Appearing on Hardball with Chris Matthews Friday, East Bay Rep. Eric Swalwell described his hometown Dublin, Calif., as a “working class town.” (Listen above. Duration: 0:41)
While “working class” typically carries a more gritty, common, working person connotation, does the moniker fit with the image of the leafy middle-to-upper class east county suburb?
Working class means your average blue collar worker could afford a home in that neighborhood. Is that possible?
He is absolutely correct-he grew up in a working class town-that was then. It sounds off right now but as a long term resident I can say Dublin has changed dramatically (as has the whole Bay Area)
