If you've been watching, what I've done with the Historic BAL Theatre over the past 5 years "take a run down theatre and turn it into one of the premiere event venues in the entire bay area on a mom and pop, shoe string budget", imagine what I could do for the city of San Leandro with it's resources as Mayor.
