My husband and I have an architecture and design firm in West Berkeley. On any given day, I am searching for plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, hardware, windows, doors, cabinets, tile, flooring, decking and furniture, to name a few. I have the unique privilege of looking at and specifying all of those products, and many more, all found or made in West Berkeley. Things look different on the computer, the colors aren’t accurate or the scale is hard to picture, so I like to see things in person as much as possible. If I don’t find exactly what I am looking for, I usually can talk to the local fabricator or vendor and work together to customize.
Incumbent mayor Tom Bates has raised nearly 70% more than his two most prominent challengers combined, according to the latest campaign filings available through the City Clerk’s election portal.

Jacquelyn McCormick garnered $5,970, for a total this year of $22,480.
French director Jean Renoir is rightfully considered one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. He’s responsible, after all, for both 1937’s La Grande Illusion and 1939’s La Règle du Jeu (The Rules of the Game) – two films that have featured prominently on countless ‘best of’ lists for decades.
