Bonta Hosts Alameda Town-Hall Meeting

Alameda City Councilman Rob Bonta, now serving as vice mayor of the city, is hosting a discussion and meeting with residents to exchange ideas regarding his first 100 days in office.

There will be a question and answer session as part of the forum.

Members of the public are invited to come to the meeting, which is set to take place from 6-8 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, March 25, at Cardinal Point at Mariner Square, 2431 Mariner Square Dr.

Light refreshments will be served, and Bonta asks that resident RSVP for the event, if possible, by sending an e-mail message to rob@robbonta.com.

Bonta says that he was a strong supporter of the recently passed school parcel tax, Measure A.

The city faces a number of significant challenges, including the need to fill top posts and come to grips with lawsuits filed by interim City Manager Ann Marie Gallant and City Attorney Terri Highsmith, who were placed on paid administrative leave in December.
