This needs a bigger debate. At first blush I am wary of yet another critical service being clawed back into the county orbit, e.g. Pinole Animal Shelter, Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection, along with the effort to sully the stellar reputations of the Pinole and Hercules Police Departments with need for oversight and financial constraints. Take the time to educate yourself, better to fight for something and to lose it than to have given it away without a fight. In the latter you'll never get it back. In the first one can come to fight again.
