Quan Delivers Balanced Budget

Listening to the critics of Mayor Jean Quan, one might think that Oakland is on the brink of financial disaster. In fact, the opposite is true. Last week, amid the panic over the Warriors’ announcement, Quan and City Administrator Deanna Santana unveiled a balanced general fund budget that includes no cuts or layoffs for the first time in four years. In fact, Quan’s 2012-13 budget has enough money to finance a much-needed police academy.
