On Oakland’s Business Climate

Live Blogging #oakdebates | 7:39pm
Juarez: says that “yes” Oakland is ‘open for business’.
McMahan: we should “invest in the arts” but the Occupy Movement and the perception of safety has made it a real challenge to do business here.
Garza: wants “District 5 to be a destination”  to do business in.
Gallo: agrees, but cautions that business owners and residents are “our customers” and should be treated as such. Says that we need to consider what our “regional position is” and keep manufacturing here (or work with our trade partners in China).
