Support McMahon in any way you can

Editor:

I have worked for the youth of our community for more than 20 years, attempting to assure them the opportunities to grow athletically and academically. And for almost all of those 20 years I have known Mike McMahon to also be sincerely and authentically interested in the same effort.

I met him at Alameda Little League in 1995 when he coached and umpired there. Since then I have worked with him, most recently while he has been on the Alameda Unified School District school board. I know him to be knowledgeable about the issues that our schools face and he is determined to meet the challenges of educating the youth in our great community. I urge you to support his candidacy in any way you can, and to vote for him on Nov. 4.
