Dear neighbors,

We all know that Karen McPherson created an exceptional forum, the Alamo Area Council, for open discussion with all governments impacting Alamo. We also know that Mary Piepho, in her contempt for Alamo neighbors, simply had to destroy that exceptional forum.

Alamo Community Council is nothing more than an embarrassment richly earned by the disservice of Supervisor Piepho.

Ugly is as Ugly does,

Dear neighbors,

We should congratulate Ms. Karen McPherson for creating the Alamo Area Council (AAC) as a forum for discussion with all governments. It is my understanding Ms. McPherson created the AAC when she was staff to Ms. Donna Gerber, District 3 Supervisor.

We should expect our current supervisor to continue the community agenda for discussions with all governments as part of the Alamo Community Council. There are two issues that delay that result, 1) there in no participation invited by the majority in neighborhoods within our region and, 2) there is little opportunity for the community as neighborhoods to set the agenda for discussions with all governments.

An appropriate first step would be to post your priorities for agenda discussion in this forum and provide those priorities to Ms. Gina Ferretti, gferr@bos,, for acknowledgement.

As a CDSI community courtesy,

How wrong you are!

Alamo Community Council meetings are meaningless events conducted by District 3 staff that is unprepared to address real issues or to allow their discussion. Anyone that has attended these meetings since our supervisor unilaterally stole the Alamo Area Council from us knows it is the intent of the supervisor to simply control discussions of all issues in Alamo.

ACC is a political event and a waste of time.
