Earlier this year the Berkeley city council voted 5-4 to close a swimming pool in a district represented by a council member disliked by most other council members.
Apparently two of the council members who voted to close the pool, did so because they didn’t want to hand a victory to the council member they didn’t like, who’s in the middle of a tough re-election fight.
That’s according to the Daily Cal. Interesting read.
Nevertheless, just because Berkeley is prone to dysfunctional politics doesn’t mean that would happen in Fremont if it had district elections.
If Fremont always followed Berkeley, there would be naked old hippies in Central Park, undeoterized Green Party members at City Council meetings and a Whole Foods somewhere on Mowry.
