No, but this is the time to reduced the Palo Alto City Council from nine to seven members. Seven would be just as efficient as nine and there would be less talk, talk, talk and meetings lasting 'till 1:00 AM.

For the school board, there will be 3 seats up for election. Heidi Emberling is declared - Web Link. She is enthusiastic and has an education background, though she seems more like a "do-er" than a "governor." We'll see.
I expect that only 1-2 of the incumbents will run. That said, there seem to be no lack of folks with strong views about how the schools and/or the school board should run out there.

I'm still waiting for 'marrol' to announce his candidacy for City Council. Our Greatest Expert on Civic Financial Responsibility shouldn't just hide all that talent and concern behind a computer alias. Or is he just content to sit back and lecture everyone on what should be done?
