Alamo neighborhood forum participants are engaged is campaigns by neighborhoods throughout Contra Costa County to start county reformation with the replacement of all supervisors. The Alamo Region is specifically cooperating with allied community forums in Brentwood/Byron (Disccovery Bay), Dougherty Valley/Blackhawk, Danville/San Ramon, and Walnut Creek to promote our planned introduction of candidates for District 3 Supervisor.

Among our neighbors are individuals that will be public campaigners for change including supporters of Guy Houston. We encourage Town Square Forum readers to support their candidates with commentary on the issues of this campaign:

1 - Local community planning as repeal of the MAC changes and establishment of the community-funded SuperMAC.

2 - Limitations of the powers of supervisors and establishment of grand jury authority and responsibility to review supervisors' actions in opposition to community advisory.

3 - County fiscal status and long-range impact of lower revenues and higher costs for community services.

Post your thoughts but protect your identity. Campaigns can get emotional and intimidating.
