I ran into Mike Cobb the other day and mean to follow up with him regarding my campaign for Council 2014, and my thoughts on Cubberley; in truth I am not current with what the Cubberley ad hoc group led by Mandy Lowell are recommending. I respect Mr. Cobb, who I first met at a Cubberley advisory meeting when I was producing concerts there in the 1990s. Further, although I was shocked to learn that Mandy Lowell was Mrs. Charles Munger, it is still unclear to me what to make of that: I am not completely writing her off as a potential Democratic citizen. People I admire respect her. More to come. Note that the first segment is more organized than the subsequent two, that being the nature of communicating by email. Not sure where this document was filed, other than Reklis said it would be included.
Of the top of my head, I would keep Cub as a community center rather than let it be developed for housing. I wonder how it fits in with the proposal to stop Sobrato from turning Fry’s into more housing: I favor half-housing and half-park.
I am on my way to the Cubberley meeting at 7:30 tonight. While checking the time online, I became perhaps the last person in the room to learn that Mandy Lowell is also known as Mrs. Charles Munger (the Mungers who gave millions to defeat Prop 30 — I voted for Prop 30 — in Palo Alto you never know which billionaire or multi-millionaire in the elevator you will meet).
