Palo Alto hardball and hidden ball trick

This is a power play or stunt to improve the odds, or so they think, of continuing the recent Real Estate rout.

Very similar, in my mind, to the vote to switch the election from 2011 to 2012.

Scharff and Shepherd will be scrutinized much more closely between now and November than they were in 2009. By us, We The People, if not by you, the Weekly, who after all let Scharff call himself “a country lawyer” when “real estate lawyer” or “real estate developer and landlord” and or “former head of acquisitions for Prometheus, a leading developer of rental property” (who incidentally are the ones trying to get upzoning and oust residents of Buena Vista). In Scharff’s own propaganda, he quoted the Weekly verbatim, minus changing “”country lawyer” to “{private practice]”.

Holman should run again, after checking in with her 20 most credible supporters, and distance herself from the ambiguity her recent statements represent.

But are there five or more quality people willing to step up here?

I texted a council person Monday and said “Good luck tonite. Keep Council at 9 not 7 in the name of Civic engagement and not an oligarchy. Mark W”

      Nice meeting you! I am meaning to swing by with a copy of a poster I made in 1995 for a Palo Alto appearance of a rock band called MIRV, I mentioned to your husband and he indicated he would want one.

      Also, I presume you notice the page, an article called “Palo Alto Yard Hockey”, that has the picture of you and Karen.

      This thing is kind of a jumble, I admit.
