Kuboyama refers to an exchange between police chief Paul Rolleri and Spencer, as reported in a recent Alameda Magazine article on the mayor.
Kuboyama wrote that the mayor was trying to “exert her power and investigate the matter,” and praised the chief for saying it was premature to discuss the matter.
He closed by describing the mayor’s actions as deplorable.
According to campaign disclosure filings available on the city’s website, the Alameda Police Officers Association political action committee donated just over $1,100 to the 2016 election campaigns for Rob Bonta, Malia Vella and Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft in the first half of this year.
Kuboyama’s letter, obtained through a public records act request, is reproduced below.
