I choose neither of the two, But,..Jesus Nava would be more inclined to handle issues if guided in the right prospective, This is a federally needy city,,..[portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff.] The "Brown Act",...continues to be a common function or rule in the City of EAST PALO ALTO!!!!!! Neither candidate has any experience other than thier said word of mouth and growing up in the locallity is definatley not enough. We need a highly qualified person with extreme experience in government and on the otherside ,diversity ,society,infrastructure ,Gangs ,.Crime,...and taxes,..community developement. This is not a farmtown for immigrants and free bees.

People I know & trust in Redwood City recommend Ms. Gonzalez. Both sound impressive. It'll be interesting to hear what City Council thinks.
