Recently, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors made a shocking and shameful decision. Supervisors Wilma Chan, Richard Valle and Keith Carson should be held accountable for their reckless and absurd decision to effectively turn away more than $5 million from the Department of Homeland Security based on a vocal, but minuscule minority of misinformed members of the community.
Dozens of Bay Area residents gathered at the Alameda County Board of Supervisors building in Oakland to demand supervisors audit Alameda County Sheriff Gregory Ahern’s budget. Those gathered at the demonstration want to know how the sheriff’s office is handling taxpayer money. At the event, organizers set up placards with questions and answers on them.
