Next Deadline:

The City Administrator will report back to the Finance Committee on June 13, 2017. Before then, we need everyone to show up at Oakland city budget hearings, and remind councilmembers how important a public bank is to the future of the city. Be sure to talk about how a public bank will save huge amounts of money and be useful to important City Councilmember priorities such as affordable housing, safe use of cannabis money, and dealing with the budget shortfall.

We are encouraging everyone to come out to the Special Concurrent Meeting of the Oakland Redevelopment Successor Agency/City Council
Tuesday, May 30th at 5:30pm
3rd Floor City Council Chamber, Oakland City Hall
