Over in Oakland, where two separate efforts are underway to recall Mayor Jean Quan, the city's top elected official isn't exactly helping herself out in the PR department. Or the deli department either, apparently. KTVU brings us the story of one local mother of two and her awkward run-in with Quan at a local supermarket:
Sue Graham is the wife of a PG&E worker, a mother of two teenage children and a once proud resident of Oakland - but that's changed in recent months.
Graham still lives in the city, but after her encounter with Mayor Jean Quan at a local supermarket her pride in Oakland lessened.
"I looked down the aisle and there was the mayor of Oakland," Graham said. "I thought about it and I walked right up to her and said 'I don't think you're doing a good job. Her response was, 'I raised my children here, I think it's perfectly fine and if you don't like it, move.'"
Well played, Quan. If Oakland citizens can't recall the mayor, why not just let the mayor recall Oakland citizens?
