The Otaez Series – Part II

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.

    Gilmore’s behavior in these photos (today and yesterday) does NOT depict the manner and demeanor one expects from a political leader elected to the position of Mayor for a city of 70,000 people! Immature, lacking a sense of self and of any presence whatsoever. Where is her self respect? Where is her respect for the office to which she was just elected during a public event about that election and office?!?! Un-freaking-believable. I have not been impressed with with Gilmore’s behavior on the dais, but I had not seen these photos. Very VERY telling. What a shame this is what is heading up our city leadership at this very important point in time for our city, a fulcrum for our future. We can only hope that residents wake up, start paying attention, start participating more, and demand more and better of Gilmore than the low standards she quite clearly demands of herself.

    LOL! I’m bookmarking this page! So much better than BloBayAla which has NO pix! Looks like Marie Gilmore & Jeff DelBono are in LOVE! Talk about sleeping w/the unions! Where’s Rodney? Oh, there he is, w/Russo. This face shot of Russo must be the 1 EBayXprs used for their political cartoon 4/16. Rodney kinda looks like an African clone of Russo, only w/hair.

    Am I the only one troubled by alameda vigilante’s last comment? Combine it with Vania’s comments on minorities in law schools, and there seems to be an ugly undercurrent in the views of some of your regular contributors.

  • As you have done in the past, ‘anonymous,’ you are trying to make something from nothing, presumably to distract from the real issue. Not every acknowledgement of a person’s race is an insult or slight.
