If you don't like this, then vote to recall Newsom. This is his leadership.

@Zack (hate to admit - but Newsom is The Man in charge, greater than $10 Billion in EDD fraud and counting)

94040 - gee, anyone living in this ZIP code knows Varsity Park, up next to MV High School and the City of Los Altos has VASTLY different demographics than Castro City and the hundred apartments along California Ave. By US 2010 Census Tract, we know the demographics! By living here, we KNOW the diversity is not intermixed (it's quasi-redlined).

I don't particularly like what I percieve as 'the arrogence' of the County Executive, even if he has an MD. But he and the Public Health Office that he administers seems to be 'closely listening' to elected community leaders like Our Own Joe, Simitian. Things 'broken in the process' seem to GET FIXED. (personal - when Kaiser couldn't get me, at 70 years, an appointment magic happened -Levi appointments were opened to Kaiser oldsters. "2-in-the-arm").

So, I think this PUSH is justified, and not just local-agency arrogance.
