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.

Great Editorial about BART Fare Reduction

Did you see the editorial in the Alameda Journal last Friday? Here it is online.

The BART board of directors — Our representative is Carole Ward Allen — have so blatantly come up with this election-year scam. They think we are stupid enough to fall for it.

Maybe they think a nickel fare reduction (for a six month period) will make people forget about their boondoggle Oakland Airport Connector.

Well I'm not, and I'm sure you aren't going to fall for it either.

Carole Ward Allen, it's time for you to step aside.

(Later, I'll be posting a bit of information about Robert Raburn, my choice to replace her.)
