As someone who is very much at odds with Williams now, and how it seems like staff has been engaged in advocacy for one side in the Maybell project, I agree with Bob Moss. Williams knows how to treat everyone with respect so people are really engaging and not just being humored, even when he disagrees. He is willing to say he disagrees and provide information, rather than being manipulative. I respect that. I also like him personally, even while I hate what he is doing! It's a difficult job, and I think he's been one of the better ones.

Curtis- I got to know you when you worked in Woodside. You've earned the respect in Palo Alto, too. Good luck in retirement.

Curtis Williams will be missed. He was knowledgable, fair, candid, and got the job done. Wish there were many more like him in the public sector.
