Menlo Park election: A Bad "Sign"...

Original post made by Glenn Raggio on Oct 18, 2006

Not a good "sign" . . .

Successful incumbents don't need to over-advertise themselves. I have worked for the city of Menlo Park and lived here for years. I'm embarrassed by the last four to five years of this City Council. The word "silly" comes to mind, closely followed by "sad." The Council's pathetic pleas—in the form of lawn signs that fill the streets of Menlo Park—for residents to support continued failure should serve as a warning. He or she who has the most signs apparently cannot stand on their own records.

I cannot recall when this city has needed a more serious change in its direction and leadership. Let's be clear: It's not just a slate we're being offered, but rather a train that can only follow one track. Let's get off here.

What does the council majority has in common with the Bush Administration?
A disturbing tendency to listen only to the people who agree with them, and to consistently disregard and disparage anyone with a different opinion. Lee DuBoc and Mickie Winkler have actually claimed to represent Menlo Park's "silent majority," a shout-out to the Nixon administration.
Is this really what Menlo Park residents want?
