Anything to keep people's mind off the fact that the City Council has frittered away another year under this fellow, who has done nothing but focus on unimportant matters. At no time this year has "Mayor Yeh" seemed to recognize that there is a crime wave going on in town, or has he any idea of what to do about the problem.

I'm glad that the city is helping to provide transportation alternatives for our residents. We don't have enough space to keep paving more roads and parking lots. Bicycling is tremendously more efficient than driving and very practical for a wide variety of local trips. Events like this are very inexpensive for the city to produce, but still provide huge benefits to beginner bicycle commuters.

Ever been to a City Council Meeting? I went to one recently that was supposed to be about stopping the high speed rail from coming down the Peninsula, at least according to the flyer we received in the mail. By 10:00 pm, they had discussed eight other topics, seven of them trivial, and there were four more topics scheduled to be discussed before the issue of the high speed rail which, of course, was scheduled LAST. Most people had left by 9:00. As it was a week night, we left, never hearing about the issue we wanted to discuss. Of course, the audience was never allowed to speak during the session, so it was pointless, anyway
A year ago, I went to another Council Meeting, along with my neighbors, concerning some condos that a builder wanted approved on our street. We were all sent flyers with the time, date, and location. When nobody showed up after an hour, we went to,the front desk and asked what happened to the meeting that was supposed to start there an hour before. The lady at the desk made a phone call, and reported that the time and place of the meeting had been changed to an hour earlier than we had been told, and relocated to the fourth floor!! With no notice to anyone!! Then we were told the builder's requests had been approved, for lack,of opposition!!!
How crooked can they be? We obviously do not ask or expect enough of our community leaders. How else do we get a City Council and Mayor like this?
