    We propose delaying the approval of the proposed two advertising sign relocation agreements with Becker Boards and Outfront Foster Interstate LLC, until a superior offer can be entertained as drafted by Clear Channel which will incorporate five locations from Champion Outdoor Ventures. The offer from Clear Channel / Champion has already been determined by City Staff to be a superior proposal benefiting the City of Oakland, its charitable interests and the EDMUD Consumer Assistance Program ("CAP"). The City has a vested interest and a fiduciary duty to more favorable terms for the City of Oakland and its residents. Gary Barbosa, CEO The Champion Family of Companies, Champion Outdoor Ventures
