About this time each year, as I scan any gathering of gulls resting near the shore in Alameda, I suddenly stop. Why does that mid-sized gull look grey, rather than white or smudged brown? And why does it have a small red bill with a black tip?
Today, September 1, I am suspending my campaign for Alameda City Council in 2022. To all who have expressed their support, I apologize for disappointing you. To those who have generously contributed to my campaign, I will be returning your donations in the near future.
