It's hard to believe how incredibly stupid people in Alameda County are to vote for Price. These same policies she's promoting have emboldened criminals and increased crime one county over in San Francisco where their DA was recalled and have still had a lasting effect on property and drug crimes. They've had the same effect under George Gazcon in Los Angeles (with murder rates up 35%) and Alvin Bragg in Manhattan - who charged a senior citizen shopkeeper defending his life for murder when the video showed it was clearly self defense. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and expecting a different result.

No incarceration of people under 25 = free criminal reign on physically attacking seniors, Asians, immigrant business owners - all of which already happens at an alarming rate in our county. Sanctuary city and no gang enhancements means no prosecution and no consequences in Alameda for the undocumented gangs selling Fentanyl and human trafficking. Since SF just got a real prosecutor, they'll just move over here. While Pleasanton will most likely experience more home invasion crimes and a small percentage more physical and gun attacks, the poor and immigrants in the economically disadvantaged locales in Oakland, San Leandro and Hayward will be living in a very scary world should Price win.

If you look at the Alameda County elections map, you can see Price has virtually no support in Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore. We should consider seceding from Alameda County if she wins. The pandemic brought to light that the people of Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore have little in common with the rest of Alameda County (except love of the same sports teams). We shouldn't be punished with bad policies and bad leaders because the rest of the county doesn't have much sense.
