Head and shoulders above the rest

Editor:

There is one candidate for city council who rises heads and shoulders above the rest. Jim Oddie. It’s not just that Oddie has been active in our community for years, as the head of the Alameda Democratic Club for many years, serving on the America’s Cup committee, working to ensure Alameda Hospital’s finances are strong.

As a candidate with integrity, who is clear about where he stands and listens to all people carefully, no matter their opinions, Oddie is a needed voice on the City Council. Our city has made great strides in the last four years. Securing significant funding for parks, bringing in new businesses and holding developers accountable for the impacts their projects bring.

Oddie is the best candidate for council to ensure that Alameda remains headed on the right track.
