A Salute to Oakland City Leaders

The Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce salutes the elected and appointed leaders of Oakland, including Mayor Jean Quan, Police Chief Howard Jordan, City Administrator Deanna Santana, the City Council, the Oakland Police Department, and everyone within the City Government for the peaceful and successful clearing of Frank Ogawa Plaza this morning.

It is a move that helps secure the plaza for all citizens to enjoy and removes the many safety and health hazards that were growing as overnight camping was allowed to continue. Now Oakland can move forward.

We concur with Mayor Quan’s comments at her press conference this morning when she asked that we all respect the city’s decision to close the camp and not hurt the city.

Moving forward, we commit to work with everyone who wants to grow our local economy. Local shops, restaurants and offices that have suffered lost business eagerly want to see their customers return.

Oakland is a great city and working together we can make it even better.
