HOA WOULD NOT RESCHEDULE SEPT. 8 FORUM FOR MAYOR SANTOS
Most month’s San Leandro Mayor Tony Santos holds Coffee with the Mayor where residents can voice concerns and ask questions. What about a Candidate’s Forum without the Mayor?

A scheduled Sept.8 candidate’s forum at the Marina Community Center may be missing the man whom everyone wants to unseat. The 7 p.m. forum may not include Tony Santos for the entire program. The mayor says he informed the organizers of the event two months ago he was scheduled for a city event at the same time as the forum, but the homeowners association president refused to reschedule.

Having a debate without the person whom the other four candidates for the job are trying to replace seems to be a waste of time. Santos now says he may be a little late to the event.
