Happy October! We have had an extremely busy last few months and are really excited to share some updates from our office: from community events, to our time in the field, and ensuring Measure W is implemented in a way that is fair to our constituents. However, before we dive into these updates I wanted to introduce my two new staffers Brandon Harami and Matt Napoli!
Oaktoberfest is one of the Bay Area’s premiere craft-beer festivals boasting over 200 craft beers to choose from, but it’s not only about the brews. We have four stages jam packed with amazing artists like Andre Thiery, Midtown Social, and Bayonics and Soji and the AfroBeat Band to name a few. There is an entire street dedicated to kids and family attractions with a root beer garden where root beer floats abound. There will also be hundreds of vendors with clothes, crafts and of course plenty of great food options.
Join the Friends of Sausal Creek for an all out effort to pull French broom, limb up and clear dead debris at the Chabot Space and Science Center. The goal is to reduce fire risks and also clear an area adjacent to the Pallid Manzanita population. If you can’t do any heavy lifting, no problem- we need help with sign in table, and traffic control.
East Bay Community Emergency Prep Fair
A public community-based event to demonstrate that a cohesive and resilient community is the best beginning to prepare for and respond to a disaster. This will be a family-friendly event, with a focus on seniors and people with disabilities.
State of the Estuary Conference
Every two years, the Estuary Partnership brings a focus to the management and ecological health of the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary. The State of the San Francisco Estuary Conference showcases the latest information about the region’s work to sustain and improve the estuary’s habitats, living resources, water quality, climate resilience, and environmental stewardship.
Montclair Annual Halloween Parade
Several hundred people along with special guests, a marching band, and the Wells Fargo Bank Stage Coach will parade down Mountain Boulevard during the annual Montclair Lions Club Halloween Parade in Montclair Village on Oct. 31.
Updates on Measure W:
This measure will be heard by the full City Council on October 15th.
