I'm not thrilled with the new city manager, breaking the low density housing mandate. Traffic is a big issue in Alameda more people= more cars. I hope EBRP department wins their issue against the City for the secretive manner in which they decided to allow yet more homes to be built next to Crab Cove. The Parks department wants to expand the park and provide additional parking. If you want to do something positive for alameda why not get the post office and the court house off Shoreline drive.. Neither of these building offer an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful views that we should all get a chance to see. I'm waiting for Mr. Russo to change my mind about him. He might have been right for Oakland but I don't think he gets alamedians.

Which city employees get their medical paid upon retirement? The ACEA employees do not as of this writing. Those retirees pay the city each month to remain in the PERS medical program all the city does is pass that money onto PERS and do the book keeping.
