City Council Candidates Who Have NOT Accepted Developer Money

Vinnie Bacon and Kathy McDonald, candidates for Fremont city council 2010, are advocates for open space and opposed Patterson Ranch proposal for the many unresolved issues of toxic soils, public safety hazards due to high risk of liquefaction in an earthquake, local schools overcrowding, potential flooding due to sea level rise, etc. They do not accept any developer money.
