North Oakland Now: Ten OPD officers rehired; State of State delivered

on February 1, 2011

Jean Quan announced yesterday that she will rehire 10 Oakland police officers. But, O.N.’s Samantha Bryson reported yesterday that it is still unclear if Police Cheif Anthony Batts will stay in Oakland. Last week, Gregory McConnel wrote an Op-Ed for Oakland North encouraging Batts to stay – what do you think the new police cheif should do?

In other news, Jerry Brown gave his first State of the State address last night. The California Report’s John Myers reported this morning that the speech was short, pointed and entirely focused on the tough work of balancing the budget.
