If you still live on the Garden Isle of Alameda, you know that today is an Election Day. While PlayBall! – Alameda’s Sandlot Blog has but one agenda – preserving the legacy of the Alameda Recreation & Park Department’s amazing youth programs and the countless happy memories of former park rats everywhere – the editor (me) feels it’s important to urge you to get out and vote!
Take a moment to better understand the critical issues that will significantly impact Alameda’s future. Regardless of where you stand on Measure B, the important thing is to go to the polls and vote.
I recall Larry Wayne telling me about the day that the backstop at Estuary Field was torn down. I don’t know the reason why, but I do know that a lot of people were impacted by that decision… and not in a positive way. None of the kids who used that rocky field on a daily basis had a say in the matter. No one gave them a vote.
Today you have a vote. Please use it.
The preceeding message was paid for by the editor, who is not running for anything. (But I would like a float in the 4th of July Parade… a convertible with Kevin Kearney?… a bicycle?… roller skates and a small sign?… never mind. Just vote.)
