Describe Users/mikeubell here
I am a 20+ year resident of Oakland and a 40+ year East Bay resident (except for 3 years when we mistakenly moved to the South Bay). I am a retired computer software engineer and am involved in several volunteer activities. My main focus is in reducing gun violence in Oakland. To this end I work with S.A.V.E.-Oakland (member of the board), Oakland/Alameda Brady campaign (Newsletter editor, tweet manager), Make Oakland Better Now! (member of the board, acting website manager/tweet manager). I am also Bay Area Regional Data Manager for OFA.

welcome! I was just thinking about MOBN yesterday, actually, wondering what you guys have been up to. also recently have been to a SAVE event and just missed another (the one at fruitvale and mac). wondering if a twitter account would be possible for save for those of us not on FB who want to attend? glad to have you here!! -greenkozi
MOBN has been doing our usual hobnobbing around the city. Been looking into what should happen when Measure Y expires. Been thinking about mayoral debates, etc.
@SAVEOakland exists (much to my surprise). I am arranging to take it on in addition to my current tweeter duties, so stay tuned for StanIn announcements after the Turkey break.
yay that's so awesome! i'll follow now :) -gk
