What the article does not say is that this is a pro-development seal pup and is being groomed for a seat on the planning commission….
(presumably to replace Arthur Keller….)
The commissioner article, in comments, has this relatively courageous post by “Henry from Downtown North”
Larry Klein is personally responsible for demeaning and alienating so many members of the public that it is stunningly disingenuous for him to make statements about honoring commissioners. Actions speak louder than words!
Here is a ping-back to a related sentiment by yours svayambh-paly, from a ways back, on “Plastic Alto”: this.
edit to add, again, about 40 minutes later: Floodgate Dolly, the Mayoral Candidate and seal pup, goes into the lexicon of great Palo Alto critters like Rufus the Bobcat, the black mambo snake and the mountain lion shot by a member of public safety, who either told me or told the paper that she later had a good cry.
