Heraldo has some details.
Here’s the report on the study itself.
Pat Higgins is not seated until January, and Heraldo thinks there may be a rush to some sort of vote on the matter beforehand. I know a few progressives stuck by Roy Curless in this last election, on the basis that his representation might evolve into some sort of swing vote based on a clear lack of mandate for his prior positions. Let’s see how it plays out tonight.
In the meantime, a turnout by some of those supporters tonight wouldn’t hurt.

Dublin’s city council voted to bar what appears to have been a big box proposal, although the article doesn’t name any particular company. The article references an earlier ban of Wal-Mart by Livermore. We’re not talking about refusals of variances, but all out bans.
Meanwhile, Pleasanton just voted to bar a second Home Depot within city limits.
At a meeting last night, the council asked Regency Centers to consider courting smaller businesses, such as book stores and gourmet grocery stores, for their proposed 200,000-square-foot shopping center in eastern Pleasanton.
Even though a majority of the council members granted preliminary approval to the development with the big-box retailer in May, they admitted Tuesday they were persuaded by more in-depth economic and traffic analyses to do a 180 degree turn.
The economic analysis indicated that while Home Depot would benefit financially from a second location in Pleasanton, given the future opening of a Lowe’s in Dublin, the city and the community would not.
These aren’t liberal strongholds, at least not traditionally.
