ALCOD1: Haubert, in email, said he would limit county programs related to abortion

Alameda County Board of Supervisors District 1 candidate David Haubert wrote to a prospective voter last month, that as supervisor, he would seek to limit abortion-related county programs, and, instead, focus on alternatives such as adoption and education.

ALCOD1 logo“I am opposed to abortion in general. As an elected leader I must obey the law of the land. However, as county supervisor I will not seek to expand it in anyway. In fact, I would like to limit our current programs,” Haubert to the unknown voter in an email dated Jan. 25. He added a preference to securing partnerships with faith-based organizations.

Haubert confirmed he wrote the email in an interview following last week’s candidate forum in Fremont.

The email was poorly written and not reflective of his overall stance on abortion, Haubert said. “Not everything sounds exactly the way it’s meant to be. Things need to be clarified and refined. I get it,” he said.

“I would want there to be some balance given to alternatives like adoption. Abortion is the law of the land. I’m not going to change that. Do I like the fact that it occurs? I would rather it not if we can avoid it. Am I going to take away the right for a woman? Absolutely not. I’m pro-choice,” Haubert said. “Education is also key. I would like education to be accentuated.”

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors does not directly oversee funding for abortion, but it does control large amounts of funding for health care services for many low-income women and their families.

Haubert said he was aware his email was being passed around among supporters of his three opponents in the evenly-matched four-person Mar. 3 primary.

Suggesting he will be one of two to advance to the November runoff, Haubert said of the email, “I’m sure it will come out in November after the primary. I’ll be well-prepared to address it. I’ll have many women by my side saying, ‘He’s a good guy.”

  1. Diane,

    He represents the majority of Dublin I am sure, and certainly has the support of President Trump and Scott Haggerty and his supporters, or jock straps. I would say this is a joke except Haubert and his kind are not funny and need to be ushered out of office as soon as possible. He deserves a last place finish and lots of indebtedness. Maybe he will move to Texas.

  3. Haubert will do well in Texas or Missouri but I suspect that he has just cut off his campaign at the knees. Anti-Abortionists do not do well in the Bay Area. Perhaps he will come out in support of Gun Control, requiring Creationism in school, banning sex education & allowing vaping in Dublin.
