Two Supervisors Unopposed in Election; One Has Challenger

Supervisor Nate Miley faces opposition on the June ballot

By Bay City News Service

Two longtime incumbents on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors
will be returned to office without opposition because no one filed to run
against them.

However, another incumbent will be challenged by a deputy probation
officer in the June election.

District Five Supervisor Keith Carson, who was first elected in 1992 and represents Berkeley, part of Oakland, Albany, Emeryville and Piedmont, will begin his sixth term next January.

District One Supervisor Scott Haggerty, who was first elected in 1996 and represents Livermore, Dublin, most of Fremont and unincorporated areas in the eastern part of tegin his fifth term next year.

District Four Supervisor Nate Miley, who was first elected in 2000, is being opposed by deputy probation officer Tojo Thomas in his bid for a third term.

The district includes part of Oakland, Castro Valley, Pleasanton and the unincorporated areas Ashland, Cherryland, Fairview and El Portal Ridge.

The election will be held on June 5.

Carson said, "I appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve the residents of Alameda County and especially the residents of the fifth district."

Carson said among the issues he anticipates working on in the next four years are the county's ongoing budget issues, the realignment of public safety, health care reform and pension reform.

Hey! Ho! Nate must go! Tojo Thomas needs to get out there are stump hard, be more visable. There are a lot of us who are waiting to support him and hoping to see Nate Miley hit the road. He's bad for Alameda County. People are suffering because of him. Hey Mr. Thomas, put a donation spot on your website. We are waiting to support you!

Tojo, I wish you had a really different first name. Really hard to support even though Nate Miley has to go. You need to set up your plans for volunteers so all of us who want to see Miley in jail can get started.
