To the Oakland City Council: President Larry Reid, Lynette Gibson-McElhaney, Rebecca Kaplan, Dan Kalb, Abel Guillen, Annie Campbell Washington, Noel Gallo, Desley Brooks.
Dear Council Members,
The Public Bank of Oakland is well on its way to fruition. There’s an active group of Oakland residents working to bring the Bank to life (Friends of the Public Bank of Oakland).
There’s strong support from organizations in the community (see signatures below), some of whom have been supporters since May 2016.
All that’s missing is approval from you.
We respectfully request that you make Oakland fiscally sound by approving the Feasibility Study for the Bank immediately.
