Express writes about Fremont race/A’s

The East Bay Express had a story this week about how the Fremont mayor’s race could affect whether the A’s come to town. To read, it click here.

The only two assertions in the story that I would disagree with are 1) That Cho is more conservative than Wasserman. They almost always vote identically, at least over the past year; and 2) That John Dutra wields tremendous influence in Fremont. It seems to me that since losing the State Senate race two years ago, and Torrico’s rise in the Assembly, Dutra’s clout has waned. Doesn’t mean he can’t rustle up a lot of money for his slate, but if this were “Dutraville,” his candidates would have locked up more endorsements.
