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.

A Must-Read: BART Board Candidate Forum Recap, Part 1

A great chance to watch the three candidates for BART Board, district 4, answer questions. The commentary comes to the same conclusions that I have ... and that you will probably too!

Check it out here.

The video of the BART board being raked over the coals by Oakland City Councilwoman Desley Brooks for their inaction on the 2009 BART shooting — and incumbent Carole Ward Allen throwing a hissy fit and walking out during the scolding is astonishing. It's worth excerpting here.

Why would anybody want this kind of "leadership" of BART?
