Judy Kleinberg said recently that “corporations are people too” if that helps explain her stance here. She was speaking of the German software giant SAP (market cap $18B) which is now also a tenant on University, running the cafe in The Varsity. So I guess she is saying that their $200K managers and their subtenant $10/hr baristas or billionaire CEO Hasso Plattner all deserve the right to park in front of the houses of Mr. Rosenblum, Mr. Filseth and Mr. Buchanon for the near future if not forever. She probably thinks that in the case of Rosenblum he has double rights, as a homeowner and corporate equity holder, although not on his own street.
Oligarchy, not a Democracy.
Didn’t you get the memo?
note: the Palo Alto City Council, in October, 2012 — a few years after Kleinberg’s tenure — deliberated Citizens United but came out as ambivalent towards trying to repeal the Roberts Court ruling that Kleinberg’s bold statement seems to exemplify and further.
