Polls: Oaklanders Want Better Roads, Policing, and Youth Programs, But Are Undecided About Council Candidates

A new poll shows that large majorities of Oakland residents want better maintenance of city roads, an increased emphasis on public safety, and better programs and services for youth. The poll, commissioned by the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, also showed that majorities of city residents expressed support for spending more money on libraries and parks and recreation. However, the survey, conducted by longtime East Bay pollster Alex Evans, did not ask residents how they propose to pay for the programs and services they said they want. In the past, Oakland voters have expressed desires for more services, but then have voted down revenue measures that would have paid for them.
