A Progressive Alamedan

Various writings from a resident of Alameda regarding the political scene. The local perspective of local, state and national politics and a few other odds and ends of local concern. May not be particularly interesting to people outside of the Alameda area.

Don Perata is Abusing His Power

Check out this article from BeyondChron.org: Perata and Migden Join To Stop Leno Bills.

Apparently the Don, working with State Senator Carole Midgen, is holding up nearly all of Assemblymember Mark Leno's bills — many of them no-brainers — in order to rebuff Leno's primary challenge of Midgen. (Mark Leno is a terrific legislator, and he has come up with some great bills lately!) He's also attempting to create a loophole to extend his own term limits

This is inexcusable behavior (and an an embarrassment to his hometown of Alameda). I sure hope this backfires on Perata (and Midgen) when voters find out what is going on.

Read the whole article.
