Critics of Judy Arnold claim the supe is attempting to deflect attention from her recent “hissy fit,” by taking credit for passage of AB1537, authored by Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael.
While speaking before the Marin Women’s Political Action Committee, the Fifth District Supervisor made over-the-top remarks that went viral on YouTube. “My campaign really didn’t have just one opponent. It was about the Tea Party and property rights activists,” Arnold said. “She used phrases like ‘no top-down policies.’ She started a local organization called Citizen Marin, which by its very name means that any refugee from Latin America probably isn’t welcome with that organization.”
SAN RAFAEL(KCBS) - Marin County’s district attorney said he wants the state to strengthen laws that address people who disguise replica guns and rifles to look like the real ones—an effort resulting from the recent confrontation between sheriff’s deputies and a 12-year-old boy.
Marin County's district attorney is pushing for tougher laws when it comes to people possessing toy guns that have been altered to look like real guns.
While it's already against the law to tamper with a toy gun and remove the orange tip manufacturers are required to place on them, there's no law that makes it illegal to simply possess that altered toy gun. No legal action can be taken if law enforcement officials can't prove the person who has the toy gun was the one to paint over or remove the orange tip at the end of the barrel.
SAN FRANCISCO - Democratic State Assemblyman Marc Levine said he plans to introduce a resolution to rename a tunnel north of the Golden Gate Bridge after the late comedian Robin Williams.
The Waldo Tunnel is in Marin County, where Williams grew up and lived before committing suicide at his home there in August. Levine of San Rafael said he plans to introduce the name-change resolution in December in response to an online petition that has garnered more than 55,000 signatures. He has checked with representatives of Williams' family, and they support the project, Levine told the San Francisco Chronicle.
California State Assemblymember Marc Levine, who represents Marin, has taken up the cause of renaming the Waldo Tunnel in honor of the late Robin Williams. As Live 105 reports, with Williams' family's blessing, Levine has agreed to bring the proposal to the Assembly floor in December.
Remember back in August when someone started a Change.org petition to rename the tunnel on the Golden Gate Bridge headed to Marin in honor of the late comedic icon Robin Williams?
Today, the petitioners announced it’s headed for a vote—and Williams’ family is onboard.
