“Tony Daysog”: These two words when spoken together strike fear into the hearts of at least two local unions. Add “Councilmember” to the front of the mix and raise the anxiety at least a notch or two. That new level of fear spurred a crusade to strip Daysog of that title.
To accomplish this, the crusaders took on a name — an identity to hide behind. “Alamedans United” they called themselves. On Aug. 15, the campaigners filed Form 460 with California’s Secretary of State. One week later, they turned the mandatory forms in to the City Clerk’s office here in Alameda.

A negative political attack ad mailer against Councilmember Tony Daysog has created a bit of a stir less than three weeks from the election.
The mailer has two ads, the first shows excerpts from planning board member David Burton’s Sept. 14 letter in the Alameda Journal. Burton was critical of Daysog for not supporting the Planning Board’s decision to allow an assisted living facility be built near the Oakland Airport.
