The vehicle code clearly states you must immediately provide the other driver your insurance info when involved in a crash. Apparently Mayor Quan refused to do so, saying it was a. city car. It does not matter if it is a city car. Quan was mandated to provide the other driver the city insurance info and she refused to do so. Why is this incompetent boob still mayor?

Another victim shot at Lowell Park last night. I wonder if Mayor Quan even knows how many people have been shot this year? 46 confirmed murders and I would bet at least triple that amount have been shot and survived. Quan has been a total failure on reducing violent crime in Oakland.

It was a total of 4 shot yesterday in Oakland. Change in Oakland must start from the top, and that would be the mayor. Jean Quan has repeatedly proven herself unfit for the task. The new mayor must have a clear and focused vision for turning this city around. Unfortunately for Oakland, Quan is neither focused nor envisioned. She has proven herself to be a liar and disorganized disaster with no vision. She blames others for her mistakes and takes no accountability for her horrendous tenure as mayor.

Interesting article in the Oakland Tribune about our liar of a mayor:

"The incumbent, who is running for a second term, has a history of giving incomplete, misleading or just plain wrong information to the public, which has called her credibility into question on a number of occasions. After her traffic accident, Quan said she did not believe she had run a red light. Most of us know when we hit the intersection whether the light is green, yellow or red.

Unless we are distracted by, a cellphone, say, which the mayor says she wasn't. When KRON-TV Channel 4 aired footage of Quan driving and talking on her cell, she said she would do her best to remember to use a hands-free device in the future. Then she accused reporters of following her. Yep, it was definitely the paparazzi's fault.

"She started to parse her language, which raised more questions than she needed to," says Corey Cook, a political science professor at the University of San Francisco.

"It's the standard critique of her since she has been elected. She doesn't accept responsibility."

Remember the incorrect crime data that Quan put out when she unveiled her "100-block" crime plan? As it turned out, the killings were far more dispersed than she had indicated. Or when Oakland police forcibly removed Occupy Oakland protesters from City Hall plaza? Quan said that she had been out of town and had not been involved in making the controversial decision. How about the mayor's erroneous claim during a radio interview that the crown prince of Dubai was going to help develop the city's proposed "Coliseum City" entertainment complex?

"She has not been able to put forward a message of competence," says David McCuan, a political science professor at Sonoma State who follows Oakland politics."

Please remember all the damage, unnecessary drama, and mistakes Quan has subjected Oakland to when it comes election time. Quan is incompetent at best, and possibly criminally negligent at worst.

Man, this Mayor Quan must be out of her mind. Why the hell would the Prince of Dubai give a rat's arse about Oakland? And does this Quan really believe she can tell that kinda lie and get away with it? Sounds like your mayor may need some psych meds if she is that far out in LaLa Land.

With all the violence, urban blight, drugs, poor parenting, and filth in Oakland, what does our infamous mayor post on FB:

"Blues and barbecue blowout" and "Funk and Latin Dance Party".

Not a post about ways to rebuild Oakland. All Quan wants to do is have a good time, lie about the facts and misdeeds of her administration, and blame others for her mistakes.

She loves to use her phone while driving, gets in vehicle accidents, and blames others. Can you believe her city vehicle is a very expensive Lexus SUV!

She just doesn't get it. She should lead, drive her own damn car, quit partying so much, and just get the job done! But alas, she seems unwilling and unprepared to do so.

Quan's latest FaceBook post:

"Join me at Oakland's largest annual festival, Art and Soul 2014, August 2nd & 3rd. See the link below for event details including performance line-ups, a BBQ Contest, Latin Jazz on Sunday, featured vendors and more!"

Another party Quan is attending. When does Quan have time to actually be a real mayor?

So our infamous Mayor Quan totaled a city vehicle in a car crash. Not just any car, but a LEXUS SUV! Since when are Lexus' on the city's fleet? Kind of extravagant considering how much trouble Oakland's budget has been in. Now Quan says she will have a city staffer drive her about town. Do we really need our tax dollars used for a city employee to drive the mayor about because she simply can't put her phone down while driving? This incompetence must stop in November. Please remember all the trouble Jean Quan has caused the city during her miserable tenure as mayor. Vote her out!

More news about corrupt Jean Quan:

"The campaign to re-elect Oakland Mayor Jean Quan sent letters to city employees at their official city e-mail accounts on Tuesday, informing them of political events and linking them to the mayor's re-election site, which solicits campaign donations.

The move, ethics experts say, is improper not only because it involves the use of city resources such as e-mail addresses to publicize campaign events, but because employees who received the letters may feel that their jobs could be at risk if they do not participate in the mayor's re-election activities."

Make Quan pay, vote her OUT!

I read your post about incompetent Quan. This is the latest article on her bumbling staff. They are once again back tracking from a very bad decision. That's the story of Quan's career, continual back tracking from ignorant mistakes. Here's the article:

"Oakland Mayor Jean Quan's re-election campaign, under fire for sending political e-mails this week to city employees on their municipal accounts, began removing those e-mail accounts from their distribution lists on Wednesday, a campaign spokesman said.

The action followed The Chronicle's report Wednesday that Quan's campaign was sending political e-mails to city employees at their official city accounts - a practice that ethics experts called improper.

Michael Colbruno, a spokesman for Quan's campaign, said campaign staffers consulted with the city attorney's office, which informed them that while it is not illegal to send political e-mails to city staffers at their official accounts, it's better not to.

"We're going to scrub all the dot govs," Colbruno said, referring to the government e-mail addresses. "However they got there."

The e-mails that employees received invited the public to campaign events held by the mayor and included links to her re-election website, which solicited campaign donations.

Ethics experts said the e-mails were problematic.

"You're sending it to machines that are owned by the public, and you're taking away from staff time that is supposed to be spent on the public," said Hana Callaghan, director of government ethics at Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. "There's (also) the implied coercion: Donate to a particular politician or lose your job."

Colbruno said Tuesday that the campaign e-mail was sent only to people who had signed up for the mayor's press distribution list, but city employees who received the e-mail at work told The Chronicle they had never signed up to Quan's campaign site."

Quan continues to be a liar and cheat.

While 4 people were gunned down in Oakland, Quan was, once again, partying during her self proclaimed Heiro Day. While it's nice to have a good time once in a while, I truly believe our mayor needs to buck up and get to work. While she continues to party and have fun, whose running the city? Mayor Quan, people are dying while you insist on having fun.

Our ever fun loving mayor sure did party this week: She partied at the Love our Lake Day event, she partied at the Dia de las Americas party, and she took pictures of herself Partying with the 66th Mob/The Black Hole Raider Nation folks.

Unfortunately for the rest of us who work, visit or live on Oakland, it wasn't such a good time: An infant baby was shot, a home invasion robbery occurred, the police are still understaffed and overworked, 42 assaults/14 robberies/38 burglaries and 7 sexual assaults occurred.

We all know Quan is incompetent and believes she can party her way into being re elected, but there is some great news. She is woefully behind in the polls, with about 70 percent of Oakland residents now convinced, by her dismal record and failures, that she is a boob whom they shall NOT vote for.

Could there be a light at the end of this dark, dark Quan infested tunnel? I do believe she will be VOTED OUT COME ELECTION DAY!!!
