|An Update from Grace

Incorporation lost on March 3rd, but Alamo is still the same desirable place to live it was on March 2nd, and, with work, hopefully Alamo citizens will be able to keep it that way.
I want to thank you for your support for both the incorporation effort and for my campaign. With your support, I garnered the largest percentage of the vote for Council candidates. If incorporation had carried, the first Town Council would have been comprised of myself, Steve Mick, Vicki Koc, Randy Nahas, and Bob Connelly -- the same team endorsed by the Contra Costa Times and the San Ramon Valley Times.
I am hearing people say that the incorporation movement generated a feeling of community and connection with people in Alamo that we didn't experience before. I have experienced that feeling myself, and I think it will not go away! Walking door to door, I have seen more and learned more about Alamo in 2009 than I knew in my 24 years of living here. Meeting more Alamo residents and getting to know more of Alamo was a wonderful experience for me and will enrich my life in this beautiful community.
There is the thought that incorporation was rejected because we are all very happy here! For decades, when Alamo residents have seen unwelcome changes to Alamo, they have made their feelings known to their local government. It is important for the future of Alamo that we continue to make our feelings known.
