'The times, they are not a-changin'

Original post made by WilliamR, Fairmeadow, on Nov 28, 2007

From the Palo Alto Weekly, Wednesday, October 20, 1999:

"Candidates in this year's City Council race can expect to face several thorny issues if elected, including selection of a new city manager, review of a controversial plan for the city's libraries and funding an array of capital projects such as a proposed public safety building. But the most visible and lasting decisions are likely to concern development and, more specifically, how to control growth in Palo Alto in the midst of Silicon Valley's roaring economy."

Was this really written in 1999? I thought it was written last night.

Yes, I had kept the paper for another reason, and found it over the weekend. Then with Frank Benest's resignation announcement yesterday, I couldn't resist posting it.
