You asked, they didn’t answer

That’s all folks, yes it took forever to get through all the questionnaires, but I thought that each person who actually filled out the questionnaire deserved their day in the spotlight since these questionnaires tend to get all shoved on a page even though the candidates put so much time into completing them.   However, there were a few out there that did not complete the questionnaire.

Who are these slackers?

City Council candidate profile: Joana Weber

Filed under: Alameda, City Council, Election — Tags: , , — Lauren Do @ 6:05 am

Joana D’Arc Weber is running for City Council.   She did not submit a Candidate Statement and there isn’t a lot of information out there about her.  She doesn’t have an official website or even a Facebook page about her candidacy yet, which always makes me a little wary and bit nervous about the candidate.   While I get that running for a local office really shouldn’t be a huge expensive endeavor, the very least a person can do is to place a candidate statement about themselves in the voter guide so that there is some information about the candidate.

She did provide some information to The Alamedan for a larger City Council candidate post:

Almost final City Council questionnaire

So a couple of weeks ago I asked folks to help crowdsource a questionnaire for City Council candidate. Ooh, speaking of City Council candidates, yesterday I received some info that one of the City Council candidates might be out of the running:

That’s right, it’s not official official yet (aka there have been no press releases out of the campaign yet) but it appears that — from the rumors around town — that Beverly Johnson is dropping out of the race.   So, if true, it could be that she simply realized that she was done with the City Council.   Early rumors had reported that she was no longer interested in serving.   But now with the wrench thrown in with her appointment to the Office of Administrative Law, perhaps it has something to do with that.  I mean, the commute would be pretty hellacious.

Anyway, back to the crowdsourced questions.
