Me, I'd like to see/hear public statements from each of the 4 candidates regarding their stance on animal welfare issues. It's been said that the single largest lobby in the country is comprised of people who care about animals.


NOTE: The Alameda Co. Board of Supervisors recently voted 3:2 to outlaw the rodeo's "mutton busting" event, in which very young children--often in tears--are coerced into riding terrified sheep, dangerous for all concerned. BOTH SUPERVISORS HAGGERTY AND MILEY VOTED "NO" on this humane proposal, despite the fact that it had the support of the Alameda Co. Veterinary Medical Assn., the East Bay SPCA, the Ohlone and Berkeley Humane Societies, and a host of others. An on-line petition garnered more than 180,000 signatures in support. Our Board of Supervisors should reflect the wishes of the people. Let all the candidates hear from you!

I want to share our experiences with Senator Weickowski and his staff. A group of many hundreds of us representing many thousands in his district wrote to him and many visited because our livelihoods were at risk due to the new law AB5 which essentially makes it illegal to work as an independent contractor. We carefully presented a stellar case for modification. We were ignored, humiliated, and disparaged repeatedly in response to our effort to preserve our future. This was very painful he is there to represent us. If he wins as supervisor there is no reason to believe he would listen to citizens and that clearly should be the number one job of an elected official listen and try to work with and help citizens.
