    If the IBEW wants to influence development in Oakland, they should open a hall in Oakland. It’s not Oakland’s problem that the IBEW hiring hall is in Dublin. The IBEW abandoned Oakland after the 1989 earthquake, believing that the suburbs were a better bet. If the union had repaired their hall at 1918 MLK in Oakland, they’d be sitting on prime real estate today. If I were the mayor, I would be reminding the union of that fact.

    That said, the Oak Knolls development that the union opposes is garbage and should be killed. A 200-acre development should have a minimum of ten thousand dwellings. 900 is ridiculous.
