On Attracting Retail…

Live Blogging #oakdebates | 7:56pm
Candidates are asked which retailers they want to attract if elected:
Anderson Downs: Target because they ‘employ ex-cons’
Lee Tolbert: Big Box, including Wal Mart and Home Depot
Kaplan: Urban Outfitters and Costco. Says that we should harness our ‘hipster’ cachet to woo retailers to Oakland.
De La Fuente: wants to streamline the application process so that “we don’t place super demands” on potential business that want to come to Oakland.
