Alamo council candidate Randy Nahas

Randy Nahas recalls meeting a few years ago with folks who'd been involved with Clayton's vote to incorporate in 1964.

"They said the best way to get it to pass is to run," remembered Nahas, 59. And so he is.

Nahas, who grew up in Piedmont, has lived in Alamo for 28 years with his wife Jan, and they raised their four sons here. "People want a back-to-basics lifestyle," he said. He works in property management, is a general contractor, real estate broker and Realtor.

"Basically Alamo is a bedroom community with two poorly maintained off-ramps between Walnut Creek and Danville," he said, and he thinks it needs its own government. "You don't have 'county fathers,' you have 'city fathers.'"

Nahas said the Comprehensive Fiscal Analysis proves that Alamo has the assets to be incorporated and he would like to help build Alamo into a financially stable contract town.

"Let's keep the money at home and see what we can do with it," he said. He believes that if Alamo were a town, its residents would gain more of a pride of community, which is especially important for healthy children.

The incorporation of Alamo is more important than his race for council, says Nahas, but if elected he sees himself as a consensus builder.

"I have a vision I would share with the others," he said.
