Kudo's Salthe, Anthony & Willie for "exposing" these small-town political-shenanagens Read Moreby our inept/incomp Mayor, City Manager, City Council, & City Council members who now want to "increase our local/city Pinole's Taxes again" (to pay for all their mistakes, lawsuits) or threaten us w/cutting public services ie loss of 1-2 police/firemen, etc!) I concur w/Salthe Plumber, yes, it's way-past the time to "Change/throw-out all those dirty, stinky, blood-money sucking DAIPERS/POLITICANS OF PINOLE, NOW if not ASAP!!!

Willie. Pinole is the Dysfunction Junction. The management here succeeeds when they have theRead Moreoversig ht and supervision of any Governmental body that is further up the Food Chain (County, State, Federal). They are wasting taxpayer dollars at an unprecedented rate, fighting the State over Redevelopment $$ and the PERB lawsuit appeal is also a big drain. Our legal costs have soared and with not much to show for it... The lack of leadership in Pinole is astonishing. Nasty politicking is not leadership...

If any here think Lac Magantic can happen here, think again. I counted about 180 oil tanker carsRead Morep assing Hercules waterfront within 1 hour in December. The cars were so heavy the ground shook. More heavy oil tanker cars passed last Sunday, they were so heavy on the tracks, making mighty noise, tracks shared by Amtrak! We have no idea what is in those tankers. We can guess if it is oil that it is bad because we already ran out of the good stuff and are using the bad stuff because it is cheap to acquire. The railroad/oil companies are not currently required to tell us. The railroad has rights that supersede any local government, presently. Both the cities of Richmond and Berkeley have made resolutions calling for a moratorium on the transport of Braken Crude/tar sands in their cities, and are pursuing measures to compel the Federal Government to monitor the transport of hazardous materials and prioritize safety for the citizenry. There has been a 400% increase in oil by rail in the pass several years, resulting in oil spills across America, almost weekly, polluting the water supplies of millions of citizens, farmers, wild life, you name it, including the largest fresh water lake and source of water for 7 million, Lake Michigan. That is the price we are paying as our sources of fossil fuel and its productions gets dirtier and dirtier, and the oil and gas industry conspires with our government to remove and investments in renewable and clean energy including solar and wind! By the way, natural gas is not the answer either because it is emits more methane than coal, and fracking to obtain it has destroyed aquifers, produces radioactive waste (not currently be properly monitored or disposed) and may contribute to instability in the earths crust stimulating earthquakes even in places that have never been prone to earthquakes.

correction -I meant: If any here think Lac Magantic CAN NOT happen here, think again.
