Ann Crosbie replied to Dave Jacobs's discussion Fremont new gerrymandered Districts
"85% does seem like a lot of people in favor of C-1a until you realize that that this is only 205 people in a city of 220,000. There will be two new seats which will effect the influence that the current city council members will hold."

"I understand why you think choosing this map is self serving but why isn't the concern of Parkmont being split considered legitimate?"

Sarah Morgan replied to Dave Jacobs's discussion Fremont new gerrymandered Districts
"I am also upset about this...The city asked for public input, surveys--85% supported C-1, emails, and yet did NOT respond to any of our concerns. The powers that be--Tri-City Dems, John Smith, FUSD Trustee Ann Crosbie pushed the C-2 maps to suit…"

RISE AND RESIST--RENT CONTROL, IMMIGRANTRIGHTS at Union City

May 13, 2017 from 11:30am to 2:30pm
The RISE Coalition is hosting a discussion/panel on Immigrant Rights, Housing Justice, Rent Control. You can learn about your immigrant rights and support your neighbors. There will be translators, an attorney to answer questions, and hopefully elected officials. It has been two years since Council Member Bacon asked for a referral to staff about having rent control in Fremont. It is at a standstill--and yet other cities in Silicon Valley have been able to get "just cause eviction" into law.…See More

Harrison applies for Alameda County Treasurer/TaxCollector

I recently learned that Harrison has applied to fill the vacant post of retiring Assessor-Donald White. I have huge concerns--Harrison has a history of taking money from special interests--Carmel Partners in 2016. He could continue to take money from these special interests and as a favor, give them reduced tax rates. Although Valle's office said that couldn't happen, but it could. Please call your supervisor--Valle/District 2--510-259-1097 or Haggerty/1 (Harrison's best buddy) 925-551-6995.…See More
