Oakland, Whole Foods' Latest Reclamation Project

Having recently brought salvation to Potrero Hill, metastasizing retailer Whole Foods opened its doors in Oakland yesterday. Actual quotes from those on the scene:

1) "It brings a sense of elegance, a sense of flair, and a sense of community."
2) "The store was designed specifically for the progressive, food-sophisticated, dynamic and diverse culture of Oakland."
3) "We had to go to Berkeley for everything. When we need something, we can come here any time."

For bonus points, identify how many of these quotes could plausibly have been said by Jerry Brown.
