Employee pension contributions have not been discussed since 2007 ??? Are they kidding? how does THAT demonstrate fiscal responsibility?
When have you ever seen another governmental created and the administrative costs NOT go up.?
Do you really want bureaucratic independence?
This is a simple no thank you

Zone 7 independence from the county will not create "another bureaucracy" it will remove one. The Zone currently operates as a semi-independent organization. However some everyday functions such as purchasing and HR are internal to Zone 7 and external to Alameda county. Imagine going to Target and having to check out twice. Zone 7 is an organization dedicated to efficiency and reliability.
Also the citizens of South San Ramon should be hopping mad that they experience "taxation" with out representation.

Aaron, the residents of South San Ramon have representation through the Dublin San Ramon Services District. DSRSD negotiated the crazy water deal for that development as a customer of Zone 7. It's too bad residents there have to pay a premium for their water, but Zone 7's mission is to serve the residents of eastern Alameda County - NOT to subsidize Contra Costa County sprawl.
