Pitter Pat pear

Former mayor Pat Blurt pert butte apple butter stewed like prunes

Pat you were in leadership here for 16 years, 2000 thru 2016. Two companies, now worth a combined $1.6 trillion market cap were either founded here or based her during that time (FB, 2004; Google, 1999-2003). Why did we fail to establish a business tax for these and similar companies? I recall a more recent vote by you to grant concessions to the developer of the HQ of a video game company at Stanford Industrial Park — isn’t your discussion above just chump change compared to the opportunity cost or failure to lead?
If not you, who is responsible for the mess we are in? Why should people trust that you’ve changed?

So I’ve been deleted three times but I backed up my comment which I can circulate to people on my own or send in to city government and let the clerk decide to run it: I said something in these pages about when Pat Burt announced that he had been secretly contacted by John Arrillaga in defiance of policy and was about to be the subject of a grand jury probe which he himself oddly would later help rebut I made a joke about how he sounded, unbelievable. He said “we are going to take the lead here”. It’s like when my dog briefly wants to play tug-of-war he’s 14 pounds I’m 214 pounds. I didn’t say that then. But the point is if I had said Pat Burt is an Anjou three weeks short of ripe, that is not libel that is political speech or satire and in fact people said that about the French monarchy right before the revolution, literally the thing about pears.
At this point he is barely baby food.
Pat said “you’re morally detached from what you say” In a way that he looked like he was threatening a physical remedy. So I call him a bully. (note: three members of  leadership  when Pat was on council told me that he had treated them the same way, all eight others felt this way and they called it “being burted”. 

 

Pat Burt did vote with a 7-1 majority to give Sand Hill Properties millions of dollars worth of zoning bonuses for the headquarters at 1050 Page Mill Stanford industrial park of Machine Zone a video game maker. The leases overall at Stanford Park are worth $18b with a B. Is it any wonder our leaders lose every time to special interests?

 

So by deleting my previous comment, Pat Burt is assenting to my assertion that in twelve years in leadership everything he did benefitted the developers and special interests and nothing he did benefited We The People, his neighbors and Palo Altans.
I hope he runs again.

 

Deleting my comment does not refute my point.
Another example: these pages 2/13/19
In addition, without the cap, existing housing (such as the President apartments) may be converted to commercial. Council However, lifting the cap is a reason why we will lose those apartments and, potentially, other existing residential units in the future.
Monday’s actions were bad planning, bad policy and bad politics, all rolled into one.
[Portion removed.]

 

I tag this “platos republic” which means government, “words” because it has to do with lexicon; and “lumpialumpialumpia” which means either Philipines or food or that Pat Burt’s head looks like Jerry Lumpe of the Tigers after a close call at home plate. 

 

Pat what did you learn from the grand jury report that said leadership during your tenure enabled a secret Development plan by a very powerful individual contrary to our policies and not in the best interest of the citizens who you were sworn to represent?

 

This is the 34-page response to the Grand Jury Report, co-authored by Pat Burt and Greg Schmid, pertaining to secret simultaneous discussions about a office tower at 27 University (MacArthur Park/El Camino Park) and a 7.7 acre parcel at Foothill Park.
What, Mr Burt was the relationship between the two deals? Why did staff suggest adding a third element, a venue for an arts organization?

 

Mayor Burt said there’s always room for good people

and1:

To now avoid layoffs and retain community support for city employees, unionized city workers should opt to forego these previously agreed upon raises.
Oh, wait, I’m sorry, I didn’t read this carefully before: when you say “forego” these promises, you mean break our word. Got it. You really should jump back into leadership here, big guy.

(ok here I admit that I did misread this; Pat is not suggesting that force majeure the negotitions with a labor we should declare null and void, he is merely telling labor what they should do, for Pat. Which also reminds me that Joey Piziali a Paly grad – -and like Pat Burt’s father involved with football — and now an artist – -his is the mural on Cali Ave that looks like a whiffle ball melting – when I ran for council made me a mock campaign poster that said DON’T BULL SHIT A BULLSHITTER  which I tried to place at the PAW as an ad but they wouldn’t accept it. They wanted it to read DON’T    A  . 

 

This sort of repeats:

My opinion is that a better way to preserve, like pear baby food, City Services would be for Pat and Pat to butt out, or burt out.

I tag this “plato’s republic” which means government, “words” because it has to do with lexicon; and “lumpialumpialumpia” which means either Philipines or food or that Pat Burt’s head looks like Jerry Lumpe of the Tigers after a close call at home plate. Which of course reminds me of the softball fields at El Camino Park near where Pat Burt wanted to give away public lands to his rich buddy and puppet master puppy poop stepper inner, or that’ s my reading of the Grand Jury Report. What’s yours? Give away is a poetic and expedient term for it; the offer was more like $150,000 for 7.7 acres.
Before the song ‘Move Like Jagger” there was one here, but not by Le Levy, “Poop like Patrick” in the sense of not having verve enough to defend the Constitution.
