I am sorry to hear this...all the best to Claude.
Much appreciation for all you do as a citizen here!
This is the time to get rid of ALL the incumbents … A clean
slate for a new and better Palo Alto.

"This is the time to get rid of ALL the incumbents … A clean

I like Karen Holman, and I don't think she falls into the category with Scharff and Sheperd who are Exhibit A of the "the building itself is a public benefit" school of thought (no thought).
I wonder Mr. Ezran, if your competition will come from the incumbents. Scharff and Sheperd certainly seem to be linked to a "power group" in Palo Alto, but this time around I hope the issues will be scrutinized and people won't be so disengaged to hilly nilly vote for their power circle. Too much is at stake.
"pulled candidacy papers" is an awkward, confusing, and unnecessary statement. I first thought those people were withdrawing.
Old Palo Alto-- I suggest you start a recall drive to,get rid,of the whole council.
Is the weekly waitng for,Holman to announce her candidacy before they investigate her recent financial statements-- especially regarding her 2013 document. She filed the statement saying she took in $10-100k in finders fees, then she said she she got nothing. Was the form submitted under oath? Will the weekly look into it? Does the weekly care?
Apparently there is some by invitation only party today involving Holman, Dubois and filseth. Are they running as a slate? One wonder if they know what the brown act is ( does not apply now, since they are not yet in the council, but makes you wonder what will happen if they are all elected). Was the weekly invited to this meeting? These are the kind of candidates the weekly loves-- not candidates that do not spend money like ezran, Weiss, frost etc.
Hang in there. Please flow your ideas to us all and the community to make a difference and to make Palo Alto ten times better than last four years.
I am delighted to see such interest in running for the City Council. I hope we can experience a number of neighborhood meetings, debates and candidate forums to fully vet all the candidates on the issues. Much is at stake in this election. Please Palo Altans pay attention, weigh in, and by all means vote.
Every incumbent who is running needs to be voted out. Remember their fiasco with 27 University. So much hidden behind the scenes. The Grand Jury and the Weekly brought the truth to the public.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
