District 1 San Leandro City Council Candidates at Second Candidate Forum

The District 1 San Leandro City Council candidates met at a second forum on Thursday, September 30, 2010, to make their case to San Leandro voters. Former Oakland School Board member David Anderson is seeking to unseat incumbent San Leandro City Council member Michael Gregory. Gregory was elected to the City Council in 2006. The forum, sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce, was held at the Marina Community Center.

Here are the candidates in their own words:

Opening statements:

What is your reaction to the headline story in the San Leandro Times about the recent rash of robberies in the City and what do you think is the solution to this problem?

What specific plans do you have to identify and secure sustainable funding to open and operate the senior community center?

More after the break.

What is being done to bring new large companies to San Leandro? What type of incentives would you recommend you offer?

Do you feel Measure Z could have a negative impact on our City? Might big ticket items such as cars be purchased in other cities, thus decreasing revenue?

What are San Leandro's plans for electric vehicle charging stations, specifically the Callan Start Garage Project?

Closing statements:
