ABA Endorses Trish Spencer for Mayor and Tony Daysog & Paul Beusterien for City Council!

We Need Your Donations NOW to Order Advertising Prior To Ballots Being Mailed on October 10th! 

This year, we will elect a Mayor and at least two City Council Members. However, If Trish Spencer is elected as Mayor, the third place finisher for City Council will be elected to complete the council term of Trish Spencer thru December of 2024.

Our endorsement of Trish Spencer and Tony Daysog is consistent with our support in 2018 and 2020. Our decision to endorse Paul Beusterien came after interviews with him and other candidates for Council who made themselves available to us. Jim Oddie was not considered as we have consistently opposed him.

We recommend that you review Paul Beusterien’s website. You will find that his views are consistent with that of ABA. https://www.paulb4alameda.com/   Trish Spencer’s website is at https://www.trish4u.com/  Tony Daysog’s website is pending. We encourage you to visit their websites and attend any future candidate’s nights and other election events.

This will be our third attempt to replace the current majority on City Council with a new majority that is more responsive to the views of most Alamedans. With John Knox White not running for re-election, we have a real opportunity to get a new majority on Council and make some real improvements in the current direction of the City. The current majority’s attempt to massively increase density throughout all of our residential zoning districts despite voters rejecting Measure Z is a stark example. Another example is their vote for draconian changes in our Rent Ordinance that controls rents in excess of State law.

We believe that ABA plays a critical role in campaigning for our three candidates as a new majority slate, especially with six candidates running for two Council seats.

We ask you to contribute any amount you can afford to our effort and to do so now because ballots will be mailed on Oct. 10, so we need to commit to media expenditures early in September.
