As you may be aware, the Alameda City Council campaigns were very heated and passionate during the last days leading up to the November 2 election, requiring that I spend funds to keep the campaign positive and accurate. Given the slim margin of victory, these efforts were successful in my re-election bid. I appreciate your support in this success.
I will honor my commitment to building partnerships to advance our shared vision for a safe, environmentally-friendly community that is well-planned and economically sustainable. We will need to strengthen our partnership with our schools, retain and recruit more businesses to create jobs, maintain staffing levels for police and fire, and continue to deliver quality community resources and amenities.
