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
The three had facts, dates, statistics, all manner of important information ready to go for each question. They were eloquent, concise, and direct in their logic. The three non-allied candidates (Vincent Bressler, Richard Cline, Heyward Robinson) seemed confused and unprepared.
Richard Cline stated that cops should write more speeding tickets to raise money for the city despite the fact everyone knows money from speeding tickets goes to the county, not the city of Menlo Park. The non-allied candidates only gave vague statements on the bad conditions of our city, yet the three allies point to facts about our potential future such as the Derry project and possibly building playing fields at Bayfront Park.
The non-allied candidates did nothing but oppose them. The allies can agree, the non-allies can only disagree. I believe we should vote for people who can say yes, and agree as a group on a plan. We should not vote for a bunch of nay-sayers who do not present new ideas or accurate information.
