Debating with a Chair?

HOA WOULD NOT RESCHEDULE SEPT. 8 FORUM FOR MAYOR SANTOS
Most month's San Leandro Mayor Tony Santos holds Coffee with the Mayor where residents can voice concerns and ask questions. What about a Candidate's Forum without the Mayor?

A scheduled Sept.8 candidate's forum at the Marina Community Center may be missing the man whom everyone wants to unseat. The 7 p.m. forum may not include Tony Santos for the entire program. The mayor says he informed the organizers of the event two months ago he was scheduled for a city event at the same time as the forum, but the homeowners association president refused to reschedule.

Having a debate without the person whom the other four candidates for the job are trying to replace seems to be a waste of time. Santos now says he may be a little late to the event.

Is the President of the hoa supporting an opponent of the mayor and is that maybe why he scheduled it when the mayor would be performing official city business.

Oh yeah, Sand-toes has "a city event". What kind of event Sand-toes???? Something where you're going to get paid a per diem for showing up?

One of the presidents putting on the debate is a supporter of Starosciak.
