Write in for Tim Gray

Original post made by Resident, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Sep 22, 2014

Since the positive posts for Tim Gray appear to be deleted while the negative ones remain, I will try this tactic.

I think we need Tim Gray on our City Council. It is a great shame he was not elected last time.

Why isn't he running?

@ Eggs,
I can't speak for him, but what I gleaned is that his family wasn't keen on his going through a campaign right now. He's got a lot of kids, and works a pretty demanding job. I suspect of all the potential write-ins, he might be convinced to serve if he won, but I don't think we can officially do a write in unless he puts himself in the ring as a write in.

I got to see how Gray works during the Maybell situation, and saw how principled, intelligent, and brave he was. I still can't believe he was willing to be the person who debated the mayor on behalf of the neighborhood. After seeing how effective he was, diplomatic - I was really sad that he hadn't gotten on the Council.

Instead of throwing your vote away on a write-in, you should vote for the candidates whose views are closest to Tim Gray's. The last thing we need is divided voting allowing the incumbents to sneak back into office. Maybe Mr.Gray could share some endorsements?

I would be very interested to hear which candidates Tim Gray endorses.
