I read them all, and watched as much as I could stomach.

The only video That captured my attention was Smokey Wallace.

All the others are the same old issues and answers from council candidates going back for years.

Smokey is the only one who shows any new pragmatic rational thinking about Palo Alto issues.

Bill Ross is my choice for a new voice on the City Council. He is an honest, straight-forward person who has legitimate concerns for our city. We need his experience and his rich knowledge about city government. I sincerely hope that he will be elected to represent all of the citizens of Palo Alto. He will make an enormous contribution to the future of Palo Alto.

( Pointing out that he as spent money to hire a political consultant seemed naive to me. Most of the fliers and brochures that we receive have been originated by professionals.)

I agree with Logical except I would leave his words "pragmatic rational" and just put it as "new thinking". I will probably vote for only Wallace.
