The following report is on a City Council meeting held on May 13 (thursday).

About a City Council meeting held on Thurs. May 13:
Billed as a meeting with’ faith-based and community-based organizations’.

My sister, Maria went and this is what she observed. – There were only about 10 people in the audience.  Mayor McNeil and Councilman Cruz chaired the meeting.  The meeting was to try to get some type of events planned for the summer so that the community of San Pablo could participate and enjoy them.  One angry person spoke out and mentioned that these meetings have been going on since Nov. and still nothing has happened.  McNeil got upset.  McNeil dominated the meeting with his constant talking.  Cruz continued to be the clown.  The new City Manager did get a chance to speak.  The new  City Manager mentioned that some of the things the City could do for this summer could be: (1) have a farmers market on City owned property, (2) start a community garden on City owned property, (3) having a car show and band and closing off 23rd street for a day or two of  celebration.  The City Manager’s ideas were shot down by Cruz who said we already have a ‘Heritage Day’.  A couple of people were put on committees and the meeting ended.

Note: This meeting was not posted on the City website.
