Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of Oakland (3)

Describe measures you would take to address the issue of homelessness in Oakland?
Respuesta de Marchon Tatmon:

In order to address these concerns Oakland must be proactive. In regards to homelessness and affordable housing, I plan on housing all homeless within my first 4 years in office, officially the count has been estimated at 2700 and unofficial count of 5700. This will be done by revenue generation, utilizing the recent vacant property tax initiative and a mix of affordable housing options; small homes, ADUs, utilizing Oakland Churches who have space for RVs and other mobile homes, funding of in law units and the conversion of shipping containers into homes (Shipping Container Home).  We must address homelessness with every tool in our toolbelt as a city.

How would you address the problem of adequate funding of public employee pensions?
Respuesta de Marchon Tatmon:

Equitable and sustainable economic development that could address the pension crisis. My vision is to create a HegenBerger Tourist Hub (HTH) around the Oakland Airport that includes 300 new businesses in the form of villages for people to enjoy, spend money, and fall in love with Oakland over and over. The HTH will boast 50% of its businesses from residents of Oakland, giving the people of Oakland an opportunity to grow in the wealth pouring into the city. The other 50% of businesses will be a mix of corporate and international businesses to attract people from around the world. I want to move the Convention Center from Downtown Oakland near the HTH in which 60% of the hotels in Oakland is in the HTH zone, and utilize space downtown for housing and business development. I also want to create a public bank to help small businesses get off the ground. The bank will be funded by utilizing the cannabis tax and giving cannabis businesses an option to utilize the public bank for a 5% fee, which will go toward community programs, and small business grants. For every cannabis boutique that utilize the public bank, their taxes will be reduced by the city of Oakland.

There are structural problems in the way buildings are inspected in Oakland.  How would you go about changing the fire and building inspection programs to ensure that inspections are completed?
Respuesta de Marchon Tatmon:

Bring aborad more man power, update training and hold people accountable.
