Dellums Strikes Port Truckers’ Deal

Ron Dellums has not yet decided whether he plans to run for reelection this year, but he sure looks like a mayor determined to get things done. Over the weekend, Dellums struck a key deal that may save the jobs of up to 1,200 truckers at the Port of Oakland, according to the Trib. The pact with state officials and the trucking industry will allow the truckers to keep serving the port while they apply for $11 million in new grant money earmarked for truck retrofits.
