A superior slate at candidates' forum

Original post made by Spencer Little, Menlo Park: Suburban Park/Lorelei Manor/Flood Park Triangle, on Oct 24, 2006

I have never been involved in city politics until now, and I will be voting for the first time in a City Council election. I attended last month's candidates' forum and concluded that the three allies (Lee Duboc, Mickie Winkler and John Boyle) were the superior candidates.

A "strangely" similar letter this author has been published twice in the Almanac's printed edition, and now appears again. The author was reported to be a paid campaign employee by the Duboc, Boyle, Winkler campaigns in their required financial statements.
When I googled his name, I found that he's a recent high school graduate. Maybe these are his own thoughts, but when he's received money from those he endorses one has to wonder.
