For those that have not watched the entire unedited raw video of Mayor Trish Spencer talking about the UMA, you’re missing out.
You already saw the video of her talking about how unsafe the schools are, but that was just a snip of one of the many takes it took to get her to articulate what she loved about the City of Alameda.
You know the City she was elected to serve by a 120 vote margin.
Look, I get it, some people just aren’t that articulate. I mean, I hate public speaking. I hate speaking into cameras. I hate anything that would put my physical being into the public eye. That’s why I don’t do meetings, I don’t meet with people, and I don’t run for public office.
But some people love being in the public eye, they love people, attention and Trish Spencer is one of those types of people. And she’s been around in the Alameda community service realm for a long time. So you think it would be easy for her to spit out a few lines about why she loves Alameda. Who knew it would be so darn hard.
It took Trish Spencer six separate takes to explain what she loves about Alameda. Six. Separate. Takes.
At one point she literally just shrugs and offers “the views?” as a possible answer as though this is some random ass version of Family Feud and she’s being asked for the top six answers.
I would be sympathetically embarrassed for her, but then I remember I didn’t vote for her. And for a hyper local blogger, she’s a content dream come true.
