Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Hacer que el GOP del Condado de Alameda vuelva a ser grande a través de actividades del condado y eventos de candidatos
  • Reformar el comité central por representación proporcional de distritos de acuerdo con el número de votantes Republicanos en cada uno
  • Evitar que los PAC laven las contribuciones de campaña mediante el uso no autorizado del nombre del partido del condado

I want our local politicians to put Southern Alameda County FIRST, but sadly, often they do not.

Political History of Alameda County


Alameda County and its once-leading city of Oakland have been amazingly consequential for American politics after World War II. We can thank the vanished old guard of the county Republican Party for prolonging a social order which gave us the Black Panther Party, block-busting, and white flight to the tri-valleys of San Ramon, Amador, and Livermore. The most divisive political battle in California history began and played out right here. Amazingly, the new guard of the county Democrat Party also followed Oakland-centric policies, though less successfully, which have left Alameda the poorest and most rapidly failing county of the Bay Area. Truly independent redistricting of supervisory districts are a faint hope to yank the county out of its downward spiral.

This is an hour-long talk. Please contact me topresent it at your group or event.

Recent History of the Alameda County Republican Party


In order to understand the county Republican Party it is necessary to know how county and state parties are legally organized, and how the tension between a pragmatic establishment versus an ideological grassroots has roiled California and county Republican parties since Reagan if not before. Because of the structure of the state party, its diminishing electoral success places greater pressure on county parties to root out grassroots members. This has produced epic conflicts within the Alameda party, including lawsuits to expel members, illegal campaign contributions, and even billionaires buying elections. You can’t make this stuff up, and it is still going on in our backyard.

This paper is 37 pages long. Please contact me for a copy, or to present the paper in a talk to your group or event.
