11/20/2021

Today, November 20, is International Transgender Day of Remembrance, honoring the memory of transgender and gender-diverse people murdered due to anti-transgender hatred or bigotry. 2021 marks the deadliest year on record for transgender and gender-diverse people. In the United States, 46 people have lost their lives this year, and 89% of those killed were people of color.

"Transgender Day of Remembrance seeks to highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. I am no stranger to the need to fight for our rights, and the right to simply exist is first and foremost. With so many seeking to erase transgender people, sometimes in the most brutal ways possible, it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we continue to fight for justice." -- Transgender Day of Remembrance founder Gwendolyn Ann Smith

11/10/2021

Ella Halisky, a 7th grader at Wood Middle School, emailed the Alameda City Council asking them to ban cat declawing for convenience, aesthetics, or handling of the animal. She then drafted a resolution that the Council unanimously adopted and was shared with State Senator Nancy Skinner, Assemblymember Mia Bonta, other members of the California Senate and Assembly, and advocacy organizations.

According to the Humane Society, cat declawing traditionally involves the amputation of the last bone of each toe. If performed on a human being, it would be like cutting off each finger at the last knuckle. It is an unnecessary surgery that provides no medical benefit to the cat.

"It is important to advocate for animals who are unable to do so themselves. Cat declawing is an inhumane, unnecessary form of animal cruelty backed up by science. Passing the resolution was possible because Alameda is united on this issue. Thank you for all the support I received throughout working on this project from residents, animal organizations, Ms. Kasey Brown, Councilmembers, and especially Mayor Ezzy Ashcraft and Councilmember Knox White." --Ella Halisky

DYK Thomas Edison established the first commercial power station in lower Manhattan in 1882, and just 5 years and 3000 miles later the City of Alameda installed 13 streetlights and a 90-kilowatt generating station to power them, becoming the oldest public electric utility west of the Mississippi? Pretty cool, right?

To help celebrate Public Power Week, Alameda Municipal Power launched a drawing contest for K-8 students with the theme, "Driving Electric Vehicles into Alameda's Future." What does the electric vehicle of the future look like to you? What do you think Alameda will look like in the future? DRAW IT!

Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft shared the following statement about the passing of Supervisor Wilma Chan today:

On behalf of the Alameda City Council and the City of Alameda, we extend our deepest sympathy to the family, friends, and colleagues of Supervisor Wilma Chan who was tragically killed this morning after being struck by a car as she walked her dog. Supervisor Chan, an Alameda resident, was a longtime dedicated public servant who served the residents of Alameda for more than three decades as a former State Assembly Member, and Speaker of the Assembly, and on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. Supervisor Chan was a tireless advocate for seniors, children, and families, promoting programs that advance children’s health, and help lift people out of poverty, and so much more. Her compassion, strong sense of community, and devotion to the people she served will be profoundly missed.

INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY AFTER PEDESTRIAN IS STRUCK BY A MOTORIST

Just after 8:00 am, on Wednesday, November 3, the Alameda Police Department responded to the intersection of Shoreline Drive and Grand Street for a report of a collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian. Upon arrival, officers located an unresponsive adult female in the roadway. The woman was transported by the Alameda Fire Department to a local hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the vehicle, an adult female, remained on the scene and is cooperating with the investigation. At this time, the cause of the collision is yet to be determined. Out of respect for the family, we are not releasing information about the pedestrian. The investigation is ongoing and no additional information will be released at this time.

The City of Alameda holds post-collision site visits for all major and fatal collisions. In the coming weeks, city personnel from APD, Public Works, and the Transportation Planning Department will conduct a review of the collision site and details from the investigation to discuss any potential safety interventions.

Can someone please look into putting a left turn signal on Otis and Grand, sitting through two lights to make a left isn't my idea of fun. Also the left turn signal from Otis to Shoreline seems broken again, sat 10 minutes before light changes and that was because of a pedestrian
