One thought on “City Council Briefing: Alameda and the estuary pirates

  1. Alameda 6C. Are the folks who complain members of the Friends of Crab Cove? Think about all the money that was wasted on that ridiculousness. These are likely the same folks that worry about the Homeless. Think of the conspiracy of the Homeless Pirates who cruise on their boats to steal from the docks. What a waste of the taxpayers buck.
