The Otaez Series – Part I

As part of a week-long series, Action Alameda News is publishing photographs from Alameda Mayor Marie Gilmore’s November 2nd, 2010, election party at Otaez Restaurant on Webster Street in Alameda. The pictures were downloaded from Mayor Gilmore’s Facebook page, and are published here in the public interest, under the doctrine of “fair use.”

Marie Gilmore was elected Mayor of Alameda that night, and Lena Tam was re-elected to Alameda City Council, and Rob Bonta was elected to City Council.

After months of consideration, Action Alameda News has decided to go forward and publish these photographs and let the public determine their significance, if any.

    I’ll say it again: no one makes Marie Gilmore look bad except Marie Gilmore. IMO, she needs to man up to this rather than continuing her campaign of rash behavior and poor form (2010 election, December 2010 covert set up to illicitly fire the Interim City Manager, substandard hiring process for a new city manager, recent op-ed that slanders elected city auditor and treasurer both), and proceed with the “dialogue and hard work” that she claims to value and that would have “sunshine” and involve a fully engaged body politic.

    Well, I can say that I know both the city auditor and city treasurer personally, and they have more integrity and intelligence in their little fingers than Marie Gilmore has displayed, ever.

    If they say the city is broke, the city is broke. Where are my property and sales taxes going? To broker shifty deals with shifty developers, pay some city employees way too much, and otherwise line the pockets of political cronies.

  • […] Dunno. Maybe it has something to do with her relationships with the firefighters? See Mayor Gilmore, on election night 2011, hanging off the shoulder of the very same paramedic (the IAFF Local 689′s political director to boot!) whose behavior at work caused a jury to find the city at fault earlier this year to the tune of $800+K here.
