After the speech, the City Administrator's newsletter said this:
On Thursday, March 6, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan delivered her third annual State of the City address from Council Chambers in Oakland City Hall. The address was cablecast live on KTOP TV-10 and streamed live on the Web. The overflow audience filled Council Chambers and several Hearing Rooms on the first floor of City Hall. The address centered on Mayor Quan’s highest priorities: public safety and economic development. She took stock of the City’s progress in 2013 and set strong goals for the coming year. While gun violence took a major decline in 2013, the work to make Oakland safer for everyone is far from done. Mayor Quan outlined specific strategies for strengthening prevention and law enforcement efforts through increasing resources, following through on strategies that are already proven successful and strengthening relationships between police and the community. With major development projects, growing local businesses and an expanding economy bringing thousands of jobs into Oakland, Mayor Quan announced new initiatives that will work to push those jobs into neighborhoods where unemployment is especially high. This is critical to breaking cycles of generational poverty, which in turn will increase public safety and facilitate swifter, stronger economic development.
