I just read about the city of Hercules hiring a SECOND school resource officer to patrol their schools. Hey Mayor, how about pulling some of the millions of dollars you spend each and every year on arts programs and the library to add at least ONE school resource officer to OUR schools! While you are at it how about more police for Rossmoor where burglaries to homes have skyrocketed.

SR, you seem surprised. Our mayor has no opinion on illegal guns. There is no reason to think any other public safety issue would matter to her.

I read the "state" for this city the Mayor presented, in The Times. A "city commissioned" report indicated 96% of us think the quality of life is "excellent or good" -- suggesting job performance on par with Sadaam Hussein's... This probably says something about "city commissioned" reports as tools. Contradicting this inferred approval, the number for unincorporated WC is undoubtedly higher. We all enjoy blue skies, good weather, great schools, low crime, friendly neighborhoods, and a bunch of other things totally eclipsing arbitrary governance. Who takes time to respond to such surveys? Probably the same people who took time for the Mayor's presentation: Bald guys. Preferably, bald guys from elsewhere, who are capable of enjoying whatever gets presented. There was scarcely anyone in the audience under seventy, or still with hair! This is the constituency she panders to: I like Cindy, she said "hi" ... No need for school safety officers or to condemn gun clip capacity that allows any psychopath (1) to threaten a school. We need library for bald guys. Theatre for bald guys. Art for bald guys. And, most importantly, housing downtown so we can import more bald guys to walk to art and library. This last part is known as GP2025. Unfortunately, Ms. Silva's vision contradicts everything it means to be from WC. Ironically, the largest constituency "from" WC, children, can't vote. They rely upon the responsible adults who've moved here to joyfully fail them.
