Steve Mick has spent the last years working on a number of organizations in Alamo and is a strong advocate of incorporation. While he wants to see Alamo become a town, he is not in favor of sweeping changes. "My core philosophy is that I am an Agent of Minimal Change," he said. "I'm not against change. I just want it to be measured and reasonable."
A retired computer specialist from Livermore Lab, Mick said he feels that most residents want the town to remain basically what it is now, a semi-rural community. "Take a look at the way Alamo looks now and what we want it to look like in the future and those should look the same."
He feels that incorporation would give Alamo a better sense of community. For instance, Scout troops could open meetings of the Town Council. As a council member, Mick said he would advocate keeping the various committees already in existence, and he would like to see a lot of residents involved in new fun events.
Mick said his time working on community projects has given him the tools to be a strong member of the first council and the job would be a natural extension of what he has been doing. "As far as I know, I'm seen as a consensus builder. I have knowledge and experience in the way government works, and I can run a heck of a meeting."
