    wonderful. last minute notice for probably the most important decision the new council has to make. sheesh.

  • alameda vigilante

    I know it’s early in the morning, but they probably planned it that way for minimum attendance! THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE FOR COMMUNITY INPUT, THAT 5-10 MIN BEFORE THEY DISAPPEAR INTO CLOSED SESSION! IF YOU CARE, BE THERE! Or forever hold your peace.
    Eternal vigilance is the price of living well in Alameda

    Don’t you guys get it? This is merely to wear out any opposition to their program, and pretend there is public support for what they do. “See we care, we asked the citizens for their input!” Or to spread blame when the person “screws up” and sells us out to SUNCAL. This is a critical decision to hire someone to implement the policies set by the Council Triumverate. They are going to hire whomever they think will get their job done best. This is not a decision done by concensus. It is like hiring a nanny for one’s children, or some other truly personal decision. And why such a limited field? For a position like this, in our economy, there should have been hundreds of highly qualified applicants to chose from. Instead we have two lawyers who have chosen not to practice as lawyers anymore -Gilmore- can certainly relate to them, and one lightly experienced woman in the field. None of the quality of the fields in hiring past managers. They are playing a joke on the citizens. They are playing out just another well rehearsed skit instead of providing leadership for best interests of Alameda and Alamedans.

    What if the public urges hiring someone that Marie Gilmore simply can’t work with? Been there done that. Only as a permanent CM, and maybe one who leaves an existing “successful career” the damages paid out by the City will be greater when that person is put on administrative leave.

    I get it Barb, & I love you, but I fear your cynicism simply engenders more apathy. Or flight. Doesn’t each Alamedan have 1 of 3 choices:live w/it, try to change it or MOVE OUT? To unseat “Los Tres”, someone has to keep score of their mounting list of offences. I’ve never seen so many City business meetings violate the 72 hr notice rule before. Among other things, this violates the Americans w/Disabilities Act equal access rules (listed @ the end of every Regular Mtg. Agenda). Somebody should sue to render all decisions arrived @ in this matter null & void. I’m disabled. Hmm…
