Mary's MAC and its future in the new District 2??
Original post made by Hal, CDSI Research, another community, on Sep 2, 2011
What will be the role of the "Alamo MAC" in the new district 2?
This question repeats among Alamo region neighbors that fail to see any role for Mary's seven volunteer staff members beyond their support of Supervisor Piepho and her current/past staff. With declared allegiance to Ms. Piepho's former chief of staff as a candidate for district 2 supervisor, neighbors are convinced that the Alamo MAC will end its purpose in Alamo at next Tuesday's meeting. Ms. Piepho, present/past staff and MAC members have little recognition or approval among the majority of Alamo residents and as a result MAC members will have little purpose in the new district 2.
What is expected Tuesday evening is a "love-fest" as MAC members celebrate their last meeting as part of District 3. Reportedly, Mary's current and past staff will be present to celebrate what they consider to be the successes of a MAC that has never gathered support, recognition or participation by a majority of Alamo residents or any significant results for the community. It appears a location and agenda for Tuesday's meeting has not been published and rumor has it the event will be more like a farewell party.
As a journalist, there is a story to be told about the next stage for Alamo's participation in the new District 2.
