What is Up with All the Dutra Backed Candidates for This Election?

This November when we have to elect a new Mayor and City Council, it looks like the same old usual suspects that are backed by the Dutra family of residential home developers. Take a look at Anu, Bill, Sue and especially John Dutra, Jr. They all are being backed by John Dutra Sr. Is it because, they all are willing to push for the 3800 homes to be planned into the Warm Springs BART extension? They all say that they are for business growth but their records show residential growth with no real regards to building an infrastructure for business. Take a look at our public schools and you can see the overcrowding. Why do our current Mayor and City Council let this happen. And they still want more housing built?

Recently, at the September candidate public meeting, these Dutra- backed candidates for Mayor, Anu and Bill didn't waste time to leave once their time was done. They didn't stay to listen to the City Council candidates. Once the City Council candidates were done, do you think John Dutra Jr. stayed? Only the non-Dutra- backed candidates like Steve Cho and Vinnie Bacon actually took the time and listened to the School Board candidates that followed after them.

It seems that Dutra-backed candidates actions clearly showed their lack of caring for others. I haven't seen these Dutra-backed candidates take the time to go to community events that aren't supported by a union or some large special interest group that could benefit them. It seems the non-Dutra-backed candidates like Steve Cho or Vinnie Bacon, take the time to go and meet the people they represent and really listen to them.

As a long-time Fremont resident, I am tired of the same old political machine (Dutra) that has made this city into a sea of homes without a true business friendly environment and stressing our educational infrastructure. It is time for a new approach and thinking. That's why I would suggest you really need to consider who you should vote for this November.
