Like best about Alameda?
The people. People are very supportive. When my wife died last year all these people took care of me. I got a lot of hugs.
Would like to change about Alameda?
The traffic! It’s really changed. And about a year ago I started noticing that every time I came downtown, where could you park? Parking is horrible.
Word to the wise
Too many people are too concerned with what they look like and what they have. I have things, but I’m not a materialistic person. I don’t need the newest, the greatest and the latest. If the car can get me from A to B, that’s what I need. People and friends and family–that’s what really matters.
