Many of you attended the public meeting on April 25, 2018 at Alameda Hospital and the June 20, 2018 meeting at ReMax. As you recall, we discussed the formation of a PAC to endorse candidates for the upcoming Alameda City Council / Mayoral elections. Our shared goal was to create a Council voting majority that will support the welfare of Alameda residents, and reduce the influence of outside special interests such as public employee unions and real property developers. A Committee of volunteers from Alameda is moving forward with forming A Better Alameda PAC. The ABA committee is now working with the declared candidates to select those we believe will fit into our mission statement. Candidates that we believe A Better Alameda can support will be presented on this website, including information for ABA's decision to support them. Only those candidates listed on this site have received ABA's support for the Alameda City Council.
After the candidates have been selected, ABA will conduct an independent campaign to support the endorsed candidates. Our support for these candidates does not expect loyalty from them as they exercise their responsibilities as Alameda City Council members. We expect independent decisions based on the facts of each issue that comes before the City Council.
ABA is a citizen supported PAC. ABA will require funds to support campaigning efforts and welcomes contributions. At this time, please donate by check to A Better Alameda at 2201 Shoreline Dr. P.O. Box 2683, Alameda, CA 94501. A PayPal option will be added as soon as possible.
Contributions to A Better Alameda may become public information. Thank you for your support as ABA works for a better Alameda City Council. Contributions must also include the following information: full address, occupation, business name (company name if self employed) or if retired.
Planned actions will be posted here in the future. Right now we are working with the candidates to complete the ABA questionnaire so we can determine which candidates ABA will be supporting.
