6 months ago, I received less than 30% of the vote in local Alameda election. I clearly speak for the people of Alameda when I write to you about our problem with squirrels. having received almost one-third of the vote, I have earned a right to define the issues in town and declare which residents love or don't-love, our beloved island city. I'm a former citycouncil candidate afterall!
It's time for people who love Alameda to stand up and denounce those who don't love Alameda. I'm talking about the squirrel lovers. Sure they have cute bushy tails, and their chit-chit-chittering can be oddly calming, but these menaces of our beloved greenspace have got to go! Anyone who disagrees with me is clearly in the minority and on the take from the pro-squirrel lobby, though I'm sure some are just plain stupid.
I urge all Alamedans who love their town to attend the next council meeting and tell those know-nothings on the council to "Keep Trees Away." Who are these elected officials to think that they represent everyone?
