Looking to get a handle on your candidates for City Council? Our own Donna Eyestone will be livestreaming the Alameda Democratic Club's endorsement forum starting at 7 tonight. You can check it out on The Alamedan's Ustream channel at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-alamedan.
This fall, school district leaders will begin a public discussion about Alameda's public school facilities, including the future of Historic Alameda High School. The historic campus has had identified seismic issues since 1935 according to an engineer's report commissioned by district administrators, but school leaders have been unsuccessful in their attempts over the years to raise the money needed to retrofit the buildings despite the desire of many residents to see them fixed up. So The Alamedan is asking readers: Do you want to see the school district find a way to fix up the buildings for reuse, or should they tear the old campus down and erect something new in its place? Let us know what you think by taking our poll, and feel free to expand on your answer in the comment section below.
