All Eyes on The Sheriff Mobilization from 12-2pm. The action outside will be at 12pm and we will head into the board chambers at 1pm.
Did you know that in the past 10 years the Alameda County jail population has decreased by half, but the sheriff’s budget keeps increasing? The Ella Baker Center and our allies are calling for an audit of the Alameda County Sheriffâ€™s Department because taxpayers deserve to know how our money is being wasted. The county supervisors will be voting to adopt the Alameda Countyâ€™s $3.1 billion budget on Friday and we will be there to demand sheriff accountability and budget transparency!
The CAO just submitted a $3.1 billion proposed budget for fiscal year 18-19 to the Board. The BOS will be voting to adopt a final budget on June 29th. We are turning up to make our concerns heard by both Supervisors and media and expose the sheriff’s wasteful spending.
