What this city needs is a good tag line

Original post made by Desperate for a tag line on Mar 6, 2008

Friends and neighbors,

In the spirit of civic engagement, I believe what this city really needs is a good tag line. Something that really captures what this city is all about.

Just complete the sentence:

Palo Alto: The City That [insert rest tag line here]

or

Palo Alto: The City Where [insert rest of tag line here]

Perhaps we could even have a contest. Grand prize could be one years worth of free home delivery of the Sunday edition of the Palo Alto Daily News.

San Francisco calls itself "the city that knows how", so Palo Alto could be "the city where 57000 people will tell you how".

AWaltWatcher, have someone twice your age explain Brave New World to you, in words a Delta can understand. Ford bless you.

Palo Alto--Home of the Climate Change Queen, Yoriko Kishimoto. Where no decision is made by the City Council until EVERYONE is satisfied.
