Dave Kaval Told Zennie Abraham Oakland A’s Made Las Vegas Land Offers Weeks Before Review Journal

On February 21st, the Las Vegas Review Journal ran an article behind a paywall with the headline “A’s have offers on at least 4 potential Las Vegas stadium sites”. Moreover, the Review Journal ‘s Mich Akers claims to quote an unnamed “team representative” as the news source.

The Las Vegas Review Journal could have saved itself the work and used the Zennie62 YouTube / Oakland News Now interview with Oakland Athletics President Dave Kaval from a full four weeks ago, where Kaval introduced the same news.  Here’s the full Zennie62 YouTube / Oakland News Now video from that time:

As the video shows, Kaval said that the organization had put in offers on several sites, but did not reveal the locations of the lands in question. As to the deadline, Kaval remarked that there are parallel paths between Las Vegas and Oakland, but was not sharing when they were going to cut bait on either city for a deal in the other town.

But by putting the same information out that was introduced four weeks ago, but after the Final EIR Oakland City Council Meeting, Dave is sending the message that he’s not happy with the pace and progress in Oakland.

Oakland has not given Kaval the Tax Increment Financing revenue estimates that were to be released three weeks ago. And the City of Oakland has made it known it is still “exploring” rather than implementing creating an EIFD Enhanced Infrastructure Financing District after having the California Legislature and California Governor Gavin Newsom sign SB 293 Skinner into law October 11th, 2019. SB 293 Skinner paved the way for the Enhanced Infrastructure Financing District to be at Jack London Square and for the ballpark and affordable housing.

It’s clear the Oakland A’s are unhappy that the City of Oakland is screwing up.

Stay tuned.


Note from Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area, Zennie62 YouTube, and Zennie62Media: this Oakland News Now video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
