Jean Sweeney Day in Alameda

November 1, 2011 was proclaimed Jean Sweeney Day in Alameda by the Alameda City Council. Mayor Gilmore presented Jim Sweeney and Jean's sister Betty with a proclamation honoring Jean for her years of service to the citizens of Alameda.

Link below to the video clip of that City Council meeting showing Mayor Gilmore reading the proclamation and presenting it to the family. At the time Jean was too ill to be at the presentation. Many citizens attended and took the opportunity to speak about Jean and how important she was to everyone as a friend and activist.
Link to the 20 minute video.
