Original post made on Nov 14, 2021

To help voters in Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin and Sunol (and the rest of Alameda County) get to know the DA candidates so far, we are co-sponsoring a forum next weekend organized by community group Livermore Indivisible.

I participated as viewer for the Zoom candidate forum this afternoon. All three candidates are opposed of the death penalty. Mr. Wiley and Mr. Wilson were available before the event started, Pamela Price was a couple of minutes late. Mr. Wiley and Mr. Wilson are experienced prosecutors.
Pamela Price has no experience as a prosecutor.

Pamela started with a split screens depicting a stupid flow chart indicating flow of police, prosecutors, courts, boring eight grade waste of time. She giggled a lot, asked questions to be repeated. She seemed preoccupied with something off camera. Pamela stated she would model this district attorney office to be like Gascon in LA and San Francisco DA office.

Mr. Wiley stated that he has endorsement of the Hayward and the Oakland police departments. He spoke to the need for transparency, hold people accountable, and addressed gun violence, need for good police policies.

Mr. Wilson spoke to gun violence, and "leveraging", the practice of over charging to get a plea for a lesser charge. He will change that practice.

I believe Mr. Wiley to be the best Candidate of the three I saw this afternoon, I hope there will be other candidates declaring for the DA office in Alameda County.
