Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker Takes a Tough Stance on City Council Interference

Barbara Parker is proving to be a no-nonsense city attorney — much like City Administrator Deanna Santana. Yesterday, Parker issued a tough new memo to city employees, reminding them that Oakland’s City Council members have no legal right to interfere with their work. The memo comes on the heels of a probe by Santana that uncovered evidence that Councilwoman Desley Brooks had interfered with city employees when she engineered a no-bid contract to build a swanky new teen center in her district.
