Kudos to Supervisor Haggerty. Let's get more funding for metropolitan mobility enhancements. Locally speaking, the HOV lanes and some widening are good moves for I580, but let's get the westbound I580 to southbound I680 interchange connector started and completed. Despite all the improvements, this continues to be the bottleneck in the Tri-Valley. Also, why do they keep putting signals on Isabel/Route 84 (at Vineyard, Concannon, Jack London, etc). This is supposed to be an expressway afterall. . . .doesnt make sense

Can anyone explain what an Alameda County Supervisors job is, what he is for, how much they make, and why they are needed? Seems to me would should be looking for ways to eliminate waste.
