On October 16, 1993, Zenny’s first newspaper column, “Zenny Abraham’s Economy,” began on the pages of Monclarion, a small publication in Oakland, California.

Zenny says: Also, my background was in urban planning, not journalism. I just completed an internship at the Oakland Redevelopment Authority, graduated with a Masters in Urban Planning program at Cal and, thanks to Alameda County Superintendent Keith Carson, served on the Alameda Base Reuse Commission. .

Zenny wanted to write about economic development in Oakland, so a friend and aide to Alameda County supervisor Keith Carson suggested that he apply for a column.

At The Monclarion, Zenny was able to shine a light on many Aucklanders and even break some stories.

Basically, the Monclarion gig gave Zenny a specially designed position as economic advisor to Oakland Mayor Elihu Harris.

Zenny had an oversight and reporting role for “everything from Redevelopment to Raiders.” So while he was both that and a columnist for Monclarion (with the backing of Treadway) in 1996, Hills Newspaper publisher Warren “Chip” Brown called him “Major F”, which Elihu wanted. I hated what he was writing because of the strong mayor’s suggestion.

At his meeting with the NFL Owners, Brown went all out. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough. Jacksonville won the 2005 Super Bowl in his third ballot. Still, Zennie is proud of his SF Bay Area hotel manager and friends like sports agent Leigh Steinberg, sportswriter Mike Silver and his Mr. Poole, and Raiders CEO Amy Trask. .

In 2002, Zennie created Sports Business Simulations, the first technology startup centered around system dynamics games for the Oakland Athletics operations. In 2003 he was operating with eight contractors, thanks to his $25,000 investment from Marc Anthony Jones. zeitgeist”.

At the convention, Barack Obama was elected the first black Democratic presidential nominee. The rest is history.
