Jean Quan’s tax plan riles Oakland library backers

SF Chronicle – “Oakland Mayor Jean Quan has proposed cutting 14 of the city’s 18 libraries, including a venerated African American museum and library, unless unions slash their pay or voters pass an $11.2 million parcel tax. The proposal has riled library supporters, who have come to council chambers en masse to demand that the council place the tax on the ballot.”
