Wiley is the much better candidate. Being a Civil Rights Attorney is very different than being a DA. Wiley is far more qualified. Pierce is a Soros backed DA. Pierce will bring the same problems Chesa Boudin brought to San Francisco and George Cascon brought to LA. Civil Rights Attorneys can do great work. Being a DA is not one of them. If Pierce wins, expect more crime.

@Sean I really don't get why people keep talking about George Soros in the context of the Alameda County DA race. Pamela Price was backed by Soros in 2018, but in the 2022 race Soros hasn't contributed to her campaign. People mention that a candidate is "Soros-backed" when: 1) its not true, 2) as if being associated with Soros is a negative in of itself. What has George Soros done to deserve this amount of disapproval?

What has Soros done? He's basically backed every "rogue DA"- Chesa, Gascon, Alvin Bragg, Kim Fox and Larry Krasner. Every city where he's backed a rogue DA has seen an increase in crime - with a 35% rise in the murder rate in Los Angeles County in the past year.

These policies of no cash bail for violent offenders, not charging fentanyl dealers and human traffickers when they're undocumented, and no jail for violent offenders under 25 just don't make sense - and statistically lead for more crime against the very people they are supposed help (African Americans, Latinos, economically challenged immigrants). George Soros has mentioned that he likes "playing God" with his money - you have to wonder if his nefarious endgame is some type of socieo-economic eugenics, ushering in a militarized, hyper-surveilled police state, or if he's just eff'ing with us plebeians because he's super rich and he can - and can afford security detail. Destabilizing and making cities unsafe makes him a real-life supervillain.

If Pam Price wins, talk to your kids about Fentanyl. The undocumented Mexican and Honduran gangs that got a pass under Chesa in SF - now that Brook Jenkins is in charge - will just move to Alameda County. And if Price lives up to her 10-point plan, they'll get a pass to sell their rainbow Fentanyl which is marketed to young children.

It's too bad Pleasanton is part of Alameda County. If you look at the elections map, Price had almost no support in Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore - save for our esteemed council member Julie Testa and council member elect Jeff Niebert. But under a Price DA we're all but guaranteed to experience an uptick in crime - be it assault, strong-arm robbery, home invasions, and drug dealing to poison our youth.

I hope Pleasanton weekly follows the actions taken and the data thereafter closely if price is indeed elected.

There is data from other soros backed candidates from across the country

These ideas are hatched from think tanks and the academic world. They lower the standard of how we treat others and neglect victims rights
