    Well, I will not be spending a dime more in that City. I am happy to shop next door in Pleasant Hill. Concord also recently approved a sales tax which is now near 10%. Hopefully all of their residents go next door to Pleasant Hill to do their shopping.
    Idiots have been in charge of Concord for way too long.

    Godzilla, please consider attending the hearing to speak against this inane ban, and keep your ears open for anyone who is from Concord.

    If you PM me your contact info I'll keep you updated as the hearing approaches.

    I haven't been to Concord for years. I guess the Berkely smoking ban is finding its way toward Concord. I am glad I left and will never be going back.

    Hey Placebo, clean out your message box

    I also sent a message to Michael at Digital Ciggz to see if he knows the fellow from Concord that was selling Tshirts for vapers.

    Geoff from TV may know someone since he is in the Bay Area. Do you know Geoff enough to ask?

    I don't know Geoff at all.
