Raise your hand

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:07 am

There were quite a few notable items on Tuesday night’s agenda but if this doesn’t sum up the pandering of Councilmember Tony Daysog in one short agenda item, I don’t know what else will.

Let me set up the scene. The agenda item was on the SAFER grant. The SAFER grant, for those that don’t know, is a federal grant to help fund public safety. The budget had already been approved by the City Council, unanimously, which means that this funding was already allocated in the budget. Voting against it would mean the City would have to find the difference in the reserve or some where else.

This was the end of the meeting so things were moving really quickly.  A motion was made and seconded early and the vote was taken which was also unanimous until….

They realized that they had a public speaker so they had to undo the vote and listen to the public speaker first.

The public speaker was none other than the guy whose life goal appears to be spending his days attempting to recall Malia Vella.

So after he spoke, the vote was taken again and guess what?

Tony Daysog abstained.

In case Tony Daysog tries to claim he didn’t cast a vote for the first motion, here’s him RAISING HIS HAND to vote yes the first time around.
