Oakland politician, wealthy lobbyists, gorge on lobster

Forget the rubber chicken — Oakland City Councilman Abel Guillén is breaking new ground when it comes to dining for dollars.

In place of the usual tasteless poultry dish, Guillén is offering supporters a “lobster feed” to go along with the speechifying at a Sept. 9 fundraiser.

It’s being co-hosted by local unions, including firefighters, Teamsters and food workers, with tickets going for $125 to $1,500 a head.

Guillén says it will help him fight “to ensure that all Oakland residents can share in the benefits of our economic prosperity.”
