Wednesday Must Read: Quan Ousts Two Budget Officials; Prop 8 Sent Back to State Supreme Court

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. In her first full day as mayor of Oakland, Jean Quan ousted the city’s two top budget officials and replaced one of them, the Trib reports. Assistant City Administrator Marianna Marysheva is leaving the city effective Friday, as is city Budget Director Cheryl Taylor. Quan, who has vowed to deliver a balanced city budget by the end of March, appointed Sabrina Landreth, an analyst in the budget office, to replace Taylor. Landreth also was a budget analyst for the city council’s finance committee when Quan was the chairwoman. Quan also attended morning roll call yesterday at the police department. On Monday night, about 1,000 people showed up at City Hall for an open house — that Quan hosted — to learn about volunteer opportunities in the city.
