From the November 26, 2004, Investors Business Daily:
Be careful out there!
Did you know that former Oakland Raider (1996-1999) Kenny Shedd is now a San Leandro policeman? Neither did I. He joined the force in 2002 and you can read about him in the Sacramento Bee article.
San Leandro teacher Chad Crittenden fell victim to a gender-based alliance and was voted off of Thursday night's Survivor by a vote of 6 to 2. He was one of two remaining men on the latest season of Survivor, held on Vanuatu in the South Pacific. Chad becomes the second member of the jury, the group of seven survivors that will decide who gets the $1 million prize.
As you probably know if you read this site, Brian Copeland has had an enormously successful run at The Marsh, with his one-man show "Not a Genuine Black Man." It has been extended yet again to November 27, 2004, so go see it if you haven't yet.
The November 7, 2004, edition of the San Francisco Chronicle has an article by Joan Ryan about Copeland and his monologue. As reported previously, Rob Reiner is working on deal for a show and a book may be in the works as well.
Stephen Cassidy was the only local candidate to unseat an incumbent, beating out Kenneth Pon with 59.5% of the vote for the At-Large seat on the San Leandro School Board. Incumbent school board member Linda Perry retained her seat with 53.8% of the vote.
City Council members Tony Santos and Surlene Grant retained their positions while Joyce Rutledge Starosciak will face a runoff against Mike Mahoney to take over Bob Glaze's council seat (Ms. Nardine did not run).
Measure DD barely won a majority with 50.7% of the vote and Measure EE won with 61.2% of the vote. However, Measure DD failed to pass, since it requires a 2/3 majority.
At the federal level, Pete Stark easily kept his Congressional seat while Johan Klehs handily won election to the State Assembly.
