herself incompetent to run the city, and has alienated herself from ALL OTHER city managers due to her lack of management skills. Oakland is paying dearly for having Quan as mayor. Several very competent city managers, including a police chief and city attorney resigned from office due to Quan's inability to grasp the seriousness of her ongoing errors, lack of common sense, and lack of respect toward employees who do not agree with her foolishness. Ranked Choice Voting and mayor Quan have destroyed the city.
