I think it is GREAT that the old Mayors of San Ramon and Livermore were booted out-with a BIG boot too. Local elected spots are no place for career politicians, inspite of what Kamena says.

One measure of a great leader is how they train their future replacements.

I agree George. Every Council chair that these termed-out past Mayors could have taken *if they were elected* would have been a spot for the new voices of future leaders and future Mayors.

Plus these *Bart to downtown* flip flopping leaders, and supporters of overpaid City Managers, out of touch growth pushers needed to go.
