What you can do:

Concerned about rash activity down at City Hall and possible violations of The Brown Act and the City Charter?

Write a letter to the acting city attorney; explain your concerns and ask her to look at the mayors actions the last week of 2010, determine what the violations of The Brown Act and the City Charter were exactly, and to do something about them. Be sure to use delivery tracking when you mail: USPS certified return receipt, UPS, or FedEx:

Donna Mooney, Acting City Attorney; Alameda City Hall, Room 280; 2263 Santa Clara Avenue; Alameda, CA  94501

Nancy E. O’Malley; Alameda County District Attorney; Alameda County District Attorney’s Office; 1225 Fallon St. Suite 900; Oakland, Ca 94612

And as we saw with the hospital board, can be the cause of bad policy and even harm.  Few are willing to break their chosen ranks when it’s necessary to stand up for right versus wrong, beneficial versus harmful.  Where’s the outrage and energy when things are harmful (the stroke protocol issue) and wrong (illegal mayoral activities)? These are the things everyone should break ranks for and speak out on.  These types of things do not discriminate and are personal to each one of us. . . .  Continue reading
