That shit’s embarrassing

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:06 am

It takes a really special kind of person who can say a baldfaced lie and not flinch or display any sort of evidence that they’re lying.

Trish Spencer, who refused to withdraw any of her, largely, moot referrals doubled down on the need to get an “update on purchase of license plate readers”

Literally that’s all the referral asks for:

She then has the absolute gall to say that she was not on the City Council in March of 2021 when the motion was made to discuss license plate readers. I mean…as Councilmember John Knox White pointed out, she made the motion to bring back the issue of license plate readers and it was only due to his vote that she had a third vote to talk about the issue further. Receipts:

As pointed out by John Knox White on Twitter on Tuesday night, there was a prospective date on the June agenda of when the issue would come back and the “date” is all Trish Spencer insisted that she wanted on Tuesday night:

But even though there was a date proposed in June of 2021, there was whole ass meeting in December where the City Council discussed ALPRs as well and gave direction that the issue would come back at the end of January or February.

Real talk here people, if you saw this level of sheer incompetence and lack of intellectual rigor in Georgia or in Colorado you’d be shaking your heads and scoffing at the rubes who voted for a Lauren Boebert or Marjorie Taylor Greene. But because some “lifelong Democrats” in Alameda get their pet issues pushed by Trish Spencer they’re happy to support and lift up Alameda’s very own ignorant elected official simply because she says all the right things to enough people. Mostly those right things are the words “no” but for some folks who have very particular axes to grind, that’s enough. Some of y’all elected someone who can’t even bother to remember what meetings she’s already attended, what motions she has made, what issues have already been discussed, and when she was actually seated on the City Council.


  1. As you start off, it takes a special kind of person. Trish knows full well, but her game plan / ego(?) will not let her ever ‘fold’. She keeps repeating a line ..maybe until she thinks it is true, but even more so people think she is ‘fight for …’ them / the truth / against the establishment.

    By now everyone should know to question Trish’s ‘alternate truths’.

    The other thing during this and next item was the use of the term “… with all due respect … ” …. but that is for another post.

  2. Lifelong learners know how to be wrong, how to seek the truth in partnership and collaboration, and they make great leaders. Trish is none of those things and does none of those things.

  3. Our very own Rudy Giuliani! “The truth isn’t the truth.” Trish Spencer absolutely is not a leader, but a bureaucratic saboteur.

  4. Trish is either the dumbest Alameda council member ever, or top 5. Too much alcohol, too much stupid. What the hell is wrong with Alamedans electing an obviously stupid person to council? Obstructionist assholes, Daysog and Trish. Absolute morons. Sure, Trish is an attorney,….a very stupid attorney.

  5. Spencer’s dumb, but she must have compromising photos of Daysog.
