As I read these letters, especially Paul's, I see repeating lines that have been placed in incorporation proponents releases over and over again. I also see the same focus on opponents, by name, and the character assassination in absence of real information and position commentary.
Alamo region residents are not ignorant in their opposing views and are passionate about the best proposal for Alamo's future. What we fear is the relationship among the politicians behind the Alamo Incorporation Movement, as AIM, with county and LAFCo that will produce a local layer of government that has no responsibility to Alamo Region residents. Paul doesn't seem to realize AIM is Martinez politics combined with the selfish interests of a small political minority in Alamo that is proposing five council members to decide our future.
If the politicians we have seen at AIM meetings, in print, and on TV are to be that independent council then Alamo residents have no future other continuing politics as usual in Contra Costa County.

I agree with Jennifer that Alamo residents are not ignorant.
Therefore, they also clearly understand that the Alamo town council will be ELECTED BY ALAMO RESIDENTS!
The town council will therefore be directly responsible and answerable to the residents of Alamo and not to some far-off overpopulated bureaucracy.
The myth of a "local layer of government that has no responsibility to Alamo Region residents" is just that - a myth.
I have great respect and confidence in the power of the ballot box, both to elect AND reject persons to represent Alamo. It is a shame and highly unfortunate that some people do not respect well-established electoral processes...
