Because of a medical appointment, I went to the meeting late. I came in while Richmond City Manager Bill Lindsey was showing a slide show about Richmond. I do not know all the folks in these photos, so I will just mention the people I know. Sorry if missed you or your relative's names.

First row on the end is McKinley Williams, President of Contra Costa College. Two rows back from him, wearing a red jacket is former CCC archeology professor George Coles and next to him is Pat Pearson from the Masquers Playhouse.
People were lined up waiting to speak to the LBNL representative who was standing on the other side of the stage. Last in this line is John Ziezenhenne, of M.A. Hays Insurance company, a former city councilperson who ran unsuccessfully for City Council again last time and lost.

This is the Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory representative.
Sorry I did not find out what his name was.
State Senator Mark DeSaulnier.
California State Senator Mark DeSaulnier is wearing the blue shirt. He represents part of Contra Costa County, though not Richmond. DeSaulnier showed up to represent the interests of the State of California, hopefully on our side.
