Original post made by Daniel Mart, Mountain View, on Sep 7, 2011

Hi you all,

I really do hope that you will join us this Friday at 2 pm on the City Hall front plaza. I have also contacted Assemblyman Rich Gordon's office, as well as several newspapers. Dependng on the outcome of Friday's meeting, I am hoping to schedule an appointment with Rich's office ASAP.

For far too many years, the Palo Alto City Council has had a terrible reputation; making a number of extremely unpopular decisions, creating eyesores on El Camino, and ultimately ignoring the public. This Friday, September 9th, will be an opportunity to sit down with the mayor; to have a real heart-to-heart conversation about the issues and public concerns. To hopefully start the process of building a good city. A good Palo Alto.

The issue concernig Palo Alto Bowl is one of discrimination; not outright, but institutional. It is the biggest "local" discrimination case in my lifetime. "By far." Or at least that I can remember.

Thank you all so much for what you do.

Oh ... and remember: look for a blue walker and a guy with black-rimmed glasses, and that's me. :)

Hope to see you Friday.

Mr Mart--I hope you actually have a plan for keeping the bowling alley open and are not just planning to show up and claim discrimination (which this is not).
Also, have you brought these issues before the Mountain View City Council? as you are a Mountain View resident, I am not sure what obligation Palo Alto has to provide you with entertainment options.
