Taxpayers Pick Up The Tab:
Redevelopment Agency Provides Junk Food, Mattress Stores

Oh thank heaven!
Need a shot of fat and salt? The Emeryville Redevelopment Agency's got your back! Or maybe 'had your back' is more fitting. As developers line up their forces to combat the Governor's recent rescinding of redevelopment agencies state-wide, we should pause to acknowledge all the good works the Emeryville Redevelopment Agency has done for us, the residents.
The opening this week of the new Seven Eleven on the corner of 40th Street and San Pablo Avenue provides just such an opportunity. Emeryville residents who crave cigarettes and processed garbage food will have yet another outlet to satisfy their cravings. And it's all thanks to the enlightened vision of the Emeryville Redevelopment Agency and it's chief apologist and huckster, City Manager Pat O'Keeffe.

It's all been done with us in mind, mind you. Emeryille's Redevelopment Agency said all the big box malls and fast food and franchise chain retail is an essential ingredient to a livable town and they pursued it with great alacrity; we've been the lucky beneficiaries of that forward thinking vision.
