Monday Must Read: Quan Says No to Stop and Frisk; Obama Talks of Gay Rights, Gun Control, and Climate Change

1. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan told the Chronicle that she opposes stop and frisk, even though she wants the city council to approve a $250,000 contract for the biggest proponent of the controversial police tactic — William Bratton.

The council is set to vote on Bratton’s contract tomorrow night.
