Do you think Alamo should be incorporated?

Alamo and its region will be incorporated to protect communities from the abusive power of Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors. Alamo community of neighborhods municipal formation committee and their sponsors have already voted to proceed with incorporation through municipal counsel.
It is no longer a question of "should or if".

I feel Alamo is just fine the way it is. We do not need a another layer of government to deal with and to support financially.

Hey you guys,
Before you change the way things are, look at ways to improve what you have. What is happening to Danville now is what you are in for if you incorporate. There is not enough tax base to provide even marginal services here in Danville. San Ramon, on the other hand, has a different mix of industry, commercialism, and residences to keep their services afloat. Can Alamo attract the level of industry, commerce and other such tax generating venues to keep its services even at the level they are? I doubt it.
I agree with Joan, who speaks about a new layer of government. Most people who run for office are idiots when it comes to doing the common good. They play to their own agenda, which is fine if the outcome really serves the community in a non political way. One person's definition of abuse is another person's sense of well being. I would be most appreciative if Hal would define his use of the term abusive power with actual examples.
