Polling and focus interviews are demonstating the issues of CCC machine politics south of Diablo Road and throughout the Tri-Valley. Popular candidates such as Mark DeSaulnier and Joan Buchanan face significant questions for their involvement in CCC district 2 and 3 races. Questions about candidate support, with focus on Mary Piepho, often an antagonist in the Vasco Road/580 corridor, brings community and neighborhood group objections to Mark's and Joan campaigns. That concern in neighborhoods forums is spreading north into all of districts 2 and 3 serving opponents interest in stopping Mary and bringing new candidates in both districts.
This is a big story partly displayed on this forum with more to come as news services feature the issues and the detailed backgound. It brings the question of "why is Delta region politics such a major interest in the 24/680 south corridor?"
