The Dogwatch

Report cards on the dog and water access friendliness of local politicians and advocacy groups.

This is a new feature on the CDAWGS website.

We are especially interested in the voting records and public comments of:

local city councilpeople
State representatives

We will summarize and evaluate the positions taken on the record by public and private advocacy groups, such as:

California State Parks Foundation
Citizens for East Shore Parks
East Bay Bicycle Coalition
Sierra Club, local and national
