Here are some things, learned by myself and others, at the Alameda City Council meeting on March 1st.
- The city council continues to treat its staff in a way I find weirdly antagonistic
- Whenever a council member uses the phrase "Real World", what they mean is: "You researched presentation means nothing, city staffer. Alameda is different."
- Appropriate means you make funds available for. Those funds can be taken back, especially if they aren't spent
- The Mayor and City Council are maybe really underpaid?
- Alameda cares about golf way more than I thought it did. Like, an hour and half more than I thought it did.
- I don't understand Councilmember Daysog's long-term strategy for Alameda
- Councilmembers Ashcraft and Oddie seem like people I would enjoy hanging out with
And, the big one
- Alameda now has rent stabilization.
