    I'm fairly confident she knew nothing more than their existence. Mayors don't deal directly w the permit or code enforcement department.

    [FONT=&amp]Michael Allison recalled Almena and Micah overcome with laughter once when they told of a fire-breather accidentally setting himself on fire at one of their many parties at the building, which was widely known as the Ghost Ship.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]Almena "surrounds himself with people who are going to treat him like he's some sort of guru,"

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]"They're my children. They're my friends, they're my family, they're my loves, they're my future. What else do I have to say?"

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]Neighbors and colleagues said the family moved into the building in east Oakland's former industrial Fruitvale neighborhood in late 2012 or early 2013 and quickly began leasing space in it to others.

    [FONT=&amp] hosted a regular dance party on the second Friday of every month called the Warehouse, where local Bay Area DJs would entertain the crowds and photographers would set up photo booths to snap pictures.

    [/FONT][FONT=&amp]The building itself was actually owned by a trust set by Chor N. Ng. According to the [/FONT]East Bay Express[FONT=&amp], “habitability” complaints had been made about the building to Ng, with the most recent complaint being filed in November. In October 2014, the city cited Ng because of housing and other structures that were being built inside the warehouse without permits, [/FONT]East Bay Express reported, citing city records.

    I hear you. As the sign on Harry Truman's desk read, "The buck stops here." So ultimately, there is accountability for her, just because she's mayor, if nothing else. I guess I don't tend to hold a mayor literally to blame for not solving every complex issue in town. Even if they promise to solve a problem, getting everyone on board isn't always going to happen. And so often, solving one, creates another one that was unforeseen. Clear out the unsafe warehouses and there will be more homeless on the streets. And on it goes. Not that efforts shouldn't be made going forward, of course. But I really don't want the spotlight to move too away from Derick Ion. This wouldn't have happened without him IMO.
