I think it is pathetic that Contra Costa mayors can't find a better speaker than Willie Brown. He is an embarrassment as a person and a mayor. He was San Francisco's worst mayor. Surely they can find someone with better scruples and higher intelligence.

Willie Brown, like all Democrats is a liar and hypocrite. I wonder how he affords all those $2,000 suits after being in politics all his life?

Time for change all right. Time for mid-term elections to get rid of McNerney and all democrats thiefs and liars.

Let's put the adults in charge.

Clearly, the two of you have no idea who Willie Brown is as a person or a Mayor. Frances, please give up the facts when making statements like that you sound foolish. Gus, I am an embarrassed Republican, who made you the authority on "all" Democrats? Before barking out that someone is a liar and hypocrite you like Frances should check your facts. BTW, Willie Brown is a practicing attorney and like many in his profession makes quite a bit of money and he is a bachelor, if I didn't have four children and a wife to support, I might have a couple of those suits myself. Both of you sound like very jealous people. Gus, I could not leave this page without saying, when you are using thief as a plural it is spelled thieves. I bet your belief is that all black people are stupid well, get ready for it because the dummy flashing little children on Iron Horse trail, the fool getting arrested for making graffiti on the back of a new building, on and on are not and these black people that you won't stop berating are going to make our community a little bit better by putting them where they belong, in jail. Get on the band wagon or move to jolly old England.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
