Public Comments
Marilyn Foxx's home has been burgled 27 times in the past 23 years and sought help. Mayor Sweeney referred her to Police Chief Ron Ace.

Real estate broker Rob Simpson asserts the city has not been as thorough in its review of the Russell City Energy Center project and its impact, as the Bay Area's fifth largest polluter, on the Hayward Shoreline as it has with other developments and sub-divisions.

Doug Ligibel praised Councilman Zermeno's lead in starting a local task force in his neighborhood, supported by the Keep Hayward Clean and Green Task Force, and encouraged other council members to follow suit. He also expressed concern about the growing number of teenage murder victims. He attributes this, in part, to immediate peer pressure noting that the young seldom take a longer-term view of their lives. Ligibel requested an update by the end of 2010 on how Measure A (Utility User Tax) revenue has been spent. Mayor Sweeney pointed out that Measure A prevented job losses in Hayward Police Department which is staffed at its highest level in 10 years and has enabled the introduction of a gang injunction program.

Barbara Halliday - Yes
Olden Henson - Yes
Marvin Peixoto - Yes
Bill Quirk - Yes
