‘New Residentialists’ Send Message with Four Thousand Votes For Weiss

I wrote this day after election. My actual tally was more like 4,300, a dramatic step up from the 800 or so from 2009, especially when you consider I have spent no money so far on either campaign.
If I do not run in 2014, and I have about 30 days to decide whether to pull papers, I will certainly cover the race at Plastic Alto.

“Svayambh-P.A.” — the name references a famous work of art by a famous sculptor — comprised 54 essays on sundry political topics, from local to global, from nuts and bolts to abstract realms, that to date has garnered about 3,000 views, much of that post-election.

Mark Weiss received 4,016 votes for 2012 Palo Alto City Council without spending dollar one on his campaign. The result sends a clear message to the pro-developer establishment (Pat Burt, Liz Kniss, Marc Berman) that the average Palo Altan is going to watch all future projects that much more closely.

There is a meeting Thursday evening about Cubberley.

Twenty-seven University (“Arrillaga Office Towers and Theatre”) “potential project” deserves a thorough vetting by concerned citizens.

Stay tuned!

This is Mark Weiss and I resemble this message: TAKE BACK THE TOWN FROM POWERFUL DOWNTOWN AND DEVELOPER SPECIAL INTERESTS. (That’s me above casting my votes for Obama, Weiss, Schmid, Townsend and more).

edit to add: who would have thought that after all something as simple as rock and roll could save us all?
