I am so very tired of these people and their "if I don't get my way I'll throw all my money opposing you" attitude. I hope PV voters reject their approach.

I’ve been here a long time and find this exhausting and disappointing. I hope voters reject the combination of verbal and financial bullying that has taken the place of decency, compromise, patience and understanding.

I wish all the candidates good luck in the election, and that PV voters consider their choices carefully in light of the decisions that the Town must face in the future to meet its requirements and to preserve its character.

I think it's great that there are many candidates from which to choose. I find it very interesting that the Almanac continues to write nothing but negativity about anyone opposing the status quo Town Council in Portola Valley. What purpose does this serve? Almanac, be fair.

David B, you always seem to comment on PV happenings when you've made it clear that you don't live here, you live in Menlo Park. You've also stated several times that you wouldn't live in PV if they paid you to. Why are PV issues so important to you? It just seems odd.

Neighbor, you have the wrong David B. (Although I respect his views). I lived in PV for 21 years. Many readers here suspect who I am from my history of opinions in PV (some even respect my opinions). But I prefer to keep my full name out of public Internet postings.
