Great performance by Piepho in Oakley at BOS meeting

I'm sitting watching the BOS meeting on TV that was held in our City of Oakley council chambers. I was wondering why the Board of Supervisors would come to Oakley to conduct business. They have not done this in at least ten years. While I sit here and watch Mary N. Piepho talk the sweet talk and schmooze the audience and camera it dawns on me what is really going on. This is a political move to gain support from Oakley residents for re-election. They changed the supervisor lines to put Oakley in District III and leave Federal Glovers District V. What better way to kill two birds with one stone. Bring the county offices and staff to Oakley to get praise from the locals and maybe some votes too. Cost effective for Mary's campaign, not so much for the people who pay Mary's salary. Excuse me but this is just wrong. Why couldn't we stay with Federal Glover?
