There must be times when Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates wishes he could catch a break in the media. Be it hyper local

"I will be featured on NBC's TODAY Show (Bay Area Channel 3), tomorrow, Tuesday May 12th at 8:09am. The two-minute piece chronicles my success in selling my car and using alternate forms of transit in an attempt to lower my carbon footprint."
