This morning’s Daily Post front page headline reads; “Burt decries ‘succession of falsehoods’.
In reality, the true message that city council member Pat Burt was really conveying to opponents of the California Avenue project was that they are all nothing but a bunch of trouble making citizens bent on spreading “falsehoods “or fabricating their business concerns.
That’s the underlining sense we got behind the true message Pat Burt delivered to the Cal. Ave. merchants this past Monday.
As a political leader, he should spend more time dispelling merchant’s fears concerning this project rather than bullying merchants into submission on a project the merchants feel will hurt there businesses. Is he listening? We don’t think so.
What most our local politicians fail to remember is that they were elected to serve the people of the city of Palo Alto rather than spewing self gratifying statements of doubt. Council member Pat Burt needs to be reminded and for that matter ALL of our elected officials that the citizens of Palo Alto are the one’s who are ultimately in charge. (see feature article photo)
You report to us!!
The only gratifying conclusion one can draw from the Daily Post’s article is that Pat Burt is up for re-election and We The People can vote him out…
