At least two groups are gathering the necessary signatures to recall Oakland Mayor Jean Quan. If they succeed, Oakland voters will face several important questions. Join us for the live streaming of Recall: A panel discussion on the issues, rules and risks of a mayoral recall, 6 to 8 p.m. tonight. The live discussion will be held at Nile Hall, 668 13th St., inside Preservation Park in Oakland. It is free and open to the public. Seats are available. You can also watch it live right here on insidebayarea.com.
Panelists include: Oakland City Attorney Barbara Parker, Max Neiman, senior research fellow at the Institute for Governmental Studies, UC Berkeley, Oakland Tribune reporter Cecily Burt, Corey Cook, associate professor, Department of Politics, University of San Francisco, and Evelyn Hsu, senior program director, Maynard Institute for Journalism Education.
Martin G. Reynolds, Bay Area News Group's senior editor for community engagement, will moderate the discussion.
This event is brought to you by the Oakland Tribune, League of Women Voters of Oakland, the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education and the Laney Tower.
