Bear’s-Eye View of Alameda for November 6, 2022.

Alameda Post – Bear's-Eye View for November 6, 2022 – scary pumpkins

With five Sundays in the month of October, I had five opportunities to really show off what Alamedans were doing to celebrate Halloween, and I think I covered it pretty well. However, I could not resist including one last image to end the cycle. Hope you enjoy my “Late Night Pumpkins” image taken Halloween night.

Alameda Post – Bear's-Eye View for November 6, 2022 – Vote

While Halloween did dominate my reports for October, there were other things going on in the city. Perhaps the most important event of the year is coming up this Tuesday, when Alamedans will finish casting their ballots and deciding who will be on the City Council.

As I walked through the city, I found many signs for the folks running for office, but I did not see a sign for every candidate. So, I had my human companion create an image so that everyone was represented.

I want to be sure that everyone knows that I am providing this report as a public service to the community and not to promote any one candidate. We don’t do politics here at the Bear’s-Eye View of Alameda.

If you would like to know more about each of the folks running for office, you can go to their websites and read up on their qualifications and positions on the issues that are important to you. You can also read about them on the Alameda Post’s Election information page.

Just so everyone knows, the order of appearance of the images and links was determined by pulling the individual names out of my food bowl.

Here are the links.

Please be sure to mark your ballot and get it mailed in or dropped off before the Tuesday night deadline.

Wishing everyone who is running for office the best of luck.
