    Good campaign by all three mayor candidates . I’m surprised to see Anu get third place. Anu needs to stop being a sore loser and learn from this experience.

    11 other current and retired Bay Area Mayors were able to figure out how to confirm their (largely) symbolic support of an ounce of common sense. To be clear, my version of common sense = high capacity magazines on long-guns make little sense for any kind of hobby or sport. For whatever reason, Bill H. couldnt figure out how to get his name added to the list.

    “Gus Morrison, former mayor of Fremont, also signed the letter. Fremont’s newly elected mayor, Bill Harrison, said even though his name is absent from the letter, he too supports tightening firearm possession laws.”

    Whether you agree with those who signed or not is not my point. Let’s not start the gun debate on this one post, OK? What IS the point is that “leaders” take a clear position on IMPORTANT issues.

    What is disconcerting is that, in one of his earliest opportunities to act as the Mayor of our community, Bill H chooses a response that is somewhere in between. . . . . .

    Did Bill subordinate the very difficult topic of gun-related violence to his personal desire to avoid a politcal hot potatoe? Did he take exception with the specific requests of a letter which 11 other Mayors found completely reasonable?
