San Leandro Council Candidate's Online Comments Rile City's Asian Population

ELECTION '12//SAN LEANDRO DIST 4 | A San Leandro city council candidate is running the risk of alienating the city’s largest demographic, after online comments Aug. 14, since removed, riled Asian American community leaders who now question the candidate’s trustworthiness as a potential city leader.

During the final days of the Summer Olympics, District 4 council candidate Chris Crow posted and responded to a published report quoting Chinese officials who questioned the fairness of its athletes competing against American athletes because of their alleged larger head and chest sizes.

“The Chinese have said they should NOT have to compete with Americans at the Olympics because Americans apparently have bigger heads and broader chests,” Crow wrote on Facebook. “So I suppose they really were cheating in 2008 when they took home more Gold medals than the USA or they are the sorest losers in the world.”

The posting quickly came to attention of several Asian American community leaders who say they were outraged by the assertion Chinese lacked integrity and good sportsmanship. They also questioned whether Crow’s candor revealed discriminatory tendencies.

“When someone coughs up something like that, the heart and mind is discriminating,” said San Leandro resident Ed Collaco.

Another San Leandro resident, Derrick Gee, said he found the comments offensive and states the article Crow references in the Facebook posting includes no suggestion of cheating or bad sportsmanship on the part of Chinese athletes. “I can only believe that these ideas come from his racial despisement of Chinese as an ethnicity,” he said. “For one to be so bold to post on Facebook tells me that he has no fear to show his racist heart.”

Chris Crow
In an email last week, Crow claimed the outrage concerning his posting was concocted by Benny Lee, one of his District 4 opponents this fall, and is unclear how they could be interpreted as racist. “I am disappointed that Benny Lee is seemingly trying to bait me. I would like this campaign to be about the issues. If anyone other than Benny and his supporters are bothered by what I said, I hope they'd come to me and share their views--but as I was making light of the ridiculous statements by the Communist Party mouthpiece in the linked news story I am not sure how that could be interpreted to be anti-Chinese or racist,” Crow said.

As far as representing the Chinese Community, my pledge to them is the same pledge I make to /all/ San Leandro residents. I will look at issues carefully, I will reach out and solicit input from all segments of the San Leandro community, I will analyze all proposals in detail and I will always keep in mind our shared goals of making San Leandro a great place to live for all San Leandrans. I cherish that San Leandro is one of the most diverse cities in the country, and I want to see us be a model of a multicultural yet united community.”

Hendy Wijaya, one of the most vocal members of the Asian American community in San Leandro, says Crow should withdraw from the council race because of the original comment and response from Crow, which he found lacking remorse. “He is accusing every Chinese in the world of being cheaters,” said Wijaya. “If you want to be a city councilman, you should be a person who represents everyone, but this guy is discriminating against the people he wants to vote for him.”

The race in District 4 is shaping up as a potentially lively debate between Lee, the president of the Heron Bay Homeowners Association, Crow and newcomers Darlene Daevu and Justin Hutchison. Even before Crow’s comments this month, his opponents were already ramping up attacks questioning his abrupt move to District 4 earlier this year, despite making strong signals he would run in District 2 against Councilwoman Ursula Reed. However, following a very public rebuke by Reed, who dropped him from the city’s planning commission, Crow moved to District 4 where an open seat is for the offering. Hutchison, who is a lifelong resident of District 4, has already raised the campaign issue, alleging his opponent is a political opportunist without "morals."

Nevertheless, Crow’s comments risk alienating nearly one-third of the electorate this November. San Leandro’s Asian American population grew to 29.7 percent, according to the 2010 Census, and the city as a whole, maintains one of the most equally diverse cities in the entire nation. However, San Leandro's City Council has failed to keep up with its changing demographics. Despite a Latino and Asian demographic that encompasses a majority of the population, neither is represented on the current seven-member council.

Stupid is as stupid does. It is time to cut your losses and drop out Crow.

"bigger chests and heads"

No wonder we don't do as well in the diving.
Those big heads and chests cause a much greater splash upon entry.

Oh, the San Leandro controversy. Much to do about nothing, unless there is not much else to do nothing about.

Crow must be related to Lisa Brunner from HUSD.

Lisa,
Hey stop picking on my bro yous all.

Unemployed and makes racist comments on FB. How would one generate jobs if they themselves cannot hold down one?

Racist!! How does it feel to have just lost??

After Chris Crow made such racist comment on his own Facebook post, Chris Crow not only has no re-morse but also instead pointing finger at Benny Lee. How Benny Lee bait or concoct you - did someone forced you to write: "Chinese are cheaters and/or sorest loser in the world". Chris Crow is not man enough to take on his own consequence!!

1. Why Chris Crow not working, in between jobs, or unemployed?
2. After Chris Crow was dismissed/fired by Reed as planning commissioner, why/what are his intention moved from District 2 to run city council in District 4?

I just could not believe Chris Crow could be such a character - put blame on others to cover up his own misconducts.

If anyone should be called anti-Chinese it is the Chinese spokesperson who doesn't believe Chinese athletes can achieve as much as any other athletes in the world. Shame on him and any of the San Leandro Chinese community who supports that communist rhetoric.

This is NOT someone I want representing me in District 4. He is an ignorant bigot, who has no place representing our city in any fashion. He should move again, this time OUT of San Leandro.

Right, that Chris Crow is so SHAMELESS and UNFITS from all angles and places.

There's no place in San Leandro for intolerance and Crow's blaming others for his actions is reprehensible. Apologize to the Chinese for your insolence!

Chen

Chris Crow,

What was in your mind to write: Chinese are cheaters and sorest losers in the "world"?

Born in USA

If anyone should be called anti-Chinese, it is Chris Crow who says the Chinese are cheaters or are the sorest losers in the world. SHAME ON HIM!

I, Chris Crow, live in a world called San Leandcrow where I'm the only person who matters. Vote for me because I helped a little old lady across the street just so I could tell you about it later. Love me some Chris Crow!

I, Chris Crow, must win, no matter what it takes!

"...I was making light of the ridiculous statements by the Communist Party mouthpiece in the linked news story..."

And thus, you make a blanket statement against an entire population. Classy.

I don't really understand why he didn't just express his thoughts this way if he meant it this way. In your search for some formulation of damage control, must you now place the blame of your mistakes and ignorant verbal concoctions upon an individual running against you? Frankly, you've made it quite clear you see an entire racial and international community...as inferior.

This saddens me. This disappoints me.

I'm saddened to know in this day and age, ignorance and segregated thoughts still live among those chosen to represent us.
I'm disappointed in your inability to see how your judgment and thoughts here were offensively incorrect.
This is the root of ignorance.

"Benny Lee is seemingly trying to bait me."
Hah. Good one.
Honestly, take responsibility. If you can't carry responsibility for your own mistakes, I can't see how you can possibly take responsibility as a public representative for a city of diverse, multicultural individuals of varied backgrounds.
This is not okay, so please, don't make it sound like it is. In doing so, you drive your insult far deeper than one should ever intend. If you have any sense of shame, you've blatantly surpassed it.

Before focusing on said "issues", focus on generating a tolerant perspective.

Before focusing on said "issues", focus on gaining some fundamental instinct of responsibility.

It's all very simple. Figure it out.

Ryan

Its pretty simple just come out and say you F'ed up and made a stupid comment. a little accountability will go a long way...

I hear ESPN 2 will be telecasting a new sport from China. Chinese Nude Kick Boxing. Check your local listings.

Chris Crow Nude kick Boxing in San Leandro, check your local listings.

Chris Crow, what is your intention and message commented on Facebook that Chinese are cheaters and sorest losers.

Our family: three generations in United States of America

Our great grand parents worked in railroads

2nd generation worked in farm fields and laundrymat

3rd generation as equal as everyone in the United States of America.

We are melting pot, as I was told.

Dear Chris Crow,

Please join me for a prayer. You will learn the meaning of love and accountability in your soul.

Chris Crow accountability from District 2 to District 4 to District 6, and etc.

Chris Crow is the commissioner of Chinese Nude Kick Boxing

How quick everyone is to accuse point fingers and instantly be divided amongst each other. I wonder who this "story" bait is really for and who got caught.

Are we all ready to stone and convict a person without speaking to them directly about an issue ?

Wake up you are all being manipulated

I contacted Chris Crow and he offered the statement. That's my role. I did the work for you.

Chris Crow just lost one vote!!

Steven Tavares verified/confirmed with Chris Crow indeed Chris Crow wrote comment on facebook stated "Chinese are cheaters and/or sorest losers in the world".

Lily

Steve, is Chris going to go pro with the Chinese nude kick boxing thing?

Agree with Hendy Wijaya 100%

Hendy Wijaya, one of the most vocal members of the Asian American community in San Leandro, says Crow should withdraw from the council race because of the original comment and response from Crow, which he found lacking remorse. “He is accusing every Chinese in the world of being cheaters,” said Wijaya. “If you want to be a city councilman, you should be a person who represents everyone, but this guy is discriminating against the people he wants to vote for him.”

Is the quote seen below, the only actual quote from Chris Crow?

"“The Chinese have said they should NOT have to compete with Americans at the Olympics because Americans apparently have bigger heads and broader chests,” Crow wrote on Facebook. “So I suppose they really were cheating in 2008 when they took home more Gold medals than the USA or they are the sorest losers in the world.”

I'm sorry folks, but those statements say nothing about people who are ethnic Chinese being cheaters, but rather that the nation of China may have been cheating because even though they claimed to have a disadvantage, they still managed to win more gold in 2008.

For example in 1972, the Germans cheated, and it has been officialy proven. It has been 100% proven by the East German release of the old records. So to say "the Germans cheated" is not the same as saying either Germans cheat...and/or therefore German Americans are also cheaters.

While Crow's comments were unwise, I cannot see anywhere where he suggests that Chinese people cheat. Clearly he was refering to the nation of China's 2008 Olympic team.

But guess what. I don't think those posting against Chris Crow really care to see the truth.
They have latched onto a good "hot" theme that he foolishly gave to them.

Just don't over-play this "Crow hates Chinese" theme, because careful examination shows your claims to be false if one goes back to the actual meaning of the quote.

So, I declare both sides to be at fault here.
Not that unusual.

BTW, China does cheat, as do many other nations.
Have you completely forgotten their use of "under-age" female gymnasts?
They finally admitted to that deception.

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/olympics/2010-04-28-olympic-medal-underage-gymnast_N.htm

They had to GIVE UP the Gold medal from the 2008 Olympics.
So Chris Crow had part of it right.

Or is revealing that truth also racist?

China cheats. Chinese people are not cheaters.

Does anyone care to make that distinction, or are you all off to the races with your talking points and can't admit the truth.

"“He is accusing every Chinese in the world of being cheaters,” said Wijaya"

Can someone point out the quote where Crow says that "every Chinese in the world" are cheaters?

Please supply a quote that indicates that.
Or is everyone trying to imply that without any real quote from which to draw that conclusion.

Come on now, don't be shy, lets back up these charges of "racism" which are so easy to cast about.
Or are we operating on Al Sharpton standards here?

Is Chinese Nude Kick Boxing going to be in the 2016 olympics?

Isn't Hendy the same person that filed an FPPC complaint against Cassidy before the 2010 election (http://www.ebcitizen.com/2010/10/fppc-complaint-filed-against-cassidy.html)?

This seems like manufactured political outrage by political opponents rather than a substantive complaint.

Clearly, Chris Crow is NOT TOO BRIGHT.

He has been bragging about his NEW IDEAS - so this is ONE of his BIG NEW IDEAS.

Chris, I don't love you anymore !!!!!!

Ms.O

Is someone trying to say Crow's comment has to do with Cassidy.

Crow must face the consequence of his own action, and it was veriified with Crow by Steve Tavers, writer of this article

Gosh, I hate bigots who try to make this sound justified, as if there's NOTHING wrong with racism. Prejudice is prejudice. Some people just don't get it.
Buddy, you straight f'd up.

Mel

I'm heartened to see the Zocolo crew is back. Let's not forget some of the same Asian Americans outraged over Crow's comments also staged a boycott in 2010 against the venerable San Leandro coffee shop as do the San Leandro PD.

Dang Chris. I almost had your back too. As a Latina and person of color, I don't see how you're okay with this. So racist.

J. Garza

It is so sad to see someone has no remorse for his own actions, and instead playing victim saying other people accused him wrongly.

I, Chris Crow, am never wrong. I'm sorry if you think what I said is racist, so let me give you the opportunity to listen to me tell you why I'm not racist because I like to hear myself talk because simply saying sorry is only one word.

IF above comment truely from Chris Crow, just stated: HE NEVER WRONG so HE'S PERFECT

Steve Tavares,
Exceptional piece of journalism on a very delicate topic! You explored the ramifications of Crow's actions thoroughly. Thank you for educating me about the population of San Leandro & how the demographics are not reflected in San Leandro City Council. Great point!
You substantiated all of your assertions with facts and quotes. This is a story that is critical for the voters to hear. Thank you for your efforts to educate the public about the truth behind the scenes. Crow's racist statements speak for themselves. No one else is to blame. It is clear that he does not have the capacity to act in the best interest of the Asian Community. To blame another Asian city council seat competitor for his own words is ludicrous.

Chris, you ruined the harmony of our community as you want to represent!

Citizens of San Leandro

Clearly this thread is now being loaded up.

Being that as it may, will someone please point out the sentence where Chris Crow says Chinese "people" are cheaters.
Meaning Chinese people anywhere are cheaters, as opposed to the nation of China possibly cheating in the Olympics.

I may have missed that part. Please point it out.

Chric Crow, explain who are the sorest losers in the world in your comment.

I sure hope Chris turns pro in Chinese Nude Kick Boxing!!!!!

Hey Chris Crow, don't be shy, now is your chance to point out "who are the sorest losers in the world" in your comment.

Waiting!

This is so pathetic and lazy of everyone screaming bloody murder. READ THE ARTICLE that Chris commented on. It was the Communist Party of China that stated that Americans were difficult to beat because of their genetics. If anyone is racist, its that spokesperson.

Chris was restating the position and making the argument for why it was a faulty statement. His choice of words were sarcastic but had no malicious nor racial intent. But the backlash is just stupid. Get over yourselves.

What would all these commenters say if Chris was actually Asian...prolly should do a little better background check before calling someone racist against their own culture

Hey, Chris, it might be a good time to start that No Asian food diet you've been meaning to start. Be wary of the next pork bun you bite into, my friend.

Pathetic: Chris Crow is hiding underneath a chair, can't speak for himself!

Lazy: Who is not working and currently unemployed!

Sarcastic choice of words is GOOD practice for representatives for San Leandro communities?!

these accusations are absolutely ridiculous. i read the article as well as chris' comment on it. sounds to me like chris is proud to be an american. he said nothing racist about Chinese people just restated what they already said about themselves. and if supporting your country is racist then count me in! go team USA. oh and yea im asian! peace

WHERE IS THE PROOF THAT BENNY LEE WAS BEHIND IT ??

"Crow claimed the outrage concerning his posting was concocted by Benny Lee, one of his District 4 opponents this fall,......"

PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN FAULTS !!! NOT POINT FINGER TO INNOCENT PERSON.

and if this is really your tactic thats absolutely pathetic! lmao.

Drew: don't you think your elected officials should be held to a higher standard?

There are much more than just what Chris wrote at the first place. Which are he put blames to others after the outcrys, especially make things up try to damage his election opponent so viciously and shamelessly.

"Crow claimed the outrage concerning his posting was concocted by Benny Lee, one of his District 4 opponents this fall,......"

So, I see, this Chris Crow's tactic thats absolutely pathetic! point finger and blame others after his rude and offensive comment.

Pro USA, am Asian-American with a right to vote!

thank you drew and steven for having enough nuts to put your name by your opinion. everyone else needs to grow a pair.

Chris Crow's campaign manager Marga Lacabe will have a statement as soon as she is finished eating.



Didn't know need to grow a pair to vote.

Ms. Julie

I am just curious he is 28 without a college degree and without a job and he is supposed to be leading the way in charge of our futures. Take all the racist crap away you have a young man hellbent on becoming a career politician,
With Zero qualifications:-)

Talk about over-playing a card.
This entire thread is a prime example of folks taking a point and making themselves look absurd by gross exaggeration

The fact is that Chris Crow put all the blames of the community's outcry to Benny Lee is NOT an "GROSS EXAGGERATION" interpretation from the public.

It is an unbias obervation in black and white.

Good points of questioning Crow's qualification of leadship and his integrity

I think he is more fit for BAR-Hopping to get scored, instead of hopping from District to District try to get elected.

Crow was fired from planning committee by Ursula Reed in District 2 - Crow afraid of Reed - thinks he can bully folks in District 4.

Why Crow got fired? Couldn't him just blame others to stay out of troubles ?

Let Chris Crow answers the questions above. An opportunity for him to talk.

************NEWSFLASH************

Chris Crow propose ways to create jobs, but he still remains unemployed.

Hey everyone I'll be driving my wagon around San Leandro on Friday night (full moon) so everyone hop on the wagon, and don't forget your pitchforks and torches. I will be driving you to the library so you all can check out critical reading/thinking books and maybe a book on humor.

9:56 please back up your claim of his unemployment with a credible source.

Guess no "Bar-Hopping" for him since he is unemployed. Remember- No Money No Honey.

But he is welcome for the hay ride to the library for some books of SELIMPROVEMENT.

AND PLEASE BACK UP YOUR ACCUSATION TO BENNY LEE!

"In an email last week, Crow claimed the outrage concerning his posting was concocted by Benny Lee, one of his District 4 opponents this fall..."

Hendy Wijaya should sit shotgun on that wagon ride.

As one who does not live in SL, this entire orchestrated thread is certainly the most absurd I've yet to read on EBC. Thus far I don't see a post that doesn't appear to be part of a campaign that is out to discredit Crow.

In the time you've spent here, do you really think you've swayed any voters, or do you assume that all SL voters are naive idiots and can't see what you are doing.
Seems like the work of very a very amateur political team.
If I lived in SL I would vote for Crow just because of this stupid thread.

One wonders if this attempt is being done by any particular group, ethnic or otherwise affiliated.
Its almost embarassing in its transparency.

If had $20 I would bet you live in Alameda where a vocal subset of the community are particularly naive about politics. It's the majors up here in Alameda County, it's not warm and fuzzy happy rainbow of simple platitudes.

If you came across this from a potential city councilman, you wouldn't question it? San Leandro has always been infected by these sorts of comments and a certain segment of the community, not necessarily older residents, still spout this kind of stupidity.

I would suggest not making conclusions about my news sense until after the election and start looking at the world through others eyes. These stories are not created on the fly, but thoroughly thought out. You don't know what's in my notebook.

So you are affiliated with the "professional political team" discredit ethnic groups and minority.

Power to you, professional

Crow just received a vote from a professional political member that lives outside SL.

Chris Crow wins a gold star for the worst set of political instincts in the East Bay as quoted.

Good thing for Crow every candidate in San Leandro EBC has tried to discredit has been elected recently. He just got the EBC bump

Uh, the 12:21 comments by me were NOT directed at the original article, but rather the manner in which the subsequent posts were made in some madcap piling on. With the notion that if we make the same comment 20 times intead of twice, then surely the SL voters will believe it.

As for the original article I allow for a wide degree of latitude in putting forth controversial news and ideas. That is why I read and enjoy this site.

However, as in this case, what followed was more like some high school tag-team match.
Simply put, the protests of the posters was over the top. In the final analysis the piling on distracts from any serious consideration of the actual facts.

Crow, with his remarks, seems not ready for prime time, because though a careful reading of what he actually said may not reveal racism, he certainly gave his enemys a wide door to drive that theme through.
His remarks can be read two ways.
There has been cheating by the Chinese Olympic officials. They have had Gold medals taken away from them for that cheating. That is a fact.
On the other hand, that has nothing to do with the idea that Chinese people are cheaters, whether they live in China or in California.
The earlier East German Olympic officials engaged in wide spread cheating over many Olympics. That in no way suggests that Germans, in Germany or elsewhere, are cheaters.

Anyone who can't distinguish between those two ideas is not making a serious attempt to see both sides.
Most of the posts in this thread are doing just that because apparently they are trying to discredit Mr. Crow.
I know nothing about that individual other than the few limited quotes that are attributed to him in the orginal article.
Those can be read in different ways depending on what one sets out to believe.
Clearly most of the posts here are made by people who have set out to make Mr. Crow look like a racist.
Having no need to believe such about Mr. Crow, I read the quotes in a neutral manner.
He may be a incompetent jerk, with no business running for city council, however I fail to see absolute unquestionable racism in his remarks, as quoted in this article.

I have asked for anyone to give me any quotes, missing from this article that indicate Mr. Crow is racist against Chinese people or anyone else, but thus far nothing other than the limited quotes seen in the article have been put forth.

Perhaps someone will provide additional "proof" of his suggested racism.
The few limited quotes in this article certainly don't fit the standard needed for such a charge unless one is dead set on "conviction".

In carefully reading the article, Mr. Tarvares never says Mr. Crow is a racist or that his comments are racist.
Go back and read the entire article.

He may be a incompetent jerk, with no business running for city council

1:53 AM If that were true, and I have no information on that, then it would probably only make him similar to most of the other candidates in that race.

1:59AM Careless of who you want to make or vote in that race.

Ask 1:38AM why quoted: He may be a incompetent jerk, with no business running for city council

I am not of Chinese decent and I find the comments made by Chris Crow to be insensitive, degrading, and definitely racist to 1) the chinese community, 2) anyone else who has experienced discrimination, or 3) any person, for that matter, who cares about others.

This candiate, Mr Crow, has no place to represent a culturally diverse City such as San Leandro. This candidate, Mr. Crow, has no place to accept campaign contributions from the Halus Wind Turbine Project; some (like Mr. Crow) who do not read the fine print will quickly jump on the "green" band wagon and support a project that threatens the health and safety of San Leandro residents, threatens the endangered species along the San Leandro shoreline, and threatens to make San Leandro the birth place of a series of shoreline wind turbines along San Francisco Bay. In an August 24, 2012 entry on Chris Crow's face book page he states "Thank you to Lois Rigaud and Halus Energy Systems for your contribution to my campaign".

To run for City Council, you must care about your community; and you Mr. Crow obviously do not. You have shown your true colors through your racist words and unethical actions of accepting campaign contributions from a project (Halus Wind Turbine) that threatens the health, safety, and enviroment of San Leandro. By the way Mr. Crow, be sure to tell Halus Energy Systems to spend their money on completing and environmental impact report for the proposed wind turbine project, rather than spend their money to buy your City Council vote of approval on their project.

And now Chris Crow's campaign manager, the fat slob Marga Lacabe, who is so disgusting her husband is never seen in person with her, is blaming Benny Lee and Tony Santos for her candidates ignorance on her facebook and blog pages.
Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black.
Chris Crow is an immature person not qualified to run for office.

Whether he gets elected or not, that does not change the fact that he is a dick, who over advertises common deeds every citizen does, is a political opportunist who moves into an area just to get elected because its and easier race, Makes innapropriate comments about chinese people, is unemployed, did not finish college, etc..so on and so forth... If you feel out of your population of 85K is the best person to represent you then go for it. I believe Mr. Tavares was just reporting the news, its up to the public to do what they want with it.

This thread is hilarious. I don't live in San Leandro, but I have asked and asked for any of the vehement posters to please give me the specific offensive quotes that are suppose to show racism.

Mr. Tarvares never says the quotes are racist.
Reading the quotes I don't see that they are racist.
The only place that suggests they are racist are the "other" folks quoted in the article

And then HERE in the comments, all the hyped up people, except that NONE of them will point out the exact quote that shows Mr. Crow to be racist.

I'm telling you, you all put Al Sharpton to shame when it comes to cooking up, and being fast on the trigger, with allegations of racism.

One wonders who you think your audience is?
Do you think the average reader coming here is a idiot who can't see what you are trying to do with your tiny shreds of "evidence"

OK, one more time. Give me the precise quotes that show Mr. Crow to be a racist.
Explain how each sentence shows such.

Amateur hour seems to be in play.
Have a backup plan for when the public sees the charges as lacking substance.

I await those quotes from any of you willing to say something other than shouting "racist"

"So I suppose they were all cheating in 2008" "and are the sorest losers in the world"

I think having Chris' mommy speak for him like when Ursula kicked him off the planning committee would turn this all around.

I, Chis Crow, as a native son of Mongolia, believe I am able to discredit 3 billion people because I am one of you and also thank you windmill guy for the donation to my campaign. I'm for whatever he wants.

10:52, Sorry Pal, but that isn't even the quote from the article. Try to find the word "all" in the quote.
Go read it and try again, then I'll give you my reply.

BTW, "they", used as it was, does not refer to Chinese people, but rather the Chinese Olmypic team and or Chinese Olympic officials.

No more than saying Americans have cheated in the Olympics, while at the same time NOT saying Americans are cheaters.
Surely, even in your need to demonize Crow, you can see the difference.

For example, from the 2000 games, American sprinter, Marion Jones cheated and her 3 medals were returned.
In 2004, Tyler Hamilton cheated and his gold medal was returned.
No one was saying ALL Americans are cheaters.

Going farther back, East Germany and Russia clearly cheated. At the time it was a team effort.
Yet when we now know that as a historic fact, we don't say Germans and Russians, the people, the ethnic group, are all cheaters.

Your selective reading of those quotes has everything to do with your need to try to turn Mr. Crow into a "racist"...
However the actual quotes indicate nothing of the sort, UNLESS you are appealing to only the most dimwitted readers.
Is that what you consider the San Leandro citizens to be, dimwitted?

I AM STILL WAITING FOR CHRIS CROW TO ANSWER MY PREVIOUS QUESTION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-----------------------------------------

PLEASE BACK UP YOUR ACCUSATION TO BENNY LEE!

"In an email last week, Crow claimed the outrage concerning his posting was concocted by Benny Lee, one of his District 4 opponents this fall..."

I say 10 to 1, 11:39pm is Chris Crow posting as anonymous

Question Gee: How did you find out what Crow said on his Facebook page?

And Tavares, who contacted you with the story?

Yeah, me too is waiting for Chris to back up his accusation to Mr. Benny Lee.

12:48, "I say 10 to 1, 11:39 is Chris Crow posting as anonymous"

I'll take that bet, how can we arrange it.

How about I put up $100 and if you are wrong, you owe $1,000.

BTW, 98% of all posts are anonymous in case you hadn't noticed.

I find this completely insensitive. I am not from Chinese descent, but how can someone not see this as a sweeping generalization of a people? Furthermore, I have nothing else to say.
Continue using your racial privilege as a point for putting others down. If that's fine with you, no one's stopping you.

And for all you dipshits trying to say some are too sensitive towards racist remarks or in need of "growing a pair", get some education. I'm sure folks also once thought those against slave trade were too sensitive too. I'm sure folks also thought those for women's rights were too sensitive. If you know what it's like to be discriminated against or have been mistreated for your race or gender, you know. "Grow a pair"? You're probably a man. Typical. You're so ignorant, I cry for bigots like you. You're a dirty embarrassment. Shameful and shameless all at the same time.
Grow a pair? No, grow a brain, asshole.

1:03 PM, you mention "grow a pair" 3 times.

In a search, it appears that ONLY 1 lone poster used that term in a disparaging manner.
Yet you come here and accuse everyone else of such a attitude.

It strikes me as exactly what you complain about in your first paragraph, a "sweeping generalization"...

You also need to be more careful and selective when attacking others.

We've been infiltrated by Marga Katz-Lacabe-Katz. She wants to advertise her little blog here. However, that is against policy. For her to do that is like a very small startup company running on the field with a banner advertising their business during the World Series.

Let me tell you about Katz-Lacabe-Katz: I get queries about her from politicians all the time and I tell them the truth. She is uninformed. Only plays a lawyer on TV and is non-compliant in taking her daily dose of medication. She is someone even her "allies" cannot trust. For example, earlier this year, she called Mayor Cassidy a "liar" during public comment.

She's small town and unimportant and quite frankly the sorest loser in the world! In fact, I would rather have Joel Young coldcock me in the temple or receive a backrub from Jesus Armas than listen to her speak crazy.

A pair sorest losers in the world = Marga-Crow

Jeez I hope the 'Anonymous' posters here who are bashing Crow over this non-issue are NOT actually San Leandro residents.

Sadly, they probably are.

Bet 99% "Anonymous" posters here are from Crow - self advertisement.

3:35
Yeah sure. He would figure it was a smart move to spend a lot of time and energy bashing himself...or something.

"...pot calling the kettle black..."
No that's racist right there.

One brief quote on Facebook with multiple possible interpretations by any reasonable reader, and suddenly we have a person's entire life described as "racist".
Amazing what little minds can do with such scant information.
Then these same folks complain about people being racist...which is itself a form of judgement based on not knowning the person, but only judging them from superficial observations.

Seems like two sides of the same coin being displayed here.

Crow as a native son of Asian-American, believe he be able to discredit 3 billion people because he is one of you and also thank you windmill guy for the donation to my campaign. I'm for whatever he wants.

Tons of 20+ years old windmills from San Leandro Marina along the shoreline to San Francisco Bay, Bay-O-Vista has good wind too, Crow is here to serve.

3:56 Wednesday's Word-of-the-Day "hyperbole"

Hilarious notion that anyone would be a sycophant to a barely known candidate for a SL City Council district seat. Now, perhaps to a sitting mayor or state legislator, or a congressman, but to a city council candidate... laughable

Have to go back to that Word-of-the-Day, hyperbole

City council candidate, Crow, has no place to represent a culturally diverse City such as San Leandro. City council candidate, Crow, has no place to accept campaign contributions from the Halus Wind Turbine Project; some (like Mr. Crow) who do not read the fine print will quickly jump on the "green" band wagon and support a project that threatens the health and safety of San Leandro residents, threatens the endangered species along the San Leandro shoreline, and threatens to make San Leandro the birth place of a series of shoreline wind turbines along San Francisco Bay. In an August 24, 2012 entry on Chris Crow's face book page he states "Thank you to Lois Rigaud and Halus Energy Systems for your contribution to my campaign".

Double words-of-the-day: obsequious;sycophant

I don't know much about Mr. Crow. But just for the sake of argument, lets say his comments were inappropriate. OK, and say he is 35 years old (I have no idea).
So in his entire life, is there a single additional example of anything he has ever said or done that could even remotely be interpreted as being "racist"?

Or is the single interpretation of a single quote, the entire case against him? Sending him to a life of remorse and shame for eternity.

Just wondering, perhaps he is a repeat offender.
Or I suppose he could just be hiding all this racism and that one sentence leaked out such that the gotcha crowd pounced.

One sentence. I'm sure nothing was ever said by any other local politician that could ever be interpreted as questionable.
Lets all think...

Oh, how about Cruz Bustamante. Is he still on your "racist" list?

What about Jessie Jackson...racist? Hymietown?

I'm sure the examples are endless but then again probably half the posters here don't even know about the examples I refer to.

I don't want Crow to be sad for his entire life, we all make mistakes and learn from them.

I will forgive him if he willingly and sincerely with an open apologize for using wrong choice of words that created an offensive statement.



Why all the Hoopla people? This shouldn't come as a surprize to anyone who knows this fake wanna be small town politician. He's friends with Dillman enough said. Dillman's already been exposed. SL needs to rid its self of clowns like them. These idiots are trying to keep SL like its was in the 80's. My grandparents told me stories of these type of people in SL. SL has come to far to be held back by these two. Vote against the two of them. SL needs real diverse leadership.

Yes, San Leandro in the 70's was very pretty - like sausalito.

Used to be San Leandro was "the white island" between Oakland and Hayward

You mean getting convicted of resisting arrest isnt a good quality?

11:44pm This is serious stuff, Can we verify with the police department of Crow's record of arrest - like public records.

Let's meet the dawn with mercy and grace. We've all said and done regrettable words and deeds. I hope that Chris Crow learns and grows from this experience. I also hope that he will examine his conscious and unconscious feelings about Chinese people to release any negativity, if it exists. As many young people feel, Chris believes he is ready to fill a role where clearly a higher maturity level is required. I hope he has the insight to acknowledge this fact. I hope he can allow himself the time to develop more wisdom borne of time and experience to become the public servant with a gracious and open heart for all San Leandrans.

Crow posted on facebook on August 24, he took contributions from Halus (old technology tubine company) that directly hurts the communities in San Leandro.

Crow not listening to the communities' concerns that we want to preserve San Leandro beautiful shoreline - no windmills to kill our beautiful birds, no sore eyes windmills standing on beautiful San Leandro where we stand.

Crow again,publicly posted on social media against the San Leandro Citizens bragging he took money from the windmill guy.

Crow doesn't show any maturity haven't acknowledge the insensitive choice of his words that no one twisted his arm posted on social media.

Crow still continue showing a defensive attitude in bullying sytle together with is campaign manager, Marga Katz-Lacabe.

Crow continue point finger at others of his own responsbilities of his choice of
words created a hurtful, offensive statement affecting the communities of those feel being violated by his bad choice of words.

Crow posted on social media in his own choice, spreading his own choice of actions - no one twisted his arm, once again, it was his own choice.

We need to find out what's up with possibility of being arrested on the record with the police department.

Very Concern San Leandro Citizens!

Bullys are not welcome, and not allow in San Leandro communities

CROW AND HIS CAMPAIGN SUPPORTER AKA CAMPAIGN MANAGER "NOW TALKING ABOUT FACEBOOK PERSONAL ACCOUNT PRIVACY".

MARGA KATZ-LACABE, DO YOU WANT TO SEE YOURSELF ON ARTICLES INCLUDING NEWS OF HOW MANY TIMES YOU TAG AND POST YOURSELF AS SAN LEANDRO TALK WITH DISGRACEFUL, BELITTLING, AND CONDESCENDING REMARKS, ACCUSATION NAMES CALLING TO MANY PERSONAL FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS.

***DON'T DO WHAT I DO, BUT DO WHAT I SAY***

MR STEVEN TAVARES MENTIONED "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I HAVE IN MY NOTEBOOK"



1. Chris Crow took money to support a project that threatens the health and safety of San Leandro residents, threatens the endangered species along the San Leandro shoreline - Crow does not care how the communities feel or concern.

2. Bad choice of words, Offensive statement Crow made is not accountable - simply he is in a campaign race.

3. Within my power to verify in regard of his arrested record with the police department.

This is not about campaign race, this is about the future of San Leandro with possible elected or not official has such track records.



I agree. I think we should check the records of Crow ,Dillman and whoever else needs it. Background equals character!!!

I would not go as far as to put him in the same group as Hayashi or Armas or Heredia.

The guy made a mistake and if he can just sincerely apologize let's just move on.

I'm not talking about that questionable quote, I'm asking for any factual proof of the "suggested" crimes some posters here seem to indicate he has done.
Thus far I've seen absolutely nothing based on facts.
Only some completely unsubstantiated rumors.

"SUGGESTION" San Leandro City Hall together with San Leandro police department to perform a full backfgound checks on all candicates.

1:24 PM, You don't seem to understand our democratic system. You DON'T need to have a clean record to run for elective office. No more than your campaign literature needs to tell the truth.
There seems to be a unusual number of folks posting here that are completely new to the election process.

Everyone but a convicted felon (in some instances) has the right to run for office. The people get to vote.

This is why Mary Hayashi took a plea deal, so she could get her felony arrest reduced to a misdemeanor.
Had she been found guilty of a felony she would have been kicked out of the legislature.
So she plead guilty, in exchange for a reduction of the felony charges to a misdemeanor.
Of course NOW, she says her felony level crime was just a matter of a "absentminded error"... she didn't really mean it.

Agree, this guy made a mistake but continue being defensive and not willing to move forward.

Another sincerly apology was requested from Crow in earlier comment.

Crow, this second requests for your sincerely apology.

Hey Crow, move to Hayward and run for the school board. I hear Hayward folks are dissatisified with the present Board. Go figure.

Marga, know your writing style by now, am neither politician nor with any party, am grass root person don't know anything about politic, BUT do know about integrity and wouldn't take BRIBE against his own people.

Did someone mentioned Pro USA, he can't even Pro San Leandro

Marga, you have been bring alot of attention for yourself as well, after googling so you like to play "lAWYER"

Like Judge Judge said in her show: this is my playpen - you IDIOT!

Elected official, don't pretend "lawyer" when you are not!

The White island will rise again.
Chris Crow

I have always stood firm in maintaining the ability for readers to post comments anonymously because of the belief all speech, however reprehensible, is dealt with by others in a proper way. It's no different than if someone walked into a coffee shop and starting yelling racially-charged comments, someone or everyone would stand up and tell that person to leave.

However, I can't allow serious charges to be written without proof. I have to delete those. Otherwise, you know, tell us how you feel.

Chris Crow's biggest problem isn't the comment it's the lack of maturity to say, hey I made a mistake I'm sorry.
Instead, him and his spokesperson Marga via her Facebook page, her blog and the patch site are trying to blame everyone but the person who originally put the comment on his Facebook page.

The Patch ,Crow and Dillman should be banned from SL. They are the "real losers." They don't even deserve the lil attention there getting here. They are the Patch's favorites. Every time I open the patch these same clowns always have the most posts and discredit anybody who says anything about either one! Now him and his supporters can't take the heat. They only like minority money! Those fake smiles only go so far! Get lost!!

I would like to know how San Leandro Patch or any of the Patch sites can have a stated candidate continue writing blog posts on their site? This week, Crow is writing about medical marijuana dispensaries in San Leandro, a major campaign issue this fall.

Talk about a conflict!

They also run Mayor Cassidy's PR blog. Now, how can you cover City Hall if the mayor is your columnist?

Do you trust Crow to run medical marijuana dispensaries in San Leandro. Undertable transactions are welcome, no credit cards please. supplies to underground usages - sure, thank you - cash only. Let's pretend affiliated with hospitals, SL will never find out even though I post stupidly on Facebook.

Totally agreed with Mr. Steven Tavares, Mayor Cassidy should seperate himself from any blogging groups. His role is the Mayor of the city not writer of the patch.

At 9:56pm
By the way, no worry, things go bad, Marga can play pretend wannabe "LAWYER"

EXTRA! EXTRA! DO YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT IT!!

Do you trust Crow to run medical marijuana dispensaries in San Leandro.
Undertable transactions are welcome, no credit cards please. supplies to underground usages - sure, thank you - cash only. Let's pretend affiliated with hospitals, SL will never find out even though I post stupidly on Facebook.

Two sorest losers in the world

Pretend Lawyer - no need for bar exam, cause I'm untouchable behind the computer

Clueless of how many countries in the World - retake elementary social studies or borrow a library card take a good look of "WORLD MAP"
World is a whole, USA and China are parts of the World. dingdong

From another perspective, Benny Lee has a braveheart protecting San Leandro communities from loser Crow.

Kick loser Crow off race track take bribe money from windmill dude against your own SL folks

what's the cut for Crow from medical marijuana dispensaries

In between jobs meeting underground dealers and taking bribe $$$

Someone name Thomas Clake made a comment to San Leandro Patch article on Crow's controvesy offensive statement


Thomas Clarke
7:22 pm on Thursday, August 30, 2012

Marga: I am saddened to see a stallwart of the Democratic Party supporting a loser like Chris Crow, just because you too are highly opposed to Benny Lee and the South East Asian minority-majority in San Leandro. Pretty soon they will in point of fact own the Democratic and Republican parties, by virtue of their positions in support of the electorate. There are not many agnostic, Argentinian, Socialist failed to past the bar women to vote for you. In point of fact, Chris Crow is not the candidate for female progressives like you. He is representative of the old San Leandro. Let him go down to defeat.

Mike: You should be tooting the horn for all those who seek to bring back the old San Leandro of cronyism, ethnic enclaves and special interests to be honored by the scions of those special interests. Of course that age of Santos and Maltester before is gone. Let us hope that the South East Asians rise to take over their district.

Fran: Go back to quoting Cranmer.

Get out and vote. Make sure everyone does and many times.

WOW! AFTER GLANCED THROUGH THE COMMENTS IN THIS WEBSITE AS A NEW BABIE.

MY IMPRESSION IS THAT CHRIS CROW IS WAY UP ON TOP DRAWING ALL THE ATTENTIONS ONE WAY OR THE OTHERS.

HOPE HE WILL LEARN SOMETHING OUT FROM IT.

3:44, less caps please, but I do appreciate your effort to make a contribution, even if I disagree with your view.

One reason why candidates often draw the heightened attention is because they are precieved as leading. If Chris Crow had no chance to win, then he wouldn't be getting all this attention from this apparent group of aligned individuals. They must think he is the chief rival of the person they favor.
That is clear from the fairly orchestrated response campaign we've seen here.

In that sense, you compliment Mr. Crow, as the one to beat.

As a life long Oaklander I could care less about SL politics. I don't know any of these people running, but have friends who live in that City that do. This Crow guy should just keep his mouth shut and stop blogging so damn much on every site or story that pops up. Run a campaign not ur foul mouth. And who is this Dillman theater guy? Heard nothing but worst things about him. Makes Crow look like a saint. Is this the best SL has to offer? I know Oak is screwed up but didn't expect SL to be running a close second. Good Luck SL citizens.

Christ is #1 and Marga #2 drawing heavy attentions for their BAD mouth odors.

The winners in this title.

Another bad breath from crow in SL patch article, Crow crying victimized "someone snapshot my harmless comment" why bother you much of your belief morally right on your post.

Pro USA, take money from windmill guy against SL folks, Pro.. mmh still pro... my boy pic can pro me everywhere...thick skin you are


Negative statements about any culture, nation, or race is unbecoming of a elected official.

"negative statements about any---nation--- is unbecoming of a elected official"

Perhaps one of the most absurd statements I've ever heard. I see, let us not say anything negative about North Korea, or going back a few years, about East Germany, or a bit further back, about WW2 Germany or Japan.

BTW, you don't think mentioning anything about the negative aspects of certain cultures is acceptable.
How about the way women are treated in Saudi Arabia?
Now don't say anything negative about that.

You've drunk the Kool-Aid of modern local thinking, extrapolating the East Bay values, assuming your style of "diversity" is practiced everywhere, or that ALL side's practices are equally valuable.
I'll pass that on to women in rural Afghanistan.
Remember now, respect their cultural norms. Wearing "bee-keeper" outfits is part of their ways.

1122 your right I think it's totally okay to have unemployed carpet bagging innapropriate comment making city council members. I mean someone who ran from an incumbent must surely be strong enough to represent. Look the comments were not racist, but they are definately distasteful. That being said I don't think crow should be burned at the stake, he apologized on his patch and that was enough for me.

Crow your and idiot and closet racist! As a resident of SL I have done my research on u and your buddy. Both of u have made insensitive racial comments towards Asian and African Americans. The nerve of either of u to run for anything. What disgraces!

Mr/Ms 12:01

OK, we want to believe you. Crow has made "insensitive radial comments towards Asians and African Americans"

Seems I missed the ones about African Americans.

But you clearly know precisely what they were, or you would NOT have made your post.

So sir, MR/MS 12:01 poster. I'm asking you right NOW, please give me ONE single comment that Mr. Crow has made about African Americans that is "insensitive".

We all await for even just ONE example. Surely you have several, but please, just give us ONE example

Waiting for your reply. Oh yes, give us your source for the comment and date and location.
We know you wouldn't make such heated racial charge if you couldn't back it up.

U seem to forget the word " buddy" Mr. Crow and u should know who that is. Crow already gave his example towards Asian's. Enough said. His "buddy" against those deputies/ officers who arrested him. The source for that is an arrest report! I'm doing research on all these candidates as well as u should before u vote for them. U seem to purposely leave the other candidate out of your post. Ur obviously a supporter of both. I'm sure either of them can give u the information u desire. Stay opened minded!

Mr 1:46... So using the word "buddy" is Mr. Crow's "insensitive" racial remark about African Americans?

Please tell the readers here you are joking.

So, you suggest that in some police report, from some date, or some year, in some city, that Mr. Crow is accused of using the word "buddy" in some manner that is insensitive to African Americans?

Is that about right. Those are your charges of "racism"?

Of course everyone here agrees, "buddy" is a contemptable term. They refer to it as the "b" word, so terrible it can't be used in polite company.

"Buddy".... How could he, after all these years.
Has he learned nothing after all the years of struggle to scour that terrible word from our language.

I guess it all part of that old "buddy system" that used to pervade our culture.

Thank God "buddy" is no longer acceptable.
Good for you to bring these awful crimes of Mr. Crow into public light.

"Buddy"... Oh yeah, now I understand all the vitriol against Mr. Crow.
He certainly deserves it, using that caustic term in the year 2012.

Investigation in process M*rga rear on fire

readers read as said U(Crow)and your buddy

Buddy meaning Dillman!! Do I need to force feed u! As in his buddy or friend! Stop playing games with the readers!

CHRIST, you shamed your given name, because your thinking and behavior are UNCHRISTIAN like !

Grandma

Ms 2:06 aka Campaign Manager,
U begged for proof or a response and u got it. Now your quiet. Guess u need extra time to twist the truth and blame other people like Crow. U cut and pasted only segments of what I said. Like I said you are a supporter of both! All of u are a joke. Crow,Dillman and yourself! Hope that makes it clear!

Campaign manager will be making a statement as soon as she is finished eating

Did you send it directly to her? I would love to see or hear the other racist comments without her copy pasting them with edits..329 please show us

@ 4:02 I didn't send her anything. She knows what I'm referring to. I live in the district where Crow's "buddy" Dillman is running. I read a police report several months ago in which he made racial remarks towards two African American officers a year ago. He was recently convicted of several crimes against those officers. Crow came running to his defense as usual and blamed everyone. Now Crow makes insensitive remarks and blames everyone. There seems to be a pattern here.

Oh I see...definately a pattern... birds of a feather flock together

Campaign Manager aka play lawyer still eating

Yes Thank You 4:37!! Both the SGT and DET. were african american, I can only imagine whats in that PD report, oh wait its completely accessible. So Crow makes comments against asians and Dillman against African Americans..got it.

Crytal clear, SL citizens must united prevent these two characters running our city's future.

Go to the "love child" SL Patch who allows these phonies to take over the blogs and say what they want against anyone. The facts of that case must be right because he was convicted. Crow has people on their believing he knows all the facts and wasn't there. Looks like his buddy and buddies family was trying to get rich quick. He's suing for 15 mill. Go figure. Guess business is not so good at that theater. Maybe he trying to get some of that money. I saw the story recently online and knew somethin was fishy. Don't understand why that reporter never did a follow up story like he promised. Completely a one sided story. Reed is getting my support as of now.

Crow blame others of the fact he indeed wrote offensive comment and himself do no wrong, then his campaign manager wrote an anticle in SL Patch stated professional politician like herself has a "no tell the truth" rule, another article on EBC reveals Crow took bribe from businessman possible buy city council approval for a wind turbine project current still pending review by the zoning board.

Will do some reseach on Dillman. Thanks 5:31

Does anyone know why Crow was fired by Reed, jump ship from D2 to D4

6:02, something is definately fishy with these two. Seems as if Dillman is involved in other suits with other business owners. Wow! These two are up to no good. Gather your facts and u will see what my friends have been saying about this Dillman guy for years. I wonder if the DA's office can provide information about the trial? The jury seems to not have believed his story.

As far as going from district 2 to district 4, Crow knew it was going to be a far easier race. He is going against Lee, Hutchison and Daevu all of which have no previous experience. He basically just jumped to the easier race for someone with his political connections.

Seems like lots of very skilled communicators here.
To anyone not totally involved in this arcane San Leandro drama, you'd have to be some code expert to make heads or tails of what these folks are writing, or the message they want to convey.
I guess for them its all "inside baseball". Too bad 98% of the voters couldn't figure it out even if they read every post.

Talk about NOT being ready for prime time. They don't seem to be ready for a 101 course in basic writing.

Takes them 5 or 10 posts to even allow the reader to figure out what the insensitive "buddy" remark is all about.
What a joke. No need to ever fear these rubes are going to take over San Leandro politics.
Not until they master a entry level course in basic communication.

6:50pm

No wonder Crow and his progressive manager belittling other opponents with arrogant attitude all over SL

Crow support Marga's written abusive bullying comments by liking them on facebook that shows his lack of maturity and how he may treat San Leandrans



Read SL Patch articles Chris Crow has over half dozens of his big ideas, controversy statement, point fingering, big time hero etc.

One topic he has not covered so far, contribution from Halus to his campaign, requesting Chris Crow make a statement on this topic.

We are the voters have the rights to understanding the reasons you pro Halus and being spokeman of such, waiting for your debate and article on this issue.

1.08AM

Didn't know spelling check was a requirement for people to understand the post. It shows your elitism and stereotyping towards Chinese and others. Crow and his people need to justify their attitudes towards many in this way.

Here are some facts. City Council Candidates Chris Crow and Darlene Daevu support the proposed Halus Wind Turbine Project in San Leandro. Wind turbines are known to:

1) Cause illness in nearby residents such has migraines, nausea, insomnia, and stress related disorders (strokes,etc.)
2) Fail from the blades (length of rail road cars, spinning at 90-95 mph at blade tips) or turbine shattering or exploding sending shrapnel debris flying in all directions
3) Drop property values by 10 to 30%
4) Kill predatory birds (hawks and eagles) that help keep control of the rodent population.

The City of San Leandro has tried to rubber stamp this project through the approval process; the City of San Leandro has not even required an environmental impact report to assess the negative impacts of this wind turbine project on the community.

If this project was proposed in a more affluent area such as Danville or Blackhawk, do you think their City officials would try to force this down the communities' throat? Would their City officials NOT require an environmental impact report from the owner of the proposed Wind Turbine? The answer is NO. Show the San Leandro City officials that we care about our community and are intelligent enough to know you must fully assess the impacts of a project of this magnitude and consequence on the community. All San Leandro Residents should demand that the City of San Leandro require an Environmental Impact Report on the proposed Halus Wind Turbine Project.

Regarding the City Council Candidates Chris Crow and Darlene Daevu, why have they not reached out to the residents they hope to represent and listen to their concerns? They have shown no interest in listening to the residents, and Chris Crow in particular, has only shown interest in accepting campaign contributions from a project (Halus Wind Turbine) that threatens the health, safety, and environment of San Leandro.

Hell no Danville or Pleasanton would ever approve this!

Update Chris Crow is moving to Pleasanton!

***Readers*** see September 2, 2012 1:08 AM

Chris Crow and his people, again, made insensitive comment specifically at the Chinese

It appears here that about half the posts are being made by "agent provocateurs" trying to stoke the fires of hate and insecurity.

Witness 1:08 PM responding to 1:08 AM

Probably the same guy doing both.

Anyone who supports Crow and Dillman and shares their veiws are racist!!! Crow doesn't like Asian's and we know how Dillman feels about African American cops! No wonder they are friends. This would explain why their running in separate districts. Take your clan mentality and windmills elsewhere! We don't want it here in SL
