So why can't this sort of information be made available via the Internet, so that everyone can learn how the City "works" without having to spend $2,500?
Municipal finance matters, and the legal framework of our City, should be available to all--at no cost.

Q: Why would any civic minded citizen pay $2,500 to participate in a program to learn about leadership in Palo Alto?
A: There is a cost/benefit relationship.
Somehow, becoming a leader allows the individual to recoup the $2,500. Leadership Palo Alto is designed to financially benefit the leaders, not the public. Architects, bankers, lawyers, realtors, hoteliers and politicians are all serving their own best interest.
What ever happened to public service?

Right - Leadership Palo Alto is a real threat to our community - trying to fill the void in civic, unpaid positions in the city government - how dare they!
