Alameda Mayor Trish Spencer

Mayor Trish Herrera Spencer declared Tuesday, March 27, a “Day of Education and Sharing” in honor of the legacy and birthday of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (the Rebbe), leader of the Chabad movement. The Alameda County Board of Supervisors marked the day with a similar proclamation. 

These local proclamations took place alongside those given by governors in all 50 states including Gov. Jerry Brown.


Local officials including City of Alameda Mayor Trish Spencer celebrated new Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) Bus Service. 

The launch of bus Line 19 — a new bus route operating between Fruitvale BART and Downtown Oakland via Alameda’s Buena Vista Avenue — took place on Dec. 18 last year. 

The new service represents the second phase of AC Transit’s expansion of service funded via Measure BB. Some $30 million in annual tax revenues will fund a nearly 14 percent increase in overall bus service.
