The purpose of this blog is to provide occasional observations about issues affecting the City of Alameda and its citizens.
Don’t expect inside information from City Hall or a “vision” for the City’s future. The Alameda Merry-Go-Round will stick to the public record and attempt to analyze the facts rather than to promote an agenda.
Years ago, the motto of the Chicago Sun Times was that the job of a newspaper was to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. If a blog needs a “mission statement,” that is a pretty good one for the Merry-Go-Round.
