Dems’ tangled web
The City of Alameda Democratic Club has an office at South Shore Center around the corner from See’s Candies. If you go there, you will see a banner which says "City of Alameda Democratic Club" hanging on the wall with posters for Stewart Chen, Lena Tam and Solana Henneberry, implying that the club endorsed those candidates; it did not.
For City Council, the club only endorsed Jim Oddie. Frank Matarrese came in second, but he did not receive the required 60 percent needed for endorsement. There were no endorsements for either the BART board of directors or the school board.
The Central Committee of Alameda County, in which there is only one member from our city, endorsed those candidates. It matters not a whit to me who non-residents endorsed. What matters and angers me is being deceived. "Oh what tangled webs we weave, when first we practice to deceive."
