3:47 PM PST: Igancio de la Fuente, who has been part of many efforts over the past decade to keep all the teams in Oakland, just stated that he will keep up his efforts to keep all 3 teams in Oakland. He feels that” the city is in a better postion than in the past to get this done.” Chairperson Brunner concers with what de la Fuente had to say, along with exploring  plans incase any or all 3 teams leave as well as looking at the 980 site. She agrees with de la Fuente on moving forward with the project. RF Drummer is filming the whole event and will have the footage up on our Ustream channel later in the day.
