We received the following statement from Tony Daysog:

I was the Student Body President of Encinal High School in the Spring of 1984 when I helped bring the first jet (A-4 Skyhawk) onto the front lawn of Encinal. Over the years, I have had the honor of helping our community in a number of ways, as a past Councilmember, Economic Development Commissioner, and military base closure commission member.

I am running because I see a City Hall that has lost touch with the common Alamedan, focusing instead on the needs of the fire union and developers. I want and envision an Alameda where we are not over-building: our infrastructure (e.g. Posey Tube, Island Drive, and Park Street Bridge) is incapable of handling extra traffic loads. I will help Alameda achieve this vision by employing my city planning professional experience in an effort to work for a slower, safer, and economically-sound way of life.

I have a Master’s degree in City Planning Planning from UC Berkeley, where I also earned my BA degree. Thank you for your consideration. http://www.daysog.com
