Berkeley City Elections

I have only two points to make about the Berkeley City elections, from the perspective of The Patio:

1. Vote for Chris Worthington.

2. Vote AGAINST Tom Bates.

Worthington has only learned about our problem in the past week or so, and has already met with the City Manager about trying to get an administrative exception to allow us to stay open until 10:00pm. He asked me to give him a couple of weeks to see whether jumping through hoops is required.

Bates knew about this problem from Amita, who he met on a visit to Treasure Island Job Corps Center and who first broached the subject with him. He asked for follow up, so I sent a fax that detailed the issue we face about making a living under such weighty restrictions. Not only did he do nothing, he did not even call or write to say he would do nothing.

So how come an Assemblyman can do so much so quickly, and the Mayor can do so little and take so long. Because the assemblyman is working while the mayor is hondling (you may need to look that one up).

Vote for Chris Worthington!
