Out-Of-Towners Grow Increasingly Desperate Trying to Influence Our Election

Sacramento Lobbyists Care Not a Whit About Emeryville 
As the Sacramento based California Association of Realtors and National Association of Realtors invade Emeryville with their NO on Measures U&V campaign, spending their $85,000 with their endless campaign flyers, robo calls and now illegal advertising truck driving around our town with its broken tail light clogging up traffic; we're wondering what comes next?  We don't know but we imagine it won't be good.  It's been a relentless campaign from these wealthy and faceless lobbying groups exasperating Emeryville residents but it's probably a sign of desperation on the part of these out-of-towners.
As you wait for the next shoe to drop from these outsiders that don't care a whit about the fortunes (or misfortunes) of our town, here's something to consider: The people and organizations that DO care about Emeryville are united in support of Measures U&V because they know we can't thrive as a community with half our budget taken away when Sacramento crashed our Redevelopment Agency as it recently did. We're going to continue to grow our town, increasing livability for the residents no matter what these anti-government, anti-community extremists say.

We DO care about Emeryville-

  1. If this truck is still toodling around town, why doesn't EPD arrest or fine Jason Crouch?
