Oakland City Council Meetings Featuring Police Commission, Sick Leave, Ed Reiskin, Cancelled - Video

Oakland City Council Meetings Featuring Police Commission, Sick Leave, Ed Reiskin, Cancelled Today’s dual Oakland City Council meetings at 1:30 pm and 4:30 pm were cancelled. They were to take up resolutions that concern sick leave for Oakland workers, police commission powers, the approval of Ed Reiskin as Chief Administrative Officer, and a special day for Maraskeshia Smith. Oakland Councilmember Sheng Thao District 4 (Montclair, Oakland Hills) sent this email expressing her displeasure over the reasons for the outcome: Friends, Thank you for your continued patience as we update you on the changing dynamics of our scheduled meetings today. Due to a sudden lack of quorum, tonight's Council meeting scheduled at 5:30pm has been cancelled. Tonight's Council agenda had an Emergency Ordinance that I co-authored, to expand emergency paid sick leave to workers during the pandemic. Right now thousands of workers are risking their lives and livelihood. Because of this cancellation they will have to continue to wait to receive paid sick leave benefits that can help protect not only their lives but the lives of their families and their customers, as well. I am disappointed in the sudden lack of quorum. I personally stood ready to take action at today's meeting to address some of the needs our community faces during this difficult time. I am further disappointed that thousands of our fellow Oaklander's will have to wait on this lifesaving measure. I look forward to voting on this measure at our next Council meeting. Best, Sheng Thao Councilmember District 4 Stay tuned.
