I can't vote in Zone 7 elections because I'm not in Zone 7's district. However, the Dougherty Valley portion of San Ramon is and they can't vote in Zone 7 elections because Zone 7 is considered part of Alameda County. That's just plain wrong.

Zone 7 should be multi-county and separated from Alameda County Flood Control. This would eliminate the need for the County to approve everything Zone 7 does. Separating Zone 7 from Alameda County would save money, reduce time and duplication of services. Please elect Board Members who support separation from Alameda County. This is very important!

Your point is well received here.
In November please post you opinions and concerns the day or two before mail in ballots are received by voters.
Posting at this late date in ineffective.

Only masochists, wishing to harm themselves would vote for Corbett or Sbranti. Both are so totally owned by public unions, they are unable to ever consider us, the people, in decisions. Always, always, put union interests before struggling taxpayers. Just check the record of some ugly votes. Dems will still be the super-majority in our Sacramento Legislature, without sbranti. But these two union puppets are bad for us in Sacramento and Corbett in DC is the last thing we need there.

Taxpayer or Sucker,
You are very correct about Sbranti - he is owned by the unions. He also is a state officer of the California Teachers Association. He gets very little done in that capacity that aids teachers but gets lots done to empty teachers' pocketbooks in order to line those of CTA executives. He is also the backslapping Mayor of Dublin. No wonder then that Sbranti has been ripping off the taxpayers by drawing a full teachers salary from the Dublin school district but spending very little time there. What time he does spend there is rah-rah activity organizing and very little teaching. I strongly recommend that people not vote for him.

Roz, I assume you would support doing something about DSRSD also. The provide service in Pleasanton but in Pleasanton we are not allowed to vote for their elected officials.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
