It's a few days late, but we can't let this busy week end without giving a hearty congratulations to Oakland's new Mayor-Elect Jean Quan. The City Councilwoman has made history -- she will be Oakland's first female mayor and its first Asian-American mayor. That's reason enough to cheer her victory. The other reason we're happy to see her win is that Quan is vocally in favor of building a new waterfront A's ballpark at Oakland's Victory Court site, right next to Jack London Square.
So, congrats again, Mayor-Elect Quan. Now, let's keep the A's in Oakland!
