Hey Mr. Kramer, I asked my four year old daughter about noise levels and she said noise on the sidewalk shouldn't be any louder than an ostrich feather tickling an ant. My point is the City Attorney is who interprets City ordinances not the Planning Department. What has the City Attorney told you about noise levels? Is it possible someone in the Planning Department was in error or misunderstood your question? Ask the city attorney your question and write us all back with your answer. I'll protest with you if the City Attorney agrees with you...

"His more than 10,000 votes are impressive; in the off-year 2007 election, neither incumbent received as many votes."
Why is this "impressive"? If less people vote, then you get less votes. Seems kind of obvious.

Can hardly believe, still, that Ken Dauber lost. With all his campaign signs everywhere, it looked like everyone supported him. But apparently some people do one thing publicly and another in the voting booth. How else did W get elected, when no one will admit to having voted for him.

It seemed there was a bit of a smear campaign going on the last two weeks, which probably changed a few minds. It's a shame, because I think the Scool Board is the less for it.

I saw Mr Dauber himself planting his own signs in public areas near the street in Palo Alto. So those signs you saw in town were not necessarily indicative of actual support by anyone.

What I can't believe is how his clique is not accepting his defeat. Get used to it: he lost. In my opinion, there are many more interesting topics to talk about now that the election is over, than the fate of Mr. Dauber.

Sara: I appreciate your letter concerning Ken Dauber. I agree 100% with your comments. As far as I can see, Ken and his supporters have graciously accepted the will of the voters. It is hard to understand how posters such as "Mr. Dauber lost" are continuing to lie about Ken. Indeed there are more interesting topics to talk about other than the negatives this poster has set forth. Sara, your letter covers all of the positives about Ken's candidacy and for that I am grateful. I am grateful to Ken for giving the voters a choice and for running a clean, issues-based campaign. I am sure that many of his ideas (and those supported by WCDBPA) will be implemented in the future and our community will be wondering why it has seemed like pulling teeth to get people to accept some of the obvious improvements advocated by Ken, WCDBPA and many others with no formal ties to either.
