In an article in the January 8, 2006, edition of the Daily Review, some District 3 residents complain that former City Councilmember Glenda Nardine was unresponsive. Bonaire Civic League President Virginia Boepple is quoted as saying, "We could place phone calls to her and they were never returned, so we looked to someone else for information. ... We just never had any contact with her." In her defense, Nardine writes, "To state that I wasn't that visible is truly an insult." Joan Maramonte, president of the Floresta Homeowners Association, also disagreed and said that Nardine "always gave me an answer." Diana Souza, who replaces Nardine in the District 3 City Council seat, made communication one of her campaign platforms.
Nardine was subject to term limits after serving two terms on the City Council, ran for County Supervisor in the June primary and came in fourth behind winner Alice Lai-Bitker, former San Leandro Mayor Shelia Young and Jim Price.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at January 8, 2007 9:08 AM | TrackBack
