More people shot and killed in Quan's liberal city and she DOES NOTHING. Let's get this recall rolling. Where do I, my family and friends sign?

3 vicious rapes occurred this week in Oakland. All done by black males. The mayor and counsel have done absolutely nothing to rid Oakland of these deviants. Recall them all.

Mayor Quan is running around with Teddy Bears so the media can take her picture. Can you imagine General Patton stopping his offensive to save The Airborne at Bastogne to have his picture taken with Teddy Bears at Christmas! Quan just doesn't get it, Oakland is at war with the criminal element. People are DIEING. She needs to lead 100% of the time and forget about feel good photo shoots. Another reason to recall this inept mayor.

Ms Quan is an embarrassment. Her presence is a slap in the face to decent citizens who deserve safe neighborhoods.

There is something strange with Mayer Quan and her husband. I've spoken with active FBI friends and they say it has been serious enough for the last year that they recently uncovered something serious in China and it's nuclear funded military. Now I'm sure the CIA and NSA are looking into her and husband.

Yeah right, Mr. Retired FBI is going to blab about on going national security investigations. Let's quit the BS and focus on recalling Quan to minimize future damage to the city. The petitions are circulating. Have your friends and family sign them.

Apparently Mayor Quan has shut down access to her Facebook site because of negative comments. She must of gotten that idea from the Chinese communist government who block Internet access whenever the dissidents put up too much of a fight.

Whatever happened to the gang injunctions? I was mugged last week at Fruitvale and 580 in the Safeway parking lot. I thought the Oakland police were going to stop the gang members from hanging around down here?

Oakland Police Chief Batt was fighting for the gang injunctions, but Mayor Quan fought against the idea saying the injunctions would violate the gangsters rights! Can you believe it! Quan then downsized the police dept resulting in the total anarchy you now see in Oakland. Quan then wanted to protect the rights of the Occupy protesters and allowed them to vandalize downtown businesses and commit a murder. Quan is very arrogant in her belief that she will solve all of Oakland's crime problems. That is why Chief Batt resigned and crime had escalated wildly. Sorry you were mugged when it could have been prevented under a different mayor. If you are a resident, there is a recall petition drive under way to remove Quan from office. I encourage you to sign it.

Another excellent article in todays Chronicle about Mayor Jean Quan's incompetence. The article points out that the Port of Oakland is responsible for over 73,000 jobs in our area, and that Quan's failure in protecting the Port's and Oakland's interests from the law breaking protesters is "staggering."
Quan has made every wrong decision possible since she took office, and she has single handedly destroyed any hopes of Oakland becoming safer from crime or keeping businesses in the city. Please read the Chronicle's article and decide if your want an incompetent running your city. If you have had enough of jean Quan, please sign the recall petition that is circulating. Help rebuild Oakland by getting a new mayor that is mentally capable of protecting the citizens, businesses and Port of Oakland!

Five suspects arrested in the Frank Ogawa Plaze murder that would not have occurred had Mayor Quan done her job and ordered the protestors evicted once the crime escalated. Quan's actions, or lack thereof, are responsible for murders, assaults, vandalism, riots, the Port shut down, the Police Chief quitting, the City Attorney quitting, cronyism as she injected her family into city government even though they were never elected or hired, lack of a credible plan to address the rampant crime issue, businesses pulling out of Oakland, Port shipping declining because companies no longer have faith in Quan being able to protect the Port, her interference in Port operations despite her lack of operational knowledge, the Oakland Police Officers Association lack of faith in her, her continuing lack of a clear and decided pathway to salvage the city, her refusal to submit a detailed plan on how to reduce crime, her silly crime reduction plan that actually has cartoons in the document and a mission statement of "reduce crime in Oakland" (gee, that's like saying make America better without any detailed plan to go with it), the local media becoming more and more crit

And it continues, 10 more protesters arrested as they attempted to retake Ogawa Plaza. Thanks a lot Mayor Quan for empowering them. Quan gave them a mile and they took ten.

Have you noticed Quan has finally shut her big mouth up for a while? If you don't speak, you can't get into trouble for incompetency I guess.

Whoever is pulling Jean Quan's strings sure has got her to shut her big mouth lately. Kudos to whoever told her she is just to dumb to speak publicly on any issues. With no Quan, things do seem to be calming down.
