I spoke face to face with my old friend Lou Bordisso, at the first candidate forum at the Empress Theater.

He has forgiven Anthony Summers and has a rapport with him.

Some people may not realize that when Lou ran for school board he wrote a letter to the Times Herald about his concern of Summers and other Vallejo religious groups proselytizing in our schools.

There was a candidates forum at Anthony Summers church and Summers led a modern day lynching of Lou. I was there and I jumped up and hollered "enough" at the point when the audience of church members began to yell at and jeer at Lou.

Now if Lou Bordisso can get past this, and he is a prominent Gay man, why are people like Gazaway using this as fuel for their lopsided fire?

The answer is because they are desperate.

The alignment of this angry group of local Gay with VIB sets the Gay rights movement back on its ass.

The VIB candidates have no chance of being elected no matter what garbage is dug up, twisted and thrown at the other candidates!

Vallejo gays have more to worry about than Tony Summers and the Dominionists. Check out this Catholic group from Napa Institute 2013 Conference, Napa California. http://youtu.be/QvH7NBAK89g

the point is lou bordisso is exhibiting a willingness to look to the greater good. he does not appear to be threatened by the extremist views expressed by some of his neighbors. gays have nothing to fear if tony summers is elected. tony stands for jobs, more jobs, and more jobs after that. we can't allow our community to erode endlessly waiting for that "something better". if you have something better right now, put it on out here. platzer speaks of jobs, verder-aliga speaks of jobs, malgapo, dew, right down the line, jobs, jobs, jobs. the community is not looking for more meetings and fiscal watchdogs, jobs, jobs, jobs, hellllo?!

It would be a real crusher for the anti-Summers crew if Lou were to post a LTE regarding healing instead of continued division. Yesterday we had a the Tunisian president visit and only two elected officials showed up for Vallejo. Completely embarrassing, shameful. His message was not about hate for gays, but of hope for our city.

I like Lou, although I don't know him personally. I voted for him based on the short conversation I had with him during the election season when he ran. It was my feeling that he would bring a calm, reasoned approach to policy decisions and I like that style. He also understood the importance of job creation for the under class in this town.

Hope you are well Lou, all the best.

Former Vallejo political candidate advocates for those with Alzheimer's

On many days, Lou Bordisso of Vallejo gets stumped trying to remember the word he wants to use.

Sloughed off as ordinary forgetfulness for most, for him it's a reminder of the disease that permeates his mind and body -- younger-onset Alzheimer's.

Two years ago Bordisso, a former candidate for both the Vallejo City Council and school board, received a diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

Since then, Bordisso, 59, has embraced a new mission of raising awareness of Alzheimer's -- a progressive disease which leads to profound memory loss, and other mental and physical deterioration.

Most associate Alzheimer's with aging, but younger-onset affects people mostly in their 40s and 50s. Up to 5 percent have younger-onset, or about 200,000 Americans, according to the Alzheimer's Association.

Alzheimer's is associated with dementia, an umbrella term which includes other ailments involving confusion and memory loss.

Bordisso's goal is to generate understanding about Alzheimer's and "maybe offer an alternative option or way of looking at (the disease) and putting a different face on it. The face that most people put on Alzheimer's is someone who is a bit older than myself and there's just not that much information" about younger-onset, he said.

Bordisso serves on the California Alzheimer's Advisory Committee and in the Alzheimer's Association. He's attended advocacy forums in Washington, D.C., contributed to online blogs and told state and federal lawmakers his story.

On Saturday and on Oct. 6, Bordisso will speak at Walk to End Alzheimer's events in San Francisco and Sacramento as part of many such walk-a-thons.

As a volunteer advocate and member of the Alzheimer's Association National Early Stage Advisory Group, he said he also hopes to change how others view those with this disease. He is also intent on advocating for more research and better treatment, encouraging volunteerism, and raising money for a cure or better medication to control symptoms.

He said he was fortunate to be diagnosed early and put on medications that help keep symptoms at bay. "It gives me some hope that there will be some medication that researchers will discover," he said.

Bordisso said learning he has Alzheimer's gave a name to problems he had been wrestling with at work and in managing his personal finances.

Since then life has changed dramatically for the retired priest in a small Catholic reform group who ran for City Council in 2007 and the Vallejo school board in 2009.

Three weeks ago, Bordisso had to stop driving. He must now use taxis and public transportation to and from his home on Mare Island, which has no bus service.

"My whole life has been turned upside down," he said. Two roommates, plus a caregiver (or care partner), provide companionship and help at home, he said.

Earlier, Bordisso stopped working full-time as a mental health provider for Contra Costa County where he advocated for those criminals found not guilty by reason of insanity. He said he is still trying to find a way to work part-time.

Bordisso said that before he was diagnosed secretaries noticed he had trouble with written reports, making presentations and testifying in court.

"I couldn't function in the same way because of the dementia," he said.

Much time since the diagnosis has been spent navigating life insurance policies, long-term care planning, Social Security, state disability insurance and health care.

Besides his work for the Alzheimer's Association, he also regularly travels by train to Sacramento to visit his father, who has dementia and is in a care facility.

Bordisso said plunging into Alzheimer's advocacy work gives him hope and strength.

"This gives me a sense of purpose also gets me involved and knowing about the latest medical advances," he said. "I'm kept in the loop and that's quite empowering," he said.

"It also gives me a chance to give back," he said.

“Here's a interesting thought..”

Forgave him for what? Am I getting this right that you are admitting right here in topix that Summers is an anti-gay bigot? Even if he did forgive him, so what? Now that you've confirmed it, doesn't mean I have to forgive him. Thanks for the information, Sam.

Some in the LGBT community, in addition to young people who don't know any better, use the word "bigot" like a hammer. If you're trying to gain friends and supporters, I'd say you are going about it the wrong way.

If you do not support civil rights for all people under the constitution and would limit rights based on classes of people, then yes, you are a bigot. Period.

Don't like it? Too bad. Take it up with the Supreme Court. Your discomfort with the word is not anyone else's problem but your own.

Coincidence how the homophobic responses to this and other threads as well as the fake Lou Bordisso alias are all posted from Emeryville?

I know for a fact that Bordisso doesn't use this site. He also told me face to face that Sam Kurshan was a sick man and scared him. Nice try, but no one's buying it. Leave an ill person alone and quit trying to use for your own perverted agenda.

LOL. jim, exactly what is it in anon's post that leads you to make the determination that the poster is "emotionally unstable" and needs to "seek help"? do you believe, like summers, that "emotionally unstable" homosexuals can be "converted" to heterosexuality? and, yes, summers is a bigot.

So when prop 8 passed, the majority that voted in its favor are bigots. Is it unconstitutional or illegal to be a bigot?

Don't like it, take it up with the Supreme Court. Maybe you can incarcerate the segment of the population that does not support the LGBT lifestyle? But then, who would be left to tax for medical support to keep the LGBT lifestyle to continue to "evolve"? Hmmmmmmm, quite a conundrum?
