Trying to milk Stanford for money
Original post made by Not so fast, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Mar 13, 2007
Looks like another example of the council trying to use different standards when dealing with Stanford.
Of particular note is this quotation from Drekmeier:
"This is something they can afford," said Council Member Peter Drekmeier. "
Drekmeier, who prior to his days on the council was an noted Stanford basher, seems to think that Stanford is cash cow that the city of Palo Alto can milk to make up for their ineptitude in managing their resources and money.
By the way, I wonder if anyone bothered to ask Benest, Baum and the rest of our city leaders where they planned to build the affordable housing with the money they would have gotten from Stanford.
