The purpose of this website
Thank you for visiting us.
The purpose of this website is very simple: to present reasons why former State Senator Don Perata should not be elected mayor of the City of Oakland, California.
While the election of Don Perata as Oakland mayor would probably be very good for Mr. Perata and his friends and family and a few of his associates, we believe that it would be very bad for most of the residents of the City of Oakland.
On this website, we will be fair. We will not present rumor or gossip. While the website is based upon our opinions, those opinions will be backed by facts verified by the public record.
On the other hand, there will be no attempt to be balanced. Everything on this website is presented as reasons why Don Perata should not be mayor of Oakland. If you wish to look for reasons why Don Perata should be mayor, you should look elsewhere. Don Perata's campaign website is one good source. Another would be the columns of San Francisco Chronicle columnist Chip Johnson, who is a strong and avid supporter of Don Perata.
We will also present no arguments for voting for any of the other Oakland mayoral candidates. As the banner above states, "Anybody But Don Perata" is an independent website not affiliated with any political officeholder or candidate or political campaign. You will have to look elsewhere for information on other candidates. We urge you to do so.
If you wish to contact the people who operate this website, you may do so at email@example.com. If you have any suggestions for other material that should be included on the website, please send them along.
There are many news articles and opinion pieces on Don Perata scattered across the internet and in the public records of the City of Oakland, the County of Alameda, and the State of California. This is our attempt to collect as many of those articles and arguments into one location. There is a good deal of information about Don Perata. Some of it has already been written. Some of it is still being written. The website will be a continuing project as we attempt to collect it all. We invite you to visit us periodically to keep up with new postings and new developments. As they say in many Oakland neighborhoods, y'all come back again. Don't be a stranger.
Again, thank you for visiting the Anybody But Don Perata website. We hope the information presented helps you make an informed decision in the important Oakland mayoral election in November of 2010. The future of our city depends upon it.
