It's not the responsibility of the District Attorney of Alameda County to "fix" the disproportionate incarceration problem. Being elected while running on those expectations was wrong.

The political climate in Pleasanton, is moderately liberal.

Alameda County, CA is very liberal. In Alameda County, CA 79.8% of the people voted Democrat in the last presidential election, 17.6% voted for the Republican Party, and the remaining 2.6% voted Independent.

Individual campaign contributions in Pleasanton CA.

In the last four years (2018-2021) there was 12,348 contributions totaling $2,665,630 to the Democratic party and liberal campaigns, averaging $216 per contribution.

In the last four years, there were 1,882 contributions totaling $518,635 to the Republican party and conservative campaigns, averaging $276 per contribution.

If Pamela Price is recalled, she would be allowed to run again in the next election. Given the liberal disposition of this county, she will be reelected.

What if your two-year old is shot dead in his/her car seat?

Elections have consequences. Pamela was very clear with her intentions. And her she was still elected. This voter didn’t vote for her based on her platform! We are suffering consequences of our own local election, with a Mayor that lacks leadership skills and council members that behave more like sheep than thought leaders.

Don’t complain, we get what we vote for. Democrat, Republican, it doesn’t matter. All too often we don’t research the candidates History. We just pull the lever for the party we are registered under. If we don’t get a grip on the lawlessness that has been threatening our communities and ruining innocent peoples lives we will be doomed. We have laws that are not enforced, prosecutors are soft on sentencing. If you watch any TV Channel for a while you will see one law firm after another advertising that they can get you a bigger settlement than any other ( the ads are very cleverly written) they say if it’s not your fault, and the naive take the bait.
Our work ethic is in the sewer.
Why should people work hard when we are constantly badgered with the message that if you vote for me your problems will become mine, or if you call my law firm we can get you more $$, It’s time to wake up, all that politicians and attorney’s do is make promises, line their own pockets.
