Re: “Kaplan, Bates, deHaan, and Roy, Plus No on 8

The more you think about it the East Bay Express is slowly but surely becoming a crusader for conservative causes and candidates with conservatives points of views.

I am very disappointed on the reasoning for Mc Wilson and both endorsements for EBMUD both of incumbents did not cause the drought and needed to react to the facts: WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF WATER. What was the board to do? lower prices for users? Did your staff even take the time to interview the candidates? Now, I can point out to actual accomplishments done by the current EBMUD board:
1. Leads the state on Water quality - yes, and second on the nation.
2. Awarded for being the MOST GREENEST water district in the NATION.
3. We are in the low end of water rates in the region.
4. First to complete all system wide retrofitting in anticipation of the big one and a state mandate.
5. Negotiated with Sacramento for a share plan that lower our construction cost for new water supply by $40mm.
And there is plenty more to re-elect all of the incumbents on the EBMUD. Before you start saying that the folks at Contra Costa were lead off the hook you need to see the facts. For the first time this board is actual as one working as a unit with the interest of the whole district at hearth and making things happen. Big thinks and projects are on the way because of the working relationship that we now have in that board. No longer the infighting between Alameda County vs. Contra Costa County are getting on the way of making sure that all of those who depend on EBMUD get fair rates and good quality of service.

At this point I agree with Mr. James comment. The staff at the EBX needs to stop using more than the cannabis - I really believe you folks must be abusing crack cocaine and need to cut down on consumption. Mc Wilson is a true role model for a community that desperately needs one. I am proud to call him a friend. He is no mother Teresa. To believe that folks that live in poor areas in Oakland do not grow up with challenges and to set standards of purity when it comes to a past criminal changes that have been dismissed is just not realistic. He talks about his accomplishments in his community. After graduating from CAL he came back to East Oakland and gave back to his community. He did not need to that but he came back because he believed in giving back.

The East Bay Express is wrong on not endorsing Mc Wilson, Linney and Patterson.
