Little decided in MOFD division races
By Nick Marnell
The Election Day voter turnout gave few clues to the new composition of the Moraga-Orinda Fire District governing board.

Only in Division 3 did a candidate show a relatively comfortable 394 vote lead. The ...read

A tribute to Tatzin

I am writing to express my profound appreciation for Mayor Tatzin's 33 years of service on the Lafayette City Council. Throughout his tenure, the community has made tremendous strides in fiscal resiliency, beautification, and environmental stewardship. Notably, he championed the effort to create the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, the new cornerstone of our community. Additionally, he ensured that the City utilized sound fiscal practices resulting in Lafayette's ability to weather downturns in the economy while other cities struggled. And most notably, he supported the City's efforts to be an environmental leader by voting to join MCE - the single greatest environment action that the City has done to date. Please join me in congratulating Mayor Tatzin for his efforts to make Lafayette a community we all "love".
