My ranked choice of Palo Alto’s ten candidates (although we can choose four):
2. Greer Stone
3. Raven Malone
4. Lydia Kou (I)
5. Steven Lee
6. Ed Lauing
7. Cari Templeton
8. Pat Burt
Burt is personally responsible for the decrepit state of our affairs, and our inability to self-govern, and the real estate rout. He personifies the corruption described in the Grand Jury Report. I liked his praise for the Obama book, although I have not read it. He’s frail looking but it’s hard to believe he’s grown out of his bullying former self. Move on, buh-bye!
9. Greg Tanaka
10. Ajit Varma
Considering how much I deplore Tanaka and Burt, this guy had to work hard to earn my cellar. His favorite book is by a loud mouth new rich capitalist monster; he basically thinks Democracy exists to fuel Big Business. This man epitomizes the dark side of the proliferation of the semiconductor industry.
