This Resolution 87044 is an illegal Resolution. This matter failed at the February 6, 2018 Council meeting by the following vote (4) Yes (3)No and (1) Abstention. Council member Dan Kalb proceeded to introduce a subsequent illegal motion that that was approved by a majority of the Council.. His motion not only violated the Ralph Brown Act 54953, but also violated Roberts Rule of Order with regards to Motions and is the governing document how the Council is guided by procedural matters when it comes to motions.
A member of the Public brought this illegal procedure to the attention of the Council President and the Councils Parliamentarian which is the City Attorney both refused to opine in the matter. I subsequently filed an official Complaint on February 8, 2018 with the following enforcement entities: Alameda County District Attorney's Office, Oakland's Public Ethics Commission as well as giving the Complaint to the Alameda County Grand Jury.
On February 20, 2018 of the meeting of the Oakland City Council, the approval of the draft minutes of the February 6, 2018 was withdrawn because it did not accurately reflect what happen on the original motion where 25 speakers had spoken; the minutes suggested that they had spoken on Councilmember Dan Kalbs illegal motion.
Further, it should be noted the date of Resolution February 18, 2018 two days before the Council meeting of February 20, 2018 where the draft minutes of the February 6, 2018 was withdrawn; Neither does Resolution 87004 include Council President Larry Reid's name as sponsors of the Resolution which was a point of discussion at the February 6, 2018 Council meeting where the matter failed.
NOTE: THIS EFFORT IS A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO DECEIVE PUBLIC AND PURPOSELY FALSIFY LEGAL DOCUMENTS(I.E. RESOLUTIONS )
"The City Council hereby declares that the proper operation of democratic government requires the public officials are bound to observe, in their official acts, the highest standards of performance and to discharge faithfully the duties of their office... Recognizing the PUBLIC INTEREST must be their primary concern, their conduct in both their official and private affairs should be above REPROACH."
The City Council violates Roberts Rules of Procedures after the Original proposed Motion was defeated at the February 6, 2018 City Council meeting.
See Chapter 10 of Roberts Rules of Order attached and the legislative history through March 6, 2018 and how the Council is trying to illegally attempting to deceptively manipulate the MOTION process according to ROBERTS RULES OF ORDER.
