Dellums Reality Check

by

comment

In case you missed it, Sunday's Chronicle included a nice reality-check of Mayor Ron Dellums' first year as Oakland mayor. The piece, by veteran political reporter John Wildermuth, rightly points out that Dellums has been exactly the type of mayor he said he would be -— a cautious coalition builder, and not a decisive hands-on leader. Which raises the obvious question -— is Dellums a victim of unrealistic expectations? Unfortunately, hizzoner didn't answer that question or any others posed by the Chron, because he refused to be interviewed, as is his habit.
