2012 election

A reader e-mailed us the other day to request that we check into claims the three Democratic candidates for the Assembly District 18 seat have made on campaign mailers hitting mailboxes over these last several weeks. So just in time for Tuesday’s election, we deconstruct some claims made by candidates Rob Bonta, Abel Guillen and Joel Young.

CLAIMS: Alameda Vice Mayor Rob Bonta says he “worked with the Obama Administration to acquire the Alameda Point property" and "helped deliver to the East Bay an economic development project that will create up to 9,000 good jobs." He also "helped secure $84 million in local education funding.”
